FRISCO, Texas -- Dan Kennedy earned his first shutout of the season helping Chivas USA to a scoreless draw with FC Dallas on Thursday night. Geoff Swaim Jersey . Chivas (3-10-4) got its second straight draw while extended its winless streak to 12 in the opener of a three-game road trip. "I think they are starting to play more as a team and less as individuals," Chivas coach Jose Luis Real said through a translator. Real took over at the end of May for Jose Luis Sanchez Sola. Although he is still searching for his first win as Chivas coachr, the team is showing improvement, The Goats tend to show up more against Dallas than against other opponents, and Thursday night was no different. Dallas has not defeated Chivas in six straight matches. "I dont know what it is," Real said. "I think its motivation. Obviously the players come in the game with the motivation (to take down a top team)." Dallas (8-3-7) is winless in its last five matches and sits two points behind Real Salt Lake atop the Western Conference. There were plenty of chances for both teams, though neither could take advantage. Chivas outshot Dallas 17-6, holding a 6-1 advantage on shots on goal. "I think were trying to get in the right path," Chivas midfielder Jorge Villafana said. "The thing is looking better each game. Last game we had the opportunity to get three points, we let ourselves tie it, and this time I think we did a good job coming here and getting a point in a difficult place (against) a good team." Dallas sent its first 10 shots off target, missing the goal by inches on several occasions. Chivas kept rifling shots that were blocked by Dallas defenders, including four shots in one sequence in the 54th minute. Jackson nearly put Dallas on the board in the 85th minute when he headed a cross just wide of the post. One minute later, Kennedy made a toe save on Blas Perezs header. Both teams squandered stoppage-time free-kick opportunities to saddle them with a point each. Dallas had three strong scoring opportunities in the opening 10 minutes of the game, including a strong showing on early set pieces. Defender Stephen Keel, making his first start for Dallas, just missed a header six minutes in on a corner, which would have been the 30-year-olds first career MLS goal. Four minutes later, Michels left-footed free kick from about 30 yards didnt quite curl back far enough, caroming off the far post. From there, Chivas backline tightened in the middle as the visitors starting pressing up and limiting the Dallas chances to ones created on the wings. "The beginning of the first half, we were playing really well and we kind of faded in the middle of the game," Dallas defender Matt Hedges said, "and we were giving the ball away, I think, too much and not keeping enough possession. It started to be kind of a track meet back and forth." Chivas found its footing in the final 15 minutes of the first half. Eric Avila, who played for Dallas from 2008-11, had a ground shot from about 25 yards stopped by a diving Raul Fernandez in the 30th minute. Avilas attempt triggered a string of shots to end the half, including Jose Correas about-face shot from six yards out that just went wide when he found the ball off a neat back heel from Walter Vilchez following a corner. Charles Haley Jersey . -- J.R. Sweezy was the one part of the Seattle Seahawks offensive line that had avoided injuries or having to change positions this season. Robert Newhouse Jersey . Villarreals victory in Valencia kept it in fourth place and in control of Spains last Champions League spot. Uche broke free in the area in the 10th minute and was brought down by goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who was shown a direct red card. http://www.thecowboysfansmall.com/c-77-cowboys-demarcus-ware-jersey.aspx . - Dominika Cibulkova erased three match points in the second set Wednesday and beat Agnieszka Radwanska 3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3 in the quarterfinals of the Sony Open.DENVER - Each of the dozen NFL teams still standing has reason to believe next month will bring a party and a parade.Every one of them also has a potentially costly flaw that could have them dejectedly clearing out their lockers instead.The game gets a little faster and certainly everythings on the line, Denver quarterback Peyton Manning said of the playoffs, where hes experienced plenty of pain — 12 losses — to go with lots of euphoria — 11 wins.The key this time of year is pretty simple, he said.I think the more experience you have, the different types of games youve been through, those things can certainly help you, Manning said. But it usually comes down to kind of who executes better.As the dandy dozen prepare for the playoffs, heres a look at the signature strength of each team along with their most worrisome weakness:AFC:1. