The president-elect said the group brings "diverse perspectives to their work and a shared commitment to building this country back better.”
LONDON — The sound of the thud from a clash of heads just added to concern.The game was only five minutes old at the Emirates Stadium when Wolverhampton forward Raul Jimenez and Arsenal defender David Luiz collided while jumping for the ball.The emptiness of the Emirates Stadium — with fans still excluded until next week due to the pandemic — made the troubling sound all the more audible.Concerns grew as Jimenez appeared motionless and was eventually wheeled off the field with an oxygen mask on.“I knew straight away that something was wrong,” Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo said. “Everyone called ‘red, red,’ which means it’s a bad situation. You see the panic in their eyes."By the time the Premier League game ended — with Wolves beating Arsenal 2-1 — there was a more encouraging update from the London hospital with Jimenez said to be conscious and talking.One of the lingering concerns, though, was why a bandaged and bloodied Luiz played on until the interval at a time when there is growing scrutiny into the long-term impact of head injuries. Trials of concussion substitutes are only due to begin in 2021.Arsenal maintained that Luiz never lost consciousness.“They have some tests they have to do before they put him back on the pitch, and then David was just concerned about the cut, nothing else," Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said. "They will continue to do some checks in the next few hours but he was fine.”The result was not fine for Arteta, with Arsenal languishing in 14th place and eight points off the lead after 10 games. That leader, unusually, is Tottenham, which drew 0-0 at Chelsea on Sunday.Another former Premier League champion avoided a day as miserable as Arsenal's. Manchester United fought back from two goals down to win 3-2 at Southampton.ARTETA'S STRUGGLESExactly a year to the day after Arsene Wenger's immediate successor, Unai Emery, was fired, Arteta is also struggling badly. With 13 points, Arsenal has its lowest tally after 10 games in 39 years.Wolves took the lead in the 27th minute when Pedro Neto slotted in a rebound after Leander Dendoncker’s header onto the crossbar. Although Gabriel's towering header drew Arsenal level three minutes later, Daniel Podence volleyed Wolves back in front after Neto’s shot bounced off goalkeeper Bernd Leno's legs.Next up in the Premier League for Arsenal is one of the biggest games of the season: the north London derby against Tottenham next Sunday, on the first weekend with some supporters allowed back into the capital's stadiums for the first time since March.MOURINHO'S PONIESWhile Jose Mourinho was accustomed to winning titles with Chelsea — three times — he is now in charge of a Tottenham side that hasn't won the championship since 1961.No wonder he keeps downplaying the prospect of still being first in May, despite Tottenham showing defensive resilience to draw at Stamford Bridge where the team has only won once in 30 years.The point, following last weekend's victory over Manchester City, put Tottenham ahead of champion Liverpool on goal difference and two points in front of third-place Chelsea.“We are not even in the race,” Mourinho claimed. “We are not a horse ... we are just a pony."UNITED COMEBACKMourinho faltered in his previous attempt to win the title at an English club other than Chelsea, lasting only two full seasons at Manchester United before being fired in 2018.Successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hasn't fared any better.Even after the comeback at Southampton, United is in eighth place, a point behind the south-coast hosts.The game was turned around by United — following Jan Bednarek’s header and James Ward-Prowse's free kick for Southampton — after the halftime introduction of free summer signing Edinson Cavani.The 33-year-old former Paris Saint-Germain striker set up Bruno Fernandes to reduce the deficit, nodded in the equalizer and then turned in Marcus Rashford's cross for a stoppage-time winner.“It’s a trait that Manchester United players always should have," Solskjaer said, “never to give up, never to give in."___More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsRob Harris, The Associated Press
