. Rosberg, a 29-year-old German, has been with Mercedes since the start of the 2010 season. All six of his grand prix wins and eight pole positions in F1 have come with the team. Rosberg is the current leader in the world championship point standings. He has scored three victories and four poles this season. "As a German, the heritage of Mercedes-Benz is very special for me, and I am proud to be able to represent the best car brand around the world," Rosberg said in a team statement. "It has been a difficult road to get to where we are now, but everybody kept believing. And thanks to the fantastic support from Mercedes-Benz, we are now leading the way in F1. "There has been big progress during the past year, building up our structure, management and capability for the future. We have an awesome team, and I am confident that we have the right people in place at every level. Im looking forward to the next years together, when we will keep pushing to win even more races and hopefully championships." Rosbergs contract extension comes before his home grand prix in Germany this weekend. Sundays 67-lap German Grand Prix is being held in Hockenheim. Rosberg enters this race with just a four-point advantage over second-place and teammate Lewis Hamilton, who won the British Grand Prix last week. "With his performances in 2014, Nico has demonstrated to the outside world what we knew already in the team - that he is one of the very top drivers in Formula One," Toto Wolff, head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport, said. "This new contract brings us important stability and continuity for the future and I am delighted to be able to make the announcement in time for the home race of Mercedes-Benz and Nico in Hockenheim."

. Henry, who missed three games with a knee injury, was charged with a handball in the penalty area in the 82nd minute as he went to block a strike from Patrick Mullins. On the ensuing penalty kick, Lee Nguyen picked up his fourth goal of the season, giving the Revolution a 2-1 win Saturday afternoon.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills lost more than their preseason finale Thursday night, when rookie receiver Sammy Watkins did not return after aggravating a rib injury. The Detroit Lions, on the other hand, have several big decisions to make before establishing their 53-player regular-season roster following a 23-0 win over the Bills. With time running out in the first half and perhaps their tenure in Detroit, third-string quarterback Kellen Moore and backup receiver Corey Fuller made one last case to show they deserve to make the final cut before Saturday. Moore found time in the pocket to hit Fuller on a perfectly placed 25-yard touchdown pass over the middle with 9 seconds left in the second quarter to put the Lions ahead 17-0. "It was a great ball, just needled it right through and I just had to run underneath it," said Fuller of his second touchdown this preseason. "It was just another chance to be in the end zone to show the team here and to show other teams what I can do." Fuller, part of a multi-receiver competition for one of the teams final spots, finished with a team-best 43 yards receiving in helping the Lions finish the preseason at 3-1. Moore finished 17 of 28 for 172 yards and two touchdowns and is attempting to hang behind backup Dan Orlovsky. There are deeper concerns in Buffalo (1-4). The Bills produced another dud on offence during a three-drive cameo appearance. They also watched Watkins, their most dynamic threat, leave a game with bruised ribs for the second time in three weeks. Marrone declined to provide an update on the severity of the injury. And he defended his decision to play Watkins, who sat out a 27-14 loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday after he hurt his ribs a week earlier at Pittsburgh. "One of the big questions was the quarterback and Sammy. They havent played a lot of games," Marrone said. "I always get concerned when people come out, especially when youre a rookie. Youve got to play." Watkins, however, isnt just a normal rookie after the Bills invested heavily to land him in the draft. Buffalo traded its 2015 first-round pick to Cleveland to move up five spots and select the Clemson product with the fourth pick. Gary Harris Nuggets Jersey
. Watkins was hurt on Buffalos second possession, when he cut in from the right side on a slant pattern. Quarterback EJ Manuel never looked Watkins off and was a little late on the throw. Watkins reached out to knock down the ball, when he was hit by linebacker Ashlee Palmer. "It was a tight throw, and he probably just got a little banged up," Manuel said. "Hell be fine." Manuel went 3 of 7 for 56 yards and was sacked twice. Jordan Palmer unraveled in his debut for Buffalo. He went 9 of 22 for 73 yards passing and three interceptions two days after being signed to compete for a backup spot. First-year Lions coach Jim Caldwell took few risks by resting most of his starters, including quarterback Matthew Stafford, receiver Calvin Johnson and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. And the Lions still won. Jeremy Ross scored on a 1-yard touchdown catch, and seventh-round pick Nate Freese hit all three field-goal attempts, including two 53-yarders. The Lions defence continued its post-season string of first-half domination. Detroit gave up 97 yards net offence, had four sacks and safety Isa Abdul-Quddus interception of Palmers pass set up the first touchdown in the opening 30 minutes. The Lions finished the post-season allowing just six points in the first quarter and 22 in the first half. "Any time you can keep a team in the National Football League off the scoreboard, its a pretty good night for your defence," Caldwell said. "We still have some work to do, but overall, I thought it was a decent performance." NOTES: The Bills first-string offence finished the preseason combining for two touchdowns and three field goals on 23 possessions. ... Caldwell revealed that rookie LB Kyle Van Noys status is uncertain after he had surgery this week to address what has been called an injury to his abdomen. ... Marrone revealed he rested several players due to injuries, including DBs Stephon Gilmore (groin) and Corey Graham (ankle) and TE Scott Chandler (knee). Wholesale NFL Jerseys
