ATLANTA -- Harry Douglas made the most of his long-awaited opportunity to be more than a complement to star receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White in Atlantas offence. Douglas had seven receptions for a career-best 149 yards, including a 37-yard touchdown catch, to lead the Falcons to a 31-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Matt Ryan also threw two touchdown passes to Jacquizz Rodgers as the Falcons (2-4) snapped a three-game losing streak. Douglas flourished as Ryans No. 1 target with Jones out for the season with a foot injury and White inactive for the first time in his nine-year career due to hamstring and ankle injuries. "Im the type of person that I never shy away from it," Douglas said. "Julio went down. Roddy wasnt playing. I wanted the challenge. Ive always been like that my whole life." Ryan completed 20 of 26 passes for 273 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. Ryan said he expected a big game from Douglas, a fifth-year receiver who has never reached 500 yards receiving or had more than one touchdown catch in a season. "I dont think anyone in our locker room was surprised by his play," Ryan said. "Its what hes capable of doing. You may not know that about him because weve had those other guys." Atlanta managed only 18 yards rushing as running back Steven Jackson missed his fourth straight game with a hamstring injury. The loss left the Buccaneers (0-6) still looking for their first win. "Nobody wants to be in this situation," said Tampa Bay defensive end Adrian Clayborn. "Weve got to deal with it." Trailing 31-17, the Buccaneers held the ball for 18 plays and over 9 minutes in a marathon fourth-quarter drive that produced a first down at the Falcons 5. Four penalties on the possession, including a facemask call against Jackson that pushed the Bucs back to the 15, helped force Tampa Bay to settle for Rian Lindells 41-yard field goal with 5 minutes remaining. Lindell added his third field goal of the game, from 36 yards, with 2 minutes remaining. The Falcons ran out the clock after recovering an onside kick. Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin left the game early in the third quarter with a shoulder injury and did not return. Martin had 11 carries for 47 yards before he was injured while attempting to catch a 16-yard pass near the left sideline. A side judge threw a penalty flag for an apparent unnecessary roughness on Falcons safety William Moore, but referee Walt Anderson withdrew the flag. Martin lay on his back for several minutes before walking off the field under his own power. He said X-rays "look fine" and the shoulder is not separated. "Were still evaluating what it is," Martin said. He said he is "not sure yet" if he would play in Thursday nights game against Carolina. "Just have to hope for the best," he said. Moore sacked Mike Glennon to force a fumble on Tampa Bays first possession. Safety Thomas DeCoud returned the fumble recovery 30 yards for a touchdown. Glennon, making his first road start, completed 26 of 44 passes for 256 yards and two touchdowns to Vincent Jackson. "He went on the road and showed he can handle the pressure on the road," said Tampa Bay receiver Mike Williams of Glennon. "As a team, weve got to help him and make more plays for him." Jackson, targeted on 22 passes, had 10 catches for 138 yards, including touchdown receptions of 59 yards in the second quarter and 1 yard in the third quarter. Jacksons second scoring catch was Tampa Bays first third-quarter touchdown this season. Entering the game, the Buccaneers had only 13 second-half points. Tampa Bay was called for 11 penalties for 103 yards. Following DeCouds touchdown, the Falcons stretched their lead to 14-0 on Ryans first touchdown pass to Rodgers, a 19-yarder early in the second quarter. Douglas added a 37-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter as the Falcons led 24-7 at halftime. After Tampa Bay cut the lead to 24-17 on Jacksons second touchdown catch, the Falcons answered with an 80-yard touchdown drive which ended with Rodgers 8-yard catch over the middle. michael kors handbags cheap.ca!

PHOENIX -- Morgan Pressel had a befitting start at Wildfire Golf Club. She was 6 under after six holes, then 9 under through 11. Golfs magic number of 59 -- accomplished only on the LPGA Tour by Annika Sorenstam in 2001 at nearby Moon Valley -- was in range and word spread quickly Thursday at the JTBC Founders Cup. "Wow. Go Morgan," friend Natalie Gulbis tweeted. "I dont know if I was necessarily thinking 59, but I probably just got a little bit excited, because I had never been that many under par in that short of a span," Pressel said. "I just got a little bit quick and came back to earth." She did, bogeying the next two holes and closing with five pars for a 7-under 65 that left her a stroke behind first-round leader Mirim Lee. After birdieing Nos. 1 and 2 -- her 10th and 11th holes -- to reach 9 under, Pressel pulled her drive left on the par-4 third. Her ball lodged at the base of a short bush, with the bulk of the branches between the right-hander and the ball. There were burrowing animal holes near the ball, but they didnt interfere with a possible swing or stance. "I could have hit it left-handed and there were a couple of burrowing animal holes around," Pressel said. "I brought them (rules officials) over to ask, but I didnt honestly think that I was going to get relief and I dont think that I deserved it." Pressel took an unplayable lie and missed the green to the right, chipped to 7 feet and made the putt to save bogey. She also dropped a stroke on the par-3 fourth, missing a 15-footer after hitting another iron to the right. "It wasnt the finish that I would have hoped for, but it gives me a little bit of confidence knowing how many birdies I can make and Im capable of," she said. Pressel birdied the first four holes and made a 50-footer for eagle on the par-5 15th. She also birdied the par-3 17th and made the turn in 7-under 29. "I dont know that Ive ever gotten off to that hot of a start," Pressel said. A tour regular since she was 17, the 25-year-old Pressel won the 2007 Kraft Nabisco to become the youngest womens major champion.dddddddddddd She also won the 2008 Kapalua LPGA. "I definitely feel like I have the ability to win again," Pressel said. Lee also started on No. 10 and nearly matched Pressels start, playing her opening nine in 6-under 30. She had three birdies and a bogey on the front side for a 64. "Everything was good," said Lee, making her third LPGA Tour start. Defending champion Stacy Lewis, top-ranked Inbee Park and Michelle Wie were two strokes back at 66 along with 2011 winner Karrie Webb, Eun-Hee Ji, Catriona Matthew, Gerina Piller and Pernilla Lindberg. "A lot of tee shots set up well for me," Lewis said. "They fit my eye." Coming off a victory two weeks ago in China in a Ladies European Tour event, Park birdied the final three holes. She closed with a tap-in birdie on the par-4 ninth after nearly holing a full pitching wedge. "It was a very solid round," Park said. "Very good irons." Wie eagled the par-5 fifth. "I hit 3-wood, 5-iron over the green and then chipped in," Wie said. Sixteen-year-old Lydia Ko had a 67. Playing alongside Park, Ko closed with a bogey after driving left into the desert. "I forgot to bring my food and my protein bars," Ko said. "Thats my excuse." DIVOTS: Paula Creamer, a playoff winner three weeks ago in Singapore in the last LPGA Tour event, shot 70.
