Taylor Heinicke’s check-downs limit Washington Football Team offense
It’s possible Heinicke stayed conservative despite the deficit because the coaches, including Rivera, have stressed to him since he became the starter not to gamble too much. Heinicke sometimes forces plays, as he did on two interceptions in a lopsided loss at the Buffalo Bills, and Rivera has emphasized, “There’s no such thing as a 14-point play.” Fitzpatrick isn’t statistically a much better deep-ball thrower than Heinicke, but he does have 147 career starts to Heinicke’s seven, which might give him more of the benefit of the doubt from his coaches when deciding to make a risky throw.
FIFA fears recent abuse cases in women's football are just 'tip of the iceberg'
(CNN) After allegations of abuse in women's football surfaced in recent weeks in the US, Venezuela and Australia, the sport's world governing body FIFA fears they could be the "tip of the iceberg." "There wasn't a set way to manage allegations or information that was coming in on sexual abuse or sexual harassment," Smith told CNN Sport. However FIFA has another problem in the challenge it faces in dealing with the issue of abuse of women's football -- unpaid fines. FIFA's statement comes after it was announced an investigation has been launched following accusations of sexual abuse by former Venezuelan national women's football coach Kenneth Zseremeta, the country's Attorney-General Tarek William Saab announced earlier in October.

Australian golfer makes hole-in-one just shy of 100th birthday
(CNN) Traditional golfing etiquette calls for waiting for the group in front of you to vacate the green before hitting your drive on a par-3 hole. Since 99-year-old Hugh Brown typically struggles to make the green in one shot, he teed off with the group ahead of him still on the 5th hole green at the Indooroopilly Golf Club in Queensland, Australia. Next thing he knew, Brown saw the group ahead waving their hands. Hugh Brown carded his first hole-in-one since 1960. Brown had made a hole-in-one on the 161-yard par-3 hole, just two months shy of his 100th birthday.

Watt forces fumble in overtime, Steelers edge Seahawks 23-20
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin insists there is nothing “mystical” to the way outside linebacker T.J. Watt goes about his business.

Olympics-Protests in Athens as Beijing prepares for Games flame
By Karolos GrohmannATHENS – Greek police detained two human rights activists after they unfurled banners at the Athens Acropolis on Sunday opposing the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics as China’s Games organisers prepare to receive the Olympic flame. The activists detained were 18-year-old Tibetan student Tsela Zoksang and 22-year-old Joey Siu, a U.S. citizen exiled from Hong Kong. Instead, a backup flame from previous rehearsals was used by an actress playing the high priestess. More rain is expected on Monday, with human rights activists pledging more actions until Tuesday’s flame handover to Chinese Games organisers in Athens. The Beijing 2008 Summer Games flame ceremony was also severely disrupted by a string of protests from human rights activists, which was the start of international demonstrations over China’s human rights record leading up to the Olympics.
Emiliano Sala: Man who organised footballer's fatal flight goes on trial
A man accused of organising the flight which carried footballer Emiliano Sala, who died when the plane crashed in the English Channel in 2019, goes on trial on Monday in Cardiff. Before taking the small private plane, Emiliano Sala was worried about the aircraft's condition. "I'm on the plane, it looks like it's going to fall apart, and I'm leaving for Cardiff," Emiliano Sala said in a voicemail message sent to relatives via WhatsApp. Parents, friends, and representatives from Cardiff, Nantes, and Bordeaux -- the club that formed him -- were among hundreds who came to pay tribute in Progreso, the village where he grew up. Vahid Halilhodzic, then coach of FC Nantes, said about Sala that he had "rarely seen someone so endearing, humble, modest.
IOC's Juan Antonio Samaranch says Beijing Games about unity
Next year’s Beijing Games have triggered protests over China’s human rights record, but the International Olympic Committee’s point man for the event, Juan Antonio Samaranch, said the event is about bringing young people together.

Despite his observation, human rights activists protested in Athens on Sunday ahead of Monday’s torch-lighting ceremony for the Games in ancient Olympia. The IOC is also facing criticism for awarding China two Olympics — the 2008 Summer Games as well as next year’s winter edition — with human rights groups saying no improvements have been made since the 2008 Games. However, unlike this year’s rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Games, which banned all fans due to the pandemic, local fans will be allowed to attend the Beijing Olympics.
Rejuvenated LeBron, Lakers eye return to NBA summit
LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers will launch their bid to return to the NBA summit on Tuesday with a new roster and a rejuvenated mindset after a badly needed break during their first full offseason in two years. While the NBA has rejected suggestions injuries spiked as a result of the compressed offseason, what is not in dispute is that injuries affected the Lakers more than any other team last year. “Last year after coming off the bubble, it literally took everything away from you,” James said during the Lakers’ recent preseason training camp. The extra rest may prove decisive for a Lakers roster which has the oldest average age (30.9) of any team in the NBA. While some have wondered whether the relatively advanced age of the Lakers roster might be the team’s undoing, head coach Frank Vogel prefers instead to emphasize the squad’s basketball IQ.
Mikaela Shiffrin hoping to play right cards during World Cup season and Olympics
When it comes to Alpine skiing and the Olympics, Mikaela Shiffrin says she’s not much of a gambler, as the American all-rounder prefers Lady Luck to play no part in her results. Over the course of an Alpine World Cup season, that good and bad fortune tends to balance out. At an Olympics, however, you get one shot and everything has to go right in that moment, and for Shiffrin, that hasn’t always been the case. While double-Olympic champion has a nice ring to it, the results are less than expected from an athlete who has six world championships, 69 World Cup wins and three crystal globes for winning the overall World Cup title. “Luck sways the Olympic results so much more than it does in any normal World Cup or when you look at the results for throughout an entire season.”

Yuta Watanabe looks set to make Raptors' opening night roster

Casey Martin Has Right Leg Amputated Due to Rare Circulatory Disease
Martin, the Oregon golf coach who successfully sued the PGA Tour for the right to use a cart because of a rare circulatory disease, had his right leg amputated in what he told Golf Digest was always going to be “my destiny.”Casey Martin and Tiger Woods play a practice round at the 2012 U.S. Open. Martin suffered from Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome, which restricted circulation in the lower portion of his right leg and made it virtually impossible for him to walk 18 holes. He still managed to practice and play well enough to earn a PGA Tour card for the 2000 season. Martin, a teammate of Tiger Woods on Stanford’s national championship team, has been the head golf coach at Oregon since 2006. “In many ways I exceeded what my doctors told me as a kid,” Martin told Golf Digest two weeks ago.

