EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Merril Hoge Jersey .J. -- Matt Simms might have answered at least one part of the New York Jets quarterback question. The starter and backup are still uncertain. But Simms proved he deserved to be No. 3. Simms, competing for the third-string job, led four scoring drives, and Kahlil Bell ran for 80 yards and two touchdowns as the Jets topped the Philadelphia Eagles 27-20 on Thursday night in the teams preseason finale. "Yeah, it was a lot of fun," Simms said. "To go out there and play like that, its just tremendous. Your dream finally comes true. It was everything and more." Rookie Geno Smith, the Jets possible Week 1 starter, and the injured Mark Sanchez sat this one out as both Rex Ryan and the Eagles Chip Kelly rested their starters. That meant Michael Vick also remained on Philadelphias sideline after winning the Eagles competition last week, earning the job ahead of Nick Foles while looking comfortable and effective running Kellys up-tempo offence. Smith, the Jets second-round draft pick, was in uniform but was told Wednesday he wouldnt play anymore in the preseason. "In our current situation with Mark being down, you just cant take any risks," Smith said. Sanchez injured his right shoulder in the fourth quarter of the teams 24-21 overtime win over the Giants last Saturday night and is uncertain to start the season. Ryans decision to play Sanchez, who appeared to win the starting job after Smith threw three interceptions and stepped out of bounds for a safety, was highly criticized during the past few days. Ryan said he wouldnt have put Sanchez out on the field if it wasnt "important," but Smith might have earned the season-opening start by default. "Business as usual," Smith said when asked if he was approaching things as if hell start. "Thats something I always do and whether or not I am (starting), I will always approach it the same way." The Jets have said only that Sanchez is "day to day" with the injury, but its very possible Smith could be under centre against Tampa Bay on Sept 8. Ryan had no update on Sanchez after the game, and the quarterback left MetLife Stadium without addressing the media. Simms, whose father Phil had plenty of big games against the Eagles in his days with the Giants, had his own Meadowlands moment. He finished 33 of 44 for 285 yards while playing almost the entire game; newly signed Graham Harrell took a knee to end it. Greg McElroy, whom Simms has been competing with, didnt play with an injured knee. "We really wanted to get a good look at Simms, we really did," Ryan said. "I think hes earned that right. ... Matt jumped in and made the most of his opportunity." Antonio Allen appeared to seal it for the Jets (3-1) when he intercepted Matt Barkley and returned it 20 yards for a touchdown with 1:57 remaining in the game. But the Eagles (2-2) had one more chance after Zach Rogers dropped a fair catch of a punt with 45 seconds left. Matthew Tucker ran it in from 1 yard moments later to make it 27-20 with his second TD of the game for Philadelphia. The ensuing onside kick attempt by the Eagles went out of bounds, sealing it for the Jets. Foles was 6 of 17 for 63 yards in two quarters, before being replaced by Barkley to start the second half. Barkley was 13 of 27 for 134 yards and the interception. "I dont think we protected (Foles) very well," Kelly said. "A lot of times, it was a four-man rush that was in his face. He didnt really have time to set his feet. We had some protection issues with the second O-line." After Barkley led a tying touchdown drive for the Eagles, Simms went to work -- and the Jets stayed on the field a while. Bell capped a 19-play drive over 80 yards that ticked 10:19 off the clock with a 2-yard touchdown run, his second score of the game. "Hes been playing phenomenally all season," Bell said of Simms. "The kids been coming out and slinging it." Simms was sacked seven times in the first half, and the first came 2:21 into the game when he was taken down by Brandon Graham in the end zone for a safety that gave the Eagles a 2-0 lead. The Jets got the ball back quickly, though, by forcing a turnover on second down when Ricky Sapp sacked Foles and forced a fumble that was recovered by Antonio Garay. Simms then led a five-play scoring drive that included a defensive holding penalty and was capped by an 8-yard run by Bell, who took a direct snap in the wildcat formation. Dan Carpenter, signed Tuesday to compete with incumbent Nick Folk, kicked a 45-yard field goal with 4:01 left in the opening quarter to make it 10-2. Philadelphia took advantage of a