LANDOVER, Md. Jose Quintana Jersey . -- Ben Roethlisberger knew the retired Heath Miller, suspended teammates LeVeon Bell and Martavis Bryant and the injured Markus Wheaton werent walking through that door. So he put the Pittsburgh Steelers young, largely untested offense on his shoulders.Roethlisberger threw for three touchdowns to lead the Steelers to a 38-16 rout of the Washington Redskins on Monday night. After telling his teammates he believed in not just All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown but Eli Rogers, Sammie Coates and others, Roethlisberger recovered a fumble at a pivotal moment and completed 27 of 37 passes for 300 yards in the season-opening victory.He threw two touchdowns to Brown and another to Rogers. Often playing on the opposite side from Josh Norman and tormenting cornerback Bashaud Breeland, Brown made eight catches for 126 yards.Starting in place of Bell, DeAngelo Williams ran for 143 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries.Were confident in that group, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. I know we were missing some pieces tonight, but we had `7. And when you got `7 you got the chance to put together performances like that.Washington led 6-0 and appeared to have another scoring opportunity late in the first quarter when linebacker Ryan Kerrigan sacked and stripped Roethlisberger deep in Pittsburgh territory. Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey knocked the ball out of Kerrigans hands, and Roethlisberger dived on it at his own 13-yard line.The ball was on the ground and Pounce was kind of laying on it and I was trying to tell Pouncey it was right under his leg, Roethlisberger said. Any time you can get those balls back, its huge.Roethlisberger then guided Pittsburgh 87 yards down the field, finishing the drive with a 29-yard touchdown pass to Brown on a gutsy fourth-and-1 call from the Washington 29.We knew it was coming; I knew it was coming, Breeland said. Thats why I played it the way I played it. It was just a freak play, and he made the play. Thats all I can say.The next time he got the ball, Big Ben took the Steelers 67 yards on 14 plays to make it 14-6.Pittsburghs passing attack got clicking, but Kirk Cousins and the Redskins couldnt keep up. With Matt Jones and the running game grounded and tight end Jordan Reed taken out of the picture, Cousins finished 30 of 43 for 329 yards and two interceptions.Washington got it as close as 24-16 on Chris Thompsons fourth-quarter touchdown. Then Roethlisberger was at it again, taking the Steelers 77 yards as Williams put the game away with a 15-yard touchdown run to break the 30-point mark.PRIME TIME READY: Tomlin improved to 11-2 on Monday night, including 6-2 on the road and 2-0 at Washington. Pittsburgh is 4-1 when opening the season on Monday night, and the Steelers 44-24 record on MNF is third-best in the NFL behind Seattle (23-6) and San Francisco (47-25).The Redskins have lost 15 of their past 16 Monday Night home games.HOPPING HOPKINS: Washington kicker Dustin Hopkins made all three of his field-goal attempts, connecting from 31, 40 and 34 yards. Hopkins was the Redskins entire offensive production until Thompsons touchdown.PINBALL ROGERS: Rogers first career touchdown catch in his NFL debut was a pinball special. Roethlisbergers pass from the 3-yard line hit receiver Sammie Coates and then Rogers facemask before he finished the grab.SHAZIER, PLAYMAKER: The play after forcing a fumble that the Redskins recovered, Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier picked off Cousins to set up Browns 26-yard TD catch in the third quarter. Shazier left the game with a right knee injury and was being evaluated after the game. Tomlin said hed have more information Tuesday.RUNNING ON EMPTY: Jones was in the starting lineup after separating his left shoulder on Aug. 19, but he lost 4 yards on his first two carries and finished with 24 yards on seven carries. Washington totaled 55 yards rushing, including just 28 in the first half.REED OPTION: Reed caught three passes for 39 yards on the Redskins opening drive and was a nonfactor with four catches for 25 yards the rest of the way.QUOTABLETomlin on why he called a pass to the end zone on fourth-and-1: We play to win.Norman: They took us behind the woodshed today and wore our tail out. It was a good, old-fashioned butt whooping.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Mike Montgomery Jersey . On June 12, just as the sun sets on the magnificent historical city of Sao Paulo the inventors, innovators and purveyors of “joga bonitowill” open their campaign. The opponent, Croatia and all its football might and will. As opposites do attract we are set for a corker of an opener. Chicago Cubs Jerseys . -- Ken Appleby made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 2-0 win over the Belleville Bulls on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.cubsteamproshop.com/cubs-fergie-jenkins-jersey/ . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night.James Anderson bowled England to victory by an innings and 88 runs against Sri Lanka at Headingley, recording match figures of 10-45 to move up to sixth on list of all-time Test wicket-takers. Its the latest in a long line of great moments in the fast-bowlers career. Here are six that have stood out... Trent Bridge tension (2013 Ashes) James Anderson sets off to celebrate the final wicket to fall at Trent Bridge in 2013 The first Test of the 2013 Ashes was a thriller, with 19-year-old Aussie Ashton Agars 98 on debut, Ian Bells first of three hundreds in the series, Stuart Broads lucky escape when not given out off a thick edge to first slip and Brad Haddins 65-run partnership with James Pattinson.Australias last-wicket pair took them to within 15 runs of victory, but up stepped Anderson - with nine wickets already in the match - to find the inside edge of Haddins bat