Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork. Duncan Keith Jersey .com) - Andrew Luck threw for 370 yards with five touchdowns, leading the Indianapolis Colts to a 49-27 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. It was supposed to be a matchup of the top two picks in the 2012 NFL Draft, but only Luck, the No. 1 selection, played. And he played very well. Luck completed 19-of-27 throws, two of which went for scores of more than 70 yards. Coby Fleener hauled in TD passes of 30 and 73 yards, while Donte Moncrief had scoring receptions of 48 and 79 yards. Robert Griffin III, the second overall choice in 2012, was benched earlier this week by Redskins coach Jay Gruden after three straight losing efforts. Colt McCoy, the winning quarterback in Washingtons last two victories, threw for 392 yards with three touchdowns, but the Redskins defense could not stop Luck. Roberto Luongo Team Canada Jersey .

They never thought it would take some blood, too. Kevin Love grabbed his 4,000th career rebound as part of a 19-point, 13-board effort to lead the Timberwolves over the Utah Jazz 112-97 on Tuesday night.RIO DE JANEIRO - Rio de Janeiro will not make good on its Olympic pledge of slashing the flow of raw sewage and garbage into the Guanabara Bay, where the 2016 games sailing and wind surfing competitions are to be held, the states top environmental official acknowledged Friday.Brazilian officials promise to cut the flow of pollutants into the bay by 80 per cent was a key part of the citys Olympic bid document and widely held up as among the most enduring legacies of the games. But with just 1 1/2 years to go before the showcase event, it has become increasingly clear that the target wouldnt be met.Rios new state Environment Secretary, Andre Correa, told reporters he couldnt provide an estimate of how much officials would actually succeed in cutting the flow of pollutants into the bay.Removing 80 per cent of the pollutants? Its not going to happen, its not going to happen, said Correa, who took office earlier this month.Still, he insisted that regardless of how far the cleanup progresses, the Olympic events wont be compromised.From the point of view of the Olympics, the point of view of water quality, what Ive said about the 80 per cent does not at all affect the courses for the sailing events, Correa said. Theres no big risk for sailors having troubles with illnesses and such things.Im not worried about the water quality in those areas, Im much more worried about floating garbage there, he said, adding that the so-called eco-barriers, nets that are strung along the mouth of rivers and meant to filter out garbage before it enters the bay, arent working well at all.Im going to change that, he promised.Sailors associations have expressed reservations about water quality as well as the garbage, both of which they say could harm sailors health. Olympic sailors have described the 2016 venue as a sewer, complaining of the stench at the events main veenue, the Gloria Marina, and describing having to dodge floating sofas, animal carcasses, and plastic trash bags that foul rudders in the open waters. Wayne Gretzky World Cup Jersey. A few sailors have said they got sick after falling into the bay.Correa said he wasnt sure whether Olympic authorities have been informed that the cleanup pledge will not be met.With most of the sewage in the greater Rio area flowing untreated into area rivers, its showcase beaches and the bay, Correa estimated a $3.8 billion investment would be needed to bring sewerage to the entire metropolitan area. With no timetable for the release of such sums, its unclear when that might happen, he said.The bay cleanup has been a sore spot in Rios fitful Olympic preparations almost since the city won the games back in 2009. Environmentalists have consistently warned that even with the clock ticking, nearly nothing has been done.Last year, The Associated Press obtained a letter to then-Sports Minister Aldo Rebelo, in which Rios states former environment secretary acknowledged in a best-case scenario that pollution flowing into the bay could be cut to over 50 per cent — well below the promised reduction of 80 per cent. Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes later said he was sorry that we did not use the games to get Guanabara Bay completely clean.Rios pledges to clean up the bay stretch back decades, with generous funding consistently reaping little in the way of concrete advances. While the decline of industry in Rio helped cut down on the levels of heavy metals in the bay, the galloping spread of informal, unplanned favela slums and other settlements has helped turn much of the once-crystalline bay into a virtual open sewer. An overpowering stench emanates from much of the bay, and beaches are off-limits for swimmers. Tons of household trash line the bays coastline and form islands of refuse. Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys 2018 Wholesale Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys Cheap ' ' '
