Seahawks roll behind Wilson s 3 TDs; Raiders QB Carr injured

By Zac Boyer, Associated Press LONDON (AP) — Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaron Brown saw teammate David Moore go tumbling over the temporary video advertising boards. At no point was he concerned about his well-being. "Any time you catch a touchdown (pass), I don't think you're worried about what happens after," Brown said. Quarterback Russell Wilson threw touchdown passes to Brown, Moore and Tyler Lockett, and the Seahawks rolled to a 27-3 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday at Wembley Stadium. Chris Carson rushed for 59 yards and rookie Rashaad Penny gained an additional 43 for the Seahawks (3-3), who played to a vociferously supportive crowd — a London-record 84,922 were in attendance — despite the Raiders (1-5) being the designated home team. Oakland quarterback Derek Carr left the game with an apparent left arm injury with 8:52 remaining in the fourth quarter after the last of his six sacks. He did not have the chance to return because the Seahawks ran out the clock. Carr went 23 for 31 for 142 yards and was hit by Jarran Reed on third down and immediately grabbed his upper left arm as he sat up before being helped to the sideline for evaluation. Coach Jon Gruden said afterward that Carr, who would have been dropped twice more had the Seahawks not been penalized on those plays, was angling to return but backup AJ McCarron would have entered. "Just too much fire today," Gruden said. "Too much fire today around the quarterback." Wilson, who completed 17 of 23 attempts for 222 yards with an interception, connected with Brown for a 5-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter, a 19-yard touchdown pass to Moore in the second and a 10-yard touchdown pass to Lockett in the fourth. After picking up a low snap, Wilson faked a throw and stepped forward, then made a throw to Moore over Daryl Worley. Moore punctuated his touchdown, his third in the Seahawks' past two games, by accidentally crashing into the screens set up around the field. "I kind of saw it at the last second, but I didn't think it was that hard until I hit it," Moore said. Former Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, playing in his first game against his former team, was held to 45 yards on 13 carries as the Raiders unsuccessfully turned to Carr and their passing game to try to catch Seattle. Oakland even made it a point to try to establish Lynch early with three consecutive carries, but he gained 2 yards on a carry, 2 more yards on another and then lost 3 yards before a punt. "We ran three different types of runs and all three of them were rejected," Gruden said. "We wanted to get him in the game, we wanted to get him established. That was the beginning of the game, and after that, we were trying to make a first down and survive. It wasn't pretty." Matt McCrane, who missed a 48-yard field-goal attempt wide left in the second quarter, made one from 43 yards with 8:30 remaining as the Raiders avoided their first shutout since 2014 and the third at Wembley in the past four games. BALDWIN BACK Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin, held to one catch for 1 yard in the loss to the Los Angeles Rams last week, rebounded with team highs of six catches and 91 yards against the Raiders. Baldwin missed two games earlier this season after injuring the medial collateral ligament in his right knee in the season opener and insisted that the low output was not related to his injury. CLOSE TO HOME Sebastian Janikowski, who joined the Seahawks in the offseason after 17 seasons with the Raiders, made field goals of 44 and 26 yards. It was the second time Janikowski, who was born in Poland and moved to the United States as a teenager, played in London but the first time he converted a field goal attempt. INJURIES Seattle: CB Tre Flowers left the game with muscle cramps with 4:08 left in the third quarter. TE Nick Vannett (back) was inactive despite coach Pete Carroll saying on Friday he would play. Oakland: In addition to Carr, WR Amari Cooper (concussion) left the game with 13:40 remaining in the second quarter after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald. LG Joe Feliciano, starting for Kelechi Osemele (knee), left the game late in the second quarter with a rib injury and did not return, and WR Seth Roberts (concussion) left with 11 minutes remaining. UP NEXT Seattle: Travel to face the Detroit Lions on Oct. 28 after a bye week. Oakland: Will host the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 28, also after a bye......»»

Guiao comes back, Fonacier returns to form in NLEX win

The return of Yeng Guiao gave NLEX a shot in the arm and old reliable Larry Fonacier made sure the Road Warriors welcomed their head coach back in the best possible way. Guiao called the shots for the Road Warriors for the first time in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup after missing five games due to his coaching duties with the Philippine team in the Asian Games and Fiba World Cup Asian Qualifiers. "I guess we missed coach Yeng," said Fonacier. The rest of the Road Warriors could say the same for Fonacier, who delivered a throwback performance on Wednesday. The 36-year-old swingman caught fire from long range just like old times when he was still playing his best basketball as a member...Keep on reading: Guiao comes back, Fonacier returns to form in NLEX win.....»»

Without Ravena, Alas, Road Warriors fail to match KaTropa’s fire power

NLEX may just be one of the most unfortunate teams in the PBA Commissioner's Cup having to deal with the absence of its star backcourt in Kiefer Ravena and Kevin Alas. And that absence was felt in the Road Warriors' 117-106 loss to TNT Sunday at Mall of Asia Arena. NLEX head coach Yeng Guiao said they failed to match the firepower of the KaTropa, whose backcourt partnership of Jayson Castro and Terrence Romeo could easily exceed that of the Road Warriors' Alas and Ravena. "We really lack the firepower and when you play against a team with a lot of offensive firepower like TNT that's the time you really miss Kiefer and Kevin," said Guiao in Filipino. Guiao, despite his tea...Keep on reading: Without Ravena, Alas, Road Warriors fail to match KaTropa’s fire power.....»»

Ravena hopes Alas can play in do-or-die Game 6 for NLEX

ANTIPOLO --- Rookie Kiefer Ravena knows how big of a loss Kevin Alas was for NLEX in Game 5 of the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup semifinals against Magnolia. "That was big and it kind of messed up our rotation," Ravena said after his backcourt partner Alas suffered an apparent knee injury 40 seconds into the game on Sunday. Ravena even shared that Alas was the one who was encouraging the Road Warriors before the game to come together and start strong in an attempt to light a fire on the players. But Alas hurt his right knee and Ravena admitted that the absence of Alas took the air out of NLEX. "He was really motivating us before the game, reminding us to be sharp, and that happ...Keep on reading: Ravena hopes Alas can play in do-or-die Game 6 for NLEX.....»»

Victolero s challenge via text ignites Jalalon s competitive fire

Jio Jalalon wasn't exactly having a great semifinals against NLEX. He was averaging only 4.5 points per game entering Wednesday's Game 3, and he scored exactly zero points in the series opener. Despite his offensive struggles though, head coach Chito Victolero knows that his second-year point guard is one of the better ones in the PBA. And he made sure Jio knew about that. "Kagabi, ka-text ko yang si Jio," Victolero said. "Sabi ko na in order to establish himself sa PBA, he needs this series to get his confidence. Happy ako na nag-respond siya sa challenge ko," he added. Jalalon sure responded to his coach's challenge, scoring a game-high 25 points to hand Magnolia a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 series. Now he hopes to sustain his effort all the way to a Finals appearance for the Hotshots. "Dun tumaas yung tingin ko sa sarili ko," Jalalon said of Victolero's challenge. "Pasalamat ako kay coach Chito na binigyan niya ako ng tiwala. Nagagawa ko na rin yung talent ko dito sa semis, sana magtuluy-tuloy pa to," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
