GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Chandler Catanzaro kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired and the Arizona Cardinals escaped with a 23-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.Catanzaro missed twice on game-winning field goal tries earlier in the season, most memorably a 24-yarder in overtime of a 6-6 tie against Seattle.But this attempt was right down the middle as Arizona (4-4-1) narrowly averted a devastating loss.The 49ers (1-8) lost their eighth in a row despite a strong game by Colin Kaepernick, who tied it at 20-20 on a 4-yard run with 1:55 to play.That was enough time for Carson Palmer to gain redemption after three second-half turnovers, the last an interception by Gerald Hodges that led to the tying touchdown.Palmer completed 4 of 7 passes for 64 yards, including a leaping 26-yard grab by Michael Floyd, as the Cardinals drove from their 15 to the San Francisco 16 to set up the winning kick.Against the leagues No. 32-ranked rush defense, the Cardinals David Johnson was held to 55 yards on 19 carries.Johnson, who accounted for both Arizona touchdowns, finished with 101 yards from scrimmage, thanks to that late drive, his ninth straight game of at least 100 total yards.Kaepernick, returning to the scene of one of the worst games of his career a season ago, completed 17 of 30 passes for 210 yards and ran 10 times for 55 yards.Larry Fitzgerald caught 12 passes for 133 yards and Floyd caught five for 101 yards, his best game of what had been a difficult season.Palmer was 30 of 49 for a season-high 376 yards and a touchdown, but the turnovers were almost his undoing.Arizona, coming off a bye week after a one-sided loss at Carolina, jumped out to a 14-0 lead but couldnt shake the 49ers.The Cardinals led 20-10 at the half, but didnt score in the second half until the game-winning field goal.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Penguins Jerseys Authentic . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead.

The second-ranked Norwegian made her season debut after missing the LPGA Tours opening event last month in the Bahamas because of a shoulder injury. There are no immediate plans for Patent No. 0125691.The description contains plain words like computer, real-time and online. Figure 2, an accompanying diagram, shows the systems entire process in an eight-step flow chart that ends with determine payout of event.The patent application, published on May 6 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, remains pending.But dont let its apparent simplicity fool you: This patent application is held by Microsoft, and it could be a critical piece of a future with widespread legal sports betting in the United States.Over four months, ESPN interviewed more than 50 sources representing a vast spectrum of interests and came away with numerous key findings about the future of American sports betting. Among them:? Congress is in the early stages of reviewing federal gambling laws and plans to introduce comprehensive legislation that will address sports betting, daily fantasy sports and other forms of online gaming.? Some of the worlds largest tech companies are expected to emerge as bookmaking giants that will compete against established U.S. and international sportsbook operators, state lotteries, Native American gaming interests and fantasy sports sites for a share of the market.? Stock market-like sports betting exchanges will be created to cater to the more sophisticated bettor, while also presenting the sports leagues with a potential opportunity to profit directly off of legal sports gambling.? Robots -- fueled by dynamic algorithms, motion-tracking cameras and microchips capable of ingesting troves of real-time data from athletes bodies -- will increasingly dominate high-stakes sports betting.? Legalization may produce pitfalls, including increases in gambling addiction and gambling-related advertising, which have plagued other jurisdictions with legal sports betting.While opinions vary on when a legal market may take shape in the U.S., who the biggest bookmakers of the future will be and if American society can handle what will be a dramatic shift in sports culture, experts almost unanimously agree with NBA commissioner Adam Silvers prediction: Expanded legalized sports betting is inevitable.In this three-part series, ESPN examines a future landscape with widespread legalized sports betting in the United States, beginning with potential paths to legalization and what the resulting marketplace may resemble.Part 1: The marketplaceCapitol Hill, the states and paths to legalizationThe mainstream acceptance of sports betting is peaking. Cash-strapped states are starting to see sports betting as a potential source of revenue more than a detriment to society. The point spread and betting action in Las Vegas are now popular storylines for every big game, and for the first time, a commissioner of a major professional sports league has come out in support of legalizing sports betting. There simply has never been this much momentum to legalize sports betting outside of Nevada.But momentum and definitive results are two very different things. As of now, state-sponsored gambling is illegal outside of a handful of states, with single-game wagering permitted only in Nevada.Some in the U.S. government feel its time for a change and that the current federal gambling laws --most notably