    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Geno Smith got hurt and Ryan Fitzpatrick got mad, calling out team brass after coming off the bench to rally the New York Jets to a 24-16 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.The biggest thing in this game, in order to last, is to have belief in yourself, because when the owner stops believing in you, the GM stops believing in you, and the coaches stop believing in you, sometimes all you have is yourself, said a defiant Fitzpatrick, who was benched last week.Thats kind of something Ive had to deal with before, something Im dealing with now.Smith started his first game since Dec. 28, 2014, but he twisted his right knee on a second-quarter sack and left the game. He will have an MRI exam on Monday.Something just felt funny when I got up, Smith said. I dont think it will be anything too significant, but well see.Coach Todd Bowles said its too early to tell if Smith will be healthy enough to start next Sunday versus the Browns.Fitzpatrick, in the unfamiliar role of relief pitcher, entered the game with the Jets trailing 13-7?in the second quarter. On his first series, he went 4-for-4, including a 13-yard scoring pass to Matt Forte to culminate an 85-yard drive.Fitzpatrick (9-for-14, 120 yards) admitted he played angry.I probably play better as an underdog, pissed off, so going forward, yeah, Ill be pissed off, he said.Fitzpatrick learned of his demotion on Tuesday, the day after Bowles gave him a public vote of confidence following a Monday night loss to the Arizona Cardinals -- the Jets fourth straight defeat. The quarterback leads the league?with 11 interceptions.Owner Woody Johnson told the NFL Network he was fully supportive of Bowles decision to bench Fitzpatrick, who signed a one-year, $12 million contract on the eve of training camp.Clearly, Fitzpatrick was stung by the benching.Asked about the perceived lack of support from the brass, he said, When you get put on the bench, I think thats the reason why. People giving up on you, and then having to see them every day, that stuff is not necessarily the easiest in the world, but its something that you try to deal with as mature as you can and move on.Fitzpatrick got the call when Smith, after only 24 plays, retreated to the bench and started complaining about his knee. Fitzpatrick knew he was headed back to the huddle.Yeah, unless they wanted to go to Wildcat, I thought Id be the guy, he said, smiling. But its a pretty ironic situation.Sundays injury was another blow for Smith, who said he was begging to go back in the game.Thats how stuff works, man, said Smith, who completed 4 of 8 passes for 95 yards and a touchdown. Thats how life works. Im not thinking about that right now. Im just happy that we won. Ill be fine, but well see how it goes. Cheap Falcons Jerseys .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Its rare to see the U.S. womens basketball team struggle during the Olympics. Then again, theyve had Sue Bird running the show for over a decade.With the starting point guard sidelined with a knee injury, the Americans were out of sorts for a half before finally getting it together to pull away from France in an 86-67 win in the semifinals Thursday night. Now theyre back in the Olympic final once again, one victory away from a sixth consecutive gold medal.U.S. coach Geno Auriemma made it a point, however, after the game to stress that unforeseen developments like Birds injury makes it a little bit harder than just who the U.S. will beat next and whens the gold-medal ceremony.Its not like that, Auriemma said, and our players really found out today that without Sue its certainly not going to be like that. Theres a big difference in our team the way we played today and the way we played the other six games.Birds status for Saturdays final versus Spain is unclear.The U.S. and Spain played in the preliminary round and the U.S. won that one by 40. The Americans also beat Spain in the 2014 world championship by 13.Its going to be the same old dance, Diana Taurasi said. They have world-class players. ... This is going to be a great game between great teams and great players alike.Taurasi scored 18 points and Maya Moore added 15 against France in what was the closest game of the Olympics for the Americans. It was a rematch of the 2012 London Games gold-medal contest. The U.S. won that one by 36 points, but it had a much harder time in this one without Bird.The point guard sprained her right knee capsule in the quarterfinals and has been listed as day-to-day. She had started every game for the U.S. the past three Olympics and been a calming influence on offense for the Americans. Brid said she plans to practice Friday.Im not going to be stupid about this, Bird said. Its your body, you have to listen to it, you dont want to put yourself in danger, but if I can play Im definitely playing.The U.S. had cruised through its first six games, winning by nearly 42 points a game and scoring at a record pace. Without Bird, the Americans looked discombobulated at times on offense against France.dddddddddddd The team that was averaging 105 points and 30 assists was held to just 40 points in the opening 20 minutes and just four assists.Dressed in a blue sweatsuit, Bird was anxious on the bench. It was the first time in 31 Olympic contests she wasnt on the court.During the game, pretty hard. Pretty hard, she said of not being on the court. We were just a little out of sorts, and I feel like I can help in that department. So it was difficult. But they did a great job.The U.S. held a slim 40-36 at the break, the closest any team had been to the Americans at the half since Australia led them in the semifinals of the 2012 Olympics.But the Americans (7-0) started playing a better on both ends of the court in the decisive third quarter. As the starters were about to take the court for the start of the second half, Bird huddled them up and could be seen offering words of encouragement and instructions.The team seemed to get the message, going on a 14-5 run to start the period, including two 3-pointers by Taurasi that gave the Americans some breathing room. Those shots gave Taurasi a record 28 3-pointers in the Olympics -- the most ever in the tournament.Though the U.S. outscored France 25-8 in the period, it had two 24-second shot clock violations. It was rare in the first six games if the shot clock ever got under five seconds.I think they decided to play basketball, and when they decide its hard to stop them, at least in one-on-one, French center Isabelle Yacoubou said. Its really hard. Theyre very talented. We know that.The Americans led by 21 at the end of the third quarter, but France (4-3) didnt quit. The French cut the lead to 11 in the fourth but could get no closer.It was only the second time in Rio that the U.S. didnt reach 100 points in a game. But it did get the win and now has 48 consecutive Olympic victories.Marianne Johannes scored 13 to lead France, which will play Serbia for the bronze medal on Saturday.
