TAMPA, Fla. -- Tampa Bays Dirk Koetter wants no part of a discussion about playoff prospects or aspirations.The Buccaneers (5-5) have won two straight to climb back into contention for what would be their first berth in nearly a decade. However, the coach says his team cant afford to think about anything other than whats staring them in the face right now. And, thats a matchup against the first-place Seattle Seahawks (7-2-1).Koetter bristled when he was asked if he detected a playoff intensity from the Bucs in practice this week.I want to feel a Seattle Seahawk-type of intensity because its going to take the most intensity weve got to be with Seattle on Sunday, the first-year coach said. Thats all that really matters right now.Jameis Winston also shrugged off questions about the playoff race .Weve got to get a `W before we even talk about a `P, the second-year quarterback said, mindful that the Bucs were in a similar position a year ago, when they started 6-6 only to lose their final four games.Winston had one of the best performances of his career in last weeks confidence-bolstering 19-17 road win at Kansas City. The Seahawks have won three straight, including beating New England on the road, but figure to be far from full strength health-wise.Nine players on Seattles injury report, including safety Earl Thomas and cornerback DeShawn Shead , missed at least two days of practice in preparation for the Bucs.Russell Wilson wasnt one of them, though. Hes played through a string of injuries and has been one of the hottest quarterbacks in the league during the Seahawks winning streak with 902 passing yards, six touchdowns and zero interceptions in victories over the Bills, Patriots and Eagles the past three weeks.Theres been some significant injuries to a lot of the guys, and weve been able to overcome those situations and those injuries and still find ways to win, still find ways to play in the game and play at a high level, Wilson said, adding the focus in on doing whatever it takes to win and continue to play great football.Some things to know heading into the 13th meeting between franchises that entered the NFL as expansion mates in 1976:THANKS, RUSSELL: Winston and Wilson had a long conversation at last seasons Pro Bowl, and Tampa Bays young quarterback came away impressed with his Seattle counterpart and Minnesotas Teddy Bridgewater. Russell is a true professional, and he does his job the right way. I learned so much from him as far as what to eat, what a Pro Bowl quarterback should be like, Winston said.DEPLETED DEFENSE: The Seahawks will be without defensive end Michael Bennett for the fifth straight game, unable to get him back from minor knee surgery in time to face his former team. Losses in the secondary likely will be more impactful. The Seahawks are expected to be without Thomas and Shead. Both suffered hamstring injuries in last weeks win over Philadelphia. If Thomas doesnt play, it will be the first game hes missed in his career, snapping a streak of 106 consecutive starts. Steven Terrell likely would fill in for Thomas at free safety, while the combo of Neiko Thorpe and Jeremy Lane would take Sheads role opposite Richard Sherman.BACK ON TRACK: Tampa Bay rookie PK Roberto Aguayo has rebounded from a shaky start to his pro career to begin show why the Bucs drafted him in the second round. Since misfiring on four of his first eight field goal tries, Aguayo has made nine of his last 10, including going 4-for-4 in last weeks win at Kansas City. This is what I do best. Ive done it for a long time. Sometimes youve got to realize that, Aguayo said. With the transition into the NFL, you try not to put an excuse on anything. Youve just got to get through it. People can say, `Was it this? Was it that? At the end of the day, youve got to grind through it.FOLLOW ME: Dont be surprised to see Mike Evans added to the list of wide receivers shadowed by Sherman. With the injuries in Seattles secondary and how often Winston looks toward Evans, it makes sense for the Seahawks to put Sherman on Evans. Already this season, Sherman has followed the likes of Brandon Marshall, Julio Jones and Jordan Matthews for long stretches. It gets you more action, Sherman said. You get more targets. You get a chance to be more involved in the game. You get a chance to get into a rhythm.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Atlanta Falcons Jerseys .

