FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Patriots have been pretty fortunate in regards to how their schedule has played out this season.The final four games of the regular season could prove to be their toughest yet, though they may face one or more of them with yet another key player sidelined.New England receiver and Danny Amendola left Sundays 26-10 win over the Rams in the third quarter with an ankle injury, and was later spotted in the tunnel postgame walking on crutches.Should he miss any playing time, it would be the latest blow to a team thats already lost tight end Rob Gronkowski to season-ending back surgery last week. It also creates a hole on special teams, where Amendola also serves as the primary punt returner.Any time you lose a guy like Danny whos another big piece of this team, its terrible, receiver Julian Edelman said. Hes a good leader on this team. He comes in and he makes plays. He catches first downs like its nothing. He makes big plays in the special-teams game. So its gonna be tough.The Patriots will face three teams that currently have winning records over the next four weeks, beginning with a Monday night matchup with the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens and their always stingy defense.The Ravens had no problem dispatching Miami, currently second to New England in the AFC East, in a 38-6 win on Sunday. The victory snapped the Dolphins six-game win streak.Obviously, theyre a good team, Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount said. Right now, weve got to make sure we stay on our Ps and Qs, and cross our Xs and just continue to do what weve got to do to make sure that we continue to win these games.The Rams return home with even more problems to work through on offense after managing just 162 yards of offense.They did not cross midfield in the first half and didnt get inside the Patriots 25 until a 66-yard pass from rookie Jared Goff to Kenny Britt just after the two-minute warning to set up their lone touchdown.The elephant in room is the offense. I get it. Were working hard on it, coach Jeff Fisher said.GOFFS GAFFESFisher says not to blame Goff for the teams offensive struggles. The bigger problem was dropped throws and pass protection.When you hit someone in the chest with the football, youve got to hang on it, even though there is contact involved, Fisher said. He extended plays with his legs; he moved around. ... Jared Goff wasnt the reason we lost this football game today.Goff completed 14 of 32 passes for 161 yards -- 66 of them on a fourth-down throw to Kenny Britt to set up the Rams only touchdown with just under 2 minutes left. He also had two interceptions, one on a tipped ball and the other when his arm was hit while he was throwing.We tip the ball and they catch it and then they tip a ball and they catch it. You know, thats the difference in the ballgame really, Fisher said.TURNING A CORNER: The Patriots defense may be coming together at the right time. After failing to force a turnover for 44 straight possessions, New Englands defense has four over the past two games.Sometimes you have droughts and lulls, and theres a lot of things that you need: good breaks, defensive end Chris Long said. People outside the locker room may be panicking when we dont get them, but not us. CLOSING IN ON 1,000: Blount rushed 18 times for 88 yards and a touchdown Sunday, leaving him just 43 yards shy of posting his first 1,000-yard season since 2010, when he rushed for 1,007 as a rookie.Blount was placed on injured reserve last December with a hip injury, but said he isnt thinking about that even with a bruising running style that makes him more vulnerable to hits.You cant worry about injuries. You cant worry about last year, he said. Youve just got to worry about what you can control. Injuries -- you cant really control. Youve just got to worry about what you can control.BOOMING KICKSRams punter Johnny Hekker didnt let it go to his head after usually tight-lipped Patriots coach Bill Belichick called him a tremendous weapon, dangerous and as good a player as Ive ever seen at that position.It was cool and a little flattering hearing that from a long-time ball coach, Hekker said Sunday. I would love to have him raving about some other players on our team, because we have guys that are worthy of that kind of stuff. But it is a difficult year for us.Hekker punted eight times for a net average of 52.9 yards on Sunday, including a 76-yarder in the fourth quarter than helped pin the Patriots at their own 5-yard line.Belichicks comments made it all the way to Hekkers parents.It definitely gave them a proud moment, he said. They were able to send them to all of their buddies. They were all pretty excited about it.---AP Sports Writer Jimmy Golen contributed to this report.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL [url=http://www.customastrosjersey.com/custom-collin-mchugh-jersey-large-976y.html]Collin McHugh Jersey[/url] .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team.