fumble recovery by Colt Anderson late in the first half after Konrad Reuland lost the ball and put the Eagles deep in Jets territory. Alex Henery kicked a 38-yard field goal moments later to make it 10-5 with 2:34 left. Barkley led a 16-play, 80-yard scoring drive on the Eagles second possession of the second half, capped by a 3-yard run by Tucker. The undrafted free agent out of TCU then took a handoff up the middle for the 2-point conversion to tie it at 13 with 6:35 left in the third quarter. "Ive kind of been all over the place," Barkley said. "Its a different kind of rhythm you have to try and get in to. Its kind of bits and pieces. I think Ive managed to do as best a job as I can. Im learning as much as I can." NOTES: Eagles CB Trevard Lindley sprained his right ankle in the third quarter, and TE James Casey left in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and didnt return. ... Simms 285 yards passing were the most by a Jets QB in a preseason game since Ray Lucas threw for 286 against the Giants in 2000. ... LBs Chris McCoy and Everette Brown each had two sacks for the Eagles. Hines Ward Jersey . And follow right through Wednesdays 3pm et trade deadline for all the updates. Blue line help for Red Wings?

In his career, he has three goals and six assists in 43 NHL games.U.S. womens goalkeeper Hope Solo has apologized to her fans via social media following her arrest for domestic violence last weekend. Solo, who also plays for the Seattle Reign of the National Womens Soccer League, posted her apology on her Facebook page and also posted a link to the statement on her official Twitter account. "I love my family dearly. We, like all families, have our challenges but my sincere hope is that we are able to resolve this situation as a family," she said. "Adversity has always made us stronger and I know this situation will be no different." Solo pleaded not guilty plea to two counts of fourth-degree domestic violence Monday in a Kirkland, Washington, court and was released without bail. She is accused of assaulting her sister and 17-year-old nephew at her sisters home in suburban Seattle early Saturday. Her lawyer claims the goalkeeper was a victim in the altercation. "I understand that, as a public figure, I am held to a higher standard of conduct," Solo said. "I take seriously my responsibilities as a role model and sincerely apologize to everyone I have disappointed." Her next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 11. Solos 17-year-old nephew told police she was upset and appeared to have been drinking when she arrived at a family gathering. She and her nephew got into a fistfight after arguing about his acting aspirations and she called him fat and crazy, according to court documents. When the boys mother tried to break up the confrontation, Solo punched her in the face, the documents said. The nephew broke a broom over Solos head and the teen pointed a broken BB gun at her and tried to get hher to leave, the documents said. Jack Butler Jersey. "Hope is not guilty of any crime," her attorney, Todd Maybrown said in an email to The Associated Press. "In fact, our investigation reveals that Hope was assaulted and injured during this unfortunate incident. We look forward to the opportunity to present the true facts in court and to having this matter behind Hope very soon." Solo married former Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens in 2012. He was arrested just before their wedding for investigation of assault after a disturbance involving Solo, but he was not charged. Maybrown represented Stevens in that case. Solo said soon afterward that there never was an assault and that she and her new husband were happy. On Thursday she posted a photo of herself with Stevens and two others holding an American flag to cheer on the U.S. mens team in the World Cup. The 32-year-old Solo has won two Olympic gold medals with the U.S. womens national team. In her last appearance for the U.S., Solo had her 71st career shutout, a 1-0 victory over France on June 14 in Tampa, Florida. She did not appear in the teams second match against France last week in East Hartford, Connecticut. Ashlyn Harris started in Solos place for the 2-2 draw. The U.S. womens team does not have any additional matches planned at this time before Octobers CONCACAF qualifying tournament for the 2015 World Cup in Canada. "I look forward to getting back on the field where I belong with both Seattle Reign FC and the US Womens National Team," she said in her statement. ------ Associated Press Writer Donna Gordon Blankinship in Seattle contributed to this report.