STEINBACH, Man. — Mounties have ramped up enforcement at a Manitoba church that was slapped with a fine for holding a service last weekend that allegedly violated provincial COVID-19 health orders. The Church of God Restoration in Steinbach posted videos on its Facebook page that appear to show the church's empty, snow-covered parking lot, with RCMP officers positioned at its entrances and a long line of vehicles parked along the roadway. In one video, Pastor Tobias Tissen addressed the people in the vehicles via a radio transmitter from a pulpit outside the church, and claimed the officers blocking the entrance were "blocking God." No one with the church could be reached for comment. RCMP say that their officers were stationed at parking lot entrances to remind would-be churchgoers of public health rules, and warn them that attending a service would result in a fine. They say most people heeded the warning, save for one man who continued on to the church property and was fined $1,296. The province ordered churches to close earlier this month to deal with a surge in COVID-19 cases that has clogged the hospital system, saying people could only attend services virtually. The church previously confirmed it was ticketed and fined $5,000 for breaking a provincial public health order last Sunday, and RCMP said there were well over 100 people inside the church at the time. "What you all see this morning is not people recognizing the supremacy of God. Come on, if other stores can be essential and church is not essential, you're saying that God is not supreme," Tissen said from the pulpit in the Facebook video on Sunday. RCMP reminded people Friday that participating in any type of large gathering is now a contravention of the public health orders, and it specifically mentioned worship services in the Steinbach area. “Our goal is certainly not to hand out a bunch of tickets,” Steinbach Detachment Commander Harold Laninga said in the release. It said Sunday the investigation is continuing and that more tickets are possible. The Manitoba government said Sunday that officers would have been aware of the service, as well as reports of a drive-in church service on the weekend in Winnipeg, but that an update on enforcement action would not be available until Tuesday.

A slew of travel restrictions and rules meant to curb the spread of COVID-19 will be extended into January, the federal government said Sunday, as case counts continued to rise steadily across the country.In a statement, Public Safety Minister Bill Blair and Health Minister Patty Hajdu said the measures would be in effect until Jan. 21, 2021 for travellers entering Canada from a country other than the United States.The rules were first imposed near the start of the global outbreak."We have introduced a number of policies to keep Canadians safe but must remain flexible and adapt to the evolving COVID-19 situation," Blair said in a statement.The ministers said restrictions for visitors crossing the border from the U.S. are currently in place until Dec. 21, but may be extended. Among the new rules is a requirement for anyone entering the country to self-isolate for 14 days.But the ministers also said they're looking to make it possible for "high-performance, amateur sporting organizations" to hold major international events on Canadian soil.They said the successful applicants would need to present a public health plan as well as show they've secured the support of provincial and territorial governments and health authorities.The Department of Canadian Heritage will issue authorizations in consultation with the Health Agency of Canada, the ministers said.The announcement comes as COVID-19 case counts continued to mount, though at levels slightly below the record-setting daily tallies seen in several regions in recent weeks.Public health officials in Quebec reported 1,395 new cases on Sunday, while Ontario recorded 1,708 new infections -- pushing the provincial totals since the pandemic began to 141,038 and 114,746, respectively.Cases also have gone up steadily in Atlantic Canada, with New Brunswick reporting 14 new diagnoses on Sunday and Newfoundland and Labrador recording four additional infections.Public health officials in Nova Scotia logged 10 new cases, all in the province's central zone, which includes Halifax.Manitoba reported 365 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday and 11 new deaths -- almost all of which were linked to outbreaks in care homes. Health officials said nine of the 11 deaths were people in their 80s and 