TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Jari Kurri Jersey . -- DeMarcus Walkers blocked extra point for 14th-ranked Florida State in last Saturdays win over No. 16 Miami capped an emotional couple days.On Monday, the senior defensive end said seeing Hurricane Matthew hit the Jacksonville area late last week took a toll -- Walkers family lives 10 minutes from Jacksonville Beach.Seeing the roads flooded, the pier getting knocked down, a picture of a shark swimming, it was hard, Walker said. Im trying to call my family and they werent picking up. I got a text from my mom that she had to go across to my aunts. It was heartbreaking.There were times throughout the game I was sidetracked, but I played a decent game and got a `W.Walker said no one in his family was hurt during the hurricane and that they were good following the storm.Walker ended up having two tackles in the game, but it was his block of Michael Badgleys extra point with 1:38 remaining that ended up being the difference in the Seminoles 20-19 win . Florida State fans have already nicknamed it `The Block at The Rock since the game was at Hard Rock Stadium. Its the latest among many memorable plays from the rivalry.Walker has a knack for coming up with blocks in rivalry games. He also blocked a field goal in last years game against Florida.The block against Miami also marked the first time since 1954 that Florida State has blocked PATs in consecutive games.I didnt know it was that big until today during warmup when people came up and said I was a part of history with `The Block at The Rock. I thought it wasnt a big deal. I saw everyone saying it on social media, Walker said. I needed to make a play. I didnt want to go to overtime because I was too tired.Going into Saturdays game against Wake Forest, Walker is tied for second in the Atlantic Coast Conference in sacks (6 1/2) while his 26 tackles are second on the team.Hopefully the win was a step in the right direction, he said. We have a bye week coming up next week so were grinding it out and we can get healthy next week. Connor McDavid Jersey . Varlamov made 33 saves and Ryan OReilly had a goal and scored in the shootout as the Avalanche beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Thursday night. Nail Yakupov Oilers Jersey . Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1 Michigan State. Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds. . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- After spending nearly two weeks only lining up against teammates, the San Francisco 49ers are looking forward to the opportunity to hit someone else for a change.The Niners will hold a joint practice on Friday with the Houston Texans before the two teams open the exhibition season two days later at Levis Stadium.While these sessions often come with increased intensity and occasional fights, 49ers coach Chip Kelly said he does not believe his players will cross any lines.They understand that you have to play with emotion, not let emotion play with you, Kelly said. Its the same rules that you have in a game. If you get in a fight in a game, youre not going to be around. So, its the same thing. Were trying to get a good quality practice. Were not trying to turn it into a WWE wrestling match.That has not always been the case. Two years ago, the Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys got into a few scuffles in a joint practice in Oxnard that spilled over into the fans on the side of the field. One Raiders fan even tried to hit a Dallas defender with a replica helmet.Niners rookie guard Joshua Garnett said its important to strike a balance between being aggressive and physical, while staying under control.You hope people are not too sensitive, he said. Youre going to go after them and theyre going to go after you. You want to be the guy dealing the blow and not be that guy who gets caught not going harder than your opponent. You always want to be that guy setting the tempo but keep it under control and play with poise and not get out of control with your emotions.Kelly is a proponent of joint practices, having done them a few times during his tenure in Philadelphia. The 49ers will hold another joint practice nextt week in Denver before taking on the Broncos in their second exhibition game. Laurent Brossoit Oilers Jersey. I think its always good, Kelly said. Its a great way to gauge yourself. Ive done it in the past a couple times with the Patriots and once with the Ravens. We thought it was quality work in the three years that we did it.The sessions require some pre-planning with head coaches coordinating schedules and offensive and defensive coordinators trading ideas and scripts to make sure the practices go as smoothly as possible.Kelly said he has spent a lot of time talking to Texans coach Bill OBrien about how the sessions will go. The coordinators for both teams also have been involved, with Niners offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins trading ideas with Texans defensive head Romeo Crennel and defensive coordinator Jim ONeil doing the same with Houston offensive coordinator George Godsey.ONeil said he and Godsey have talked about whether there are any different looks they would like to see Friday in practice that they arent able to see as much when they go up against their own teams.For us defensively, its going to be huge just from a player evaluation standpoint and then its a totally different offensive scheme, ONeil said. Itll be a lot more two-back formations, stuff we need to see to get ready for the season. So, itll be a big test for our defense.Game notes QB Colin Kaepernick only took mental reps at practice Thursday in what the team described as a planned rest day. ...
