    TORONTO -- Its two points in the standings but it means much more than that to Kevin Glenn and the Calgary Stampeders. Frostee Rucker Jersey . Glenn threw two first-half TD passes before leaving for precautionary reasons as injury-plagued Calgary beat the Toronto Argonauts 35-14 on Friday night in a rematch of last years Grey Cup game. The Stampeders (6-2) won despite missing veteran slotback Nik Lewis (fractured fibula), receiver Maurice Price (ankle), offensive lineman Dimitri Tsoumpas (concussion) and running back Jon Cornish (thigh contusion). "It shows a lot about our character and how well we prepare, how we believe in each other," Glenn said. "Your star running back and receiver go down and we still have faith and confidence in the guy whos going to step up and play next. "We all believe in each other, its really a good team atmosphere and I think that carries over on the field." Glenn, starting with incumbent Drew Tate (arm) out, suffered a head injury at 1:06 of the fourth quarter after being taken down by Toronto tackle Khalif Mitchell. Glenn left as per the CFLs concussion protocol but said afterwards he was OK. "I had a little headache but its gone and I feel fine," he said. "I remembered the play and everything that happened so it was more so just a precaution. "This stuff is serious so you have to be cautious when it happens." Third-stringer Bo Levi Mitchell took over and scored on an 11-yard run at 4:04 to put Calgary ahead 29-14, set up by Jonathan Hefneys 36-yard return of Chad Owens fumble. Glenn threw second-quarter TD passes to Marquay McDaniel and Tim Hawthorne to stake Calgary to a 21-14 half-time lead after Toronto (5-3) lost starter Ricky Ray. Ray suffered a shoulder injury at 8:41 of the first and was replaced by sophomore Zach Collaros after being hit by Charleston Hughes. Ray will be evaluated Saturday. "Its tough to see your starting quarterback go down but you dont have time to feel for Ricky," Argos coach Scott Milanovich said. "Thats the job of the backup quarterback. "Its never easy to come off the bench with no reps, especially on a short week. Their guy (Mitchell) had to do the same thing." Ray completed his first five passes before a Rogers Centre gathering of 21,157, including a 19-yard TD strike to Jason Barnes at 5:10 to open the scoring. Ray, who guided Toronto past Calgary 35-22 in the 100th Grey Cup game last November at Rogers Centre, capped an eight-play, 65-yard march set up by Cleyon Laings recovery of McDaniels fumble following a 29-yard reception on the games first offensive play. Ray returned to Torontos bench in the third and wasnt wearing a shoulder harness. Ray said afterwards he didnt think he suffered a shoulder separation and was held out for precautionary reasons. Ray came in having completed 64-of-73 passes (87.7 per cent) for 851 yards and eight touchdowns over his three previous starts. He was the CFLs offensive player of the week after finishing 30-of-35 passing for 413 yards and three TDs in a 36-33 home win over Edmonton on Sunday. Collaros led Toronto past B.C. 38-12 on July 30 when Ray had a knee injury but couldnt duplicate that feat Friday, finishing 16-of-26 passing for 221 yards and an interception, the Argos first this season. "We felt we couldve won regardless of losing Ricky," said Barnes, who had five catches for 106 yards and a TD. "We have a specific package with Zach and he knows what to do. "We just couldnt extend any long drives and they outplayed us." Calgary head coach/general manager John Hufnagel had nothing but praise for his club. "We held a very high-scoring offence to 14 points, thats pretty good," he said. "I know theyre missing their starting quarterback but so are we. "Im very proud of this football team just because of what theyve had to contend with up to this point. They had full confidence if they played their game that they had a chance to win the game and thats what they did." Glenn finished 14-of-20 passing for 228 yards and the two TDs. Jonathan Williams and Matt Walter combined for 138 yards rushing in place of Cornish, the 2012 CFL rushing leader whos second this year with 749 yards. Williams, a former practice roster player, had 82 yards on 18 carries while Walter added 56 yards on 10 carries. "It was like, Jon Cornish who? Glenn said with a chuckle. "They both took advantage of opportunities. "Jon being a guy who was on the practice roster and hadnt suited up since preseason coming in here and doing the kind of things he was doing, everyone on the team had confidence in him. Now the rest of the CFL, the rest of Canada has seen what he can do." Calgary earned its fifth straight win over an East Division team and beat Toronto for the first time in six regular-season meetings. Kicker Rene Paredes booted three field goals but had his CFL record-streak end at 39 straight when he missed from 22 yards in the fourth for a single. Rene also had three converts while the other points came on two safeties. Barnes and Curtis Steele had Torontos touchdowns. Noel Prefontaine added the converts. NOTES: Toronto honoured members of the 83 Grey Cup-winning team at halftime. The victory in 1983 ended Torontos 31-year Grey Cup drought . . . . Toronto linebacker Marcus Ball was a late scratch. Linebacker Major Culbert was promoted from the practice roster to take