Julius Peppers has his birthday coming up real soon.This is one most NFL players dont get to celebrate while theyre actually still players.The same day the Green Bay Packers take on the Seattle Seahawks for the NFC championship, this Sunday, Peppers will turn 35. Not even to the midpoint of the average American lifespan, this is a relatively ancient milestone in a game where the typical player is, oh, 26.Peppers, though, has hardly been showing his age. There are a few others wholl be in action this weekend, too, from Kevin Williams to Reggie Wayne to Vince Wilfork, still making meaningful contributions to their teams heading into the conference championship games.Peppers was one of the most dominant players on the field last week in Green Bays win over Dallas, matching the team high with six tackles, drawing a holding penalty and forcing two fumbles.One came during a sack, which the Cowboys recovered. The other might have been the most pivotal play of the game, including the replay reversal of Dez Bryants fourth-down grab near the goal line.DeMarco Murray burst through a big hole that Peppers was being pushed away from, but the eight-time Pro Bowl defensive end escaped his block and knocked the ball out just as Murray approached the secondary with plenty of room to run.The Packers fell on the ball near midfield and drove the other way for a field goal to pull within 14-13. Until that point early in the third quarter, the Cowboys were beginning to pull away.You need all hands on deck right now and everybody making these plays at crucial times, Peppers said.The soft-spoken Peppers, who has played the outside linebacker position this season for the first time in his career, has been just as valuable as an adviser for his younger teammates.Coach Mike McCarthy recently mentioned a one-on-one conversation between Peppers and teammate David Bakhtiari that gave the 23-year-old left tackle some valuable insight about his strengths and weaknesses after the two faced each the previous season when Peppers played for the Chicago Bears.I know David was thankful for that, McCarthy said.The Seahawks have been grateful they took a chance with Williams, who considered retirement after Minnesota let him become a free agent following 11 years with the Vikings.The long-time 3-technique defensive tackle was moved to the nose tackle spot after Brandon Mebane suffered a season-ending injury, and the 34-year-old has been stellar since then. Williams, like Peppers with the Packers, is the oldest player on the team.Hes such a savvy player that it just made sense to him because hes been around so long, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.Thats the great advantage these guys have, of course, that first-hand experience and those tricks of the trade accumulated over the years. Despite the natural decline in strength and speed, age can still give an edge in this sport.Indianapolis, which plays New England this Sunday for the AFC championship, has one-third of the 30-plus-year-old players scattered among the four teams still alive.The Colts have the oldest team in the NFL, with an active roster sporting an average player age of 27 years and 256 days based on the most recent game played by each club, according to STATS research.The Patriots are 14th at 26 years and 303 days, the Seahawks are 22nd at 26 years and 236 days and the Packers are 28th and 26 years and 148 days. Thats the fifth-youngest team in the league.Wayne, who has been picked for six Pro Bowls and tallied six seasons of 1,200 yards receiving or more, has been relatively quiet at age 36 with T.Y. Hilton taking over as Andrew Lucks top option. Wayne has been playing with a torn left triceps.But, like 42-year-old kicker Adam Vinatieri and 34-year-old defensive end Cory Redding, Wayne still has a useful role. Maybe its a key block downfield. Or a first-down catch in the fourth quarter to help the Colts drain the clock, as in the wild-card round game against the Cincinnati Bengals.This is the 12th time in 14 seasons Wayne has been in the playoffs.Lets live in this moment. Lets not worry about what goes on afterward, he said.On the other side of the ball for the Patriots will be Wilfork, the 33-year-old five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle who recovered well from an injury-filled season.I worked my tail off just to get back and play football like I know how to play, he said, and I never take nothing for granted. Mark Recchi Jersey . Mauer drove in two runs before leaving with an injury, Eduardo Nunez homered and the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 10-2 on Tuesday night.

Justin Schultz Jersey . I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end. I did not actually see any of the shots in the game until I got home and watched the video. Kris Letang Jersey . The Reds will host the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight in the opener of a four-game series at Great American Ball Park, and the debut matchup will feature a pair of pitchers whose recent resumes have included a fair number of bases-clearing hits.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalos notoriously long, harsh winters have their advantages as far as Jim Schwartz is concerned. The nasty weather that stretched well into April provided the Bills new defensive co-ordinator an additional excuse to stay indoors and become more familiar with his players and staff. "One of the good things about being here in Buffalo is the weather was so bad that we had plenty of time as coaches to stay together," Schwartz said with a laugh, following a voluntary minicamp practice this week. "When the snow was rolling and it was 5 degrees outside, we were holed up in the room watching all their stuff from last year." It was an invaluable experience for the defensive-minded specialist, who finds himself back in his element in Buffalo a few months after losing his job following a five-year stint as the Detroit Lions head coach. "You can spin coaching changes any way you want. The one thing I would say is the players do have a clean slate," Schwartz said. "They have to prove themselves. And Im in the same boat. Ive got to prove myself all over again. Its exciting. Thatll bring out the best in players. Itll bring out the best in coaches." Filling the vacancy after Mike Pettine left to take over the Cleveland Browns, Schwartz inherits a Bills defence that began shedding its once-porous and passive reputation by emerging as the teams strength last season. While Buffalo (6-10) struggled on offence in large part because of rookie quarterback EJ Manuels inconsistencies and injuries, the defence finished 10th in the NFL in yards allowed -- the units best ranking in nine years. The Bills also finished second in the league with 23 interceptions and a franchise-record 57 sacks. And they had four defenders earn Pro Bowl selections, including tackle Marcell Dareus, who was added as an injury replacement. The only area of concern was Buffalos inability to stop the run. The BBills gave up 150 or more yards rushing six times, and finished 28th in allowing an average 129 net yards rushing per game.dddddddddddd Schwartz has a strong track record in devising schemes to stop the run. During his eight seasons as Tennessees defensive co-ordinator, the Titans finished sixth or better in rushing yards allowed six times from 2001-08. Its on Schwartz to build on that success with a unit that features a few new wrinkles at linebacker, where the team added Brandon Spikes and Keith Rivers in free agency, and was unable to re-sign three-time Pro Bowl safety Jairus Byrd. Schwartz is Buffalos fourth defensive co-ordinator in four seasons. He doesnt anticipate a difficult transition, even though hes making the switch to a 4-3 style of defence, and his philosophy is considered less aggressive than Pettines pressure-the-passer approach. Schwartz is keeping much of the same play-calling terminology. And he said the switch to four linemen and three linebackers shouldnt be regarded as significant, because his and Pettines defences share similar elements. Veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams doesnt foresee much change in the Bills approach. "No, were not going to be read-and-react. Were going to attack guys," Williams said. "Now, if we do it with four rushers, five rushers or six, thatll have to be game-planned. But were going to be on the move. And were going to attack." Spikes liked what hes seen after two weeks of minicamp practices. "Weve still got a long way to go, but if we can take these necessary steps, I think we can be great this season and shock the world," said Spikes, who was signed in part because of his reputation as a run-stuffer during his first four seasons in New England. "I take that personally. If you can stop the run, you can make them one-dimensional," Spikes said. "I think this season therell be some eye-openers."