With Hope Waning, Who Can the Dolphins Blame?
Hope, even in small doses, is better than condemning yourself to a situation that was always going to be middling at best. If you’re the owner of the Dolphins, how do you factor last year’s 10-win season into the equation against what is happening now? Or do you blame this particular (relative when comparing Tagovailoa to Herbert) failure on factors outside of the coach’s control? He still seems like a coach who has command of a team that has followed him through some strange highs and lows. And that, regardless of the glimmers of hope, is the most damning part of where Miami finds itself right now.
New England Patriots show break-out potential in OT loss to Dallas Cowboys
We’re still, as a collective football society, getting used to the fact that the Patriots are no longer The Patriots. They are going to play a boring, guard-railed, hyper-conservative brand of football. They are going to lose games, like they did Sunday to the 5-1 Cowboys, that they would have won a few years ago. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick watches a play against the Dallas Cowboys during the second half at Gillette Stadium. When a team is perfect and methodical, we’ll always reflexively compare them to the Patriots, which means that this is not, by definition, a Patriots team.
WNBA Finals: Kahleah Copper, Chicago Sky seal first championship over Mercury
CHICAGO — For four bruising games, Sky forward Kahleah Copper was in perpetual motion. Seconds later as the final buzzer sounded with the scoreline showing Sky 80, Mercury 74, Copper, not surprisingly, accelerated again. “When something’s not going, she has other aspects that she brings to the game,” Chicago forward Candace Parker said pregame. It’s her effort.”For much of Sunday's contest it appeared as if the Mercury were going to send the series back to Phoenix. “For every off shooting game that she has, the next game is potentially going to be an explosive game,” Sky coach James Wade said.
New York Giants: Gettleman should sell off Barkley, players before trade deadline
If the promise of Joe Judge were real, the Giants wouldn’t be losing back-to-back games by 24 and 27 points, respectively. If Barkley is cleared to play by the time the Nov. 2 trade deadline, they should get what they can, which may still amount to more than a compensatory selection. Gettleman became a symbol of antiquated football decision making, when really, he may just have suffered from a public speaking perspective. The latter of which seems to suit Gettleman better. He bet big on large, powerful players at a time when NFL defenses were vulnerably thin and undersized.
Ed Orgeron: Inside coach's swift LSU football collapse, exit
When Tom Herman chose to coach Texas and not LSU, Orgeron, originally from about 100 miles south of Baton Rouge, landed his dream job. A record-tying 14 LSU players were selected in the draft, five of them in the first round. Since the completion of that season, LSU has gone 9–8, and the program’s two long-standing pillars—a strong, feisty defense and a lethal rushing attack—have cratered. “I mean, what are you supposed to say?” The friend acknowledges that “it all went downhill from there.”A couple of weeks later, LSU players staged their march. From a statistical standpoint, it was the worst defensive year in LSU football history.
Braves-Dodgers: Atlanta walks off again on Eddie Rosario single to take 2-0 NLCS lead
For the second straight night, the Braves and Dodgers appeared destined to head into extra innings. And for the second straight night, Atlanta delivered a clutch hit when it mattered most. Eddie Rosario drove a two-out single off of Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen that scored Dansby Swanson, as the Braves notched a walk-off win for the second consecutive game to take a 2-0 NLCS lead over the defending champs. The Dodgers jumped to a 2-0 lead two batters into the game thanks to a two-run homer by shortstop Corey Seager. The Braves had a 2-0 series lead over Los Angeles in last year's NLCS and eventually held a 3-1 series lead before the Dodgers rattled off three wins in a row to advance to the World Series.
Cam Newton: Former MVP reveals he's gotten COVID-19 vaccine, still wants to play
It's been nearly seven weeks since Cam Newton was released by the Patriots just before the start of the regular season. On Sunday, the former league MVP addressed the future of his career, asserting he still aims to play in the NFL. “Hell yea, I want to still play football," Newton said in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel. Following Newton's release, Patriots coach Bill Belichick denied that the decision had anything to do with Newton's vaccination status. Newton started 15 games for the Patriots last season, missing a Week 4 matchup with the Chiefs after testing positive for COVID-19.
Rory McIlroy Wins CJ Cup in Las Vegas for 20th Career PGA Tour Victory
Rory McIlroy, 32, is the 39th player to win at least 20 times on the PGA Tour, and it’s his fifth straight PGA Tour season with at least one win. LAS VEGAS — Rory McIlroy capped off a big weekend in Las Vegas on Sunday by surging past Rickie Fowler and holding off Collin Morikawa to win the CJ Cup at Summit for his 20th PGA Tour title. McIlroy is the 39th player to win at least 20 times on the PGA Tour, and it’s his fifth straight PGA Tour season with at least one win. It was similar to his first win on the PGA Tour in 2010 at Quail Hollow. McIlroy and Fowler in the final group were tied at 22 under going to the back when Fowler made another mistake.
Eddie Rosario, Braves sneak by Dodgers to take 2–0 series lead in NLCS
ATLANTA — The Braves barely won Game 2 of the National League Championship Series on Sunday. Then, on second baseman Ozzie Albies’s single to short right field, Rosario froze briefly to make sure the ball fell in. So when Dodgers second baseman Trea Turner opened the top of the ninth by taking perhaps his best swing of the month, most everyone in navy blue began to mourn. With two outs and shortstop Dansby Swanson on second, the Dodgers brought in closer Kenley Jansen to face Rosario. The Braves barely won Game 2.

There’s something to be said for pulling out a game like the Cowboys did in Foxboro, and especially when it pushes you to 5–1. But what’s incredible is that Baltimore has overcome the obscene rash of injuries they suffered in August and September. The Cardinals’ first touchdown in Cleveland came on a third-and-21 in which Murray extended the play until Christian Kirk came open.

Baker Mayfield is not the problem. But he’s not the solution either
For Cleveland, it was the same old nagging question: Is Baker Mayfield really good enough? It was the second straight week in which Mayfield went head-to-head with a team marshaled by one of the sport’s top young quarterbacks. And in both weeks, Mayfield was comfortably outplayed. Mayfield entered the game nursing a left shoulder injury, one that he reportedly reinjured during the fourth quarter. Cleveland’s plan of action is a fairly rudimentary one, on the surface, and it rarely shifts week to week.
‘Being me is enough’: Rory McIlroy revels in turnaround to win CJ Cup
Rory McIlroy put his Ryder Cup pain behind him to join a select band of players with 20 PGA victories with a one-stroke win in the CJ Cup in Las Vegas on Sunday. “To get to 20 wins here is a big achievement,” McIlroy, the 39th player to achieve the feat, said in his greenside interview. McIlroy earned his lone point through his consolation Sunday win over Xander Schauffele, when the US had already all but secured victory. After his CJ Cup win, McIlroy revealed he had almost decided to miss the tournament - and not play again this year - amid the depths of his Ryder Cup despair. “On the Saturday night of the Ryder Cup ...
Newcastle’s grand vision hit by reality of relegation battle with Steve Bruce’s authority eroded
During one of the many testing points of Sunday’s game, new Newcastle United chairman Yasir Al-Ramayyan again reached for his phone. It’s going to need to be recharged a lot over the next few weeks. This was someway removed from the grand vision the Saudi Arabian ownership no doubt have for this team, but it might well delay its realisation. Newcastle are in real danger of going down - and that’s even allowing for a managerial change and big signings. That certainly isn’t the grand vision that Staveley, Al-Ramayyan and the rest of the hierarchy will have imagined.
Lewis Hamilton explains recent Mercedes gains after back-to-back wins
Lewis Hamilton has admitted that Mercedes’ improved performance has surprised him following back-to-back wins in Russia and Turkey. Hamilton finished fifth after a late pit stop and trails Verstappen by six points in the drivers’ standings ahead of the United States Grand Prix this weekend. When asked about Mercedes’ recent gains, the seven-time world champion said: “We haven’t done anything to the car so I don’t really know why that is the case. "I think the two tracks that we’ve just driven on have maybe suited us a little bit more." It felt great this weekend and moving forwards, Valtteri did a great job.
Patrick Vieira was Arsenal’s spirit and soul who could never be replaced
They are the traits that form legacies, and few players in the Premier League era can claim to have wielded them quite like Patrick Vieira. They are, of course, the glorious evidence that solidifies greatness, but achievements alone are far from what made Vieira so great. But when Vieira joined Arsenal in 1996, handpicked as a teenager from AC Milan by Wenger, his quality was transformative and, perhaps, even era-defining. Thierry Henry might have been the star, but Vieira was Arsenal’s soul, the force of gravity around which everything revolved. “Patrick was Patrick,” he said at his pre-match press conference.

Guardiola insisted earlier this week that he does not use his dealings with the press to send messages to his players.
Red Bull hoping to break Lewis Hamilton’s ‘stronghold’ at high-altitude races
Red Bull principal Christian Horner is hoping the higher altitude in Mexico and Brazil will provide the chance to break Lewis Hamilton’s “stronghold” as the Formula 1 season approaches its nail-biting climax. Max Verstappen retook the lead in the drivers’ standings by six points in Turkey after finishing second, with a grid penalty leaving Hamilton trailing in fifth. The Mercedes car still seemed stronger than the Red Bull, though, with Valtteri Bottas claiming victory at Istanbul Park. “I think we know the next race in Austin has been a Hamilton stronghold for quite a few years now. “But then Mexico and Brazil, hopefully, the higher altitude races tended to be quite strong for us in the past, and then not really sure what to expect in the last three.
Chelsea FC: Edouard Mendy heroics highlight error of his Ballon d’Or shortlist omission

Right now that conversation is on why he was not on the shortlist for the Ballon d’Or. One imagines Mendy does not care about this beyond another strong performance that kept Chelsea in pole position.

Joe Rogan claims ‘corruption’ played part in Tyson Fury’s win over Deontay Wilder
Tyson Fury benefitted from “error or corruption” in his thrilling knockout victory over Deontay Wilder, UFC commentator and podcaster Joe Rogan has claimed. Fury defeated Wilder to defend his WBC heavyweight title and complete the pair’s trilogy in an instant classic in Las Vegas last weekend. Rogan has alleged that Fury was given a “long count” by referee Russell Mora, who he said paused his count to tell Wilder to go back to his corner. But if for any reason he has to interrupt the count… you’re supposed to pick up the count where the ringside counter has it,” said the host of the Joe Rogan Experience. Former UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier was another observer to question the slow count but Rogan also conceded that Fury was the deserved winner.