Balls spot . . Hufnagel is the leagues longest tenured head coach, joining the Stampeders prior to the 08 season . . . Ray made his 169th career start while Glenn started his 145th career contest. Pat Tillman Jersey .com) - Marc Gasol and the Grizzlies withstood 18 Dallas 3-pointers, as Memphis took control in the third quarter and fended off a Mavericks rally en route to a 114-105 win in a Southwest Division showdown. Rodney Gunter Jersey . The turf is scheduled to give way to actual grass that is bright green, so we dont have to complain any more—we just have to wait a few years. Instead, do feel free to complain if the roof is closed for any reason other than to allow a game to be played.DETROIT - Bills kicker Dan Carpenter responded to an alleged laser pointer shining from the stands in Detroit with laser-point accuracy.After banking a 50-yard attempt off the left upright in the third quarter, Carpenter split the goal posts from 58 yards with 4 seconds left for a 17-14 come-from-behind victory over the Lions on Sunday.I hit it really good. It was one of those things I really like to not leave opportunities like that short, said Carpenter. I hit the ball really well, a lot better than I did on the 50-yarder.And this time, there wasnt a laser shining in holder Colton Schmidts face, as apparently happened on the earlier miss.The Bills filed a complaint with NFL security officials after both Schmidt and quarterback Kyle Orton said that someone in the stands was shining a laser pointer at them.Without going into detail, coach Doug Marrone said the issue was resolved before the game ended. In fact, Marrone said, the laser was less of a distraction than it was a motivator.We felt that Dan could do it, Marrone said. At that point, with the adrenaline and everything, he was fired up.NFL spokesman Michael Signora said the league was waiting for its security representative in Detroit to file a game report. The Lions said in a statement that they were aware of the reports and contacted NFL security regarding the issue.The Bills (3-2) snapped a two-game skid in Ortons debut as Buffalos starter after EJ Manuel was benched this week. And their defence had six sacks in delivering co-ordinator Jim Schwartz a win in his return to Detroit after being fired as Lions head coach last season.The Lions were undone by placekicking. Alex Henery missed all three field goals attempts, including a 50-yarder that sailed wide left with 21 seconds remaining.Coach Jim Caldwell was already hinting of being ready to make another switch at kicker two weeks after Henery was signed to replace rookie Nate Freese.Its a performance-based league, plain and simple, and you have to perform, Caldwell said. Anyone that doesnt, we take a look and see if we can improve that one way or another.The Lions (3-2) squandered a 14-0 lead, dropped to 2-1 at home and also lost several key regulars to injury.Receiver Calvin Johnson did not return after aggravating a right ankle injury inn the first minute of the third quarter. Corey Peters Jersey. Starting running back Reggie Bush didnt finish the game after also hurting his ankle.Johnson was hurt when he reached down to make a 7-yard catch and was immediately hit low by cornerback Leodis McKelvin. Johnson clutched his right ankle and was briefly treated on the field. He then got up and slowly walked off the field.Caldwell called the hit as a pretty good whack, but said it was too early to determine the severity of the injury.Golden Tate picked up the slack with seven catches for 134 yards and a 9-yard touchdown catch. The Lions defence assisted the offence, with cornerback Rashean Mathis returning an Orton interception 41 yards for a score.Quarterback Matthew Stafford went 18 of 31 for 221 yards with a touchdown and interception.Orton bounced back from a slow start and the interception.It wasnt the first and it wont be my last, said the 10-year journeyman who improved his career record to 36-35, including a perfect 5-0 against Detroit. Youve got to keep that trigger, and put a little bit more pressure on yourself to make the plays next time.He finished 30 of 43 for 308 yards with a 2-yard touchdown to Chris Gragg. And he set up the decisive score by hitting rookie Sammy Watkins over the middle for a 20-yard gain. The ball was thrown behind Watkins, but he reached back with his right hand, tipping the ball forward and making the grab.Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus had five tackles and a career-best three sacks. He had several reasons to be motivated. He wanted to step up with fellow starter and mentor Kyle Williams sidelined by a knee injury. And then he wanted to win for Schwartz.It really meant more to him than just a game, said Dareus. We all took it to ourselves to go out and do the best we could for Schwartz and for the team, and just pull it out.NOTES: Bills RB Fred Jackson followed Graggs touchdown with a rush for the 2-point conversion that tied the game with 9:23 left. ... Orton won a game for the eighth time when tied or trailing in the fourth quarter or in overtime. ... The Lions have allowed 16 sacks in the past four games. ... Detroits kickers have hit just 4 of 12 field-goal attempts.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL(backslash) 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 ' ' '
