Blog Entry: MORGANTOWN, W. Zach Strief Jersey .Va. -- West Virginia cornerback Rasul Douglas wanted TCU to have a taste of what the Horned Frogs did to the Mountaineers a year ago.Douglas had an interception to set up a touchdown and No. 12 West Virginia held TCU scoreless in the second half of a 34-10 win Saturday.It was the second straight blowout in the series after TCU won 40-10 last year in Fort Worth, Texas. Their first three games after joining the Big 12 in 2012 were decided on the final snap, including two that went to overtime.We owed them, Douglas said. No disrespect to them, but we owed them as a team.A retooled defense that has vastly improved over the past month is one reason why West Virginia (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) is off to its best start since winning its first seven games in 2006.I thought it was our most complete game, said West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen. It feels good to be 6-0. Its hard to win. So when you do, youve got to enjoy it a little bit.TCU (4-3, 2-2) had only five second-half possessions. Three ended in punts, Deante Gray fumbled away a kickoff and the final possession ended on downs.This one went the Mountaineers way from the start. West Virginia scored touchdowns in the games first six minutes after two TCU turnovers -- another fumbled kickoff by Gray and Douglas interception of Kenny Hill.West Virginias Skyler Howard threw four touchdowns passes, including tosses of 10, 22 and 11 yards to three different receivers to stake the Mountaineers to a 21-10 halftime lead. Helped by some impressive catches by his receivers, including KaRaun Whites diving 16-yard TD grab in the third quarter, Howard finished 16 of 23 passing for 231 yards.To have guys like that to bail you out, its great as a quarterback, Howard said. It makes your job a lot easier.West Virginia used scoring drives of 11 and 15 plays in the third quarter to eat up most of the clock.THE TAKEAWAYTCU: With a bye week to fix an offense that was lethargic in a close win at Kansas , not much worked for the Horned Frogs against West Virginia. Hill completed 18 of 31 passes for a season-low 148 yards. TCUs 300 total yards also were a season worst.TCU was saddled with its most lopsided loss since joining the conference, surpassing a 23-point setback to Texas in 2013.The bottom line is youre not going to win any ball games if you turn the ball over, said TCU coach Gary Patterson. And if you cant move the ball, you dont score.West Virginia: The Mountaineers defense, which has nine new starters this season, is fast becoming the staple of this team. In successive weeks the Mountaineers have held high-scoring Texas Tech and TCU to their lowest point totals of the season.Our kids, I tell you, I keep saying it every week. Theyre fun to coach, said West Virginia defensive coordinator Tony Gibson. They just get it. They come in and they work. These guys, they just find a way.POLL IMPLICATIONSWest Virginia could be poised to edge closer to its first Top 10 appearance since October 2012 when the AP poll comes out Sunday.SHELL GAMEWith Justin Crawford limited to one carry after sustaining a sprained ankle last week, Rushel Shell got the bulk of the work for West Virginia, finishing with 117 yards on 24 carries. It was his second-straight 100-yard effort after he had 70 yards combined in the two games before that.UP NEXTTCU hosts Texas Tech next Saturday.West Virginia plays at Oklahoma State.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cameron Jordan Jersey . -- The Sacramento Kings are set to become the first major professional sports franchise to accept Bitcoin virtual currency for ticket and merchandise purchases. Terron Armstead Jersey . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. http://www.authenticfootballshopsaints.com/Youth-Ken-Crawley-Elite-Jersey/ . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Even with Eli Manning toying with Philadelphias secondary for much of the game, the New York Giants barely held off the Eagles on Sunday.Manning threw for four touchdowns and New Yorks defense had two interceptions and three stops on fourth downs to beat Philadelphia 28-23 on Sunday.Philadelphia, the last few years, has had our number, said Manning, whose team had lost five of the last six to the Eagles. Weve played close games, but havent been able to win those close games. So to be able to pull it off today and get that win was nice.The Giants (5-3) won their third straight game, stopping the Eagles (4-4 after a 3-0 start) from the New York 17 after Manning was intercepted with less than two minutes to go.At the end of the game you have to go out there with confidence, confident that you are going to stop them, said cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. We have been playing well in games and when they get the ball down there and our backs are against the wall, we know we have to stand up.Two of Mannings touchdowns went to Odell Beckham Jr., with the others to Roger Lewis Jr. and Sterling Shepard .It was a game marked by big plays on offense -- six of more than 30 yards in the first half alone- and defense (four interceptions) and special teams (Jason Pierre-Pauls block of a field goal , Darren Sproles 66-yard punt return). Most of Sunday, it was a mismatch of Manning and his receiving corps against a sieve of an Eagles secondary. New York picked on every Philly defensive back, with the biggest Leodis McKelvin, no matter who he tried to cover.Less than two minutes in, Landon Collins made his third interception in the last two games; he had one pick as a rookie last year. Manning found Beckham on a slant after McKelvin failed to bump him at the line, and Beckham surged into the end zone for a 26-yard score.Andrew Adams, a rookie safety from UConn, had no interceptions in his previous five games. He sure knew what to do with the ball after hauling in Carson Wentzs high pass moments later, returning it 19 yards. Manning hit Lewis three plays later after McKelvin and Jaylen Watkins collided and it was 14-0.Mannings third TD throw came on a 1-yard jump ball to Beckham over McKelvin to make it 21-10.Wentz looked like a rookie from an FCS school in the first haalf, often appearing befuddled by coverages. Michael Thomas Jersey . Twice, the Eagles failed on short fourth downs while in field goal range.But he came out of halftime a different player , quickly guiding the Eagles 70 yards to Kenjon Barners 3-yard TD run.Manning, though, was just as precise and decisive on the ensuing drive, capped by his fourth TD throw, 32 yards to rookie Shepard. That gave Manning his first four-TD game since Game 14 last season.Wentz remained much sharper in the second half, leading the Eagles to two field goals by Caleb Sturgis. But Philly went 3 for 15 on third downs, 1 for 4 on fourth downs.MALCOLMS MESSAGE: Eagles players said veteran safety Malcolm Jenkins spoke up in the locker room after the game, saying they needed to learn how to finish games.Speaking for the defense, whose two interceptions in the fourth quarter resulted in no points, Jenkins said: Are you giving your team a chance to win defensively? There were a couple of plays here and there (early in the game) we feel weve got to have back. Those small mistakes -- there might be only one or two -- for our team to win we need to make those plays.ELIS COMING: Manning moved into ninth place in career yards passing with 46,428. Manning, in his 13th NFL season, threw for 257 yards against Philadelphia. He passed Vinny Testaverde, who had 46,233 yards through the air.ROOKIE FIRSTS: In addition to Adams first interception, Eagles WR Bryce Treggs made his first NFL reception, an 11-yarder on a field goal drive. It got even better for the undrafted rookie from Cal when his 58-yard reception set up Philadelphias first touchdown. Treggs was in the lineup because Josh Huff was released after being charged with possession of a handgun without a permit and having a small amount of marijuana during a traffic stop.INJURIESGiants WR Victor Cruz hurt an ankle in the first half, and LG Justin Pugh sprained his right knee in the second quarter. Neither returned. Eagles safety Terrence Brooks left with a hamstring issue.UP NEXT:Philadelphia hosts Atlanta next Sunday.New York hosts Cincinnati on Monday night, Nov. 14.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