90s, one was a man in his 60s and one was a man in his 70s.The case count in Nunavut also rose by 13, while Saskatchewan reported 351 new infections. Alberta reported its second highest number of new COVID-19 cases, logging 1,608, with nine more deaths. Canada's top public health officer, Dr. Theresa Tam, said the highest rate of infection is among people aged 80 and over, while more outbreaks are happening in long-term care homes."Cases are increasing among older adults," Tam said in a statement.Both Quebec and Manitoba reported new, significant outbreaks at such facilities.A Montreal public health agency on Sunday transferred 20 residents of a long-term care home to two local hospitals after a COVID-19 outbreak drew widespread concern this week.Officials said 30 residents had tested positive for COVID-19 at Maimonides Geriatric Centre. Ten residents there have died during the pandemic’s second wave, according to the latest Quebec Health Department data.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 29, 2020.The Canadian Press

The Latest on Week 12 in the NFL (all times EST):___6:25 p.m.Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill are putting on quite a show.Mahomes and Hill connected for their third touchdown of the day, giving the Kansas City Chiefs a 27-10 lead over Tampa Bay with 7:00 left in the third quarter. Hill has 12 catches for 261 yards and the three scores.Mahomes is 30 of 38 for 412 yards. And there's plenty of time remaining.___6 p.m.The Denver Broncos have finally completed a pass, but they have a big hole to climb out of against New Orleans. All four of Denver's quarterbacks are out, which forced the Broncos to promote rookie receiver Kendall Hinton — a former college QB — from the practice squad for Sunday's game. Denver had just one first down and no completions in the first half against the Saints.Hinton eventually completed a short screen pass to Noah Fant in the third quarter, but shortly after that, he threw his second interception of the game.New Orleans leads 17-3.Denver is in this predicament after starter Drew Lock, backup Brett Rypien and practice squad veteran Blake Bortles were deemed high-risk close contacts with No. 3 quarterback Jeff Driskel, who tested positive for COVID-19.___5:40 p.m.San Francisco nickel back Jamar Taylor has left the field on a cart at SoFi Stadium late in the first half of a defence-dominated game between NFC West rivals.The 49ers lead the Rams 7-3 after a first half featuring five combined turnovers. Jared Goff fumbled near midfield shortly before halftime, but Robbie Gould missed a 50-yard field goal attempt to complete a fairly inept offensive half of football.Taylor appeared to have a left leg injury while his teammates knelt around him on the field. He was in obvious pain as he got on the cart and accepted condolences from players, including Rams receivers Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods.___5:15 p.m.Kansas City is off to a blazing start against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with Tyreek Hill catching seven passes for 203 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter to help the reigning Super Bowl champions open a 17-0 lead.Hill had a 34-yard reception on the first play of the game and a 23-yarder later in the same drive to set up a short field goal. He scored on receptions of 75 and 44 yards from Patrick Mahomes, finishing his second TD with a backflip into the end zone.___4:50 p.m.The Rams and the 49ers have combined for four turnovers in the first quarter at SoFi Stadium, which ended with San Francisco leading Los Angeles 7-3.Jared Goff and Nick Mullens each threw an interception, while Malcolm Brown and Jeff Wilson both lost fumbles. Richard Sherman made the pick for the Niners. This is his first game since the season opener due to a calf injury.Raheem Mostert scored the quarter’s only touchdown in his return from a four-game absence with a sprained ankle.___4:16 p.m.The Minnesota Vikings have taken a dramatic late lead over Carolina with 46 seconds remaining.Kirk Cousins threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Chad Beebe. The extra point was blocked, but an offside penalty gave the Vikings another chance, and the kick gave Minnesota a 28-27 advantage.The Vikings trailed 24-13 in the fourth quarter but have rallied behind two touchdown passes by Cousins.