through to Matt Prior. Umpire Aleem Dar wasnt convinced, nor were many of the England fielders who offered up a half-hearted appeal and belatedly reviewed the decision. The edge was confirmed and Anderson led a jubilant England charge in the outfield.Anderson loves bowling at Trent Bridge. In eight matches at the ground, hes taken 53 wickets at 19.24 apiece. Six of his 16 five-fors have come at the venue and both of his 10-wicket hauls.Dream debut (v Zimbabwe, 2003) James Anderson bowls another Zimbabwe batsman on debut at Lords He was raw, he was unconventional and he was wayward at times, but boy was he exciting to watch! Anderson had only played three one-day games for Lancashire when the 20-year-old was drafted in as a late replacement for Englands ODI tour of Australia. Impressive performances at the World Cup followed which meant that by the time the first Test of the 2003 summer came around, already a lot was expected of the newly-nicknamed Burnley Express.He more than delivered on those expectations, with 5-73 against an albeit far-from-testing Zimbabwe outfit. He bowled full, fast inswinging yorkers, castling four of his five victims.And long before Kevin Pietersen experimented with the colourful spectrum of hair dyes from his local Boots, Jimmy was setting the trend (if we want to call it that) by rocking some questionable highlights.Triumphant return (v New Zealand, 2008) James Anderson is mobbed by his team-mates after another strike in New Zealand Form and fitness had torn apart Englands troublesome trio of Steve Harmison, Freddie Flintoff and Simon Jones from the 2005 Ashes. Harmison was still around, as was Matthew Hoggard for Englands 2008 tour to New Zealand, but with the two returning combined figures of 2-272 in the first Test defeat in Hamilton, England moved on.Back in came Anderson, and Stuart Broad for only his second Test. Anderson took seven wickets at Wellington, including a five-for in the first innings, and he and Broad would go on to form the foundation for the golden era in English cricket that was expected post-2005.Three straight Ashes triumphs spanning 2009-2013 followed, including a first win down under for 24 years, and the number one Test ranking was also secured.Destroyer Down Under (Ashes, 2010/11) James Anderson celebrates the wicket of Ricky Ponting in the Adelaide Test The pinnacle of that England dominance was their first Ashes win in Australia since 1986/87, with Anderson comfortably the leading wicket taker in the series with 24 scalps.There were early signs of his impact in the drawn first Test which was dominated by the bat. Before Englands incredible 517-1 declared to save the Brisbane Test, Mike Hussey and Brad Haddin put on 307 runs of their own for the sixth wicket in Australias innings. It didnt tell the whole story as Anderson bowled one of his best wicketless spells of his career with eight probing overs of the highest quality to the pair costing just 14 runs.He got his rewards early in the second Test in Adelaide, taking the wickets of Shane Watson and Ricky Ponting as Australia were reduced to 2-3. It set the tone for the rest of the series and sent England on their way to their historic series win, despite a hiccup at Perth - which still provided a memorable Anderson moment when a chirping Mitchell Johnson was silenced.Beating Botham (v West Indies, 2015) James Anderson broke the England Test wicket record after dismissing West Indies captain Denesh Ramdin in Antigua Anderson overtook Beefy to become Englands all-time leading Test wicket taker during the first Test against West Indies in Barbados, with Denesh Ramdin becoming his 384th victim, almost 12 years after Zimbabwes Mark Vermeulen had become his first. Jason Heyward Jersey. Cook showed safe hands in the slip cordon to take the catch, while Botham was the first to congratulate Anderson, even promising the seamer an enormous bottle of wine upon his return home!Jimmy could not inspire his country to victory at North Sound, with hometown boy Jason Holder scoring a defiant hundred to ensure the game ended in a draw, but the leader of England’s pack propelled his side to a win in the next Test, in Grenada, with a quite outstanding display.Anderson had a hand in all six West Indies wickets taken on the morning of day five, dismissing Kraig Brathwaite - with an absolute ripsnorter, we must add - Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Marlon Samuels, before taking two crisp catches and running out Holder with a direct hit.Headingley heroics v Sri Lanka, 2016) Watch the pick of the action from the third day of the first Test between England and Sri Lanka. Going into the match in Leeds, Anderson told an interviewer that he had wanted to turn round and go home when he arrived at the Headingley gates in the past, such was his record at the ground. However, three days and 10 wickets later, the Lancastrians feelings towards the home of Yorkshire cricket may well have softened.After England had made 298 in their first innings, Anderson came to the fore as Sri Lanka were skittled for just 98. He had Kaushal Silva caught behind in his first spell but it was his second that really impressed. The 33-year-old came back into the attack and, after taking the key wicket of Angelo Mathews, took full advantage of bowler-friendly conditions - nicking out Dasun Shanaka with a beauty - to finish with 5-16. If anything, Anderson stepped it up another gear in the second innings. Both openers edged through to Jonny Bairstow behind the stumps as, while Englands other seamers struggled to match their first innings showing, Jimmy looked to have the ball on a string.He bowled Kusal Mendis, who had made a half-century, and undid Shanaka again with another corker before wrapping up the innings, and the match, by making a mess of Nuwan Pradeeps stumps. 10-45 his match figures as he rose to sixth on the list of all-time Test wicket-takers.
