MONTREAL -- The odds still weigh heavily against them, but the Winnipeg Blue Bombers playoff hopes are not dead yet. Max Hall picked up his first CFL win as a starting quarterback and Will Ford caught a touchdown pass and ran in another as the Bombers staved off elimination with a 34-27 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Monday afternoon. Winnipegs second win in Montreal in 2013 gave them the three-game season series between the clubs by a 2-1 margin, but they will need to win their final three regular season games and have the Alouettes lose their last three to grab the final East Division playoff spot. "So youre telling me theres a chance right?" said Hall. "So weve just got to keep playing. All we can control is winning next week (at home Saturday against Toronto) and, if we can do that, well still have a chance." Clarence Denmark and backup quarterback Jason Boltus also had TDs and Sandro DeAngelis kicked two field goals for Winnipeg (3-12), which ended a four-game losing streak. S.J. Green and Tyrell Sutton scored and Sean Whyte had four boots for Montreal (6-9), which ended a two-game winning run and wasted a chance to clinch a playoff berth. The Alouettes turned the ball over seven times, including three interceptions thrown by starter Josh Neiswander and one by backup Troy Smith. "Anything weve improved on, from turnovers to penalties, we did none of today," said Montreal coach and general manager Jim Popp. "Theres no excuse. We beat ourselves. Youve got to give (Winnipeg) credit. They didnt have to come here and play the way they did, but we gave them a lot, too." The third-place Alouettes can still finish second in the division and host a playoff game as they head into back-to-back games with their second-place Hamilton, who they face Sunday at home. Hall, starting a fourth straight game, completed 16 passes for 223 yards. The Bombers ended a seven-game run with fewer than 300 yards on offence by putting up 309. "Im not going to lie -- that feels really good," said Hall. "I was proud of our guys, with our backs against the wall, to hang in there and get a win. It says a lot about our team going forward." It was a messy, flag-filled game played mostly on a wet field before 22,853 at Percival Molson Stadium. And it featured four lead changes. The game turned midway through the fourth quarter with Montreal ahead 26-24 when Hall made the same handoff to Ford on successive plays. The first gained eight yards and the second got 69 as Ford broke clear but was caught by Chip Cox on the one-yard line. Ford then ran in for the score. Before that, the Bombers got little on the ground against the CFLs best run defence. "Thats a really good defence," said Hall. "We felt we had a few checks at the line we could hit them with. Obviously, we did a good job executing it and Will found the hole and got loose. That long run he had won the game for us, bottom line." The Alouettes marched back late in the game, but Whytes bid to go 5 for 5 in field goals failed when his 33-yard attempt sailed wide. In the first quarter, White fumbled the snap on a punt attempt to give Winnipeg the ball on the 17. On the next play, Hall hit Ford with a TD pass. Desia Dunn picked off a Neiswander pass on Montreals first possession to set up a DeAngelis boot. Troy Smith replaced Neiswander in the second quarter and led a 60-yard TD drive capped by a 12-yard toss to Green. But Smith was picked off on his next series, and Neiswander went back in. After Mike Edem recovered a Hall fumble, Neiswander hit Duron Carter with a 40-toss to the Winnipeg one, where Sutton ran it in for a touchdown. A partially-blocked punt gave Montreal the ball on the Bombers 12 and Whyte was good on the field goal, but Winnipeg marched back for Hall to connect on a 40-yard TD pass to Denmark to tie the score at 17-17 with nine seconds left in the first half. Between two third-quarter field goals for Montreal, Denmark made a tough 34-yard catch in traffic that led to a one-yard TD plunge by Boltus. Denmark ended the day with five catches for 105 yards. "Dennys just a fast guy and hes proven he can be a reliable guy," said Hall. "On the touchdown pass, he was really just a backside post clear-out. Weve never thrown that ball in practice or anything. But, before that play, something told me we might have a chance." Neiswander has been sharp in his last three outings, but he completed fewer than half his attempts while putting up 199 yards. Smith went 3 for 6 for 35 yards and a touchdown. Popp will need to decide whether to stick with Neiswander or go back to rookie Tanner Marsh, who has returned from a sprained thumb and dressed as the third quarterback. Or try giving Smith a start. The loss left the Alouettes 3-5 at home, so they will have a losing record on home turf for the first time since the team returned to Montreal in 1996. "The reality is, there are three games left and if we win out, well be second in our division and host a playoff game -- its right there," said Popp. "We know we can beat anybody in the league, but we cant play down. Were better than our record, but we didnt play that way. Today we played to our record and maybe lower. Weve got to do a better job." Air Max 97 Mens Australia .

Certainly not Monday night. George Hill took care of the early work, scoring a season-high 26 points, and Paul George closed it out by scoring 11 of his 26 points during a decisive second-half stretch that finally allowed Indiana to pull away from Minnesota 98-84 for yet another win. Nike Air Max Cheap Wholesale . It was well worth the wait. Manning and the Denver Broncos waited eight long months, then another 33 minutes to get the season started because of a lightning storm. Nike Air Max 93 Australia . By then it was clear: The 76ers were going to win for the first time in two months, and they were going to do it with ease. The 76ers snapped their NBA record-tying, 26-game losing streak, routing the Detroit Pistons 123-98 on Saturday night to avoid establishing the longest skid in U. MARTINSVILLE, Va. -- Denny Hamlin promised he would be a factor in Sundays NASCAR race at Martinsville Speedway, and he went out and proved it by leading a parade of drivers who smashed the track qualifying record. Hamlin turned a lap at 99.595 mph around the 0.526-mile oval, the oldest and shortest in the Sprint Cup Series. Its his 17th career pole, third at Martinsville and career-best fifth this season. "I knew we were going to be pretty strong," Hamlin said about the track where hes won four times. "I knew we had a shot at the pole and, beyond that, I think our car is pretty good in race trim as well." Hamlin later also won the pole for Saturdays truck race, where hell seek his third straight victory at the track. Johnson, a five-time champion for Hendrick Motorsports, will start the race with a four-point lead over Matt Kenseth in the championship, and surrounded by Kenseth and his teammates -- Hamlin and Kyle Busch. "No," Johnson said when asked if being surrounded made him nervous. "Maybe I should be, but not as of now. We will all race hard Im sure. We have all been, at least so far, have been a lot of situations with each driver and been able to race hard and take it right to the line, but not cross it.dddddddddddd" Johnson and Busch actually tied in qualifying at 99.344 mph, but Johnson was awarded the second spot based on the owner points tiebreaker, moving Busch to the third spot with Kenseth alongside. Johnson, who has won eight times at Martinsville, including the last two, said his team struggled for much of the day in practice, but "we found some direction there at the end and made some adjustments." The top 10 in the starting grid features half of the top 10 in points with just four events to go. Busch and Kevin Harvick (starting 10th) are third, 26 back, and Jeff Gordon (9th) is fifth, 34 back. Hamlin, who is in danger of seeing his streak of seasons with a victory end at seven if he cant claim one of the final races, said he will race hard for at victory, and to be a good teammate. "I think both my teammates and the guys who are around will know that Im racing for a race win and thats it," Hamlin said. "Ill take more risks, obviously, when racing for a win. I will be a lot more aggressive with a non-teammate than I will with a teammate, so that part of it is a little bit different, but that would be the only way I dont givbe 100 per cent racing for a win."