the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA), Wire Act of 1961 and the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 -- arent appropriate anymore and need updating.The laws need a wholesale review to see how they can actually work together and create a fairer playing field for all types of gambling, both online and offline, including sports betting and daily fantasy sports, U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone Jr., of New Jersey told ESPN. At the same time, we must ensure the laws are actually creating an environment of integrity and accountability, and include strong consumer protections.I plan to continue discussions with the key stakeholders and then will introduce comprehensive legislation to finally update these outdated laws. In addition, lobbying efforts led by the American Gaming Association are set to begin in 2017. The next [U.S.] president is going to have that issue of legalizing sports betting on their desk, AGA CEO and president Geoff Freeman has said.But all the sports leagues are not on board, yet. They are, however, strategically positioning themselves for widespread legal sports wagering. The NCAA and NFL remain publicly opposed to legalization. The NHL and Major League Baseball, while showing signs of a softening stance, have stopped short of coming out in full support. Even the NBA, by far the most outspoken proponent of legalization among the sports leagues, has repeatedly said its not ready to contribute to direct lobbying efforts.Weve been supportive of legalized sports betting, and well continue to be supportive, NBA senior vice president and assistant general counsel Dan Spillane told ESPN. If someone in Congress were to ask our view on a bill thats proposed, then Im sure wed be happy to participate and weigh in. The leagues have financial stakes in daily fantasy sports sites and a sudden interest in Las Vegas, and have struck deals with data companies that fuel the international sports betting market.The NFL, NBA and NHL have deals with Sportradar, a Switzerland-based conglomerate that is the parent company of Betradar, a major player in the global sports betting industry, and Major League Baseball has partnered with Genius Sports, a multi-faceted gambling data firm located in London. Even the NCAA has a commercial affiliation with Sportradar, with the Pac-12 conference using the services of CG Analytics, a subsidiary of a prominent Nevada sportsbook.These partnerships represent a profound shift in the leagues position on line monitoring, the task of tracking gambling data in an attempt to identify unusual moves or unnatural money. As recently as 2007, representatives of the NBA, NCAA, NHL, MLB, and NFL sent a letter to Congress dismissing the value of line monitoring.In addition, game integrity concerns -- often cited as a reason to oppose regulated sports betting -- are now increasingly being used as a reason to support legalized sports wagering, given the ability to track statistical data.While the leagues stances are shifting gradually, experts say sports betting of the legal variety is still years away from arriving at your local casino or on your mobile phone.My heart says it should be one to three [years], former NBA commissioner David Stern told ESPN in September. My head says its between five and 10.Individual states might not wait that long.New Jersey has invested millions of dollars in legal fees while fighting the sports leagues and challenging PASPA (the federal prohibition on state-sponsored sports betting) in its ongoing case that began back in 2012. In October, New Jersey filed its second appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court on this issue.This summer, Pennsylvania passed a resolution urging Congress to lift the Federal ban on sports betting and to allow states that authorize, license and regulate casino gaming, including the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to legalize sports betting through its licensed facilities. And New York Assemblyman J. Gary Pretlow is currently planning a 2017 legal challenge to PASPA.While its clear that states are already taking steps, it is unknown exactly how many would begin offering legal sports betting if the federal prohibition were lifted. Estimates range from less than half to as high as 48.[If] PASPA gets amended, I think youll see five to 10 states opt in quickly and offer it, Tim Wilmott, president and CEO of Penn National Gaming, Inc., said. There are places like Utah, Hawaii, Tennessee, some states down in the South, that I think are going to be slower to accept it.The landscape in some of the states that do opt in may be different than that in the United Kingdom, where sports betting is legal and retail bookmaking shops are commonplace on city streets. More conservative states likely will restrict sports betting to casinos and horse racing tracks; others may allow locations that sell lottery tickets to accept sports bets; and some will have betting kiosks at sports bars, gas stations and liquor stores.Eventually, though, almost all sports betting will take place online, experts say.Online is where everything is going, John McManus, executive vice president and general counsel for MGM Resorts International, told ESPN this summer. Thats where people are going to want to place bets. Thats where it makes sense to place bets and to be done safely.A widespread, fully mature online sports betting market in the U.S. would be the
