    Liverpool lost ground in the title race with a 2-2 draw at home to West Ham on Sunday. Wholesale England Jerseys .It all seemed to be going to plan for the Reds after five minutes when Adam Lallana finished smartly into the bottom corner after Sadio Mane had picked him out in the box, but two errors soon changed things at Anfield.The first came from under-fire keeper Loris Karius, who let a free kick from Dimitri Payet nestle into the bottom corner despite managing to get his fingers to it on 28 minutes.West Ham then took the lead after 39 minutes when the usually reliable Joel Matip, back from injury, let the ball skip past him with Michail Antonio lurking and poked the ball past Karius to give the Hammers a 2-1 lead at the break.Liverpool started the second half well and were level just three minutes after the restart when Divock Origi pounced on a mistake from Darren Randolph and tapped home into an empty net.The home side continued to apply pressure but the Hammers stood firm and for once this season looked impressive at the back. The Reds soon ran out of ideas and West Ham hung on for a deserved point.Its certainly a case of two points dropped for Liverpool, whose title credentials seem to be coming under question, but for West Ham there are definitely signs of improvement. Authentic Soccer England Jerseys . There was no hesitation from the 40th-ranked Pospisil, from Vernon, B.C., who admitted that he cut back on his training sessions over the last few days to conserve energy as the long ATP season finishes next week at the Paris Masters. Youth England Jerseys . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. ASHBURN, Va. -- Sometime before the Washington Redskins open the season, coach Jay Gruden may pull out the tape of a first-round playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers to remind players new and old of what went wrong.Its something we all learned from, were all sick about still, Gruden said. If youre a competitor and you lose at home in the playoffs, its something that youll never forget.The Redskins dont forget the end, and skeptics remember that the team went winless against winning teams last season but still captured the NFC East. Washington isnt any less likely to win the division this season, especially after Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romos injury, yet players still believe they have plenty to prove.Weve got to show that it wasnt just a one-hit wonder thing last year, linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said. Weve got to show that we can be a consistent winning franchise.Back-to-back playoff appearances would go a long way toward illustrating that the Redskins are at least building toward consistency. But remaining atop the division will be more of a challenge facing a first-place schedule than it was last year with a last-place schedule.Still, the Redskins may be better on paper than in 2015 with Kirk Cousins in his second year as starting quarterback, many of the same receivers to throw to and a defense bolstered by the signing of All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman. Continuity has replaced distractions and strong drafts have stockpiled usable talent.The job that the front office has done will continually add depth to this team and continually add playmakers and cornerstones to this team, four-time Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams said. The confidence just comes along with it. We know were a talented bunch, but at the same time we know that you cant win a game on paper. Our plan is to go out and prove it on Sundays.Five Sundays -- and Thanksgiving -- against the Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants could make the difference. Norman signed a $75 million, five-year deal to face the likes of Dez Bryant and Odell Beckham Jr., after Washington ranked 25th in the NFL in pass defense last season.Cornerback-turned-safety DeAngelo Hall called this secondary the best group Ive ever been around, counting the Oakland Raiders 2008 group that featured Hall, Nnamdi Asomugha, Gibril Wilson, Stanford Routt and Chris Johnson. Cousins throwing targets of tight end Jordan Reed and receivers DeSean Jackson and Pierre Gaarcon are back, too. England Jerseys From China. And theres certainly no shortage of motivation for Jackson and Garcon, each in the final year of his contract. Garcon was with the Indianapolis Colts when they were a perennial playoff team and went to a Super Bowl, so he knows it takes more than hunger and desire to win consistently and prove doubters wrong.Were putting the pieces together to head in that direction, but weve got a lot of things to work on, Garcon said. Indy wasnt Indy all in one year. It takes time, just like New England takes time. ... You just have to keep the pieces together and keep them working.Here are five things to watch for with the Redskins this season:TOUGH SKEDDING: After opening at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night, the Redskins still have to visit the reigning NFC West-champion Arizona Cardinals and AFC North-champion Cincinnati Bengals and host the NFC-champion Carolina Panthers and NFC North-champion Minnesota Vikings. Six games against playoff teams, including a rematch against Green Bay, will test Washington all season.CHIP ON COUSINS SHOULDER: How does a quarterback who threw for 4,166 yards and 29 touchdowns with a league-best completion percentage of 69.8 get to feel underappreciated? When he doesnt have a long-term deal -- and Cousins will make $19.95 million on the franchise tag while trying to prove he deserves a major commitment.RUNNING OF THE JONES: With Alfred Morris in Dallas, Matt Jones will be relied on as the No. 1 running back, though undrafted rookie Robert Kelley could push for an increased workload after an impressive training camp. Jones missed much of the preseason with a shoulder injury that bears watching.RUSH HOUR: Linebacker Junior Galette will miss another season after tearing his other Achilles tendon, so its on Kerrigan, defensive end Chris Baker and others to improve the pass rush that was middle of the pack last year. Normans presence cant hurt in that department if hes as good as advertised.NORMAN THE TARGET: Normans performance will be watched closely because of his inflammatory offseason comments, his contract and huge expectations. No. 2 cornerback Bashaud Breeland may be just as good and has a chance to show it if quarterbacks avoid Norman at all costs.---AP NFL website: and 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 ' ' '