(KNOE) - A fight broke out and, seconds later, the apparent sound of gunfire scattered a packed crowd attending homecoming at Grambling State University over the weekend. Grambling State officials and Louisiana State Police confirmed the mass shooting happened on campus around 1:30 a.m. Of the eight victims, only one was a student. “Our campus community worked tirelessly to ensure that our students and others were safe for homecoming activities,” Gallot said. They said GSU students come from 40 states and about three dozen foreign countries, so all kinds of people should be expected. “Everybody in other states, other countries knows the history and knows of Grambling State University.
Walk It Off, Again: Atlanta Widens Lead Over Dodgers
The Dodgers seized another two-run lead in the seventh thanks to Chris Taylor’s double, but then opted to bring 20-game winner Julio Urias in from the bullpen to start the eighth inning instead of handing things over to a conventional reliever. Like Scherzer before him, Urias did not have his best stuff and Atlanta ambushed him for three hits, making it 4-4 on Riley’s double over Mookie Betts’s head that allowed Ozzie Albies to score from first base. He added that Urias should be fine to start Game 5 on Wednesday, should the game be necessary, despite Sunday’s pummeling in which he surrendered hits to half of the batters faced. Suddenly, shockingly, the Dodgers are in deep trouble. They went 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position Sunday and 2 for 18 in Games 1 and 2 combined.
NFL loaded with mediocre, poor teams 6 weeks into season
(AP Photo/Paul Sancya)Six weeks into the NFL season and each conference has only six teams with a winning record. A league that prides itself on parity is loaded with mediocre and poor teams. Five clubs have one win, the Lions are winless and four division races are all but over, barring major injuries to the first-place teams. The Bills would surpass the combined win total of New England (2-4), Miami and the Jets with a victory at Tennessee on Monday night. ___Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter at https://twitter.com/robmaaddi and his work can be found at https://apnews.com/search/robmaaddi___More AP NFL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/nfl and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL

Just a couple of weeks ago, Sister Mary Bride was cheering on the Steelers in a roomful of nuns at the Motherhouse.
Larson 1st into NASCAR's championship 4 in a comeback season
FORT WORTH, Texas - (AP) -- The first driver in NASCAR's championship four is the one everyone else was already expecting to race for the Cup title in the season finale. This has been quite a comeback season for Larson, the 29-year-old California native who wasn't even racing in NASCAR at this time last year. Along with his eight Cup wins and 16 other top-10 finishes this season, Larson also won at Texas in June, in the $1 million, non-points All-Star race. Already 42 points above the cutline before Sunday's race, Larson said then that he wasn't exactly comfortable with that. So that's good”Three of the late restarts Sunday came after incidents involving Hamlin, Truex and Logano.

New technology offers anonymous way to report abuse, doping
The germ of the thought for Chadwick came when he played at Rice, where a pair of players left after accusing administrators of discrimination. “I found myself in the crosshairs of not knowing what was going on, and wondering, if they were going on, why they weren't uncovered and addressed sooner?" He contacted more than 200 administrators in university athletic departments, asking them what systems they had in place to receive complaints or concerns from athletes. Overall, there was terrible participation.”Chadwick's first iteration of his system allowed athletic departments to conduct end-of-season surveys from players. The feedback the ADs received was jarring: Tales of NCAA violations, drug use, hazing, sexual assault.
W Series title race: Battle of Britons pair set for race of their lives
It is new territory for Chadwick, who led the inaugural W Series championship from day one in 2019, and never lost her grip on it. After her stellar teens, the 28-year-old spent four years off the track due to lack of funding before W Series came calling. “Alice manages it exceptionally well,” says W Series performance coach Sarah Harrington, who also works privately on strength and conditioning with Powell. PersonalitiesDavid Lowe, the W Series racing coordinator, says the pair are meticulous in their work with their engineers, but their styles do differ. When it counts, she’s focused.”Alongside working for her father’s plumbing business, Powell mentors 18-year-old reserve W Series driver Abbi Pulling.
Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action
In the Guardian app, tap the yellow button at the bottom right, then go to Settings (the gear icon), then Notifications. Against Brentford he was again a spectator in his own team, touching the ball 18 times in 76 minutes. But there is a disjunction between player and system, and a gathering problem that Thomas Tuchel is struggling to solve. The league return of Tariq Lamptey, who played half an hour at Carrow Road, should give them fresh impetus. “You take two of the dominant players out of any team in the league and they feel it,” said the Leeds captain, Liam Cooper.
‘Our sport can be safe and exciting’: NFL points the way for dealing with concussion
The incident, from the NFL game in London on Sunday 10 October, led to a call being made downstairs from an independent neurologist to the game officials – and to Patterson being checked immediately for concussion. When Sills arrived at the NFL in 2017 it had just experienced an unwelcome record of 190 concussions in the regular season. Sills says that around half the NFL’s concussion protocols now start when a player on the field reports a concussion – which would have been unthinkable a decade ago. “We have more work to do not only to prevent concussion but to reduce avoidable head contact. And when it comes to the NFL, I believe that our sport can be safe and exciting at the same time.”
Fern Whelan exclusive interview: 'Female players now have their own safe space to report concerns'
As the Professional Football Association’s first executive for equality, diversity and inclusion in women’s football – a position she has taken up just six months after giving birth to her first child – Fern Whelan has her hands full. “It’s probably bigger than us and the PFA,” Whelan, the former Brighton player, says. “Obviously, the players are in the public eye a lot more – a couple of years ago Georgia wouldn’t have gotten that abuse. Retirement offered time for reflection, which has become a buzzword for women’s football of late after it was rocked with allegations of sexual abuse in America, Australia and Venezuela. I really lent on them.” Now, she says, is the time to give back by helping to elevate the female game.
Rory McIlroy wins 20th PGA Tour title in first appearance since tearful Ryder Cup
Las Vegas is famous for effecting rapid switches in fortune and so it proved for Rory McIlroy on Sunday night. Suddenly, the Northern Irishman’s 2021 does not seem nearly so bleak after he fought off a quality field to win the CJ Cup and its £1.3m first prize. "The Ryder Cup was huge, it really was," McIlroy said. But after I won my singles on the Sunday I thought: 'Go to Vegas, and try to build on this little bit of a breakthrough that I've had.' If Saturday’s 62 at the Summit Club was McIlroy at his finest then Sunday reminded that he is a natural born winner.

How Cameron Norrie wore down Indian Wells opponents to win title - and what comes next
Cameron Norrie become the first British player to win tennis's 'fifth slam' at Indian Wells, beating Nikoloz Basilashvili on Sunday night in three sets. Norrie's triumph continues something of a boom for British tennis following Emma Raducanu's historic US Open success, with Joe Salisbury also adding another doubles title in New York. Here, Simon Briggs analyses how Norrie got the better of Basilashvili and what lies ahead for him now he is an ATP title winner. During the first set, especially, Basilashvili’s forehand kept screaming into the backboard with such force that it could have drilled a hole. “I managed to turn it round today,” Norrie said, “especially after things didn't go my way early on.

Cameron Norrie: Britain’s new number one male and Indian Wells winner
Cameron Norrie’s journey to Indian Wells champion and the British number one ranking is an international story of improvement, endurance and competitive desire. By dispatching Diego Schwartzman to reach his first ATP Masters semi-final in Indian Wells on Friday, Norrie guaranteed he would overtake Dan Evans in the standings. The 26-year-old is hardly a new name on the scene but his low-key nature and steady rise up the rankings mean his profile is nothing like that of his fellow British number one Emma Raducanu. Born in South Africa to British parents, the family moved to New Zealand when Norrie was three and settled in Auckland where he grew up. His 46 match wins put him ahead of Novak Djokovic and his run in Indian Wells means he is firmly in the picture to qualify for the elite eight-man ATP Finals.

Leicester strip bare Manchester United’s flaws to reveal Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s limitations
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men arrived in the East Midlands on Saturday afternoon level on points with Manchester City. Solskjaer’s charges have not operated with any degree of control, surety and collaboration as seen by the true title contenders in this division. Despite having 64% of the ball at Southampton, United registered only one more shot on target than the hosts in a 1-1 draw.

Unstoppable Mohamed Salah is starting to operate in a world of his own
It is an ability reserved only for the world’s best players, who operate on a different plane and live by their own parameters. No matter how common their extraordinary feats, the moments don’t become normalised, the otherworldly nature meaning the sensation can’t be dulled. After picking up the ball just inside the penalty area, four players stood between Salah and Ben Foster’s goal. The question now is whether Salah has in fact began to inherit the mantle of being the world’s best player. He has scored 11 goals in his past 10 games but that only scratches the surface of his influence.

Red Sox’s Eduardo Rodriguez ‘100 percent’ after COVID-related heart trouble
BOSTON — A feel-good story takes the mound for the Red Sox on Monday night at Fenway Park, in that Eduardo Rodriguez says he feels good. “I’ve been throwing 30-plus starts this year,” the left-hander, who will start Game 3 of the American League Championship Series against Houston for the Bosox, said Sunday afternoon.

