This is a trip that could go a long way to define the season for the Carolina Panthers.The Oakland Raiders are hoping theyre recovered enough from their latest voyage to be able to continue their winning ways.The teams meet Sunday at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.Were talking about recovering from the trip, Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said. Its all about whats next for us and right now its the Carolina Panthers. ... Busy turning the page to the Carolina Panthers.The Raiders, who are the leaders in the AFC West, are coming off Monday nights victory against the Houston Texans in Mexico City.The Panthers have packed up for the long haul. Theyre staying on the West Coast after this game to take on the Seattle Seahawks the following week.It shapes up as a crucial time for the reigning NFC champions.Were going there for two reasons and two reasons only, Carolina head coach Ron Rivera said, offering a twist on the one-game-at-a-time mantra. Theyre both important. Each game has (its) own individual meaning.Rivera, though, said the focus is clearly on the Raiders as the Panthers (4-6) embark on this trip. Theyll practice at San Jose State in between the games.The Panthers are somewhat wounded, particularly with linebacker Luke Kuechly ruled out after entering the concussion protocol from the Nov. 17 game against New Orleans.Carolina was fortunate to have extra time to prepare because of that Thursday night game. The injury report grew considerably, especially with defensive end Mario Addison and center Ryan Kalil exiting and also ruled out.Hopefully they can come back and we can make a push, Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert said.The Panthers, whove won three of their past four games, are in a wait-and-see situation regarding the linebacking because Kuechlys normal backup is A.J. Klein, who missed the most recent game because of a concussion.The Raiders (8-2) appear in much better position, if nothing else theyre in a more enviable spot in the standings. But winning the division remains a priority and theres lots of work to be done regarding that mission.It still begins with winning the division, Del Rio said. Its the surest way to get a spot in that playoff tournament.With accolades and attention starting to fall on the Raiders, theyre intent on maintaining the right approach.You set goals and you want to reach certain things, quarterback Derek Carr said. Everybody expects great things and when gd things come our way you have to know how to be humble.Anytime you have 10 games and you have eight wins, were thankful for that. If we dont win another one, its not going to mean anything. Our focus right now is on beating Carolina.Del Rio, who was the defensive crdinator for the Panthers in 2002, said the Raiders have developed gd tendencies during their four-game winning streak. He said there are challenges the team must encounter in the aftermath of the out-of-country trip and dealing with a shortened week of preparation.The seasons foundation is something hes counting on.As you have success and build on that and have a reference point to go back on, Del Rio said. I think our guys have embraced the idea of competing for the full 60 minutes. Weve found ways to win, but it has been different ways each week.While Carr has become a focal point for Oaklands offense, the team has thrived on balance and versatility. Thats something the Raiders figure can work to their advantage.To know that we can win a ftball game either way, Carr said. We can run the ftball or throw the ftball. Either way, Im all for it as long as we keep on winning.The Panthers have been shoddy in converting scoring chances into touchdowns and quarterback Cam Newtons inconsistency has created concerns. Turnovers and red-zone shortcomings have been glaring at times.We will make plays and hopefully we will make enough to win ftball games, Rivera said.Rivera has put a positive spin on the trips potential even though it means facing a pair of divisional leaders in consecutive weeks. From an internal standpoint, there are gains to be made for the Panthers.Its an opportunity for those guys to do some bonding, Rivera said. Hopefully, it will be a gd opportunity for our guys.This will be only the sixth meeting between the Panthers and Raiders, and the first in Oakland since 2008. The Panthers won the 2012 meeting to forge a 3-2 series lead. Corey Dickerson Pirates Jersey .

The distance between Paris and Pune might well be over 7000 kms by a conservative estimate, but Portugals maiden Euro triumph on Sunday night has inspired Indian Super League (ISL) club FC Pune City, and specifically, the central defender and former India international Gouramangi Singh.?I think we will take the philosophy of the Portugal coach (Fernando Santos) forward, Gouramangi told ESPN. He said they kept telling him his team was playing ugly and didnt deserve to win. We played bad last year. If we can somehow keep it together, take it one game at a time, and win ISL 3, then even we dont mind.Gouramangi is not the only Pune City player lking to make amends for 2015, when the team led the points table around the halfway stage, but then saw their form dip dramatically, and wound up missing the playoffs.Midfielder and reigning Indian player of the year Eugeneson Lyngdoh believes Pune will benefit from the expertise of their new coach Antonio Lopez Habas, who had guided Atletico de Kolkata to the title in 2014 and the semi-finals last year.I think Habas will employ a gd mixture of defence and attack, as he showed in the first two seasons in the ISL, Lyngdoh said, adding that Portugals victory at the Euros -- similar to Leicester Citys maiden Premier League win and Chiles successive Copa America wins -- cannot be dismissed as underdog stories alone.All these teams were composed and did exactly what they were supposed to do. They were tactically sound and whatever they did on the training grounds came gd in the matches. With the players that we have, we t can execute our plans. We just want to stay focused annd not wander away half-way like we did last season.ddddddddddddThat dip in form left even opposition players confused, including former Delhi Dynamos defender Zodingliana Ralte, or Adinga as he is called. Adinga will be plying his trade in Pune this season, and is eager to perform well to inspire more ftballers from his native state Mizoram.Adinga, who started his career at central midfield, was employed as a left-back and came in for high praise from marquee player-manager Roberto Carlos as well as John Arne Riise. Incidentally, Adinga is a Manchester United fan and was rting for Portugal last night. He was delighted they won because they worked hard and fully deserved it.A first timer in this ISL will be goalkeeper Vishal Kaith, who made his Indian ftball debut with Shillong Lajong FC in the Federation Cup of 2014-15 while still only 18, having come through the ranks of state, national and international competitions at the age-group levels.Kaith, who admires compatriot Amrinder Singh and Edel Apoula Bete, the only goalkeeper with two ISL trophies against his name, never believed even a year ago that he would get a chance to rub shoulders with the legends of the game in the ISL. However, the young mans philosophy seems to be something that Portugals experienced coach would approve of.Simple game khelna hai. Basics pe hi stick karna hai. Aur iss season kuch karke dikhana hai. Bas. (I have to play a simple game, sticking to the basics. I just want to do well this season. Thats it). ' ' '
