NFL ? Mark Sanchez will play against Chicago on Sunday

The quarterback from the NY Jets, Mark Sanchez, has announced that he will play for the playoffs berth even if his shoulder is not at its best, for he understand the kind of pressure set upon the team to make it into the playoffs.  Sanchez was a bit limited on practice this Wednesday, but there are rumors that it is just a matter of time before he can be back in top shape for this game.

The New York Jets would be able to clinch a playoff berth if the team can manage to defeat the Chicago Bears. Right now, the Jets are 10-4 for the season, the same exact season record that the Jets hold. If the Jets win, they could link their second consecutive playoffs berth under head coach Rex Ryan.

Sanchez underwent an MRI exam on his shoulder after the game. The test revealed no serious injury, but his complains where enough to keep the offensive team on hold earlier this week. The second-year quarterback is keeping things under the radar during the season. He was part of all the running plays, just to make sure he knows exactly where to go during the game, but he didn’t throw much during the week, giving rest to his shoulder. The team doctors expect Sanchez to complete a full training before the game, and although the injury could worsen during the week, the team remains positive.

As of press time, the Bears are a -1 point favorite on the spread. The Jets are going to have to put on an impressive game at Soldier Field Stadium, when Mark Sanchez and Company make it to Chicago. The Jets are 10-4 for the season and 8-6-0 against the spread. Now, 5 of the last 8 games, the Jets have not been able to cover their spread.

The Chicago Bears on the other hand, are also 10-4, and sit 7-6-1 Against the spread. The Bears have had a decent performance when playing against the spread. Out of the last ten games of the season, the Chicago Bears have covered the spread in 5, have failed to do so in 4 and have pushed 1. The last four games they have played, have stayed over the opening line total.

The Bears linked 5 consecutive wins before stumbling upon the New England Patriots two weeks ago. Tom Brady and the Patriots outplayed the Bears and defeated them by 7-36. Then it was payback time. With the legendary Brett Favre out of the game, the Vikings had very little chance to win, and the Bears crushed Minnesota by 40-14.

The Jets panic alarm went off when they played at New England. Again it was tom Brady who kept punishing the Jets on the air and kept them off the radar in the Patriots 3-45 whooping of the Jets. The Jets then failed to win their next game against the Miami Dolphins. A very important win against the Steelers kept the Jets’ chances to make it into the playoffs open.  There is a lot at stake for this game, so stay tuned and don’t miss the best NFL betting action at Betias.com

Lionel Messi 2013: Barcelona star answers critics with winners against AC Milan (Photos)

Lionel Messi delivered one of the most magisterial displays of his career to lift Barcelona to a sensational Champions League comeback against AC Milan. The 25-year-old star produced two goals in a thrilling 4-0 home victory on Tuesday (March 12, 2013) to help the Spaniards reach the quarter-finals. After a surprise 2-0 reverse at San Siro stadium in last month’s first leg, Barca was in a supposed crisis, its crown as Europe’s dominant force precariously balanced. If the Catalan giants failed to move past AC Milan in Champions League, there would be far-reaching consequences for both the team and Lionel Messi. The soccer fans looked to Messi to spark a fightback and the four-times World Player of the Year did not disappoint them. That was all it took as the Argentinian forward scored twice in the first 40 minutes of 16 second-leg match. The one-way traffic continued after the break as David Villa and Jordi Alba completed the remarkable result, pushing the team to a dramatic 4-0 win over Rossoneri at Camp Nou. Lionel Messi has occasionally struggled but his efforts for his club side have been virtually flawless.

Lionel Messi produced one of the most dazzling displays of his career to lead Barcelona to a stirring Champions League comeback against AC Milan on Tuesday (March 12, 2013), keeping alive the club’s dream of adding to its modern dynasty of three European titles in the past six years.