Dodgers’ Justin Turner hit by pitch after ‘stinger’ ends playoff start streak
ATLANTA — Justin Turner has become synonymous with October baseball, so his absence from the Dodgers’ starting lineup during Sunday night’s 5-4 loss to the Braves suggested something beyond his recent offensive drought was at play. Turner had started 77 consecutive postseason games for the Dodgers, dating to 2014. He entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and was hit by a pitch. Turner, whose 13 playoff homers are the most in franchise history, entered the day 3-for-28 (.107) this postseason. Justin Turner is hit by a pitch during the Dodgers loss to the Braves on Sunday night.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin calls officiating decision for replay review 'an embarrassment'
PITTSBURGH — Mike Tomlin was pretty hot about the decision to review whether Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf caught a pass in the final seconds of the fourth quarter. “I just hated it,” the Steelers coach said after a 23-20 victory was achieved in overtime on Sunday night at Heinz Field. Instead, Metcalf tried to gain extra yardage and Steelers linebacker James Pierre forced the fumble, which was recovered by Seahawks receiver Freddie Swain. The Seahawks hustled to set up for Geno Smith to spike the ball with three seconds left. Yet just imagine how steamed Tomlin would have been if the Steelers had lost.
Steelers Keep Winning but Pittsburgh Has a Ben Roethlisberger Problem
Joe Sargent/Getty ImagesThe Pittsburgh Steelers are 3-3 and still in the thick of the AFC North in spite of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. In the victory, Roethlisberger threw for 229 yards and a touchdown but averaged a pitiful 5.7 yards per attempt. Roethlisberger simply didn't maintain ball security, with Seattle in prime position at Pittsburgh's 35-yard line to capitalize. Fortunately for the Steelers quarterback, his defense bailed him out by knocking the Seahawks out of field-goal position. The Steelers did so with the help of Watt's sack on Seattle's initial overtime drive to push the Seahawks out of Pittsburgh territory.

The NBA at 75: From a very modest beginning, to a behemoth

It is through the efforts of sporting pioneers like Podoloff that the NBA has become an everyday part of the American sporting scene.”By 1949, the NBA had turned a corner. “That’s what this country is all about and should be about,” NBA great and Basketball Hall of Famer Jerry West said.

Colorado woman, teen die after two vehicles collide on I-70
GOVE COUNTY, Kan. — A teen girl and a woman from Colorado died after their vehicles collided on Interstate 70 in western Kansas on Saturday and several other people were hurt.

Three children, ages 10, 7 and 4, who were riding in the Suburban were hospitalized after the crash with minor injuries. A 46-year-old man from Pawnee, Okla., who was riding in the Hyundai also suffered minor injuries.
Inside Line: How Raffi Quirke could energise England the way Faf de Klerk sparks South Africa
Drawing parallels between emerging players and established internationals can be distracting and unhelpful. That said, it feels fairly safe to compare Raffi Quirke to Faf de Klerk for two reasons. First off, Quirke seems strikingly humble and unlikely to let hype or complacency blow him off course. Secondly, Quirke has worked closely with De Klerk in training. And this stands out because De Klerk has caused us all to think slightly differently about the scrum-half position.
Courtney Lawes ready to be at the heart of new-look England
Courtney Lawes insists he is ready to step out of the leadership shadows and deputise for Owen Farrell as England captain this autumn if his country calls. “To be given a more important leadership role with England is obviously a great honour, and I am going to continue to help Faz as much as I can and we will see how we go,” Lawes said. “Not a lot of people on the outside obviously see my leadership role, but that’s not what it is there for. I am really excited for the boys and to see how our new tactics and team strategy going forward works out. Yet the casualties have since done everything they can to force their way back into contention, and Jones will have been impressed by their response.
Patrick Vieira could yet become Arsenal's main man as connection with fans remains strong
The Arsenal fans were not serenading any of their players, or indeed their current manager. Instead they were singing the name of Patrick Vieira on repeat, first in the concourses and then in the stands after the match had begun. It was a strange moment, to hear the fans of one club chanting the name of the manager of another Premier League team in London. It might have felt rather uncomfortable for Arteta, too, given his own efforts to forge a strong bond with the Arsenal supporters. And yet this is the reality of Vieira’s relationship with Arsenal, the club he left in 2005.

The FA requested a personal hearing in the case, which is scheduled for today via videoconference. England manager Gareth Southgate has expressed concern over a supporter ban at Wembley (Rafal Oleksiewicz/PA) (PA Wire)Any ban would only apply to UEFA competition matches.

Andrew Thomas having return cut short could bring major Giants trouble
And the Rams’ four sacks and seven quarterback hits might become the norm if left tackle Andrew Thomas misses any more time with foot injuries. After not playing last week because of a left foot injury, Thomas injured his right ankle at the bottom of a pile with 10 minutes left in the second quarter and did not return. Thomas had offseason surgery on his left ankle. Peart replaced Thomas and promptly was beaten for a strip-sack that he compounded by not scooping up the fumble. “He’s going to be a really good player in this league, and I think he’s starting to show that.”

The Giants were trailing the Rams 28-3 at the half Sunday at MetLife Stadium when I walked out to the stands to visit a friend who’d taken his family to the game. My friend had been a longtime Giants season-ticket holder before canceling his tickets following the infamous Odell Beckham Jr. urinating-dog leg-lift sideshow in 2017. But Sunday was a nice fall day and there was still slim hope for a respectable Giants season, so he made the trek from Connecticut with his wife and two kids to take in Rams 38, Giants 11 — a game that wasn’t even as close as the lopsided score indicated. As we spoke, my friend didn’t seem as bothered by the Giants losing as much as how they were losing.

Mayfield, Hunt injured as Browns battered in loss to Cards
CLEVELAND (AP) — Baker Mayfield slowly walked out of FirstEnergy Stadium with his left arm immobilized by a sling. The Browns took a beating in a 37-14 loss on Sunday to the Arizona Cardinals as Mayfield reinjured his non-throwing shoulder and running back Kareem Hunt suffered a potentially serious calf injury. Mayfield uttered an obscenity when asked how his shoulder felt, but the Browns starting quarterback was adamant that he wouldn't miss any time and will play Thursday night against Denver. Also, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had to leave with a shoulder injury and rookie linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah hurt his ankle. For it to happen on kind of a simple pass play that he's just going over the ball, it just sucks.

Just like that, Atlanta has a stunning 2-0 lead over the Dodgers in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series.

He pitched well into the fourth inning, when Joc Pederson, the former Dodger whose pearl necklace has become the latest in rally fashion here in Cobb County, caught a curveball out over the plate with a man on. He hit it 454 feet to right field to tie the score at 2, staring it down until it landed, then hollered at his teammates when he got back to the dugout. The message, at least by an amateur reading of what the broadcast cameras caught, was something along the lines of “I’m a bad son of a gun” — but less suited for national television.

How much will the Raiders ultimately pay Jon Gruden to leave? It depends if he he wants to fight
The unspoken bond, the one that had the entire NFL buzzing, was the 10-year, $100 million contract delivered to Gruden to guide that vision. “If I can’t get it done, I’m not going to take their money,” Gruden later told USA Today. Somewhere in all of this, Davis still owes Gruden a lot of guaranteed money for the remaining six years of his contract. What really matters is whether Davis wants to pay Gruden that guaranteed money, and whether Gruden wants to raise a legal fight about it. And while Gruden didn’t get it done with the Raiders, there’s still money for the taking if he wants it.

LETTER: Vaccine mandate for Allegiant Stadium should be dropped
Erik Verduzco / Las Vegas Review-Journal @Erik_VerduzcoOnly four teams in the NFL currently require proof of vaccination to enter their stadiums, and the Las Vegas Raiders is one of them.

We should strive to get rid of that rule immediately so anyone can enjoy our new stadium.