___4 p.m.The Cleveland Browns are trying to hold on late against Jacksonville.James Robinson brought the Jaguars within two with a 4-yard touchdown run, but Cleveland stopped the 2-point conversion attempt and still leads 27-25.The Browns have made this hard on themselves. They were stopped on fourth down while up eight at the Jacksonville 22. Then the Jaguars got a fourth-down conversion of their own thanks to a Cleveland penalty.___3:40 p.m.Kenyan Drake's 1-yard touchdown run with 8:02 remaining has pulled Arizona even with New England at 17.The Cardinals blew an early 10-0 lead in that game, but Arizona went on a 16-play, 80-yard drive to tie it in the fourth quarter.Drake has two touchdown runs.___3:40 p.m.In two games against Miami this season, the New York Jets have yet to reach the end zone.The Dolphins lead 13-3 in the fourth quarter — neither team has scored since halftime. Miami won their first meeting 24-0 last month.The Dolphins are trying to keep pace with AFC East-leading Buffalo, which leads the Los Angeles Chargers 24-17 in the fourth.___3:20 p.m.Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa has a career-best three sacks after hauling down Buffalo’s Josh Allen from behind for a 7-yard loss late in the third quarter.It was Bosa’s second sack of the game against Allen. He also sacked backup Matt Barkley, who came in for one play after Allen limped off in the second quarter.Bosa has upped his career total to 47 1/2 — and moved into fifth on the franchise list, a half-sack ahead of Junior Seau.Buffalo leads 24-14.— John Wawrow reporting from Orchard Park, New York.___3:10 p.m.New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is out of the game against the Bengals with a hamstring injury.Jones went down after completing a third-quarter pass to Wayne Gallman Jr. and was relieved by backup Colt McCoy. Jones returned for two plays on the Giants’ next drive but again was replaced by McCoy. He is questionable to return.The Giants lead the Bengals 13-10 late in the third.___3:05 p.m.Carolina Panthers rookie Jeremy Chinn had not one but two fumble recovery returns for touchdowns in the first 69 seconds of the third quarter at Minnesota.Chinn picked up the ball after Zach Kerr’s sack of Kirk Cousins and took it back 17 yards for the score. Then on the very next play from scrimmage, Vikings running back Dalvin Cook lost the ball at the end of a short carry, a forced fumble credited to Chinn. The second-round draft pick from Southern Illinois emerged from the pile and broke away for a 28-yard touchdown.Cook was hurt during the play and needed assistance to leave the field with an apparent injury to his right leg.According to Pro Football Reference research, Chinn became the first player in the NFL since 1948 to return two fumble recoveries for touchdowns in the same game.— Dave Campbell reporting from Minneapolis___3 p.m.Josh Allen's 3-yard touchdown run put Buffalo ahead 24-6 in the third quarter against the Los Angeles Chargers.Earlier in that game, Cole Beasley became Buffalo’s second receiver in two games to complete a touchdown pass. Taking Allen’s pitch to the right, Beasley faked a run then pulled up and lobbed an easy 20-yard touchdown pass to wide-open rookie Gabriel Davis to put the Bills up 14-6.Two weeks ago, receiver Isaiah McKenzie completed a 12-yard touchdown pass to Allen in a 32-30 loss at Arizona.___2:40 p.m.Indianapolis Colts linebacker Matthew Adams was ejected late in the first half after throwing a punch while playing on the punt coverage unit.That left an already short-handed and frustrated defence with one fewer player against Tennessee.Derrick Henry torched the league’s second-ranked defence in the first half, running 17 times for 140 yards and three scores as the Titans built a 35-14 lead.___2:25 p.m.Baker Mayfield has two touchdown passes — and should have had a third — in the first half against Jacksonville.Mayfield connected with Jarvis Landy and Austin Hooper, ending a three-game drought without a passing score.The Browns lead 17-13 at halftime.Mayfield is 10-of-15 passing for 146 yards, taking advantage of decent weather for the first time in a month. Mayfield threw for 122, 132 and 204 yards the last few weeks while dealing with wind and rain in each game.The Browns are enjoying perfect, late-November weather Sunday.Mayfield, though, should have had another TD against Jacksonville, but inexplicably missed wide-open receiver Rashard Higgins in the end zone on a first-and-goal play from the 5. Cleveland settled for a short field goal.