BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens played defense in a fashion Rex Ryan could surely appreciate -- even if the performance came at his teams expense.Baltimore used a touchdown pass by Joe Flacco , two field goals and a throwback defensive effort to beat the Buffalo Bills 13-7 on Sunday in the season opener.Getting 11 tackles from cornerback Shareece Wright, the Ravens limited Buffalo to 160 yards and sacked former teammate Tyrod Taylor twice.Thats how Baltimore played defense under Ryan from 1999-2008, and thats how it won the 2012 Super Bowl.Ryan is now Buffalos head coach, and it pained him to see his offense struggle against a defensive unit that last year yielded 401 points.Its a pretty darn good defense over there, Ryan said. Im probably one of the only coaches thatll give credit to the opponent because they deserve it. That defense played extremely well. Theyre well coached and they got after us.Returning from a knee injury that ended his season last November, Flacco went 23 for 34 for 258 yards, including a long touchdown pass to newcomer Mike Wallace in the second quarter that put the Ravens ahead for good.That, plus field goals of 50 and 37 yards by Justin Tucker, was enough for Baltimores first season-opening victory since 2012.Taylor used his quickness to avoid a ferocious pass rush, but he had little success passing downfield. He was 15 of 22 for only 111 yards and ran five times for 11 yards.Getting Tyrod on the ground is pretty difficult, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. We would have had him a few more times, but he made plays with his feet.Baltimore took a 10-0 lead when Wallace got behind Stephon Gilmore, took a pass in stride and pulled away for the 66-yard touchdown. Signed as a free agent to enhance an offense that last year lacked a deep threat, Wallace hadnt been part of a play that long since 2012 with Pittsburgh.We made one mistake: Its my fault, its on me, Ryan said. We should have doubled the receiver that caught the touchdown. Instead we doubled somebody else.Buffalo used the elusiveness of Taylor in the pocket to close to 10-7 before halftime. After wriggling from the grasp of Albert McClellan and sidestepping Terrell Suggs, Taylor completed a 33-yard pass to Charles Clay, setting up a 1-yard touchdown run by LeSean McCoy on fourth down.The Bills missed a chance to pull even when Dan Carpenter was wide right on a 49-yard field goal try midway through the third quarter.INJURY UPDATE: Bills starting LT Cory Glenn (ankle) and TE Jim Dray (ankle) both left with injuries in the second quarter and did not return. Bills DT Jerel Worthy left with a knee injury in the fourth quarter and did not return. The Ravens did not report any injuries.ROOKIE BLUNDER & THUNDER: In his first NFL game, Ravens top draft pick left tackle Ronnie Stanley jumped offside on third-and-1 early in the first quarter. On Baltimores next possession, the teams top pick in 2015, Breshad Perriman, made his first NFL reception with a leaping grab at the sideline for a 35-yard gain. Perriman missed the entire 2015 season with a knee injury.WHERES WATKINS?: One reason Taylor was so successful last year was he utilized Sammy Watkins as a deep threat. Watkins was practically invisible during the first half, making only two short receptions for a total of 13 yards. Watkins finished with four catches for 43 yards.SMITH & SUGGS RETURN: Ravens receiver Steve Smith and Suggs returned to regular-season action after having their 2015 season cut short by torn Achilles tendons. Smith caught five passes for 19 yards and stands 53 yards short of passing James Lofton for 10th place on the career list. Suggs had a sack.NO HAPPY RETURNS: In his debut with the Ravens, Devin Hester, one of the great kick returners in NFL history, took back two kickoffs for 18 yards and two punts for 0 yards.QUOTABLE: Someone asked Harbaugh to describe Flaccos stature in the pocket coming off a serious injury: Joe is as tough as a $2 steak. Whats a $2 steak nowadays?McCoy, who scored his 60th career TD: It was a bad day. We didnt get nothing going sideways. We had one long drive and that was it.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Andre Johnson Texans Jersey . JOHNS, N.

Lonnie Johnson Womens Jersey .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. OAKLAND, Calif. -- As the Oakland defense struggled through the first five weeks of the season, Derek Carr and the offense managed to repeatedly pick the team up and help the Raiders get off to their best start in 14 years.When Carr and the offense struggled to move the ball against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Raiders had no chance.Carr committed two turnovers and led the Raiders to just one score after the opening drive and the Chiefs picked apart Oaklands defense for a 26-10 victory Sunday.It hurts man, Carr said. We didnt do good enough at all. That was bad. That was a bad performance by us.The Raiders (4-2) entered the game on pace to allow the most yards per play by a team since the 1970 merger, but still managed to be in first place thanks to an offense that always kept them in games.Carr led second-half comebacks against New Orleans, Baltimore and San Diego, but couldnt do much of anything against the Chiefs (3-2) after throwing a 3-yard touchdown pass to Andre Holmes on the opening drive of the game.I thought we got outcoached and outplayed, coach Jack Del Rio said. Take your pick.The Raiders managed to score just once on their final nine drives. Carr missed an open Michael Crabtree on a deep pass on the second drive that turned into an interception by Marcus Peters.Sebastian Janikowski missed a 52-yard field goal the next drive and Oakland was stopped on fourth down when Carr threw incomplete to Seth Roberts the following drive when Del Rio opted against another long field goal.A 25-second drive for a field goal to end the first half seemed to give the Raiders a lift, but Oakland managed just three punts, one losst fumble and a turnover on downs in a scoreless second half.ddddddddddddCarr finished 22 for 34 for 225 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He was hurt by a pair of third-down drops by Seth Roberts and Jalen Richard but wasnt sharp at all.After Carr connected nine times with Amari Cooper in the first half, the Chiefs adjusted their defense and limited Cooper to one catch in the second half.The running game managed just 65 yards on 17 carries with rookies DeAndre Washington and Richard unable to carry the load with Latavius Murray sidelined by a toe injury.That wasnt nearly enough to overcome a defense that allowed 183 yards rushing, gave up more than 390 yards of offense (406) for the sixth straight week, and forced just three punts and no turnovers.We go over this every week, linebacker Bruce Irvin said. Its the same. I dont know what else to tell you. Kansas City had a great game plan, hats off to them. They did a lot of window dressing. They did a lot of stuff, disguising stuff to make us believe one thing and they actually did another thing.The defensive performance has put heavy pressure on Carr and the offense all season.Carr downplayed that factor, saying his focus is on each individual drive and play and not on how the defense is playing overall.I really dont have time to think of those kinds of things, Carr said. My mindset is so focused on my job. Im just focused on that so I really dont think about that.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