Los Angeles went on to beat Tampa Bay in the World Series, while the Braves stewed for another shot. The series resumes in Los Angeles, where Game 3 is set for Tuesday night.
Spain's Badosa beats Azarenka to capture Indian Wells title
Paula Badosa demonstrated her mental toughness to claim the title in her Indian Wells debut with a hard-fought, three-set victory over two-time champion Victoria Azarenka on Sunday. But the 32-year-old Belarusian fell behind early in the final set tiebreaker and couldn’t recover. An unforced error by Azarenka created set point and Badosa overpowered her with a blistering cross court forehand winner to end the marathon set. Despite losing a grueling first set, Azarenka looked like the fresher player at the beginning of the second set. Azarenka smacked an ace to get to set point and then closed it out when Badosa hit a backhand long.
Chris Greaves leads charge as Scotland stuns Bangladesh in T20 World Cup
Chris Greaves played a starring role as Scotland shocked Bangladesh with a six-run win on the opening day of the Twenty20 World Cup on Sunday. Greaves’ 28-ball 45 guided Scotland to 140-9 and he then took two key wickets with his leg spin to hold Bangladesh to 134-7 in their first-round match in Muscat. Greaves, who earlier rescued Scotland from 53-6 with his batting, sent back Shakib Al Hasan, for 20, and Mushfiqur Rahim, for 38 to dent Bangladesh’s chase. Bangladesh spinners Mahedi Hasan and Shakib justified their captain’s decision of bowling first by taking regular wickets, but Greaves gave Scotland crucial runs with his late cameo of 45. Greaves, batting at number seven, hit back with four fours and two sixes as Scotland plundered 53 runs from the last 30 deliveries.
Lions rookie Yutaro Watanabe outduels Eagles' Masahiro Tanaka
Rookie Yutaro Watanabe threw six scoreless innings, and Takeya Nakamura launched a two-run home run for the Seibu Lions, who survived a late rally to beat the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles 6-5 on Sunday. A two-run rally in the final frame threatened to undo Watanabe’s work before Ryosuke Moriwaki replaced Reed Garret with two outs and the bases loaded. Nakamura chased Tanaka, a former MLB All-Star with his two-run big fly that capped a four-run rally in the fifth. Tanaka gave up five earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five in 4? innings. He went 2-for-4 to pace the Lions’ offense along with Genda, who finished 3-for-4 with a run and two RBIs.

Major League Baseball will require teams to provide housing for minor league players
Major League Baseball announced Sunday that owners had unanimously decided to begin providing housing for minor league players, an issue on which the league was facing public pressure from players and advocacy groups. "In mid-September, the owners discussed the issue of player housing and unanimously agreed to begin providing housing to certain minor league players," MLB said in a statement. "It was this unprecedented behavior – minor league players unifying and utilizing their collective voice – that ultimately upset the status quo." 'NOT RIGHT':Advocacy group says Phillies minor leaguers reprimanded for speaking outThe league has improved salaries for minor leaguers, which MLB says is part of a larger effort to "modernize" the minor league system. "In 2021, we increased the salaries for minor league players by 38-72%, depending on level, and significantly reduced travel requirements during the season."
'Life keeps throwing punches': Cowboys QB Dak Prescott explains postgame walking boot
FOXBOROUGH, Mass.— Dak Prescott hobbled into the postgame press conference room, his smile big and his shoes mismatched. “Let’s knock it out.”Injuries didn’t plague Prescott throughout the three hours and 25 minutes of game time. But on the game’s final play, a 35-yard touchdown to wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, Prescott rolled out left to escape the pocket. It was on that play, the Dallas Cowboys said, that Prescott appears to have strained his right calf. “Life keeps throwing punches and I’m going to keep throwing them back.
Justin Turner scratched with neck injury for Dodgers
APATLANTA (AP) —Third baseman Justin Turner is not in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ lineup for Game 2 of the NL Championship Series because of a stinger on the right side of his neck. Turner, a Dodger stalwart who played in 79 postseason games, aggravated his neck in batting practice before Game 1. He went 1 for 4, but manager Dave Roberts said he could tell Turner was bothered during Los Angeles’ 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves. Turner was available to pinch hit on Sunday, and Roberts said he will mostly likely be back in the lineup for Game 3 in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Turner hit .050 in the Division Series against San Francisco, but Roberts said recent difficulties did not play into his thinking to keep Turner on the bench.
Joe Judge got lucky after inexplicable Daniel Jones decision
The score was Rams 38, Giants 3, it was early in the fourth quarter, and Joe Judge had long decided to keep throwing Daniel Jones to the Rams, who could easily have been confused for wolves. Joe Judge walks off the field at MetLife Stadium after the Giants’ loss to the Rams. “I gotta do a good job finding ’em.”When Thomas (ankle) went down early in the second quarter, that left Jones (2019) as Last No. Sterling Shepard lost his footing on Jones’ second interception. Even when Judge had turned into Riverboat Joe going for it fourth-and-1 at the Giants 41 in the first quarter, Jones was stuffed on a keeper for no gain.

Mark Davis on Jon Gruden’s emails: “We don’t stand for it”
Raiders owner Mark Davis has come a long way from having no comment about the resignation of coach Jon Gruden. “Listen, the Raiders stand for diversity, inclusion and social justice,” Davis said. The emails that came out are not what we stand for and so Jon Gruden is no longer head coach. We don’t stand for it.”One of the “talking heads” to whom Davis apparently was referring is Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Paula Badosa triumphs in battle royal with Victoria Azarenka for Indian Wells title
In a women’s final match that, upon further review, might be ranked as one for the ages, newcomer Paula Badosa beat cagy veteran Victoria Azarenka. The score was 7-6 (5), 2-6, 7-6 (2), and if that alone sounds like a battle royal, it was. AdvertisementThis was classic David versus Goliath, not to mention the longest women’s match ever at Indian Wells and the longest on the WTA Tour this year. “It was the only option I had if I could win.”In Azarenka’s news conference, it was suggested that this was, in the minds of many, the women’s match of the year. “It was really a deserving final match; a lot of fight out there.
Keeler: No Chucky? No problem. Even without Jon Gruden, Raiders still humbled Broncos. And had “a lot of fun” doing it.
Team Without A Coach 31, Team With Vic Fangio 24. “It sucks not hugging (Jon) Gruden after a game like that,” Raiders quarterback Derek Carr gushed after throwing for 341 yards and two scores in Las Vegas’ 34-24 win over the Broncos at Empower Field. “We knew, with Henry, people are going to play him different, 30 (more) yards downfield than they play other people,” Carr continued. A march that ended with a 31-yard touchdown throw from Carr to Kenyan Drake that put the visitors up 16-7. A victory that came on the afternoon in which iconic former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan got inducted into the Ring of Fame.
Las Vegas Raiders galvanized by Jon Gruden’s downfall
The Las Vegas Raiders were determined not to let Jon Gruden’s undoing lead to their own downfall. “In this business there’s always crazy things going on, especially with the Raiders,” said defensive end Maxx Crosby, who was in on all five sacks of Teddy Bridgewater. Ever since I got here there’s always things going on. “Everyone’s talking, ‘What are the Raiders going to do? Offensive coordinator Greg Olson was masterful in his first play-calling duties for Las Vegas since Carr’s rookie season in 2014.

I really went all out, heh?”So what do they have to say about men’s fashion at Country Thunder? The 'classic country' look is in for men, but no fringe“Men who come to Country Thunder are your classic country boys,” she added. Fielder and McNeil are both from the Midwest so dressing up country every day would feel a little bit fake they said, but at Country Thunder?
Kiszla: After committing worse sin in Broncos Country with home loss to Raiders, can Vic Fangio survive as coach?
Tom Cruise, much less John Elway or Mike Shanahan, isn’t walking through the door at Broncos headquarters. This reeling Denver team either wins its next game, or the whole thing blows up. And make no mistake, Denver was embarrassed by a Las Vegas team that had been shook to its core by the resignation of coach Jon Gruden. The Vonster and his mates, allegedly elite, gave up a whopping 8.2 yards per snap to Las Vegas. The Broncos feted Shanahan at halftime, honoring him with his rightful place in the Ring of Fame.
Maxx Crosby leads dominant effort for Raiders defense
Defensive end Maxx Crosby tuned out the noise of one of the craziest weeks in Raiders history to finish with three sacks, six tackles, a tipped pass and one tackle for loss. Raiders defensive end Maxx Crosby says he is happy that the team was able to get the win over the Broncos for interim head coach Rich Bisaccia. “In this business, there’s always crazy things going on, especially with the Raiders,” said Crosby, laughing. The Raiders had 17 quarterback hits on Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who threw three interceptions and lost a fumble. Crosby and fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue are forcing pressure off the edge, which helps the interior defensive line also get a push.

Raiders' interim head coach Rich Bisaccia runs onto the field with his players to face the Denver Broncos during an NFL game at Empower Field at Mile High on Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021, in Denver. I’m guessing the weight of all those combined isn’t near what Rich Bisaccia felt this week. An interim head coach for the Raiders, Bisaccia oversaw one of the better performances by the organization in some time. The Raiders outplayed Denver in every phase en route to a 34-24 win before a subdued 75,104 at Empower Field at Mile High.

