    Timbers are in the playoffs.The Timbers set up the win-and-in scenario for the
    regular-season finale with a 1-0 victory Sunday over the Colorado Rapids.
    Fanendo Adi scored on a penalty kick in the 35th minute.The reality is, it comes
    down to one game for us now to extend our season, Timbers captain Jack Jewsbury
    said. Its not the sixth game of the season on the road where its hard to see the
    end line. Its do or die. It was the fifth straight win at home for the defending
    MLS Cup champions and pulled them pulled even in points with Sporting Kansas
    City for the sixth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Timbers
    were a point back of fifth-place Seattle.Colorado (15-6-12) dropped to second in
    the conference standings behind Dallas while vying for the Supporters Shield for
    the team with the best regular-season record.The Timbers (12-13-8) have been
    winless on the road this season, which has hurt their playoff chances. But the
    result Sunday keeps them in the playoff race heading into the final game of the
    regular season next Sunday against the Whitecaps in Vancouver.I dont think
    anybodys worried about the road, even though, yeah, maybe we should be, Timbers
    coach Caleb Porter said. But I think in some ways the group still has a lot of
    confidence going on the road. Its more frustration, like, `how did we not win on
    the road? type of thing.The Timbers have lost starters Liam Ridgewell and Diego
    Chara for the match against the Whitecaps because of yellow card
    accumulation.The Rapids wrap up the regular season at home next Sunday against
    the Houston Dynamo.The mentality has to be right and were at home, in front of
    the home crowd, after a week of rest, Rapids coach Pablo Mastroeni said about
    the final with the Shield on the line. Just looking forward to a really
    spirited, really positive, really electric performance in that last game to
    hopefully put us in a position to win the Shield.Adis penalty kick was the
    result of a foul in the box on Vytautas Andriuskevicius. Three minutes later,
    Andriuskevicius drew another penalty but Rapids goalkeeper Tim Howard stopped
    the shot and Adi missed a chance on the rebound.Jewsbury, who is retiring
    following the season, was captain for his 156th game with the Timbers, tied for
    fourth on the teams career list. He was honored before his final home game, and
    the sellout crowd at Providence Park chanted Captain Jack!I want to thank each
    and every one of you for what you bring to this. Look at this atmosphere we get
    to play in front of every single game. Its amazing, he told the fans.After the
    game he went up in the stands to the Timbers Army supporters group to shake
    hands and sign autographs.Colorado was coming off a 2-1 victory over San Jose on
    Thursday night, snapping a 14-game winless streak over the Earthquakes. Kevin
    Doyle scored both goals in the Rapids third straight victory.The Timbers fell
    1-0 to the Rapids on Oct. 1 in Colorado.

    . However, he did make them miss him a little less. Cundiff,
    who had the unenviable job of replacing Dawson last season, agreed Thursday to a
    one-year, $1. Standing, kneeling or gesturing in support of Colin Kaepernicks
    national anthem protests has come at a cost for the dozen NFL players who have
    joined the cause against social injustices. Theyve faced vitriolic, sometimes
    racist reactions, forfeited some of their fan base, and at least one has lost
    endorsements.None is deterred by the backlash.No, its worth it, said Broncos
    linebacker Brandon Marshall, insisting that while hes disheartened by
    evaporating endorsements , Twitter trolls and the burning of a T-shirt in front
    of team headquarters this week, hes also undaunted.Its an evil world. Its a
    hateful world. Im not here to spread hate. Im not here to respond to the hate.
    Im here to spread love and positivity, Marshall said. Im a likable guy. I was
    once a fan favorite for a reason. Its cool, because people can call me n-word or
    cuss at me or say they wish I would break my neck all they want. Theres no
    backlash from me. Hate cant drive out hate. Only love can drive out
    hate.Detractors accuse protesting players of being unpatriotic or disrespecting
    the American flag. Marshall said hes also gotten lots of love from military
    veterans saying they fought for his right to peacefully protest as much as they
    did for those who stand and salute the Stars and Stripes.Marshall played at
    Nevada with Kaepernick , who began this movement last month by refusing to stand
    for the anthem during San Franciscos preseason games as a protest to racial
    oppression and police brutality in the United States.While Kaepernick saw sales
    of his jersey skyrocket, Marshall has faced financial repercussions for taking a
    knee during the national anthem on opening night.Marshall lost endorsements from
    the Air Academy Federal Credit Union and CenturyLink before music mogul Russell
    Simmons offered him a deal with Rushcard this week.So, I lost two endorsements
    and gained one, said Marshall, insisting it was better to have a single company
    standing behind him than two so quick to bail.When you really think about it, I
    didnt breach my contract. I didnt get arrested. I didnt do anything to defame
    the team or CenturyLink or Air Academy. I just exercised my first amendment
    rights, Marshall said. And they dropped me for that. Im proud of what I did
    because I didnt do anything wrong or hurtful by any stretch.Thats not what many
    critics are telling him and others who have joined Kaepernick.Seahawks
    cornerback Jeremy Lane and 49ers safety Eric Reid took a knee in support of
    Kaepernick in the preseason. Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters raised a
    black-gloved fist during the anthem Sunday in a scene reminiscent of U.S.
    sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City.Four
    Dolphins kneeled on the sideline with their hands on their hearts as The Star
    Spangled Banner played in Seattle: running back Arian Foster, safety Michael
    Thomas, wide receiver Kenny Stills and linebacker Jelani Jenkins.dddddddddddd.
    Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey, cornerback Jason McCourty and linebacker
    Wesley Woodyard raised their right fists after the national anthem
    ended.McCourtys brother, Devin, raised his fist along with Martellus Bennett
    before New Englands win in Arizona. Defensive end Robert Quinn and receiver
    Kenny Britt of the Rams also stood with their fists in the air Monday night.We
    waited until after the national anthem, explained Bennett, who was born on a
    Navy base in San Diego. I support the flag. I love America. I dont want to live
    anywhere else. But theres still some (messed up things) going on around the
    world.He said he wasnt worried about any consequences, financial or
    otherwise.What you can do for humanity and society is a lot bigger than a dollar
    you can get, Bennett said. It shows you how big it is that guys are willing to
    lose their endorsement to bring attention.Foster said the NFL players are the
    latest conduit for a message thats been out there for decades.Its more important
    to create a healthy dialogue, Foster said. Its easy for you to sit here and say
    `Shut up you stupid n------ instead of saying `Why do you feel like that? Its
    just so easy to hate. If you really proclaim to be a true American, freedom runs
    in our bloodline, right? Its supposed to. If somebodys telling you they dont
    feel like theyre free, why dont you listen to them?President Barack Obama has
    who said its a constitutional right to protest peacefully. But the players have
    been targeted on Twitter, insulted on Instagram, and ridiculed in
    public.Marshalls lost deals are the only known endorsements pulled over the
    protests.I dont have a lot of endorsements ... so Im not really worried about
    losing endorsements, said Tennessees McCourty, who has a deal along with his
    twin brother to promote Palmers Cocoa Butter.Marshall, who has pledged to donate
    to military charities, met with Denver police chief Robert White this week.
    Marshall accepted his invitation to participate in a shoot-or-dont-shoot
    training simulator and to go on a ride-along with police officers.Kneeling
    really was just to bring attention to the issues, an awareness factor -- a
    symbol -- so to speak, said Marshall. Just like the flag is a symbol.---AP NFL
