GREEN BAY, Wis. Cody Latimer Jersey . - The Seahawks Marshawn Lynch and the Packers Eddie Lacy are known for being punishing runners. Their conduct in front of the cameras couldnt be any different. Lynch isnt a talker, to put it mildly. The affable Lacy can charm reporters and teammates with an easygoing personality. Trying to tackle Lynch and Lacy wont be easy for the defences when Green Bay visits Seattle on Sunday in the NFC title game. What are they like with the ball? Lacy will take that question. I mean personally, I dont know him, I never met him or anything, he said. But were both physical backs. We dont care whos in front of us. When you come to hit us, youve got to come ... youve got to try your hardest to get us down. Sure-handed tackles become of utmost importance. Defenders will have to swarm to the ball to prevent the runner from bouncing off a tackle and rumbling for extra yards. It is Lynchs specialty. Hes a dog — his whole demeanour, Seattle safety Earl Thomas said. Hes a man amongst boys out there. One who had his fourth straight season of at least 1,200 yards rushing. Lynch finished the regular season with 1,306 yards on 280 carries and 13 scores. The Seahawks led the league in averaging 172.6 yards rushing per game, with mobile quarterback Russell Wilson also posing a threat on the ground. Were kind of just reaping the benefits of the philosophy but then how the players go out and execute it, Seahawks offensive co-ordinator Darrell Bevell said. We got as good of guy youd ever want to hand it to with handing it to Marshawn. Packers linebacker Julius Peppers, a 13-year veteran, described Lynch as one of the hardest runners I think in football in my opinion. Very physical and violent runner. It sounds a lot like trying to tackle Lacy. Those guys are similar in the sense that you have to have multiple defenders trying to get those guys down, Peppers said. Whereas Lynch and Wilson share top billing in the Seattle attack, Lacy and his production can get overshadowed by Aaron Rodgers. The quarterback is having an MVP-calibre year, even after being slowed by a strained left calf. The injury makes Lacy an even more important piece to Green Bays offence. As evidence, Lacy was added to the injury report as a precaution on Thursday as a limited participant because of a sore knee. I was just being conservative, so I pulled him in about the middle of practice, coach Mike McCarthy said on Thursday. I think Eddie will be ready to go on Sunday. Just the coach was nervous, all right? The running game stalled in a 1-2 start, when Green Bay played Seattle, the New York Jets and Detroit to open the season — three of the top defences against the run in the league. The Packers were also a bit more conservative early on in giving Lacy carries, while putting added emphasis on catching passes out of the backfield. He has turned into Green Bays third-leading receiver as a check-down threat for Rodgers, while the production on the ground has steadily increased behind an effective offensive line. Lacy finished with 1,139 yards on 246 carries with nine touchdowns. Counting last weeks playoff win against Detroit, Lacy is averaging 99 yards in his past seven games. His ability to be a three-down player is of primary importance to us, McCarthy said. Hes breaking tackles, but were going against an excellent tackling defence, so this will be a big challenge. The Seahawks figured out Lacy in the 36-16 win over Green Bay in the league opener in Seattle. Lacy was held to 12 carries for 34 yards before leaving the game with a concussion following a hit from safety Kam Chancellor. At least thats how it was reported in injury report. Uh I remember it wasnt a concussion. It was got rung my bell, Lacy said with a laugh to a gaggle of reporters. So I ran into Kam! Thats what happened. Notes: Rodgers was limited in practice for a second straight day. Went through pass under pressure and went through two team periods. So getting ready to play, McCarthy said. ... The Packers are travelling to Seattle on Friday. McCarthy said hes still looking for an indoor facility in the Seattle area for practice on Saturday, but itll be as close as we can get it to our normal Saturday practice. Gary Zimmerman Jersey . The club says its first-choice centre back "underwent medical tests on Wednesday morning" which confirmed he has injured his right hamstring. The injury was caused in the second minute of Tuesdays 4-1 league win over Real Sociedad in the Camp Nou when teammate Sergio Busquets accidentally struck Mascherano just above the knee with an outstretched boot. Denver Broncos Jerseys . Gomes drove in all three runs, including a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning, and Cleveland rallied for a 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.NEW YORK -- Brian McCann hit a go-ahead, two-run homer and later added a bases-loaded triple to help the New York Yankees to a 7-3 win over the first-place Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night. The Yankees beat Mark Buehrle for the ninth straight time and handed the Blue Jays their 15th loss in a row in the Bronx. Rookie Chase Whitley (3-0) remained unbeaten in seven starts since making his big league debut this season. Buehrle (10-4) was trying to tie Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka for the most wins in the majors. He gave up three runs and six hits in six innings and lost his third straight start overall. Buehrle is 1-11 lifetime against the Yankees, with his lone win coming in 2004 while with the Chicago White Sox. McCann tied his career high with five RBIs. Torontos Jose Bautista had an RBI double in the eighth for his 1,000th career hit. The Yankees have taken the first two in a three-game series against Toronto. McCanns third big league triple, and first since 2009 with Atlanta, came off left-hander Brett Cecil, who had been brought in to face pinch-hitter Ichiro Suzuki with the Blue Jays down 3-2 in the seventh. Cecil walked Suzuki with the bases loaded to force in a run before McCann put the game safely out of reach. McCann was hitting .174 for June before his homer in the fourth, which was measured at 348 feet -- not far enough to clear most fences in the majors. He helped the Yankees respond after the Blue Jays took a 2-1 lead on two-out RBI sinngles by Colby Rasmus and Dioner Navarro in the top half. Bennie Fowler Jersey. Alfonso Sorianos first-inning single put the Yankees on the board. Whitley gave up two runs and five hits in five innings. He walked Melky Cabrera in the fifth, ending his streak of starts without a walk at three. His last walk was May 26 against the Cardinals. NOTES: Derek Jeter saw six pitches in his first four at-bats, going 0 for 4 before he popped up a bunt attempt in the seventh. He hit a double off the wall in the eighth, giving him 533, one behind Lou Gehrig as the Yankees leader. . Brett Gardner singled his first four times for the Yankees before a lineout in the eighth. .

The series ends Thursday night, with Yankees RHP David Phelps (2-4) set to face righty Drew Hutchison (5-4). ...