Rio 2016 is officially Great Britains best overseas Olympics after they surpassed the Beijing tally of 47 medals with five days of action still to go.The record was sealed when Jason Kenny kept his cool to win a stunning sixth Olympic gold and third of the Rio Games with victory in the Keirin on Tuesday night.After Laura Trott won omnium gold for her fourth Olympic title -- making her Britains most successful female Olympian --?Becky James took silver and Katy Marchant bronze as Kristina Vogel of Germany won the sprint.Kenny was in the final medal race on the track and survived a scare when the race was paused as officials studied footage to determine if had had illegally overtaken the motorised Derny bike before it had left the track.The restart was also paused -- with all six riders again starting -- and at the third time of asking no-one could live with Kennys blistering pace.The 28-year-old from Bolton emulated Sir Chris Hoys 2008 achievement of winning three titles at one Olympics to move level with the Scot as the Briton with the most Games golds.?Britain finished with six cycling golds, four silvers, and one bronze on the track in Rio, while Chris Froome also claimed bronze in the road cycling time trial.Kennys gold was Britains 19th of the Rio Olympics -- equalling the gold haul from Beijing -- and the 49th British medal overall. The 48th medal, won by boxer Josh Buatsi, had minutes earlier taken Team GB past the previous best at an away Games.Jack Laugher then added a 50th medal for Team GB with a silver in the mens 3m springboard diving. It was his second of the Rio Games, having won?Britains first Olympic diving gold with Chris Mears in the synchronised 3m springboard.Earlier,?Giles Scott?claimed Olympic sailing gold to continue Britains domination of the Finn class.Started by Iain Percys Sydney 2000 triumph and continued in the next three Games by Sir Ben Ainslie, Scott ensured his country would take home a fifth successive Olympic gold in the class with a race to spare.The four-time world champion merely needed to complete the final race to top the podium, finishing second in a medal race that doubled up as a lap of honour.It has been a huge luxury -- theres not many times you can say you have won an Olympic Games before the medal race, Scott said, having become the second British sailing medallist following Nick Dempseys silver in the mens RS:X.ddddddddddddWe knew coming here to Rio that the racing wasnt going to be easy. Regardless of form, it was always going to be a hard week and it certainly was that. I had a particularly shaky start. Ive managed to pull through some good consistency and, yeah, to win it the way I have, I couldnt ask for any other way.There is set to be more sailing success on Wednesday with?Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark?on the brink of winning womens 470 gold.After taking silver at London 2012, they are all but assured of Britains second sailing gold of the Games. Forced to race on their reserve day due to Mondays changeable conditions, Mills and Clark secured two third places either side of a second to build up a 20-point cushion ahead of the medal race.In the womens floor gymnastics, Britains Amy Tinkler added another bronze medal for Britain.She told BBC Radio Five Live: It has been incredible -- I cant believe it. Im in total shock. I dont really know what to say.I wasnt thinking about winning a medal. My coaches said I had nothing to lose and just to go out and enjoy it. I could hear a lot of cheers from the crowd and that helped me a lot.Max Whitlock and Louis Smith have inspired me so much over the years, so to have a medal like them is incredible.Nile Wilson left British gymnastics in seventh heaven after adding to their extraordinary medals haul at the Rio Olympic Games. The 20-year-old grabbed bronze in the mens horizontal bar final less than an hour after Tinklers bronze.Light heavyweight Buatsi?won Team GBs first boxing medal of the games. He lost on points to Kazakhstan fighter Niyazymbetov in the semifinal, meaning he leaves Rio with a bronze medal round his neck.Joe Joyce secured Britain second mens boxing medal straight after Buatsi by demolishing Uzbekistans Olympic flagbearer Bakhodir Jalolov in three rounds. His win means he progresses to the semifinal where hes guaranteed bronze with the possibility of more with just one more win.? ' ' '
