SEATTLE - Aaron Rodgers was sore the whole game, even if he didnt always show it. Pele Brazil Jersey .Battling his left calf sprain, Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers built a 19-7 lead in the NFC championship game before stumbling in the fourth quarter for a 28-22 overtime loss to the defending champion Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.The Seahawks return to the Super Bowl. The Packers go home.We had some chances early, we had some chances late to do some things, and didnt do it, Rodgers said. When I go back and think about it, I think at times we just werent playing as aggressive as we usually are.Russell Wilsons 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse in the extra period won it.The Packers defence intercepted the Seahawks Russell Wilson four times and forced five Seattle turnovers. Wilson was sacked five times.But it all fell apart for Green Bay at the end. The Packers couldnt muster a fourth-quarter first down and failed to corral an onside kick as Seattle seized the momentum. Afterward, Rodgers admitted the calf bothered him the whole game.Losses are bad either way, Rodgers said. But the way we lost, up two scores, late in the game, with the ball, you expect to put that game away.Rodgers sore calf was a focus going into the game.Injured against Tampa Bay in Week 16, Rodgers was limited in practice before Green Bays 26-21 victory over the Dallas Cowboys last weekend. Throwing mostly out of shotgun formation, he finished with 313 yards passing and three touchdowns.He was limited in practice again this week as the team prepared for the Seahawks.But he had a track record of overcoming obstacles in the playoffs. The Packers were 10-6 in the regular season in 2010 before beating Philadelphia in a wild-card game, top-seeded Atlanta in divisional playoff game and then Chicago for the NFC championship. Rodgers was the MVP after leading Green Bay to a 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl.With his calf clearly taped underneath his sock on Sunday, Rodgers finished with 178 yards passing with a touchdown and was intercepted twice.Rodgers looked to be handling the pain well at the start. Although he was intercepted on Green Bays first drive, the Packers returned the favour on Seattles subsequent drive, when Ha Ha Clinton-Dix intercepted Wilson.The Seahawks defence held Green Bay out of the end zone, and Mason Crosby capped the drive with an 18-yard field goal.Seattles next drive ended when receiver Doug Baldwin fumbled and Packers safety Morgan Burnett recovered at the Seahawks 23. But the Packers settled again for a 19-yard field goal from Crosby.Rodgers hit Randall Cobb with a 13-yard scoring pass, his lone TD pass of the game. Crosbys 40-yard field goal made it 16-0 and Sam Shields intercepted Wilsons attempt to Kearse in the end zone with 1:55 to go in the half.The Seahawks narrowed it to 16-7 on a fake field goal and touchdown pass by holder Jon Ryan with 4:44 left in the third quarter. But Green Bay added Crosbys 48-yard field goal with 10:53 left in the game to extend the lead to 19-7.Thats when it all fell apart for the Packers.Andrew Quarless missed a third-and-4 pass from Rodgers at the Green Bay 19. The Packers intercepted Wilson on his first throw from scrimmage, but Green Bay again went three and out.Wilson scored on a 1-yard keeper with 2:09 left, and then the Seahawks recovered the onside kick when the ball landed in Chris Matthews hands after it was bobbled by Green Bays Brandon Bostick.That led to Marshawn Lynchs 24-yard touchdown run and a 2-point conversion put Seattle in front 22-19.Rodgers was steady, leading a drive to the Seattle 36, but his third-down pass to Jordy Nelson fell short and Green Bay settled for Crosbys 48-yard field goal to tie it and send the game to overtime.Seattle won the toss, and the crowd at CenturyLink Field roared.You cant let them complete a pass for a touchdown on a fake field goal, you cant give up an onside kick, and you cant not get any first downs in the fourth quarter and expect to win, Rodgers said.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Geferson Brazil Jersey .

