LOS ANGELES -- Reggie Bush won a Heisman Trophy and two national championships while playing at the Coliseum for the University of Southern California.He also won the love of millions of Los Angeles football fans -- and thats something he actually got to keep.Now an NFL veteran on the back stretch of his career, Bush is excited to return to the Coliseum as his Buffalo Bills (2-2) visit the Los Angeles Rams (3-1).Its long overdue, and I think everybody realizes that, Bush said of pro footballs return to the nations second-largest city. Its good that the Rams have gotten back. I think its going to be great.While Bush might not be much of a factor in the Bills game plan, hes still wildly popular in Los Angeles, where coach Pete Carrolls dominant Trojans were the biggest show in town during the NFLs 21-year absence.Bushs jersey is still among the most popular in the crowd at any Trojans game, even after the school officially disassociated itself from the star tailback. USC was hit with heavy NCAA sanctions in 2010 surrounding his familys acceptance of improper benefits.Bush never expected to get the chance to play professionally in the stadium where USC dominated during his heyday, and he still might not suit up for the Bills, who have him near the bottom of the depth chart.But hell be there Sunday along with fellow Trojans-turned-Bills Robert Woods, Nickell Robey-Coleman and Kevon Seymour.Its always important to pass it down, because at some point in time, we all get too old to play, said Bush, who lives in nearby Pacific Palisades with his family in the offseason. But not yet. Im not done yet.The second home game of the Rams homecoming season -- and their final game at the Coliseum until November -- matches two teams off to impressive starts.After knocking off NFC West rivals Seattle and Arizona, the Rams are on just their third three-game winning streak in 10 years and their best start to a season since 2006.Buffalo is coming off impressive back-to-back victories over Arizona and New England. The Bills have won two straight games -- and they havent won three straight since early in the 2011 season.Here are more things to watch when the Bills visit the Coliseum:DEFENSE FIRST: Both teams have built their winning streaks on solid defensive play. The Bills shut out the Patriots last week, while the Rams forced five turnovers and allowed only 13 points to the Cardinals. The offenses of Buffalo and Los Angeles could be overmatched, but the Bills will rely on quarterback Tyrod Taylors mobile playmaking under new offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn. The Rams will try to get a big game from running back Todd Gurley, who has only 216 yards in the first four games.COACHING CONNECTION: Rams coach Jeff Fisher played for defensive expert Buddy Ryan with the Chicago Bears, and he was Buddys defensive coordinator in Philadelphia. He sees elements of the father in the two sons currently running the Bills. They would hang around training camp in Chicago, and Ive followed their careers throughout, Fisher said. Buddy was very, very close with them. That was a hard loss this summer when we lost Buddy. Theyre both outstanding coaches. Theyre passionate. Theyre coaching for their dad right now, I know that. (Rex) is going to have his team ready.RUN IT: Buffalo and Los Angeles have two of the three worst passing offenses in the NFL, so the ground game should be a key for both teams. While the Bills are racking up 123.2 yards rushing per game, the Rams are ranked 30th in the league with four quiet games from Gurley. Defenses have been keying heavily on Gurley this season, and the Bills did a remarkable job in bottling up Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount last week. Offensive coordinator Rob Boras hopes Los Angeles can exploit its opponents imbalance through the passing game.DAREUS RETURN: Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is back from a four-game suspension for another violation of the NFLs substance abuse policy. The two-time Pro Bowler could be an enormous boost to the Buffalo defense if his mind is in the game, and he pronounced himself ready to roll this week. Im not trying to mess up anything, Dareus said. I just want to come in and be smooth and do what I can, help out where I can, and just be the best person and teammate I can possibly be.DETERMINED DONALD: If Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald is even more disruptive than usual, Bills coach Rex Ryan knows hes probably to blame. Donald acknowledged this week that he hadnt forgotten Ryans dismissive comments about his Pro Bowl selection two years ago, calling the words disrespectful. Donald was the NFCs defensive player of the week last week.---AP Sports Writer John Wawrow in Buffalo contributed to this report.---AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Thomas Steen Jersey . The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying. Brendan Perlini Jersey . Halladay signed a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday that allowed the veteran right-hander to retire as a member of team with which he broke into the majors and spent the bulk of his distinguished 16-year career. http://www.authentichockeyshopcoyotes.com/christian-fischer-coyotes-jersey-c-14/ . LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Lawson Crouse Jersey . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory. Jordan Martinook Jersey .4 million title. Ryan Riess emerged with the title after a session in which he started behind, but used expert skill to gather the chips to his side amid the unpredictability of no-limit Texas Hold em. Riess put his final opponent Jay Farber all-in with an Ace-King. CHICAGO -- When Josh Tomlins night was done and he made the walk to Clevelands dugout, his eyes scanned the Wrigley Field crowd searching for his dad.Jerry Tomlin was there -- at the World Series -- just like they both had dreamed.With his dad watching from a wheelchair, Tomlin pitched 4 2/3 scoreless innings Friday night as the Indians spoiled a game Chicago fans had waited 71 years to see by blanking the Cubs 1-0 in Game 3 to take a 2-1 lead in the Series.On a historic night in one of baseballs grandest ballparks, the Tomlins story was as sweet as it gets.Jerry Tomlin nearly died two months ago from a circulatory malformation that has left him paralyzed from the chest down. He spent two months in the Baylor Rehab Institute in Dallas before being released on Joshs birthday, which happened to be the day the Indians clinched the AL Pennant.And although he cant walk, and faces a daunting future, Jerry wasnt going to miss seeing Josh pitch in the Series.He made it all right, and as he sat in Section 122 swallowed by an ocean of Cubs fans, the elder Tomlin couldnt stop smiling.Its hard to put into words, he said about 30 minutes before Josh threw his first pitch. I didnt know what I was going to say when I got here and I still dont. The way everything planned out and the way people helped me to get here, man, its definitely a dream come true.There was no way I was going to miss this.Tomlin was accompanied by his wife, Elena, who stood in the aisle as game time approached.We both have butterflies, she said. This is a day (Josh) has been waiting for since he was 4 years old. Hes been playing baseball his whole life. What more can yyou ask for than when your kid gets to live his dream?Tomlin came through once again for the Indians, holding the Cubs without a run on two hits before he was lifted by manager Terry Francona, who gave him a hug before taking the ball.ddddddddddddThe Indians entered the postseason down two starters as both Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar were injured in September, and then when Trevor Bauer cut his pinkie open while repairing one of his drones, Clevelands chances to go very deep in the postseason seemed remote at best.But Tomlin has delivered, entering Fridays game with a 2-0 record and 2.53 ERA.Hes been a rock, just like his dad always has been for him.Jerry Tomlin coached Josh until he was in high school and the 31-year-old, who is the longest tenured player on Clevelands roster, said he has friends who tell him to this day that his dad was the best coach they ever played for.Tomlin knew nothing would stop his dad, who fell ill at work in August and initially thought he was having stomach problems. However, doctors were examining him when he lost all the feeling in his lower body from a condition that affects blood vessels on his spine. Surgery saved his life, and Josh left the Indians to be with his dad following the operation.As his dad recovered, Josh kept pitching but his mind was never far from thinking about family.Hes called me a couple times. Never complaining, Jerry said. I told him just go back to work and do what you do. Quit worrying about your dad and go get `em.Josh did just that.
