JACKSONVILLE Adidas Ryan Johansen Jersey , Fla. (AP) Don’t rule out Blake Bortles being Jacksonville’s starting quarterback beyond this season.

Bortles has been surprisingly and consistently efficient through the halfway point and is one of the reasons the Jaguars (5-3) have matched their best start in a decade.

He’s been even better that what coach Doug Marrone and top executive Tom Coughlin expected when they built the team to pound the ball on the ground, take advantage of play-action passes and avoid shootouts with stout defense.

Bortles has completed a career-best 59.4 percent of his passes for 1,657 yards, with 10 touchdowns and five interceptions. He delivered one of the best performances of his four years Sunday against Cincinnati. He threw for 259 yards and a touchdown, scrambled for another 20 yards and played turnover-free, sack-free football for the third time this season and the fourth time in 53 games.

He has growing support in the locker room and in the front office.

”Blake’s been balling,” veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis said. ”He’s doing everything we’re asking him to do and then some.”

And he’s doing it without several key players.

Top receiver Allen Robinson (knee) was lost for the season in the opener. Rookie running back Leonard Fournette missed the past two games Arden Key Jersey Elite , one because of a sprained ankle and the other because he violated a team rule . Center Brandon Linder missed three games because of an undisclosed illness. Rookie receiver Dede Westbrook has yet to play following core muscle surgery.

Bortles continues to get the offense in the correct plays, and more importantly, he’s avoiding game-changing mistakes.

”I feel good,” Bortles said following a 23-7 victory against the Bengals. ”We are a running team first. There is no secret about that. I think everybody knows it, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have the ability to throw the ball.

”We run the ball because that is what we are the most effective at. That’s how we can control the game and control the clock, keep the other offense off the field, so that’s what we do and we are good at it.

”When there are times that we need to throw the ball John Kelly Jersey Elite , we are good at that, too.”

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict might even acknowledge that now.

The outspoken defender made headlines this week by saying, ”I’m not sure Blake can beat us. We want to put it in his hands and have him beat us, if he can.”

Bortles responded on the field , helping the Jaguars win consecutive games for the first time in 13 months and win at EverBank Field for the first time since last December. He took a shot at Burfict and receiver A.J. Green, who retaliated and punched trash-talking cornerback Jalen Ramsey late in the first half.

”I thought we did a good job playing as hard as we possibly can between the whistles and beating the (heck) out of them,” Bortles said.

Bortles wants to run up the score as well.

Jacksonville had the ball at the Cincinnati 1-yard line with 35 seconds remaining Wholesale DaeSean Hamilton Jersey , and Bortles started lobbying to run a play to score. Coach Doug Marrone overruled him, telling him to take a knee.Imagem

”At the time and the moment, playing against those guys, I wanted to score again,” Bortles said.

Bortles might really score after the season. The Jaguars picked up the fifth-year option in his rookie contract, meaning they could keep him on the roster for $19 million in 2018. It wouldn’t be the craziest idea, especially considering Jacksonville is built to win now.

Bortles knows the offense Authentic Da'Shawn Hand Jersey , and if he continues to take care of the ball and beat teams with his arm, the Jaguars might decide to stick with him.

”I feel good going into each week,” he said. ”I feel comfortable. There is obviously different things that happen on Sunday and you just have to figure it out and make corrections on and overcome.”

GLENDALE Korey Toomer Super Bowl LI Jersey , Ariz. (AP) Jon Gillies looked a bit foolish when he lost sight of the puck at his feet and turned the wrong way as Derek Stepan tucked in a first-minute goal.

”I don’t think you say, `Oh, boy,”’ the Calgary rookie said. ”I didn’t know where it went and it ended up on his stick. Just a bad bounce.”

Gillies rebounded to make 35 saves in his first NHL start of the season to help the Flames beat the Arizona Coyotes 5-2 on Thursday night.

”Little bit of rust to shake off,” he said.

Called up from Stockton of the AHL with former Coyotes goalie Mike Smith sidelined by a lower-body injury, Gillies made his third appearance of the season and fourth overall in the NHL. The 6-foot-6 former Providence College goalie started and won his NHL debut last April against Los Angeles.

”He was a little nervous in the beginning Authentic Daniel Kilgore Jersey , but he settled right in,” Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said. ”What I like about him is he’s a big guy that’s not afraid to challenge, but he’s not overly aggressive in his movements. He doesn’t slide out of the net, he’s real controlled. A great big body that plays big.”

Johnny Gaudreau had a goal and two assists, Sean Monahan added a goal and an assist, and Sam Bennett Adidas Sidney Crosby Jersey , Mark Jankowski and Matthew Tkachuk also scored.

Coming off a 7-3 loss Wednesday night at Vegas with David Rittich in goal, Calgary snapped a three-game losing streak and improved to 9-3-1 in its last 13 road games.

”I liked our compete level tonight,” Monahan said. ”We were hungry and we weren’t happy with how we performed last night.”

Stepan and Kevin Connauton scored for Arizona. Off since beating Edmonton 1-0 in a Saturday matinee at Gila River Arena, the NHL-worst Coyotes had won four straight and were 5-0-1 in their last six.

”We didn’t have it tonight and it’s going to be tough to play in this league against teams battling for a playoff spot,” Stepan said. ”You got to come right in and play every single night. That’s what pros do.”

Bennett and Gaudreau gave the Flames a 2-1 lead with goals 2:16 apart midway through the first period. Bennett deflected Gaudreau’s pass past goalie Antti Raanta, and Gaudreau came down the open left side and fired a wrist shot that squeezed under the goalie’s right leg pad for his 20th of the season.

”Had a good start and two blown coverages Cliff Avril Super Bowl LI Jersey ,” Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said.

Monahan made it 3-1 midway through the second with his team-leading 28th goal, deflecting Dougie Hamilton’s centering pass past Raanta. Jankowski scored a short-handed goal early in the third, and Tkachuk added his 24th of the season midway through the period. Connauton scored with 2:30 left.

Arizona’s Zac Rinaldo hammered Matt Stajan with a shoulder check early in the first, and the Flames’ Micheal Ferland retaliated by fighting Rinaldo the next time the Arizona forward hit the ice. Stajan returned to the game for his next shift.

”Our guys got physical and we scored right after that,” Gulutzan said. ”Our guys rallied around that hit.”


Arizona signed Darcy Kuemper to a two-year contract extension Mason Cole Super Bowl LI Jersey , a day after acquiring the 27-year-old goalie from Los Angeles for speedy forward Tobias Rieder and goalie Scott Wedgewood. The 6-foot-5 Kuemper was 10-1-3 with a 2.10 goals-against average and three shutouts in 19 games for the Kings this season. He backed up Raanta against the Flames.

NOTES: Smith missed a chance to make his first start in Arizona since an offseason trade to the Flames. Smith spent the previous six seasons with the Coyotes. In Calgary on Nov. 30, he beat Arizona 3-0. He was injured Feb. 11 in the final seconds of a victory at the New York Islanders. … Hamilton and Mark Giordano each had two assists for Calgary.


Flames: Host Colorado on Saturday.

Coyotes: Host Anaheim on Saturday night.
