    NASHVILLE, Tenn. Mickey Mantle Jersey . -- Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan has made no secret of his desire to be considered the NFLs best at his position, the kind of reputation built by playing well against the top pass rushers.Not only has Jack Conklin been one of the leagues most impressive rookies, hes already considered one of the leagues top right tackles.Lewan and Conklin, along with the rest of the Titans, have allowed just 18 sacks, fifth fewest in the NFL, after allowing Tennessee quarterbacks to be sacked a league-worst 54 times in 2015.Their protection of Marcus Mariota will be tested heavily Sunday when Von Miller and his NFL-high 13 + sacks and the defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos (8-4) visit looking to pad their league-leading 36 sack total.Theyre unbelievable pass rushers, and theyre great football players, not just pass rushers, Lewan said Wednesday. Having this opportunity is huge, and its awesome. I cant wait.Mariota missed four games as a rookie after being hurt in the pocket. Through the 12 games he played in 2015, he was sacked 38 times. This season only Oakland (12) and the Giants, Pittsburgh and Washington (all tied with 16) have allowed fewer sacks than Tennessee. The Titans also rank seventh allowing a sack per pass attempt on 4.7 percent of passes.The quarterback has noticed how much less he finds himself scrambling away from pass rushers.Those five guys up front have done an incredible job, Mariota said. As we go forward, we can always improve in certain areas. I can always get the ball out quicker, throw the ball away, but those guys up front have done a great job and have made my life a whole lot easier.Improving the offensive line had been at the top of Tennessees to-do list in recent years, and first-year general manager Jon Robinson made the key moves to set up this unit.Robinson signed veteran center Ben Jones away from Houston to anchor the middle, then traded back up to No. 8 overall to take Conklin out of Michigan State. Conklin has started every game at right tackle, helping bookend the line opposite Lewan.He doesnt look like a rookie, Miller said on a conference call. He doesnt look like a rookie for sure -- very athletic. He has all the abilities to be an elite tackle in the National Football League.The Titans have protected Mariota so well that theyve now kept him from being sacked at all in four of their last eight games. That has coincided with Mariota throwing at least two touchdown passes in each of those games, with Tennessee going 5-3 in that span.Broncos coach Gary Kubiak is very familiar with Jones, having coached the lineman in Houston. Kubiak also credits Mariotas improved play with helping the Titans quarterback avoid some sacks.Obviously, as coaches, you try to protect your quarterback as best you can, Kubiak said. At the same time, as quarterbacks play more and more, they can protect themselves, too. I think all those things go hand-in-hand, but you see how much more comfortable he is and, obviously, theyre very good up front.Conklin watched Miller earn MVP honors at Super Bowl 50 in February and now is preparing to face the linebacker who has posted double-digit sack totals in five of his first six seasons. Yes, Conklin says that feels a little weird. The rookie insists hes over being star struck this deep into the season.What we focus on is everyones just another player, Conklin said. If we stop focusing as much of who they are and just what we have to do on each play, it takes a little bit away from it.---For more NFL coverage: and Teresa M. Walker at Austin Romine Jersey . Inter president Erick Thohir says in a club statement on Wednesday that Vidic is "one of the worlds best defenders and his qualities, international pedigree, and charisma will be an asset. Don Mattingly Jersey . -- Playing time has been limited for Maxim Tissot this season, so the Montreal Impact defender made the most of his first scoring opportunity on Saturday. . Colin Wilson had two goals and an assist, and Mike Fisher scored a goal and helped set up two others in the Predators 6-4 victory over the Red Wings on Monday night.Graeme Souness was left in awe of Leicester City after their spirited 1-1 draw at Manchester United moved them to within two points of the Premier League title. Claudio Ranieris men travelled to Old Trafford on Sunday knowing victory would seal an unprecedented maiden top-flight crown, but they had to withstand an early onslaught from the hosts, who were looking to strengthen their bid for Champions League qualification.Anthony Martial established Uniteds dominance on eight minutes, stroking Antonio Valencias cross beyond Kasper Schmeichel, but - as they have done so often throughout their remarkable campaign - Leicester hauled themselves back into the game through captain Wes Morgan. The result means Leicester will be crowned champions if second-placed Tottenham fail to win at Chelsea on Monday Night Football, and Souness was left to praise a performance he felt typified the Foxes season.Its incredibly hard to be anything other than utterly complimentary about this team, Souness told Super Sunday. How many Leicester players at the end of last season were negotiating clauses in their contracts in case they qualified for the Champions League, or won the Premier League? None of them!Their bonus would have been for avoiding relegation. Its really hard not to be totally in awe of this team. Morgan admitted Leicester had to work very hard for a point It was a typical Leicester performance today. Phil Rizzuto Jersey. Theyve ended up with 30 percent possession yet, watching the game, it didnt feel like that.Theyve come to one of the worlds greatest football stadiums today and were not intimidated. They went a goal behind and showed real character and togetherness to get back into it. It’s really hard not to be totally in awe of this team. Somehow they come up with a way of getting a result. Graeme Souness on Leicester City United were fabulous for a good half an hour but after that, Leicester came back. The so-called smaller team fell behind to the bigger team but, to a man, none of them threw the towel in.You could see them grinding themselves back into the game and in the second half, they were the better team. That 90 minutes typifies what Leicesters season has been all about. When adversity comes, they deal with it. Somehow they come up with a way of getting a result.Watch Chelsea v Tottenham live on Monday Night Football, 7pm, Sky Sports 1 HD Also See: United make Leicester wait As it happened Souness: Fellaini wont escape ban Ranieri: I wont be watching Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 NFL Jerseys China China Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Online ' ' '
