JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- After another subpar performance by quarterback Blake Bortles and receiver Allen Robinson, the Jacksonville Jaguars put them in a room so they could get on the same page.It was a clear reaction to Robinsons increased aggravation, Bortles continued inaccuracy and a seven-game losing streak that mostly can be blamed on the teams offensive failures.I think both of them are frustrated, obviously, because theyre not getting the numbers that they had last year and obviously the wins arent coming, so I think they feel that they both can help this team so much, but they have to get on the same page, offensive coordinator Nate Hackett said Thursday.I think its one of those things is the more they talk, the more theyre together. I think its just going to keep their relationship going and allow them to get to where they were last year.Bortles threw 35 touchdown passes in 2015, 14 of them to Robinson.Bortles set several team records and looked like a franchise quarterback. Robinson was his go-to guy, finishing with 1,400 yards and making the Pro Bowl in his second season.Its been a struggle since.Bortles has clearly regressed , his sloppy mechanics leading to poor footwork and bad throws weekly. He has 20 touchdowns and a league-high 19 turnovers for the Jaguars (2-10), who host the Minnesota Vikings (6-6) on Sunday.Robinson has 56 receptions for 622 yards and six scores. But he has eight catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in the past three games, and the Jaguars have gone more than a month without a play gaining at least 30 yards.A second-round draft pick from Penn State in 2014, Robinson averaged 17.5 yards a catch last season and had 13 receptions of at least 30 yards. Hes averaging 11.1 yards a catch this season and has just one reception of at least 30 yards.Robinsons dissatisfaction became obvious in a 20-10 loss at Denver on Sunday. He ripped off his helmet and starting yelling at an official after a failed fourth down conversion early in the fourth quarter.Robinson thought he was interfered with on the play, but no flags were thrown.Robinson vented after the game, too, mocking the amazing officiating and adding that hes never been this frustrated playing the game of football in my life.A day later, Robinson and Bortles were hashing out their problems with Hackett.Its hard because its frustrating, Bortles said. I know he gets unbelievably frustrated with everything going on as am I.Both of us have a respect for each other and we both have rooted for each other and I think are on the same page, but I think there comes a time and a point where we need to sit down and just talk about it. And not in a negative way at all, lets just find out a way to get on the same page so we can make plays.Robinson declined to discuss specifics of the meeting Thursday, saying thats between me, Blake and Nate.Theres surely no one person to blame for Jacksonvilles yearlong offensive woes. No doubt, Bortles has been the main issue.But coach Gus Bradley fired offensive coordinator Greg Olson in late October because he was unhappy with the teams commitment to the run game, and Robinson has bobbled three passes that resulted in interceptions.We want those connections to happen and I think weve just got to continue to work and just continue to play, Hackett said.I think both of them press because they care so much. Its almost like their biggest weakness. They care so much and they want to be good so bad and they just want to take it to another level that its almost sometimes they press a little too much instead of just playing and going out there and doing what they both do well.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Robert Hagg Jersey .

Wayne Simmonds Jersey .Y. - New York City has been selected to host the NBA All-Star weekend in 2015, with the game played at Madison Square Garden and the slam dunk contest and other skills events held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Danny Duffy almost never missed a game when he was recovering from Tommy John surgery. Sometimes hed be watching on TV from the teams spring training complex in Arizona. Other times, hed be watching on television between rehab starts at some minor league outpost. He finally made his return on Wednesday night and laboured through 3 2-3 innings against the Minnesota Twins. He left with the Royals trailing by a run, but this time had a front-row seat to watch as his scrappy bunch of teammates clawed their way back for a 5-2 victory. The Royals bullpen held the Twins off the scoreboard the final 5 1-3 innings. "Im not satisfied with this at all. It wasnt where I wanted to be today," Duffy said, "but we gutted it out, we got the win and the bullpen was amazing." Duffy was electric for as long as he was in the game. He struck out seven with an overpowering fastball that at times reached 97 mph, and then used his changeup to keep the Twins off balance. But he struggled through the same command issues that often plagued him prior to his injury, and needed 93 pitches to last as long as he did. "When he got hurt, he was still learning how to harness his adrenaline," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "Once he learns how to harness his adrenaline, hes going to be a pretty nice pitcher." Once Duffy left the game, Louis Coleman (2-0) and three more Kansas City relievers managed to navigate the next 4 1-3 innings. All-Star closer Greg Holland worked around a single by pinch-hitter Joe Mauer in the ninth to wrap up his 30th save and the series win. "We feel really comfortable when we give them the lead," first baseman Eric Hosmer said, "and any time we give them insurance runs, we feel really good about them closing it out." Alex Gordon homered off Samuel Deduno (7-5) to tie the game once Duffy left. Alcides Escobar hit a go-ahead single later in the fourth, Lorenzo Cain hit an RBI single in the fifth, and Gordon drove in another run in the seventh with the 200th double of his career. Deduno, who hadnt lost in his last four starts, allowed four runs on 12 hits in 5 2-3 innings. He didnt walk a batter for the first time this season. "He was battling pretty hard and they were shooting balls the other way on him," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He battled through the besst he could.dddddddddddd" Minnesota made sure that Duffy would work hard in his first time on a big league mound since May 2012. Brian Dozier, whose leadoff homer set the tone in a 7-0 win Tuesday night, opened the game with a triple off the young left-hander. Brian Colabello worked a two-out walk before Ryan Doumit delivered an RBI single to give the Twins a 1-0 lead. Doumit would leave the game in the fourth inning after feeling nauseous, and the Twins said afterward that he would likely land on the seven-day concussion list. "I felt like mentally in a fog. I was nauseous. I was dizzy," the catcher said. "If you cant concentrate on the pitches you are calling, you shouldnt be back there." The Royals answered in the third when Brett Hayes, whos filling in at catcher while Salvador Perez is out with his own concussion, lined a double off the third-base bag. Deduno recovered to retire the next two Royals, but Escobar drove in Hayes with a tying single. The Twins pulled back ahead in the fourth on Doziers two-out double, but Gordon answered again in the bottom half when he snapped a 1-for-23 skid with his homer. Escobars run-scoring single later in the inning gave the Royals the lead for good. Cains RBI single and Gordons run-scoring double took some of the pressure off the Royals bullpen, which entered the game with the best ERA in the American League. Coleman retired five batters to run his streak of scoreless innings to 16 1-3, and Tim Collins struck out the only three he faced. Aaron Crow escaped a jam of his own creation in the seventh, and Kelvin Herrera left runners on second and third to end the eighth. Holland ensured there would be little drama in the ninth. "We got into the fourth inning and looking at those guys down there, I felt really good about protecting a one-run lead," Yost said. "It wasnt pretty at times but they got it done."
