ORCHARD PARK, N. Nike Air Force One Deutschland .Y. -- Once LeSean McCoy eluded two defenders and cut up the right sideline with nothing but the end zone in front of him, the Bills running back had time to glance up at the big screen and start celebrating.You can just hear the crowd yelling, McCoy said, recalling his 75-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. You feel the guy (behind you) and then you look on the screen and I know Ive got him beat.McCoys touchdown provided the Bills the spark they needed to persevere through a topsy-turvy second half and pull out a 28-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.It was McCoys second touchdown of the game, the longest of his career, and breathed life into a Tyrod Taylor-led offense that had managed just 63 yards of offense in the first half.Its huge. It gave the entire team life, guard Richie Incognito said.It provided a boost to Buffalos defense, too.Its like were back, said cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman. Its like get back out there and do what we do. Fresh start.The Bills (6-5) won for the second straight week in which theyve trailed at the half to stay in the AFC playoff picture.And Taylor overcame a fourth-quarter deficit for just the second time in 25 games.Taylors 16-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter with 10:46 remaining put the Bills ahead for good, and he also scored on a 7-yard run.The game was decided with four minutes left, when the Jaguars were unable to convert a fourth-and-9 at the Buffalo 46. Blake Bortles hit Marquise Lee on a crossing pattern over the middle, but he was limited to a 4-yard gain.The Bills then took over and ran out the clock.The Jaguars (2-9) lost for the sixth straight game -- their longest skid since opening the 2014 season at 0-6. And they did so by blowing a fourth-quarter lead for the third time this season.We just cant get over the hill, said Jaguars defensive lineman Malik Jackson, who had two sacks.We have moral victories and thats good for us because were learning and were getting better, Jackson added. But when compared to the other 31 teams in the league, were not doing too good. And thats what we get graded on.Bortles went 13 of 26 for 126 yards and two touchdowns, and also had a career-best 81 yards rushing. The Jaguars, who entered the game with a league-high 22 giveaways, also didnt turn the ball over.Injuries, however, became an issue.Chris Ivory, who opened the scoring with a 2-yard run , was sidelined in the first half by a hamstring injury. And then Jacksonville lost receiver Allen Hurns, also with a hamstring injury while diving into the end zone on a 12-yard catch and run .The Bills overcame their growing list of injured players.McCoy, who also scored on a 2-point conversion, finished with 103 yards rushing and showed few signs of being bothered a week after having surgery for a dislocated left thumb.Receiver Sammy Watkins had three catches for 80 yards -- including a 62-yard reception -- playing his first game in nine weeks since aggravating an injury to his surgically repaired left foot.It just shows the resiliency of this bunch, Incognito said. It just keeps our dream alive.JAGS BIG OPENINGThe Jaguars snapped the NFLs longest active drought by scoring on their opening possession for the first time in 25 games. The streak began in Week 3 of the 2015 season, and featured the Jaguars combining for three field goals, punting 18 times and turning the ball over three times.Ivorys touchdown capped an 11-play, 75-yard drive spanning 6:45. The Jaguars converted three third-down chances, including their last one courtesy of a defensive holding penalty against Corey White on third-and-goal from the 3.SPECIAL TEAMSBills kicker Dan Carpenter missed his first point-after attempt wide left, his third this season. On the bright side for Buffalo, Brandon Tates 43-yard punt return late in the second quarter set up the Bills first score -- a five-play, 22-yard drive.INJURIESJaguars: Ivory (hamstring), WR Rashad Greene Sr. (Achilles) and FS Peyton Thompson (ankle) and Hurns (hamstring), who was hurt while diving into the end zone on his touchdown catch.Bills: CB Ronald Darby (concussion), WR Walter Powell (left ankle), DT Marcell Dareus (abdomen).NEXT UPJaguars: Host Denver on Dec. 4.Bills: At Oakland on Dec. 4.---For more NFL coverage:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Nike Huarache Günstig Ebay . -- Jaye Marie Green shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday to increase her lead to five strokes after the second round of the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament.

Former two-division world champion and Hall of Famer Bobby Chacon, one of the most exciting and popular fighters of his time, died Wednesday -- 42 years to the day after he won his first world title. He was 64.Chacon, who was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2005, had suffered from pugilistic dementia for years, a result of the many brutal fights he participated in during his professional career, which spanned from 1972 to 1988. He died in Lake Elsinore, California, under hospice care while surrounded by family members.Born Nov. 28, 1951 in Sylmar, California, Chacon (59-7-1, 47 KOs), who was nicknamed Schoolboy for his youthful, good looks and the fact he was a student for a time at Cal State Northridge, was a popular ticket seller in Southern California, and its no wonder given the ferocity of so many of his fights.With profound sadness, I have learned that our dear champion Bobby Chacon passed away this morning, said WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman. May God have him now. RIP.Chacons first big win came by ninth-round knockout against Danny Little Red Lopez, another Southern California star, in May 1974. That bout helped launch Chacon, who knocked out 23 of his first 25 opponents.In the fight after beating Lopez, Chacon stopped Alfredo Marcano in the ninth round on Sept. 7, 1974, at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles to win the vacant WBC featherweight title.He made one successful defense, knocking out Jesus Estrada in the second round in March 1975 and then lost the belt by second-round knockout to fellow Hall of Famer Ruben Olivares, who had handed him his first career defeat via ninth-round knockout in 1973. Chacon beat Olivares by a 10-round unanimous decision in their third fight in 1977.In 1979, Chacon had another shot at a world title but was stopped by then-WBC junior lightweight champion Alexis Arguello, also a Hall of Famer, in the seventh round. In 1981, Chacon challenged Cornelius Boza-Edwards for the same bellt and was stopped in the 13th round of their epic first fight. Nike Air Presto Deutschland Kaufen. Chacon won their 1983 rematch by unanimous decision in the Ring Magazine fight of the year.Finally, on Dec. 11, 1982, in his third try at the same 130-pound title, Chacon won a 15-round decision against rival Rafael Bazooka Limon -- they fought four times with Chacon getting the edge 2-1-1 in memorable battles -- in another Ring Magazine fight of the year.In 1984, Chacon moved up to lightweight to challenge Ray Boom Boom Mancini, also a Hall of Famer, for his title but got knocked out in the third round in what would be his final title bout. The fight was immortalized in the 1987 Warren Zevon song Boom Boom Mancini.Chacon would then win his final seven fights, including a decision against Freddie Roach, a journeyman fighter who went on to a Hall of Fame career as an all-time great trainer.One of the West Coasts top ring attractions, with his all-action, aggressive ring style, Bobby Chacon was a true fan favorite, said Hall of Fame executive director Edward Brophy. The Hall of Fame joins the worldwide boxing community in mourning his passing and offer our condolences to his family.As compelling as Chacon was to watch in the ring, his personal life added to the drama. He had his share of troubles due to a well-known penchant for partying, which led to alcohol and drug addiction and legal difficulties. He also was married four times with his first wife, Valerie, who had begged him to quit fighting, committing suicide in March 1982. Her death came the night before he was scheduled to fight. Chacon went through with the bout, dedicated it to her memory and knocked out Salvador Ugalde in the third round.Chacon is survived by son Jamie, daughters Donna and Alexis, mother Gloria Banegas and stepfather John Banegas. Another son, Bobby Jr., died in 1995. ' ' '