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS:WEAKNESS: The O-line struggled early after LG Logan Mankins was traded to Tampa Bay. The unit settled down when rookie centre Bryan Stork took over in Week 4. With little depth, the Patriots need the O-linemen to stay healthy and protect the franchise, Tom Brady.STRENGTH: With apologies to Rob Gronkowski, the addition of cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner gets the nod here. They have greatly improved New Englands pass defence. The emergence of second-year linebacker Jamie Collins also has been a big plus.Hes turned into a leader and a linebacker who is able to control the whole defence, safety Devin McCourty said of Collins. Theres not much he cant do on the field.2. DENVER BRONCOS:WEAKNESS: Manning often looks rushed even when hes not. The O-line hasnt done him many favours and must step up its play for Manning to be able to find Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, who combined for 212 catches, 3,023 yards and 20 TDs this season.STRENGTH: Defensive newcomers Aqib Talib, DeMarcus Ware and T.J. Ward came up big. So did Von Miller, Chris Harris Jr., Rahim Moore and Derek Wolfe, who were sidelined a year ago. Add in Bradley Roby and Brandon Marshall and this unit atones for any offensive hiccups.Ill just ask the fans this: Do you want Peyton to throw 70 million touchdowns and break 80 million records or do you all want a parade downtown? running back C.J. Anderson said.3. PITTSBURGH STEELERS:WEAKNESS: Pittsburghs defence is no longer the menacing group it was during three Super Bowl trips from 2005-11. The Steelers were 18th in total defence and 27th against the pass. Ike Taylor and Troy Polamalu were hurt and Cortez Allen failed to develop into a shutdown CB.STRENGTH: Antonio Brown has become as big a part of the offence as Ben Roethlisberger. His 129 catches were the second-highest single season total in NFL history, and he led the league with 1,698 yards receiving to go with a team-record 13 TD catches.He needs no endorsement from me, coach Mike Tomlin said of Brown. He is who he is. I dont think any of us are surprised when he delivers for us time and again.4. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS:WEAKNESS: Over the last six weeks, the Colts have lost nine fumbles and thrown six interceptions. Thats a real concern for a team that had seven interceptions in two playoff games last year. After committing a league-low 66 penalties in 2013, Indy was called for 105.STRENGTH: Even with all the blunders and bruises, Andrew Luck has an uncanny knack for winning. The Chiefs saw his genius in the playoffs last year, when he rallied the Colts from a 28-point deficit. Lucks finishing touch means anything is possible this post-season.I dont think the kid ever feels any pressure, coach Chuck Pagano said. I think he performs best when his backs to the wall.5. CINCINNATI BENGALS:WEAKNESS: Andy Dalton is 0-3 in the playoffs and has played some of his worst games in the pressurized post-season. In those three games, two losses at Houston and one at home last year against San Diego, Dalton has one TD, six interceptions and a paltry passer rating of 56.2.STRENGTH: Rookie RB Jeremy Hill has provided a spark. The Bengals commitment to the run takes pressure of Dalton. Fourteen of his 17 passes went to a tight end or running back in a big win over the Broncos, a low-risk approach that goes hand-in-hand with handing it off.We just have a new attitude. The running game has really sparked kind of a feistiness, left tackle Andrew Whitworth said.6. BALTIMORE RAVENS:WEAKNESS: The Ravens have five cornerbacks on injured reserve, most notably Jimmy Smith, along with safety Terrence Brooks. If the Ravens dont get pressure from sack specialists Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs, the heat is on a backfieeld that ranked 24th against the pass. Emmitt Smith Jersey. STRENGTH: Justin Forsett ran for a career-high 1,266 yards. He gives Joe Flacco time to pick from Torrey Smith, Steve Smith and Owen Daniels. That formula enabled the Ravens to score 17 fourth-quarter points against Cleveland when Forsett had runs of 27 and 26 yards.To open those runs up in the fourth quarter, to finish the game, thats what you need to do, coach John Harbaugh said. Especially this time of year.NFC:1. