A 3-2 comeback win over Chelsea on Saturday lifted Sam Allardyces men above Newcastle, who dropped back into the bottom three as they were held to a goalless draw by relegated Aston Villa. In the early kick-off, 19th-placed Norwich were unable to close the gap on their relegation rivals as they fell to a 1-0 loss against Manchester United.So what could happen next in the fight for survival? Here, we take a look at Sunderland, Newcastle and Norwichs remaining fixtures and examine the battle as it stands. Jermain Defoe scored in Sunderlands comeback win over Chelsea Premier League relegation battle Position Team Games played Goal difference Points 17th Sunderland 36 -17 35 18th Newcastle 37 -25 34 19th Norwich 36 -27 31 20th Aston Villa ® 37 -45 17 PermutationsSunderland can guarantee their Premier League survival - and condemn Newcastle and Norwich to the Championship - by beating Everton in their game in hand on Wednesday evening - live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 7pm.But their superior goal difference to Newcastle and Norwich means just two points from their final two games would almost certainly be enough to clinch safety. Newcastle were held to a goalless draw by Aston Villa Remaining fixtures Sunderland Newcastle Norwich Everton (h) - Watford (h) Watford (a) Tottenham (h) Everton (a) The only two scenarios in which two points wouldnt be enough for Sunderland would be if Newcastle won their final game with an eight-goal swing or Norwich won their remaining fixtures with a 10-goal swing. Such dramatic swings in goal difference, of course, are extremely improbable. Rafa Benitez was very disappointed with his sides 0-0 draw against Aston Villa The outlook is bleak for Norwich, who must beat Watford and Everton and hope Sunderland take no more than one point from their remaining two games against the same two sides.They would also need Newcastle to drop points at home to Tottenham on the final day. Sam Allardyce reflects on Sunderlands extraordinary win over Chelsea Newcastle could already be relegated by the time they face Tottenham next weekend, but they could clinch survival if they beat Spurs, and Sunderland take a maximum of one point from their remaining fixtures.

Russell Wilson against Darrelle Revis, former teammate Brandon Browner and whatever schemes Bill Belichick dreams up.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Detroit Red Wings aim to match their longest winning streak of the season and grab sole possession of second place in the Atlantic Division on Sunday night when they take on the skidding Buffalo Sabres. The Red Wings have won three straight and five of their last six games, putting them in a tie with the Montreal Canadiens in the division with 59 points. Tampa Bay is leading the Atlantic with 62 points and is idle on Sunday along with the Habs. Detroit, meanwhile, plays for a second night in a row after topping the Nashville Predators 5-2 on Saturday. Tomas Tatar had two goals -- giving him a career high 20 on the season -- and an assist to pace the rout. Gustav Nyquist tallied a goal and an assist, Henrik Zetterberg and Kyle Quincey each scored and Pavel Datsyuk, Riley Sheahan and Niklas Kronwall each had two assists. Detroit scored just 57 seconds in as part of a three-goal first period and got 34 saves by netminder Petr Mrazek. I thought the guys got off to a good start, Detroit head coach Mike Babcock said. Then (Mrazek) was big and square. The Red Wings won a season-high four in a row from Nov. 24-30 and could go with Mrazek again tonight with No. 1 Jimmy Howard out with a groin injury. Mrazek has never faced the Sabres. Washington Redskins Jerseys. Detroit is a good bet to match its season-high win streak given it has won two straight, 10 of 11 and 20 of its past 24 versus Buffalo. That includes six in a row at home, with the Sabres having not won in Motown since Oct. 13, 2006. These current Sabres dont appear likely to reverse that trend as they come in having lost a franchise-record 10 straight in regulation. Last nights 4-3 setback to the Philadelphia Flyers made Buffalo the first team to lose 10 in a row in regulation since the Pittsburgh Penguins from Jan. 6-23, 2006. Zemgus Girgensons snapped an eight-game pointless streak with a pair of goals, while Tyler Ennis scored and Chris Stewart posted two assists. If you dont go to the net, if you dont carry the puck and you dont fight your way in their, youre not going to have a chance, Sabres coach Ted Nolan said. Michal Neuvirth allowed all four Philadelphia scores on 32 shots. Buffalo has not won since Dec. 27 at home versus the New York Islanders and is tied with Edmonton for the fewest points in the NHL with 31. The Sabres also have lost 10 straight on the road since a victory in Montreal on Nov. 29. They kick off a five-game swing tonight.