___1:55 p.m.Although Philip Rivers overcame a sore big toe on his right foot to make his 235th consecutive start, he doesn't have his usual offensive line.Centre Ryan Kelly is out with a neck injury, marking the second straight week and third time this season that the Colts didn’t have their five regulars. Then left tackle Anthony Castonzo left the game with a knee injury in the first half and was listed as questionable. Le’Raven Clark replaced Castonzo early in the second quarter.With the top spot in the AFC South on the line, Indianapolis and Tennessee are tied at 14 in the second quarter. Rivers has thrown for 113 yards and a touchdown.___1:45 p.m.Las Vegas Raiders cornerback Damon Arnette is questionable to return against the Atlanta Falcons after a possible concussion on the first play of the game.Arnette was injured in a collision with teammate Cory Littleton while tackling Falcons running back Brian Hill. Arnette was taken to the trainer’s tent before returning to the sideline and eventually being escorted to the locker room.Atlanta has kicked a couple field goals to take a 6-0 lead.___1:25 p.m.The Cincinnati Bengals and New York Giants quickly traded touchdowns in the first quarter.After New York’s Wayne Gallman Jr. plunged in for a 1-yard TD on fourth-and-goal on the opening drive, Brandon Wilson fielded the kickoff in the end zone, found a seam up the middle and outraced the Giants for a 103-yard scoring return.That tied the score at 7. It was Wilson’s second career kickoff return for a touchdown and the longest play in Bengals history.The Giants (3-7) can move into first place in the woeful NFC East with a victory, although Philadelphia (3-6-1) plays Monday night.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLThe Associated Press
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — There was some hope — albeit just a glimmer — coming in for the New York Jets.Sam Darnold was back at quarterback after a two-game absence with a shoulder injury and he was playing with all three of his starting wide receivers for the first time this season. After two promising overall performances in their last two games, maybe this was the week the Jets would finally shed that ugly zero from their win column.And then, thud.The Jets fell to 0-11 with a 20-3 clunker against the Miami Dolphins as Darnold and coach Adam Gase's offence struggled to do much of anything.“We just didn't take any advantage of turnovers, the defence stopping the ball and forcing those guys to punt, especially in the second half,” Gase said. “We had opportunities. We just didn't make the plays we needed to make.”That has been the running theme for the Jets all season and the primary reason they are off to the worst start in franchise history. The 11-game skid is just one shy of tying the streak the Rich Kotite-led squads had over the course of the 1995-96 seasons.“I mean, 0-11, no one at the beginning of the season thought that we’d find ourselves in this position at this point in the season,” Darnold said.The Jets are in real danger of joining the 2008 Detroit Lions and 2017 Cleveland Browns as the only teams in NFL history to go 0-16. It has gotten to the point where many fans are even rooting for that — if only to assure New York of getting the No. 1 overall draft pick, and likely Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.Not that Darnold and his teammates are thinking along those lines.“No,” the quarterback said. “I mean, we’ll find one.”Some thought this could be that chance. And New York started on a positive note by getting a 38-yard field goal by Sergio Castillo on its first possession to take a 3-0 lead.Little did the Jets know that would be it for the the rest of the game.“They're a good defence,” right guard Greg Van Roten said of Miami. “We did not play well as an offence today.”Darnold went 16 of 27 for 197 yards and two interceptions, failing to throw a touchdown pass in his third straight game.“I’ve got to be better,” he said. “I didn’t play well enough to win a ballgame today.”New York managed just 260 yards of total offence, only 10 first downs and 3 for 13 on third down. The Jets were also 0 for 3 in the red zone. Castillo missed a chip-shot 29-yarder before halftime.