Broncos don’t have time to reflect after ugly performance
Baskow/Las Vegas Review-Journal) @Left_Eye_ImagesDENVER — The three straight wins the Denver Broncos had to start the season are starting to look more and more like fool’s gold. Sunday’s 34-24 home loss to the Raiders at Empower Field at Mile High dropped the Broncos back to .500 and had them looking for answers. Now, it’s difficult to point to an area the Broncos can hang their hat on as they try to right the ship. “We won three games and everybody’s, ‘Yay, yay, yay!” We lose three games and everybody’s down. I’ve got to find a way to make a play.”Miller said the fact they play on Thursday could be a blessing despite the ugly performance on Sunday.

Ilic’s late goal is good for a draw
Iliya Ilic slammed home a goal in the 95th minute to help visiting New Mexico United earn a 1-1 draw with San Diego Loyal SC at Terero Stadium on Sunday. “That was a playoff match for us,” United coach Troy Lesesne said in a post-match interview, “there’s no doubt about that. Playoff match, playoff atmosphere against a very good team and that’s what we need. The visitors outshot San Diego 15-12 and put eight shots on target to Loyal’s five.

What are the Patriots’ playoff odds at 2-4?
The Patriots opened a new era this season in more ways than one — not the least of which was kicking off their first 17-game schedule. Historically, only 9.3% of NFL teams that start 2-4 later make the playoffs, and none have won a title. At 2-4, Tennessee also benched then starting quarterback Marcus Mariota for Ryan Tannehill, who’s since becoming one of the NFL’s most efficient passers, and its very best off play-action. Including the 2019 Titans, only five 2-4 starts have ended in a playoff run since 2010. Good schedule luck was the same formula three 2-4 teams followed in 2015, when the Texans and Redskins won their respective divisions at 9-7, and Seattle earned a Wild Card spot.
LeFrancois, Wagner keep it real at Duke City Marathon

Five years ago, his Duke City Marathon time was just over 2 hours, 54 minutes. “Five years of running in between (the last Duke City race), it was a big jump,” LeFrancois said.

Cameron Norrie delivered a 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 comeback victory over Nikoloz Basilashvili on Sunday night in the Indian Wells final.

When Norrie, Dan Evans, Andy Murray and Emma Raducanu had assembled in the Californian desert a fortnight ago, few people were talking about him. But it was Norrie who set about this event with the same uncomplaining, unstinting effort he brings to every part of his life.

Kyler Murray throws for four touchdowns as Arizona Cardinals remain undefeated
“It was a rough week,” said Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph, who took on some of Kingsbury's duties.

Later, Hunt was not targeted on a pass play and the bruising back crumpled to the ground without contact. Joseph credited the entire staff and especially assistant receivers coach Spencer Whipple, who handled the communication to Murray. “The operation was very smooth, being on the road for us to not have coach Kliff,” Murray said.

In the end, talent trumped luck, and that’s how the Cowboys ended up beating the Patriots
The Patriots had luck, but the Cowboys had the talent, and the talent won out. ? Another game of Bill Belichick coaching scared on fourth down, with two key decisions working against the Patriots. The Cowboys’ offense went 2 for 5 inside the red zone, with as many turnovers as touchdowns (two).

Against the Cardinals, Hunt rushed 14 times for 66 yards and caught three passes for 12 yards.

New England Patriots continue to struggle with identity in 35-29 loss to Dallas Cowboys
Six weeks into the season, the Patriots are in the midst of an identity crisis. The past doesn’t matter, what those guys did in the past won’t help us,” team captain Devin McCourty said after the team dropped a heartbreaking overtime thriller to the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night, 35-29. “These last few weeks, we’ve been having close games. In the two games that have pitted the Patriots against top-tier talent during the season, Tampa Bay and Dallas, Jones has looked sharp and poised. On Sunday, those plays came in overtime, and the Patriots defense sounded disappointed with their execution down the line.

Tennis-Britain's Norrie tops Basilashvili to win Indian Wells title
– Cameron Norrie battled back to defeat Nikoloz Basilashvili 3-6 6-4 6-1 in the Indian Wells final on Sunday and become the first British man to win the Masters 1000 tournament. It appeared an upset was in the works when the hard-hitting Basilashvili took the first set but Norrie regrouped in the second, breaking the Georgian at love to force a decider. In the third set, the left-handed Norrie broke early and saved three break points on his serve to take a 3-0 lead as unforced errors began to pile up for Basilashvili under the lights in the Southern California desert. Norrie sealed the win when Basilashvili sent a forehand long on championship point to collect the biggest win of his career. Britain’s Andy Murray, Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski have all previously played in the men’s finals at Indian Wells but finished runner-up.
Bucks celebrate title, Nets go without Irving as NBA opens
The Greek superstar, a two-time NBA MVP, averaged 30.2 points, 12.8 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 1.2 blocked shots and 1.0 steals a game last year in the playoffs as the Bucks ended a half-century title drought. The Nets have been part of the NBA off-season's biggest drama with the loss of Irving for refusing to have a Covid-19 vaccination. As a result, the Nets decided the star guard will not be part of the team at all rather than be available on a part-time basis. Brooklyn still offers formidable talent with two-time NBA champion and 2014 NBA MVP Kevin Durant up front and 2018 MVP and three-time scoring champion James Harden in the Nets backcourt. James, a four-time NBA MVP, is chasing his fifth NBA crown.
Rejuvenated LeBron, Lakers eye return to NBA summit
James, however, is confident that the extra rest since last season will benefit the Lakers more than most. "Last year after coming off the bubble it literally took everything away from you," James said during the Lakers' recent pre-season training camp. - Oldest roster -James says he has noticed a marked transformation in energy levels during the Lakers' preparations for this season. The extra rest may prove decisive for a Lakers roster which has the oldest average age of any team in the NBA, coming in at around 30.9 years per player. While some have wondered whether the relatively advanced years of the Lakers roster might be the team's undoing, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel prefers instead to emphasise the squad's basketball IQ.
Man goes on trial over plane death of footballer Sala
The plane crashed into the sea near the Channel island of Guernsey, killing Sala, 28, and pilot David Ibbotson. After travelling to Cardiff to complete the deal, Sala returned to France to collect belongings and bid farewell to his Nantes teammates. Initial search operations for the player and pilot were suspended in the days after the single-engine plane went missing. Two months after Sala's body was discovered, his father Horacio Sala died of a heart attack in Argentina. The Air Accidents Investigation Branch said both the pilot and Sala were affected by carbon monoxide poisoning before the crash.
Britain's Norrie beats Basilashvili to claim Indian Wells title
Britain's Cameron Norrie celebrates his victory over Nikoloz Bsilashvili of Georgia in the final of the ATP Indian Wells MastersAdvertising Read moreIndian Wells (United States) (AFP)Cameron Norrie's breakthrough season reached a high point in the California desert on Sunday with a 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 win over Nikoloz Basilashvili to become the first Briton to win the ATP Indian Wells title. Norrie rallied from a set down to earn his career best 47th win of the season and is the first player from Britain to lift the trophy, achieving what former finalists Andy Murray, Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski failed to do. This is Norrie's second title in his sixth ATP final of the season after winning his maiden crown earlier this year in Los Cabos. The victory will also propel him into the top 20 in the world for the first time in his career, and move him past Daniel Evans to become the new British No.
S. Korean regional derby set in AFC Champions League semifinals
Two K League 1 clubs and regional rivals, Ulsan Hyundai FC and Pohang Steelers, will clash in the semifinals of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League on Wednesday. The kickoff is 7 p.m. at Jeonju World Cup Stadium in Jeonju, 240 kilometers south of Seoul.

Browns' Baker Mayfield says injured shoulder 'feels like (expletive),' but he expects to play Thursday night
CLEVELAND — Baker Mayfield arrived to his postgame news conference Sunday night with his left arm in a black sling and his non-throwing shoulder giving him trouble again. “Feels like (expletive),” Mayfield said Sunday after the Browns fell 37-14 to the Arizona Cardinals at FirstEnergy Stadium. Despite the injury, Mayfield said he “absolutely” expects to play Thursday night when the Browns (3-3) host the Denver Broncos (3-3) in a game Cleveland needs to win to keep its Super Bowl expectations from vanishing. Mayfield suffered a partially torn labrum in the same shoulder Sept. 19 against the Houston Texans and has been wearing a harness ever since then. The starting quarterback had his left shoulder pop out twice more after Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt hit him on a strip-sack with 6:26 left in the third quarter.
Opinion: When the coach questions team's heart at halftime, you know it's another Giants disaster
If the heart of a team is being questioned by the head coach at halftime, that's when you know things are not going well. Ryan and the Giants were booed off the field in the second quarter, into halftime and twice early in the third quarter. He's yet to fulfill those promises 22 games into the tenure of the second head coach brought here under his watch. It won’t get there in time to help you if you don’t fix it yourselves." "We’re in Week 6, so to turn around and start tapping out now — I don’t know what kind of mentality other people have, I don’t quit things, these players don’t quit things.
Paula Badosa Outlasts Victoria Azarenka to Win at Indian Wells
INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — In its usual March dates, the BNP Paribas Open has been a launching pad for big talent in recent years. Naomi Osaka won the title in 2018 and then won the U.S. Open by upsetting Serena Williams in the final. Bianca Andreescu won the title in 2019 and did the same. At 23, Badosa is older than either Osaka or Andreescu were when they made their breakthroughs at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. But she was once a teen prodigy herself and is now doing justice to her talent.