Chris Heisey connected for his first grand slam and Devin Mesoraco homered and drove in a career high-tying four runs as Cincinnati took advantage of Tampa Bays depleted pitching staff for a 12-4 victory on Sunday. http://www.officialbrazilonline.com/world-cup-roberto-firmino-football-jersey/ . Tony Parker had 33 points and nine assists and San Antonio never trailed in a resounding 116-92 victory over Portland, bullying the younger Trail Blazers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals.TORONTO -- Brett Lawries latest injury has the Toronto Blue Jays confused because theyre not sure quite how it happened. Lawrie felt something wrong in his left oblique muscle during batting practice earlier this week and now hes out a month. Even confounded by the cause of Lawries injury amid a season full of them, general manager Alex Anthopoulos doesnt blame the artificial turf at Rogers Centre. "I dont know that the injuries weve had have been linked to this," Anthopoulos said during a wide-ranging meeting with reporters Thursday afternoon. "Is there a wear and tear component to it? Sure. Im not denying that. "I just think its too easy to say everything relates back to the turf." Anthopoulos pointed to Lawries 2013 oblique injury happening at spring training in Florida and then at the World Baseball Classic in Arizona, all while running on grass. A couple of the third basemans other injuries, a broken finger from getting hit by a pitch and sprained ankle from sliding into a base, couldve happened anywhere. First baseman Adam Lind is out with a fractured right foot now but landed on the disabled list earlier this season with back problems, and Jose Reyes and Colby Rasmus each missed time with hamstring injuries. Reyes aggravated his hamstring ailment on the turf at Montreals Olympic Stadium, which Anthopoulos said used to be like "cement" when the Expos were there. Rogers Centre uses AstroTurf GameDay Grass, which gets rolled up for other events. Anthopoulos conceded that the turf can flatten out the more that its rolled but doesnt consider it the reason some players have gotten injured. "Guys that have Tommy John (elbow surgery), I dont think theres an impact," he said. "Adam Lind broke his foot. "It wasnt like a sledgehammer came up out of the turf and slammed him down on the foot." Edwin Encarnacion strained his right quadriceps muscle while running the bases in Oakland, and his rehab setback came when swinging in Dunedin, Fla. When a reporter relayed a story to Anthopoulos that opposing players have run to first and said to Lind, "I dont know how you play on this every day," the GM said he has heard the same thing before. Renato Augusto Brazil Jersey. But he also doesnt want to make the turf an excuse because the Blue Jays are locked into playing on it through at least 2017, when the stadium lease for the CFLs Toronto Argonauts expires. Anthopoulos said president Paul Beeston and members of the organization were exploring the possibility of changing the surface to grass. Five retractable-roof parks -- the Arizona Diamondbacks Chase Field, Houston Astros Minute Maid Park, Seattle Mariners Safeco Field, Milwaukee Brewers Miller Park and Miamis Marlins Park -- have natural grass, so the technology is available. "Would players certainly prefer to play on grass? Absolutely. Would I love to see grass? Absolutely," Anthopoulos said. "I know no matter what, the turf is there. "Its not going anywhere, at least for the next few years. So theres no point spending time on something that isnt going to change." Anthopoulos said it was a "total cop out" to blame the turf for any of the Blue Jays losing, pointing to the Tampa Bay Rays recent success. Rogers Centre and Tampa Bays Tropicana Field are the only two Major League Baseball stadiums left with artificial turf. Asked if the turf was a problem in signing free agents, Anthopoulos pointed to the two World Series won in the building formerly known as SkyDome in 1992 and 1993. But back then, the Blue Jays were among 10-of-26 major league teams playing on turf and one-of-five in domed stadiums. Anthopoulos wasnt sure if turf being more prevalent back then affected then-GM Pat Gillicks discussions with free agents, but he implied its not the driving force behind players signing or not signing with the Blue Jays during his regime. "Even in the past, when weve been able to bid high, whether its years or dollars, weve been able to get players," Anthopoulos said. "Do I think when things are very close, can it have an impact? Sure. But I dont think turf has anything to do with you win or lose games." NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