“Obviously, three points is what we get for that,” Gase said. “We just have to find a way to make the plays when they are there to be made.”And there were some opportunities in this one.Quinnen Williams popped the ball out of Matt Breida’s hands and Harvey Langi recovered to give the Jets the ball at Miami’s 45 with 4:09 remaining in the third quarter.New York went three-and-out.On the Dolphins’ next drive, Jordan Jenkins knocked the ball out of Patrick Laird’s hands and Neville Hewitt scooped it up and returned it to Miami’s 26.New York’s offence stalled again. The Jets went for it on fourth-and-1 from the 17, but Frank Gore was stuffed for a 1-yard loss.“I think our defence played really well today,” Van Roten said. “They gave us a lot of short fields.”There was some question during the game as to whether Gase had reclaimed the offensive play-calling duties after handing them off to co-ordinator Dowell Loggains the past four outings. Gase insisted after the game that was not the case and Loggains was still making the calls, and the coach was only calling some of the 2-minute situations.Regardless, nothing has been working well for the Jets this season.And it has them all in a situation where there could be wholesale changes coming soon, if not after the regular-season finale, including Gase being replaced.“I’m not going to be concerned about anything with that,” Gase said. “I can control one thing and that’s making sure I come to work every day and try to do the best I can with our guys and put them in the right position and try to help them get better.”___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLDennis Waszak Jr., The Associated Press
ÉCONOMIE. Malgré le ralentissement économique occasionné par la pandémie, les entreprises manufacturières qui transforment le métal font encore face à des problèmes de pénurie de main-d'œuvre révèle un sondage. Une problématique bien réelle pour le secteur manufacturier qui a un impact sur les capacités de production des entreprises. Plus spécifiquement, trois quarts de la centaine d’entreprises sondées par les organismes PERFORM, le Comité sectoriel de la main-d'oeuvre dans la fabrication métallique industrielle, le Réseau de la Transformation Métallique du Québec (RTMQ) et Sous-Traitance Industrielle Québec (STIQ) indiquent rencontrer des difficultés de recrutement de main-d'oeuvre et près de la moitié considèrent qu'elles sont plus fréquentes depuis le début de la pandémie. Les soudeurs, soudeurs-assembleurs ainsi que les journaliers sont des perles rares recherchées par près de 50% des répondants. Pour plus des trois quarts d'entre eux, la requalification de travailleurs provenant d'autres secteurs d'activité pourrait être une solution à envisager ainsi que le recours à la formation. Également, la majorité de ces entreprises ont vu leur production diminuer depuis le début de la pandémie. Plus du quart affirment avoir enregistré une baisse de production supérieure à 25 %. Quelques-unes associent cette baisse aux difficultés économiques que traverse actuellement l'industrie aérospatiale alors que d'autres l'attribuent au manque criant de la main-d'oeuvre. Les deux tiers des entreprises déclarent enregistrer une baisse de leur carnet de commandes, dont le tiers l'estime supérieure à 20 %. En contrepartie, 15 % d'entre elles constatent une hausse de leur volume de production, imputée à la forte demande pour les produits du domaine de la construction, ainsi que pour les équipements médicaux et le matériel lié à l'horticulture. Pour faire face à la crise sanitaire, le gouvernement du Québec a mentionné à quelques reprises sa volonté d'encourager la fabrication au Québec. Plus de la moitié des entreprises considèrent avoir la capacité de réaliser ce défi dès maintenant, alors que seulement un tiers estiment que cela sera possible d'ici les cinq prochaines années. Pour ce faire, elles affirment qu'il est impératif de trouver des solutions à la problématique liée à la rareté de la main-d'oeuvre. Pour plusieurs, des investissements en capitaux seront requis afin d'augmenter la productivité de leurs installations en investissant dans des équipements de pointe. Par ailleurs, la pandémie risque de compromettre la pérennité d'environ 30 % des entreprises répondantes. Ce pourcentage est identique à celui obtenu lors d'une enquête similaire menée en mai dernier. Note encourageante, un transfert de 5 % a eu lieu de la catégorie « risque très élevé/élevé » à celle « risque moyennement élevé ». Enfin, les deux tiers des répondants demeurent « optimistes ou très optimistes » en ce qui concerne la relance de l'économie au cours des six prochains mois.