Kiké Hernandez’s red-hot playoffs may bring Red Sox a Yankees-like dilemma
I’m working on it — it’s a big case — although I have solved one mini-mystery: You know who Kiké Hernandez is for these Red Sox? Whether he’s the guy you want to then reward for excelling on such terms, well, the Red Sox have one more year before they must worry about it. The Red Sox signed Hernandez, entering his age-29 season, to a two-year, $14-million deal in February. Hernandez played 47 games at second base and eight at shortstop this season, helping the Red Sox considerably. Can Hernandez push the Red Sox farther, give the Red Sox more bang for fewer bucks?

McIlroy pulls away to win CJ Cup at Summit in Las Vegas
Rory McIlroy capped off a big weekend in Las Vegas on Sunday by surging past Rickie Fowler and holding off Collin Morikawa to win the CJ Cup at Summit for his 20th PGA Tour title.

The worst NFL call you’ll see all week
The Arizona Cardinals are on their way to a win over the Cleveland Browns on the road, but the game couldn’t end before we witnessed the worst call we’ll all see this week. Murray gets rid of a ball 15-20 yards down the field to eventually be touched by Browns defensive tackle Malik Jackson —Roughing the passer was called. And to make matters worse, Jackson was pushed into Murray, which was the only reason there was any physicality to this play in the first place. This is still supposed to be football that is considered the most physical sport in the world outside of rugby and hockey, depending on who you ask. New rules come about for good reason, however NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has to find more effective ways to implement them.

Week 6 Booms and Busts: KC eventually shows up, WFT does not
Only Mahomes can throw for 397 yards and two touchdowns and have the NFL public shrug — it wasn’t his sharpest game. Tyreek Hill finished with 18.1 fantasy points in the Chiefs' win against the WFT. The one streaming pick WFT clicked on was tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (4-58-1), and in a full PPR format, J.D.

LeBron James and Russell Westbrook willing to share on-court director duties
They are both at their best with the basketball in their hands, when they are dictating the actions on the court, when their teams have looked for LeBron James and Russell Westbrook to be the directors. Now they are teammates on the Lakers and are seeking a seamless transition when it comes to ballhandling duties. In the view of Lakers coach Frank Vogel, James and Russell are willing partners. So, Vogel was asked, has he seen Westbrook pull back some with having the ball in his hands? Davis is also a part of this mix with James and Westbrook.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Vikings running back Dalvin Cook said he was “tired” after Sunday’s game at Carolina. And me, I’m just making sure I’m sharp on a lot of stuff, making sure I’m conditioned.

Guregian: If this is the real Patriots, the season’s not lost
But with Jerry Jones’ team invading Foxboro, it was like having the big reveal. A team that’s going to make things interesting heading into the December, and perhaps beyond. This was an inspired effort, and then some, for the Patriots, who hung in against a better, more talented football team. It was a perfectly thrown ball, with Jones going right back at Diggs. He’s more than capable of throwing the ball downfield, and that’s going to speak volumes going forward.

Dallas Cowboys escape with OT win over New England Patriots in wild finish in Foxborough
Lamb caught it at the 10, racing toward the end zone for the game-winning 35-yard score. Dallas Cowboys 35, New England Patriots 29. If you wanted the Cowboys turning the ball over not once but twice in the red zone, you got that too. Officiating questions surfaced as they tend to, fans wondering whether Prescott had actually snuck into the end zone on third-and-goal attempt from the 1-yard line. Patriots coach Bill Belichick had lauded the Cowboys’ pick-your-poison offense during the week and ultimately ceded 567 yards.
Opinion: Ravens teach Chargers a lesson on what makes a bona fide NFL contender
We like raising eyebrows, in a good way. They had a short turnaround to heal and prepare for a Chargers team that had won three straight and lit up a talented Browns defense for 47 points a week ago. Chargers coach Brandon Staley recognized as much. That’s what it is; we lost to a really good team on their field. “I think the experience we gained for all of our players the first six games have been meaningful, because we played six really good teams.
New York Giants booed again and Joe Judge challenges the heart of his team in loss to LA Rams
If the heart of a team is being questioned by the head coach at halftime, that's when you know things are not going well. Ryan and the Giants were booed off the field in the second quarter, into halftime and twice early in the third quarter. He's yet to fulfill those promises 22 games into the tenure of the second head coach brought here under his watch. It won’t get there in time to help you if you don’t fix it yourselves." "We’re in Week 6, so to turn around and start tapping out now — I don’t know what kind of mentality other people have, I don’t quit things, these players don’t quit things.

But, obviously, when you lose top guys like Strome and Kakko, it hurts your team some. But it gives other people opportunities, so it’s not an excuse that, ‘Oh, they’re missing Kakko, they’re missing Strome, they’re not going to win to tonight.’Kaapo Kakko was placed on the IR on Sunday.

Taj Gibson likely to see expanded Knicks role with uncertainties at center
Taj Gibson started all four of the Knicks’ preseason games, and he just may be tabbed to do so — or at least retain an expanded role — in their season opener Wednesday against the Celtics. Taj Gibson Charles Wenzelberg/New York Post“He’s really done a good job, to his credit, of practicing well, coming back at night and getting a second workout in,” Thibodeau said. Gibson has attempted just 133 shots from long distance, and he’s made just 21.8 percent during his career. Now he’s comfortable, he’s put a lot of extra work into it. So, it’s something that I think the way Obi has grown, I think it will allow us to do that more.”

Derek Carr sliced up the Denver defense for 341 yards and two touchdowns, Maxx Crosby made three sacks and the Las Vegas Raiders started the post-Jon Gruden era with a 34-24 thrashing of the bewildered Broncos on Sunday. The Raiders began by ending an 11-game streak without a score on their opening drive. They never let up, burning the Broncos' beleaguered secondary that couldn't keep up with Carr and his targets. The Raiders failed to score on their first possession in the previous 11 games for the longest active drought in the NFL. Daniel Carlson's 50-yard field goal put Las Vegas up 10-7, but he hit the right upright on a 43-yarder as the Raiders failed to capitalize on cornerback Brandon Facyson's interception at midfield.

Huge Second Half in Washington a Turning Point for Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs
Already in a significant early hole at 2-3, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs trailed a defensively stacked Washington Football Team 13-10 midway through the third quarter on the road. Chiefs 31, Washington 13 thanks to a 21-0 run in the final 20 minutes of regulation.

Broncos up-down drill: Highs and lows for Denver against the Raiders
Sadly, that was also their last touchdown drive until they were down 21 points in the fourth quarter. Consider the play-action dump-off for one yard in the second quarter the latest example. An official tossing a hanky from 30 yards for a Noah Fant holding penalty late in the second quarter? Otherwise, it’s just a waste of a timeout — make that TWO timeouts — that you might need late in the fourth quarter.

They sent wide receiver Damiere Byrd out to return a punt and used backup running back Artavis Pierce as their kick returner.

Azarenka came around the net and hugged the 23-year-old Spaniard. “I remember when I was 14, 15 years old seeing you,” Badosa told Azarenka after raising the crystal trophy. Azarenka missed a backhand to give Badosa a set point and the Spaniard cashed in with a backhand winner to take the set.
Vikings defense dominated Panthers until it didn’t
For more than 58 minutes of regulation time Sunday, the Vikings’ defense was dominating against the Carolina Panthers. “We’ve got work to do there.”The 96-yard drive got started after the Vikings yielded a fourth-down conversion when the Panthers were down to their last play at their own 4-yard line. I would anticipate my guys being a little bit smarter in that situation.”Kendricks said the defense was determined to stop the Panthers regardless of situation. Before that, the Panthers’ only touchdowns came on an 18-yard drive after a Minnesota fumble and on a blocked punt return. Yet, because of the late drive, the Vikings were left scratching their heads at how such a dominating defensive effort ended on a sour note.
Chris Tierney scores twice, Senators beat Stars 3-2
OTTAWA, Ontario - (AP) -- Chris Tierney scored on two second-period power plays and Filip Gustavsson made 32 saves in the Ottawa Senators' 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Sunday night. Nick Paul also scored for Ottawa and Connor Brown had three assists to reach 100 for his career.

