But Robert Griffin III and Co. swept their way to the NFC East crown by beating the Cowboys for the second time in Week 17. The division looks wide open again with Cowboys, ‘Skins and Eagles all saddled with three losses but still within a half-game of each other. The Redskins didn’t get their first W until Week 4 then went on bye.
USA vs. Panama: Biggest Thing Each Team Needs to Do to Ensure Victory
Even after being on the losing end of the 2011 Gold Cup final, Howard was never willing to concede that there was a gap between Mexico and the U.S. national team. So perhaps it shouldnt come as a surprise that Howard made a point to remind people who finished at the top of the Hexagonal round of World Cup qualifying. Jurgen Klinsmann has helped the USA back to the top of CONCACAF. (AP Photo) Were proud (of topping the Hexagonal) because, depending on who you asked, we were a million miles away from Mexico, and we never believed that, Howard said. When you talk about the semifinal round and the Hex, doing it over a long period of time shows that were once again the best team in CONCACAF. Thats not lip service, thats what the standings tell us, so were proud of that. Over the last two years all weve been hearing about is how dominant Mexicos been, and look, thats what happens at the top, theres going to be that ebb and flow. In 2011, after Mexico handed the USA a 4-2 loss in the Gold Cup final, it looked as though Mexico was set up for a run of dominating form. The gold medal in the 2012 Olympics only boosted El Tris credentials, and with the USA not even qualifying for that tournament, it gave the feeling that Mexico was leaving the Americans in the dust. Things started to really change from the start of 2013, when Mexicos own struggles began. El Tri failed to win any of its first five qualifiers, while the USA shook off a Hex-opening loss to Honduras to eventually take over the group. For us, it wasnt a shaky start, Howard said. It was a tough loss on a hot day in Honduras, and it was only one game. After that match we still had nine to go and we hadnt played a home game yet.

(Photo: Brian Jenkins, for the Burlington Free Press) Story Highlights Canadians build 3-0 lead, hang on to win by a goal U.S. coach: “We played probably 18 minutes of really hard-nosed USA hockey, so we’ve got a ways to go” Scuffle breaks out at end after USA player collides with Canadian goalie SHARE 3 CONNECT 6 TWEET COMMENTEMAILMORE BURLINGTON, Vt. – It’s a long road to the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, and two North American rivals took one more step along the way as Canada held fast for a 3-2 victory against the USA women’s hockey team at Gutterson Fieldhouse on Saturday night. “You better be ready to play when the puck drops and play 60 minutes of hockey,” said USA coach Katie Stone after her team turned in a lackluster opening 40 minutes. “We played probably 18 minutes of really hard-nosed USA hockey, so we’ve got a ways to go,” Stone said after Canada built a 3-0 lead and absorbed the USA’s late two-goal counterattack. “We kind of floundered a little bit early on but we’ll get there,” Stone said. “The good news is we came on as the game went on. We scored two goals, we put a ton of pressure on them at the end We need to start faster.” Canada had the edge in offensive zone time in a scoreless first period, netted two goals in the second and pushed the lead to 3-0 early in the third. The USA broke through with a two-player advantage power play goal at mid-third, cut the deficit to one with 5:31 remaining and drove hard to the finish. Those final minutes included not only several good USA chances but a skirmish that earned two players on each team five-minute roughing majors and game misconducts after USA forward Jocelyne Lamoureux collided with Canada goalie Shannon Szabados at 16:53. Szabados sprawled on the ice and her teammates came to her defense, setting off a lengthy tussle in the corner.
The U.S. still have one more qualifying match, against a Panama side that needs a win to hold on to any chance of qualifying for Brazil. The Americans also have to atone for what was a poor showing against Jamaica. Here’s what each team needs to do the most in order to come away with three points on Tuesday. United States: Play with Some Urgency and Determination It’s pretty simply what the United States need to doactually play. For the first 60-65 minutes of that 2-0 win against Jamaica, they were asleep at the wheel. Yes, the United States have qualified, leaving very little importance on this final game. That doesn’t give the players license to go through the motions for 90 minutes. Juergen Klinsmann is purposefully choosing the players he thinks have the most to prove regarding their spot on the team. Aside from the performances of Edgar Castillo and Graham Zusi, there wasn’t much to write home about. Should the United States play like that again, they’ll be dead in the water.