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS:WEAKNESS: Seattles O-line remains shaky in pass protection. The front five are good at opening lanes for Marshawn Lynch, but too often Russell Wilson is asked to improvise out of sheer survival.STRENGTH: The key to the Seahawks stout defence is its ability to stuff the run, led by middle linebacker Bobby Wagner. Opponents become one-dimensional and end up having to deal with a standout secondary featuring Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.Right now were playing better than we have all of last year. Guys are putting their egos to the side, guys are buying in and playing for one another, defensive end Bruce Irvin said.2. GREEN BAY PACKERS:WEAKNESS: The Packers dont travel well. They were 4-4 on the road and 8-0 at Lambeau Field. If Seattle and Green Bay win in the divisional round, the Packers road to the Super Bowl would go through the Great Northwest, where they were thumped 36-16 in the opener.STRENGTH: A limping Aaron Rodgers is better than most healthy QBs. His notorious grit was especially impressive last weekend when he fought through a left calf injury to help the Packers beat Detroit. At home, Rodgers threw 36 TD passes without a single interception.If there was a word of a greater magnitude than respect, thats what I have for Aaron, defensive lineman Mike Daniels said.3. DALLAS COWBOYS:WEAKNESS: The Cowboys arent getting many difference-making plays from their cornerbacks. Orlando Scandrick picked off a pair of passes and high-priced veteran Brandon Carr went without an interception for the first time in his seven-year career.STRENGTH: Long reliant on Tony Romo, Dallas committed to the run. NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray set franchise records for carries (392) and yards (1,845) and three first-round picks on the O(asterisk)--line got Pro Bowl nods: Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin.This team is completely different than some of those teams in years past, Romo said. Were much better up front.4. CAROLINA PANTHERS:WEAKNESS: The O-line and secondary were big problems before Ron Rivera found the right mix. However, the Panthers are relying on so much youth at key positions. Seven rookies started the last two games, and that inexperience could prove costly in the playoffs.STRENGTH: Behind Luke Kuechly, the Panthers defence was dominant during a 4-0 December run. Cam Newton tends to play much better when his defence is making stops and hes not forced into making big plays. He has won both of his starts since his auto accident.Sometimes its good to be young and dumb, veteran safety Roman Harper said of the teams abundance of rookies.5. ARIZONA CARDINALS:WEAKNESS: Arizonas problems at quarterback may finally be too much. Carson Palmer was 6-0 before his season-ending knee injury. Effective backup Drew Stanton sprained his right knee and an infection slowed his recovery. That means Ryan Lindley gets the nod.STRENGTH: The defence was the backbone of the team for much of the year but it is coming off its two worst performances of the season. Todd Bowles loves the blitz and brings it from all sorts of angles, relying on man coverage from his secondary.We cant have those mistakes next week, because everything is on the line, cornerback Patrick Peterson said.6. DETROIT LIONS:WEAKNESS: Detroits O-line has been disappointing. Matthew Stafford was sacked 45 times. The Lions have a potentially dynamic passing game with receivers Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, but their blocking problems have held the team back.STRENGTH: The Lions held opponents to an NFL-low 69 yards rushing per game, forcing teams — even Chicago and Matt Forte on Thanksgiving — to abandon the run. Ndamukong Suh anchors the D-line and the Lions and their fans exhaled when his suspension was overturned.This time of year you have to be able to control the line of scrimmage, coach Jim Caldwell said.___AP Sports Writers Howard Ulman, Will Graves, Michael Marot, Joe Kay, Dave Ginsburg, Tim Booth, Genaro Armas, Schuyler Dixon, Steve Reed, Bob Baum and Noah Trister contributed.___AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
