FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Jimmy Garoppolo made his preseason debut, spreading the ball around for 168 yards, and Jamie Collins added a 43-yard interception return for a touchdown to help the New England Patriots beat the New Orleans Saints 34-22 on Thursday night.Garoppolo played the entire first half as he preps to start the first four games of the regular season with Tom Brady suspended for his involvement in the Deflategate case. Brady was not in the building Thursday, excused by the team to attend memorial services for a family member.Saints running back Mark Ingram had an early fumble, but also had two 1-yard touchdown runs in an extended night that saw him play most of the first half. Second-year quarterback Garrett Grayson threw an early interception, but completed a few long passes to finish 10 for 16 for 133 yards.Defensive end Kasim Edebali had two first-quarter sacks.After a slow start, Garoppolo completed several long passes and finished 11 of 18.Trey Flowers added a 17-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, scooping up the loose ball created by his sack of Luke McCown.BRONCOS 22, BEARS 0CHICAGO -- Mark Sanchez made a strong opening argument for Denvers starting quarterback job, throwing for 99 yards and a touchdown in the first quarter in the defending Super Bowl champion Broncos victory over Chicago.Sanchez came through with just the sort of performance he needed if hes going to beat out Trevor Siemian. The former Jets quarterback completed 10 of 13 passes in the first quarter and led a game-opening 76-yard touchdown drive. He had a pass intercepted by Jerrell Freeman on the Broncos second possession.Sanchez maintained his cool against Chicagos pressure and kept the opening drive going by completing three third-down passes -- including a 32-yard TD to a wide open Demaryius Thomas along the right side.As for Siemian, the former Northwestern star looked comfortable throwing short passes and was 7 of 12 for 88 yards in the second quarter.Chicago starter Jay Cutler threw for 18 yards and got sacked twice in the first quarter. Brian Hoyer threw for 81 yards in the second period, but was sacked three times.RAVENS 22, PANTHERS 19BALTIMORE -- Cam Newton directed a 68-yard drive in his only series, then stepped aside in Carolinas loss to Baltimore.The NFL MVP was 5 for 6 for 36 yards before being replaced by 33-year-old Derek Anderson.Graham Gano kicked four field goals for the Panthers. They went 15-1 last year and won the NFC championship before falling to Denver in the Super Bowl.Baltimore was without quarterback Joe Flacco as he returns from a knee injury. Running back Justin Forsett, wide receivers Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman, and linebackers Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil were also held out of the game.Anderson threw a TD pass to Devin Funchess for a 10-0 lead before the Ravens answered with touchdowns by Terrance West and Javorius Allen.JETS 17, JAGUARS 13EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Blake Bortles led Jacksonville on two scoring drives, the second capped by Chris Ivorys 1-yard run against his former team, in a loss to New York.Bortles finished 6 of 7 for 105 yards in his two series, Allen Robinson caught three passes for 80 yards and the Jaguars took a quick 10-0 lead with their starters in the game. Ivory, who signed with Jacksonville as a free agent after three seasons in New York, capped the second drive with his TD.Ryan Fitzpatrick, who re-signed with the Jets just before training camp after a long contract stalemate, also went two series with the starters and was 3 of 4 for 72 yards. Bilal Powell capped the second drive, which included catches of 26 and 43 yards by Quincy Enunwa, with a 4-yard touchdown run.Geno Smith replaced Fitzpatrick with 9:49 left in the second half on the one-year anniversary of the punch that changed the Jets season -- and possibly Smiths career. The former starting quarterback had his jaw broken by a punch from then-teammate IK Enemkpali in the locker room, sidelining Smith and pushing Fitzpatrick into the job. Smith finished 8 of 14 for 79 yards, including a 17-yard TD pass to seventh-rounder Charone Peake that gave the Jets a 14-13 lead with 22 seconds left in the opening half.FALCONS 23, REDSKINS 17ATLANTA -- Matt Schaub made a successful return to his first NFL home, passing for 179 yards and leading three scoring drives in Atlantas victory over Washington.The 35-year-old Schaub began his career with the Falcons as Michael Vicks backup from 2004-06. He played seven seasons as Houstons starter and the past two years with Baltimore and Oakland.After starter Matt Ryan was 0 for 4 and could not manage a first down on two possessions, Schaub moved the offense by finding Aldrick Robinson for passes of 47 and 68 yards. Schaub completed 10 of 15 passes for 179 yards, giving Atlanta a 13-3 halftime lead.Falcons rookie J.D. McKissic returned a kickoff 101 yards for a touchdown to open the second half.Redskins starter Kirk Cousins completed each of his five passes for 39 yards on his only possession. Washington third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld led two touchdown drives.EAGLES 17, BUCCANEERS 9PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia needed 1:37 to score its only touchdowns in beating sloppy Tampa Bay.The Eagles covered 27 yards on their two drives to the end zone, with each series lasting three plays after Tampa Bay fumbles. Ryan Mathews had a 5-yard run to make it 7-0 after Tampa Bay fumbled the opening kickoff, and Chase Daniel scooted 3 yards for the second score after Jameis Winston had the ball stripped.No. 2 overall draft pick Carson Wentz played just more than a half at quarterback for the Eagles. Perhaps his most noteworthy play came when he went flying acrobatically on a fourth-quarter run after a tackle by rookie cornerback Javien Elliott.Winston threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Russell Shepard.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org

Multigame esports organization Luminosity has signed Mustafa Ice Akcakaya, making it the latest top organization to enter Super Smash Bros. Melee.Following an impressive third-place finish at The Big House 6, Ice will be representing Luminosity at Eclipse 2 in Jessheim, Norway, this weekend.In a statement to ESPN, Luminosity CEO Steve Buyaka Maida said, Ice has been on fire lately, and after talking to him in depth, it was clear that with some support from us he would be able to focus on becoming the best he can be. Were thrilled to have him on board and further solidify our footprint in the Smash scene.Ice is elated to be part of Luminosity. I am feeling like its a new step into a more successful future as an esports athlete, he said.Hailing from Germany, one of the biggest issues facing Ice had been travel, as most of the competitive Melee scene is in North America. But with this new sponsorship, Ice feels that not only will he be able to attend most major tournaments, but that his skills will improve as well.The sponsorship will hellp me be even more focused on Smash, which in return will end up in an increase of the quality in my game play, he said.ddddddddddddIce has been playing Melee full time since mid-2015 and is currently ranked 17th based on Melee it on Mes global ranking. Because the German scene is so small, it has been difficult for Ice to improve as a player. For the most part, he has been practicing alone against level-one computer opponents as provided by the game itself. His ability to take on top talent without the same amount of top-level practice is no small feat.This isnt Luminositys first foray into Smash. Earlier this month, the organization picked up Super Smash Bros. for Wii U player Yuta Abadango Kawamura.With this new sponsorship, Ice now wants to move to the United States. All he has to do is begin his athletic visa application, which is not a simple process. But for Ice, If I get all that stuff, I move ASAP.
