JACKSONVILLE http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/anthony-zettel-jersey , Fla. (AP)The old-school Jacksonville Jaguars are going to look like they play in 2018.The Jaguars unveiled new uniforms and helmets Thursday, switching to a ”no-nonsense” style that matches the team’s blue-collar identity.The franchise showed off their new duds at the team’s annual state of the franchise presentation.”True to our current identity and what we want to represent for years to come, our new uniforms are no-nonsense, all business and unmistakably Jaguars,” team owner Shad Khan said.The ”official” unveiling actually came a day after workers at Jacksonville International Airport inadvertently put up life-size posters of current players wearing the uniforms.”Obviously that was on (Tom) Coughlin time,” said team president Mark Lamping, referring to Coughlin’s longtime rule that being on time means being early.”Your kids get up on Christmas morning and they see those gifts under the tree, you’re as excited and surprised as the kids, right?” Lamping added. ”We had a lot of people work hard on the uniform unveiling, so channel your young child. We know what’s coming, but let’s act surprised and excited.”The Nike Vapor Untouchable uniforms feature much cleaner lines, which some might consider plain. They have three jersey and pants options – black, white and teal. The all-teal combination http://www.detroitlionsteamonline.com/jahlani-tavai-jersey , including matching socks, can only be worn during Thursday night games.The high-gloss black helmets replace the two-tone widely mocked the past five years.”I know the two-tone helmets weren’t popular,” said Khan, who admittedly failed when he opted for an ”edgy” helmet design in 2013.The 71-year-old Coughlin, the team’s executive vice president for football operations, played a leading role in designing the new, throwback look. He said he wanted to see a return to tradition.”To a player, the uniform means everything,” Coughlin said. ”When you put that uniform on, you not only represent your franchise, your team, your community. You represent your family. You represent your parents, your wife http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/kahale-warring-jersey , your children, everything packed into one because your name is on the back of that uniform.”The new appearance seems to be a perfect fit for Jacksonville’s on-field style. The Jaguars want to run the ball and play solid defense, a combination that helped the team reach the AFC championship game last season for the first time since 2000.”That’s spot on,” Khan said. ”They’re classic. They’re simple. They’re powerful. They’re agile. They’re winning. … Our new uniforms are no-nonsense, all business and unmistakably Jaguars.”Here are some other things to know about the team’s state of the franchise address:-The Jaguars will be the first team in the NFL to have a dog park inside the stadium. The 2,000-square-foot area, operated by Pet Paradise, will open this fall in the south end zone and will feature artificial turf, a pool and palm trees. Fans can leave their dogs there and go watch the game or stay in the park with their dogs.-The Jaguars have partnered with Grunt Style apparel brand to create a military-themed interactive area in the north end zone.-There will be a Spanish-language broadcast of all Jaguars games beginning this fall through a partnership with Tico Sports. The Jaguars are trying to tap into a growing Hispanic population in the area.-Revenue from playing in London accounted for 11 percent of the team’s local revenue in 2017, making the annual overseas trip a critical aspect of the team’s financial viability.— WASHINGTON — The Washington Nationals will look to continue their domination of the Baltimore Orioles when they play the penultimate game of this season’s Beltway Series Wednesday night at Nationals Park.
Trea Turner went 4-for-4 with a homer, and Anthony Rendon drove in three runs as the Nationals rallied for a 9-7 win on Tuesday night. Washington has won six straight over Baltimore, including all four games this season.
Washington trailed 4-1 entering the fifth inning. Baltimore loaded the bases but scored only one run, that coming on Manny Machado’s double-play grounder. The Nationals loaded the bases and tied it with a four-run fifth and then won it with four in the seventh as Rendon’s two-run double put them ahead.
“This team is starting to become relentless and when you start doing that you put up runs late and that’s a good sign http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/bobby-okereke-jersey ,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said after his team collected 14 hits. “They kept pounding and pounding and pounding, had a couple of big innings there and scored some runs.”
Adam Eaton had two hits and two RBIs for the Nationals (39-32), who have outscored the Orioles by a combined 20-9.
Turner, moved down to the sixth spot in the lineup Tuesday night, homered in the second inning, added a pair of singles and ended his night with a double in the seventh.
“I feel like I’ve been getting decent pitches to hit, just fouling them off or missing them and today it kind of clicked for me,” he said. “I’ve been trying to make some adjustments and felt better.”
Baltimore (20-51) got two-run homers from Jace Peterson and Trey Mancini, and a solo shot from Joey Rickard.
“There were a lot of good at-bats and walks and we didn’t get too overanxious against their first pitcher, but we just weren’t able to stem the tide,” manager Buck Showalter said after the Orioles lost for the 17th time in 20 games.
Washington’s Gio Gonzalez (6-3, 3.01 ERA) opposes Andrew Cashner (2-8, 4.98) in the middle game of the three-game set.
In his last start, he allowed five runs on nine hits over six-plus innings in a loss to Toronto. He allowed two home runs after giving up just five in his previous 13 starts this season.
Gonzalez is 2-6 with a 3.90 ERA in 11 career starts versus the Orioles, though he pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a 6-0 win over Baltimore on May 28.
Manny Machado is 5-for-16 against Gonzalez, while Adam Jones is 7-for-32 and Mark Trumbo 4-for-20.
Cashner will be activated off the disabled list after missing 10 days due to lower back soreness. The 31-year-old right-hander will be looking to end a personal three-game losing streak, during which the Orioles have scored a total of three runs.
Last time out, Cashner gave up three runs on nine hits over six innings in a 5-1 loss at Toronto.
Cashner is 3-4 with a 4.04 ERA in 13 career games (eight starts) versus Washington.
Daniel Murphy is 6-for-12 against Cashner, Bryce Harper is 5-for-11, and Anthony Rendon is 5-for-12 with a homer.