(Bloomberg) -- Treasury Wine Estates Ltd. unveiled an emergency plan to find new markets for its best-known labels including Penfolds after China imposed crippling anti-dumping duties of 169% on its wine over the weekend.In a statement Monday, Melbourne-based Treasury said demand for its wines in China will be “extremely limited” while the new taxes are in place. All told, Treasury needs to find another home for one quarter of its annual global Penfolds volume, and said its plan to diversify away from the world’s biggest buyer of Australian wine will take years to bear fruit.Treasury shares plummeted as much as 12% in Sydney as investors digested the scale of the reorganization facing the wine producer, the latest corporate victim of an escalating political dispute between Australia and China. The duties follow a raft of other measures targeting coal to copper to barley this year.The company said it’s reallocating Penfolds Bin and Icon labels normally destined for China to other luxury markets including Australia, the U.S. and Europe. The benefits of the company’s swiftly drawn-up response are likely to be limited during the current fiscal year ending June 2021, and will yield maximum results over a two- to three-year period, it said.The stock was down 9.6% at 10:12 a.m. local time, cutting the company’s market value to A$6.1 billion ($4.5 billion). That slump followed an 11% tumble on Friday as news of China’s measures was announced.China’s anti-dumping tariffs, which took effect Nov. 28., can potentially stay in place until Aug. 28, 2021. China represented approximately 30% of Treasury’s total earnings last fiscal year. Treasury said it’s also accelerating a drive to produce more wine in other countries such as France and potentially China to avoid the duties.China Targets Australian Wine, Says Ties Have Taken ‘Nosedive’“We are extremely disappointed to find our business, our partners’ businesses and the Australian wine industry in this position,” Chief Executive Officer Tim Ford said.China is the biggest buyer of Australian wine, importing A$1.2 billion in the year through September, according to government marketing body Wine Australia.(Updates with plunging stock in the third paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
Jacy Sheldon scored 20 points, Dorka Juhasz had a double-double and No. 20-ranked Ohio State overwhelmed Duquesne 82-47 in the season opener for both teams on Sunday. The Buckeyes broke it open in the second quarter when they outscored the Dukes 19-7 and held Duquesne to 2-of-15 shooting from the field, including 0 for 8 from beyond the 3-point arc. Ohio State acted as if it was going to run away earlier when Juhasz's layup gave the Buckeyes a 12-4 lead with 4:52 left in the first quarter.
ATLANTA — Jon Gruden felt an apology was appropriate after his Raiders set season highs for penalties, turnovers and sacks allowed.The Las Vegas coach also was looking to quickly erase Sunday's 43-6 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.“I apologize to the Raider nation and really compliment the Falcons,” Gruden said. “They played a hell of a football game and we did not.”It was an especially ugly outing for quarterback Derek Carr, who was sacked five times, threw an interception that was returned by Deion Jones for a touchdown and had three of the team's four lost fumbles.Carr said the team had a poor week of practice following last week's 35-31 loss to Kansas City.“I didn’t think personally we had our best week of practice,” Carr said. “Personally I felt we were a little flat. Clearly that was the case in the game.”Gruden said he's not worried about the ugly loss having a carryover effect with Carr or the team.“This is a tough business,” Gruden said. “He’s been through a lot. He’ll be fine.”The consecutive losses raised concerns the Raiders (6-5) could be bound for a repeat of their poor finish in 2019. One year ago, the Raiders also were 6-4 before finishing 7-9.Carr said he believes this team is different and will regroup. Las Vegas' next game is at the winless New York Jets.“We can grit our teeth like I think we will,” Carr said.Asked about the 2019 finish, Carr said, “It doesn’t feel like that. It’s not the same, for whatever that’s worth, it’s not. I know that feeling. I’ve seen that feeling of frustration.”Gruden said the loss, the worst in his second tenure with the team, was simply the result of Las Vegas playing poorly against a Falcons team that played well.Las Vegas was called for 11 penalties for 141 yards, adding more barriers to success behind the turnovers.“When you turn the ball over five times and have 120 yards of penalties, you have no chance,” Gruden said.The Raiders' problems began on their first possession when Josh Jacobs was stopped by Jones for no gain on a fourth-down run from the Las Vegas 45.On the Raiders' next play, Carr fumbled when hit by Falcons linebacker Foye Oluokun.“It hadn’t felt like this in a while,” Carr said. “It’s a gut punch, for sure. ... We got punched in the face and it just kept happening.”For Las Vegas, one bad play seemed to set the stage for another.“This is one of those where you want to watch the film and correct it and burn the film because that’s not who we are,” Carr said.Carr completed 22 of 34 passes for 215 yards with one interception. Backup Nathan Peterman finished the game.“I didn’t feel like we showed up,” said Hunter Renfrow, who led Las Vegas with seven catches for 73 yards. “It was one thing after another, whether it was a flag or a turnover. We just never got it going. ... It was surprising a little bit because we know we’re better than that.”Jacobs ran for 27 yards on seven carries. The Raiders were successful on only 3 of 12 third-down plays.“Our fans deserve better than what we did today,” Carr said. “Our organization deserves better than what we put out today. That was a bunch of trash.”___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLCharles Odum, The Associated Press