BARCELONA, Spain -- Unless Cristiano Ronaldo suddenly decides to add mercy to his list of virtues, the Real Madrid forward will have a good shot at scoring his 100th goal in European competition on Wednesday.Ronaldo, who once aptly described himself as rich, handsome and a great player, is two goals short of that landmark before Madrid visits Legia Warsaw in the Champions League on Wednesday.The Portugal forward arrives primed for more goals after recovering his ruthless touch on Saturday, when he scored his 38th career hat trick in a 4-1 win at Alaves in the Spanish league.Ronaldo is the all-time leading scorer in the Champions League, with 95 of his European goals coming in the tournament he helped Madrid win for a record 11th time last season.But Barcelona rival Lionel Messi has closed the gap with Ronaldo in their never-ending scoring duel after netting seven goals to lead the Champions League this season. Thats compared to Ronaldos two so far. Messi has 90 Champions League goals -- after scoring the opener in Barcelonas 3-1 defeat against Manchester City on Tuesday -- and 93 in all UEFA competitions.Legia looks like easy pickings for Ronaldo. The Polish team has lost all three group matches and conceded a tournament-high 13 goals.And its players will face Madrid all alone at Wojska Polskiego Stadium, whose doors will be closed to the public by UEFA as a penalty for fans racist behavior and the fireworks thrown during a previous loss to Borussia Dortmund.Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane said Legia has played well despite the poor results.We respect Legia. This is a good team, that can get you into trouble, Zidane said. They were not very lucky with results, but, as I said, they can be dangerous for opponents.Madrid, which beat Legia 5-1 in their first meeting without any goals from Ronaldo, are undefeated in 26 matches across all competitions dating back to last seasons quarterfinals. They have won their last five matches overall by the combined score of 24-5.Gareth Bale will also be eager to shine after signing a new contract with Madrid through 2022.The only worry for Madrid is the absence of injured center backs Pepe and Sergio Ramos.Madrid will qualify for the last 16 if it wins and Dortmund beats Sporting Lisbon in the other Group F match.Here are some others things to know about Wednesdays matches:---GROUP EGroup E is proving tto be this seasons most competitive quartet.ddddddddddddOnly three points separate leader Monaco from last-placed CSKA Moscow before they meet in the Mediterranean principality. Monaco has been boosted this campaign by the arrival of Poland defender Kamil Glik, whose late goal earned a draw against Bayer Leverkusen.Tottenham hosts Leverkusen with both sides hoping for a win combined with a Monaco slip to move to the top of the group. Spurs havent won in five matches across all competitions without injured striker Harry Kane.---GROUP FDortmund, like Madrid, can advance with a win over Sporting Lisbon.Mario Goetze, who returned to Dortmund this season from Bayern Munich, has shown some flashes of his rich talent. But more will be needed for Dortmund make another run to the final like in 2013, which Goetze missed because of injury.To do it would be my biggest dream come true, Goetze said. Yet that was a long time ago. Im focusing on the future and on this Champions League season. Its not going to be easy next time against Sporting.---GROUP GIts Premier League title defense may be in serious trouble, but Leicester City is outperforming the other English sides in its first foray in the Champions League.Three wins in as many matches mean Leicester can seal a place in the knockout rounds with another win over FC Copenhagen.In the other group match, FC Porto welcomes Brugge hoping to break a run of four home matches without a victory in Europe.---GROUP HJuventus and Sevilla are level at the top of Group H and can go through with victories in their respective home matches against Lyon and Dinamo Zagreb.Juventus faces Lyon fresh off an encouraging 2-1 win over domestic rival Napoli, which allowed it to build a four-point lead in Serie A.I can be satisfied with our start, but Im also sure we have a lot of room to improve, Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain said. Were expecting a difficult game. Lyon had better results in their recent games and they gave us a real test two weeks ago.Sevilla will be without midfielder Samir Nasri, who has been playing well for the Andalusian side on loan from Manchester City.Nasri scored Sevillas winner in a 1-0 victory in Zagreb. He then picked up a left leg muscle injury over the weekend.
