    DENVER -- Broncos rookie Paxton Lynch will make his first NFL start Sunday when Denver hosts the Atlanta Falcons, a person with knowledge of coach Gary Kubiaks decision told The Associated Press on Saturday.The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team didnt make the choice public, said Trevor Siemians sprained left shoulder isnt 100 percent and the hope is that the extra time will allow Siemian to start Thursday night in San Diego.Siemian sprained his AC joint in his non-throwing shoulder just before halftime of Denvers 27-7 win at Tampa Bay last weekend and Lynch completed 14 of 24 passes for 170 yards and a TD in relief.Kubiak reiterated Monday that Siemian was still his starter but would only play this weekend if his health allowed. On Friday, Kubiak said the short turnaround before the Chargers game would have no bearing on who he decides to start against Atlanta.The Falcons (3-1) bring the NFLs top-rated offense but the leagues 30th-ranked defense into Denver on Sunday, where the Broncos (4-0) are seeking their 10th consecutive victory.Lynch got all the snaps with the starters with Siemian sitting out Wednesdays practice, and he continued to get the bulk of the reps even as Siemian returned Thursday and gradually increased his workload.Unlike last year, when the Broncos had to make major changes in their game plan depending on whether Peyton Manning or Brock Osweiler was starting, the coaches only have to thin the playbook a little bit with Lynch, the 26th overall pick out of Memphis in the April draft.It definitely feels good knowing that Ive played in a game if I were to start or play in this game, Lynch said Wednesday. It feels good to get some game reps under your belt so youre not just thrown out there.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton New Balance Günstig Kaufen .

Oaklands loss to Seattle clinched the ALs best record for the Red Sox with one day to spare in the regular season. "I think everybody was kind of watching," catcher David Ross said. "Demp (Ryan Dempster) came out before he went to the bullpen and was just yelling that they lost.We caught up with members of the Sky Sports golf team and other pundits ahead of the Masters and got their tips for the first major of the season. Two-time winner Bubba Watson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day are among the leading fancies but defending champion Jordan Spieth doesnt get a vote from the pundits.Heres who they think will be challenging for the famous Green Jacket come Sunday night.Colin MontgomerieAdam Scott is confident coming off back-to back wins last month. I truly believe his putting is better with the short putter. Adam Scott won back-to-back titles on the PGA Tour earlier this year A recent winner of the Valspar and back in good form, Im going for Charl Schwartzel. The Masters is 75% about putting, and Charl is as good a putter as you can get and hes a previous winner.Paul McGinleyAlthough hoping for a European win my favourite is Bubba Watson. He has won twice there in the past, the course suits his strength of shot-making and left handers seem to win there more often than any other venue in the world. His recent form has been excellent and is a player who will rise to the big occasion and the pressures of the back nine on Sunday.My outside bet is Patrick Reed. He has shown a lot of good form so far this year without it all coming together in a win yet. He is a man for the big occasion as well as a tremendous competitor. His natural ball flight of right to left is suited to Augusta.Rob LeeBubba Watson is my favourite is a two-time winner and has already won this year at Riviera. Bubba Watson is already a two-time champion at Augusta Nobody in the history of the game has been more suited to a venue than Bubba and Augusta. 325 yd wipe fades give him an enormous advantage. He struggles on slow greens but is fine when he just has to tickle it. My outsider is Patrick Reed, a guy who doesnt struggle to draw the ball and is right up there with the best pitchers in the world and has no shortage of self confidence. He has a complete golf game.Nick DoughertyRory McIlroy maybe still looking for a win this year but his game has been trending in the right direction in recent weeks. Dougherty expects McIlroy to impress and challenge for a fifth major title He has had chances to win in his last three starts with one off day costing him each time. His recent fourth place at the WGC Match Play, and his hunger to get back to the top of the world rankings, will give him the edge to string four good rounds together and win the major that will give him the career grand slam on a course his game was built for.Rafa Cabrera-Bello is my other pick. He started the year ranked 114 in the world and now sits at 36, he has been in blistering form. Fresh off the back of a third place at the WGC which earned him his spot at Augusta his confidence is sky high. He hits the ball a long way and his yardage control with his iron play is second to none which is essential to do well at Augusta. It is his first visit to Augusta and experience counts for a lot around this course but on confidence and quality of form alone, the Spaniard has a great chance at this years Masters. Cabrera-Bello has been on an impressive run of form David HowellMy favourite has to be Jason Day, coming off another huge win, back to No 1 in the world and has played well at the Masters over the last few years.dddddddddddd No one comes in with more confidence and there just are no question marks about any aspect of his golf right now. For me he is the clear favourite with our boy Rory nestled in right behind.Charl Schwartzel is my outsider, if you can call a former champion an outsider? Charl has won a couple of times in the last few months but not in the biggest of events, but I liked what I read from him early in the year when he said he had been working hard and was hitting it as well as he ever had. If thats true then he is a match for anyone, and a great each way bet.Sky Sports football pundit Jamie Redknapp Redknapp has been a passionate golfer since his retirement from football Bubba Watson is my pick. He won it the year before last and hes in good form and hes about 14/1, which is a great bet, each way.The other player I like, hes a bit more of an outsider, I love watching this guy play, is Louis Oosthuizen, again each way.Soccer Saturday pundit Matt Le Tissier Im backing fellow Hampshire lad Justin Rose as he always seems to set himself up to produce in the majors. Rory McIlroy is my other tip, who showed signs in the WGC Match Play that he was coming back to some sort of form with a top-four finish.Cricket legend and Sky Sports pundit Sir Ian Botham Sir Ian Botham in action Danny Willett is my pick. Hell be buzzing after the birth of his first child and is in great form after his victory in Dubai in February.Super Sunday and Monday Night football host Ed ChamberlinThe medias focus will firmly be on the big three - Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy - which could play into the hands of Adam Scott and he looks a great bet at 11/1.Ill also be having my annual each-way stab on Matt Kuchar at 66/1.
