    scenarios, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was asked if there was anything
    he learned about his team.Oh yeah, he said after reviewing video of the game. I
    think were a very good football team. Im very confident of that. ... Mentally
    our football team is very, very resilient. Its a long journey to the end.And was
    Sunday nights 6-6 tie with the Seattle Seahawks one of the more bizarre games
    hes experienced?It was a different one for sure, Arians said at his Monday news
    conference. Ive only been doing it for about 40-some years, but thats in the top
    five.Chandler Catanzaros missed 24-yard field goal try in overtime was only the
    last of a series of missed opportunities.A blocked punt set up the only Seattle
    score of regulation. The Cardinals failed on a fourth-and-one try at the
    Seahawks 19-yard line, time ran out before the Cardinals could get off a field
    goal try in the final seconds of the first half, and David Johnson came within
    inches of scoring what would have been the game-winning touchdown in OT.Michael
    Floyd dropped a pass deep in Seattle territory.And thats not to mention Bobby
    Wagners amazing block of Catanzaros 39-yard field goal try.I dont know how many
    plays we had, Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said after the game. It felt
    like 100, but were a tired football team right now. ... Weve got to bounce back.
    Weve got a big game next week.Actually, Arizona ran 90 plays in the game, the
    second-most in franchise history. The Cardinals ran 94 plays against Washington
    in 1994.Johnson touched the ball on 41 of those plays, 33 as a ball carrier and
    eight as a receiver. The second-year running back had 171 yards from scrimmage
    -- 113 rushing, 58 receiving. He leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage with
    1,004.The Cardinals had the ball a whopping 46 minutes, 21 seconds, the
    second-most in NFL history. The New York Jets had the ball for 47:08 against
    Cleveland in 2010.Still, Arizona managed just two field goals.Arians praised the
    Cardinals defense.One of the best defensive performances Ive seen since Ive been
    here, he said.Until the overtime, the only time the Seahawks were in Arizona
    territory was after the blocked punt.The Cardinals havent allowed a touchdown in
    the last two games.Arizona sits at 3-3-1 heading to Carolina and a stadium
    filled with bad memories. The Cardinals lost playoff games their last two trips
    there, most recently a blowout defeat in last seasons NFC championship game.And
    this wasnt the only Sunday night missed field goal that has plagued the
    Cardinals.A bad snap helped lead to Catanzaros missed field goal that would have
    beaten New England in the season opener.Arians said he still fully supports
    Catanzaro.The kicker just needs to kick it through the two poles and wed be 5-2,
    he saidGame notes The Cardinals will be without wide receiver Jaron Brown for
    the rest of the season. He tore an ACL against the Seahawks and is out for the
    season. Browns absence will especially be missed on special teams. ... Arians is
    optimistic that wide receiver John Brown will be back after sitting out Sunday
    nights game due to what the team called sickle cell traits that caused leg pain.
    ... The coach said outside linebacker Alex Okafor will miss the Carolina game
    with a strained calf.---AP NFL website: and

    . But when it comes to determining if Raymond will
    find a place on the Leafs roster when training camp concludes in a week, well,
    that decision will ultimately fall to the head coach. RIO DE JANEIRO -- The
    routine wasnt even complete when Uladzislau Hancharou started celebrating.His
    body still a couple stories off the ground during the mens Olympic trampoline
    final on Saturday, the 20-year-old from Belarus pumped his fist as he floated
    back to earth.I think I know I did quite well, Hancharou said. At the end I felt
    very good about it. It was an explosion of feelings.Hancharou received another
    jolt moments later when his score of 61.745 posted to put him in the lead with
    just reigning world champion Gao Lei of China remaing. Gaos set -- the most
    technically ambitious of the meet and one that included six triple-twisting
    jumps -- lacked Hancharous crispness, something Gao acknowledged when he shook
    his head as he finished.I was just trying to use the routine that had the
    highest difficulties, and my goal of course was to win the gold, Gao said.It
    didnt happen. Gao settled for bronze behind Hancharou and defending Olympic
    champion and Chinese teammate Dong Dong, who added a third Olympic medal to the
    gold he captured in London and the bronze he earned in Beijing.Im not
    disappointed, Dong said. I think that (Hancharou) did very well. He was
    outstanding. I watched him with admiration.Hancharou started jumping when he was
    6, a bit of a late start in a country whhere trampolinists often begin training
    at 4.dddddddddddd He rose quickly through the ranks and wasted little time
    making an impact at the highest level. He took bronze at the world championships
    in 2014 and was the runner-up to Gao last fall. While Gao opted to continue
    adding difficulty to his set of 10 skills that often take the gymnasts upwards
    of 25 feet in the air, Hancharou opted to go the other way, choosing precision
    instead.Its all about tactics, Hancharou said.The gold was the first for Belarus
    in Rio de Janeiro, a moment Hancharou would have preferred to enjoy with the
    other five members of the Belarussian national team. Yet hes the only one that
    qualified for the games and his steady performance helped end Chinas decade-long
    run at the top. Hancharous victory was the first by a non-Chinese athlete in a
    world championship or Olympics since 2005.Hancharou joked he would put his medal
    under his pillow when he heads back home as he prepares to enter the prime of
    his career.At 27, Dong finds himself on the other end of the spectrum. He
    admitted he was tired after competing in his third Olympics and is unsure how
    much longer hell keep going. ' ' '