Raiders begin post-Jon Gruden era with 34-24 win at Denver
DENVER - (AP) -- Derek Carr sliced up the Denver defense for 341 yards and two touchdowns, Maxx Crosby made three sacks and the Las Vegas Raiders started the post-Jon Gruden era with a 34-24 thrashing of the bewildered Broncos on Sunday. The Raiders began by ending an 11-game streak without a score on their opening drive. They never let up, burning the Broncos' beleaguered secondary that couldn't keep up with Carr and his targets. Teddy Bridgewater threw a season-high three interceptions and lost a fumble, negating his 334 yards passing and three TDs. Daniel Carlson's 50-yard field goal put Las Vegas up 10-7, but he hit the right upright on a 43-yarder as the Raiders failed to capitalize on cornerback Brandon Facyson's interception at midfield.
Gophers see opening in Big Ten West, but can they be consistent enough to thread it?
The door to the Big Ten West Division title swung open Saturday. And the Gophers’ 30-23 win over Nebraska put the U in second place at 2-1, only one-half game out of the top spot. Their run-pass balance on offense dried up in the second half, but their defense did enough. Those two categories, along with missed tackles, are considered vital by Fleck and deemed to win 78 percent of games. “We know the way we are built right now, what’s happening, we could have a lot more narrow games,” Fleck said.
Vikings’ K.J. Osborn scores winning touchdown, mom scores the ball
The 2020 fifth-round draft pick out of the University of Miami, Fla., continues to make plays for the Vikings. Afterwards, Osborn entered the postgame interview room cradling the football — and telegraphing where it was headed. We said, ‘He’s had a great OTA and a great camp.’ I’m just happy it’s now showing up in games. “He’s worked really, really hard. Facing third-and-3 at the Minnesota 43, Cousins found Osborn for a 13-yard first-down pass that moved the Vikings to the Carolina 44.

By Stephen HawkinsAssociated PressFort Worth, Texas — Kyle Larson claimed the first of four championship-contending spots in NASCAR’s season finale with a dominating victory at Texas on Sunday to start the round of eight in the playoffs.

Bryony Frost's accusations lay bare ugly secrets of the weighing room
Frost, 26, became the first female jockey to win a Grade One jump race at the Cheltenham Festival in 2019. He alleged Frost’s riding had caused his horse, Cillian’s Well, to fall and be fatally injured in a race at Southwell. “I recall being in the men’s changing room and he would stand in front of me naked,” she reportedly alleged. As I became more established in the weighing room and gained more confidence, I spoke out. Both Frost and Dune declined to comment on the case or any of the allegations in the leaked report.
Jamie Redknapp defends Newcastle's new Saudi-led takeover despite human rights concerns
'I understand the human rights problems, it stares you in the face,' Redknapp told Sky Sports on Sunday. (Newcastle fans) will be well aware, but the truth is, I’m not sure football fans, the majority, really care who owns their club. Critics have, however, repeatedly accused the Saudis of 'sportswashing' - spending huge money on hosting sporting events in a bid to boost the country's reputation despite its poor record on human rights. 'Anthony Joshua goes to fight in Saudi Arabia, the super fight between Joshua and Tyson Fury was probably going to head over to Saudi Arabia. Yes, like you said, hearing the stories (about Saudi Arabia), there should be some outrage.

What jockey Robbie Dunne is alleged to have told rival Bryony Frost in bullying row
Explosive claims about intimidation and bullying towards jump jockey Bryony Frost rocked the racing world on Sunday. BRYONY FROST Frost has risen rapidly to become one of jump racing’s best-known personalities, as much for her bubbly, media-friendly personality as her riding. The 26-year-old said that her father, Grand National winning jockey Jimmy Frost, had told his daughter to report the incident to the BHA. The leaked report also includes claims from Frost that ill-feeling between her and Dunne stretches back to before 2017 when Frost was still riding as an amateur jockey. In her statement to the BHA, Frost claimed: ‘Robbie cantered up to me and said something on the lines of, “You’re a f***ing whore, you’re a dangerous c***”, and “If you ever f***ing murder me like that again, I’ll murder you”.
UK and Ireland's likely-doomed bid to host the 2030 World Cup will be discussed with MPs on Tuesday
The likely-doomed England-led FIFA World Cup 2030 bid will be discussed with MPs on Tuesday by UK Sport and BBC chiefs. MPs are set to discuss the UK and Ireland's likely-doomed bid to host the 2030 World CupIt is understood that a UK-Ireland bid for Euro 2028 is favoured by the power-brokers in Switzerland instead, who would fully support such a move – if England and its partners were agreeable. Also at the committee hearing, FIFA's bidding process will also be outlined to the committee. It announced the bidding process for 'potential UEFA EURO 2028 hosts' last week, where it left the door open 'in case of more than two joint host associations'. The Football Association of Ireland 'remain committed to the ongoing feasibility study in regard to a potential bid for the 2030 World Cup'.
Newcastle: Fans were drinking to celebrate their new owners, until sobering reality kicked in
Newcastle supporters may well have been drinking since before midday in celebration of their new Saudi owners, but the party that followed was a sobering reality of how far their club has fallen. Come the end they could not pass up the opportunity to let the new decision-makers know exactly how they feel. ‘He’s out of our club,’ they sang, a twist on the old favourite, ‘Get out of our club’, plus expletives. But top of the hit parade were a couple of new entries - ‘We’re the Saudi Mags’ and ‘We’re richer than you’. It felt apt that, at the same time, the hangovers of those beneath the headdress were probably just kicking in.

In Newcastle, Songs Drown Out the Hard Questions
That is soccer’s great skill, of course, its ability to bend and twist and adjust to any new reality. The biggest club in the world imploding because of its own hubris? A yearslong plot to change the face of the sport that is destroyed in 48 hours? One of the world’s largest investment funds buying a club that employs Joelinton so as to burnish the image of a repressive autocracy? As one, the fans rose and turned to face the directors’ box, cheering and applauding for 20, 30 seconds.
Leonard Williams tries shooing off Giants boos: ‘Don’t like that’
The Mets introduced the thumbs-down to booing, and now the Giants have started shooing booing. I don’t want to be hearing boos from our own fans. “I don’t think anyone deserves to be put down no matter who you are,” Williams said. The reaction is based on the Giants having the worst record in the NFL (19-51) since the start of the 2017 season. Three weeks ago, Giants co-owner John Mara was the target of loud boos during Eli Manning’s number retirement ceremony.
Washington Football Team hasn’t earned the benefit of the doubt
Except that’s not how this loss will be digested, not at all. This is a franchise that doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt, because over time, it hasn’t earned the benefit of the doubt. This loss should be processed thusly: Washington (2-4) faced the only defense in the NFL that was statistically worse than its own — and gained 76 second-half yards. It forced Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs into three first-half turnovers — and managed just one touchdown. Just when the overriding question across the entire NFL appeared to be, “What’s wrong with Mahomes?” he threw for 397 yards and directed a Kansas City operation that racked up 499.
Even the best Giants nostalgia can’t hide how terrible current team is
Every few weeks, whenever the Giants open the gates at MetLife Stadium, they let Eli Manning walk onto the field at halftime. Sunday, he lugged a shiny Lombardi Trophy, his old coach, Tom Coughlin, at his side. Charles Wenzelberg/New York PostWhich was easy to understand. Charles Wenzelberg/New York Post“There’s a lot of things we have to fix,” Joe Judge, the present Giants coach, said after this miserable 38-11 bloodletting was complete. “We’ve got to be better as a team.”The weekly nostalgia doesn’t do Judge or his team any favors.

There were two laps remaining on the final restart, and Larson was able to stay out in front of teammate William Byron.

The 12 cars were among the most ever involved in a single incident at Texas, which hosted its 41st Cup race since the 1997 debut with a 13-car crash at the start of the race.
Murray throws 4 TD passes, unbeaten Cardinals batter Browns
Murray connected with DeAndre Hopkins for two TDs, and Arizona's shifty quarterback came up with a clutch play whenever the Cardinals needed one. The Browns were trailing 23-14 when Cardinals star defensive end J.J. Watt chased down Mayfield and forced a fumble by sweeping out the QB's legs. After his fumble, Murray made the Browns pay by throwing a 9-yard pass to a wide-open Hopkins to put the Cardinals ahead 30-14. Later, Hunt was not targeted on a pass play and the bruising back crumpled to the ground without contact. Desperate for a positive play, the Browns got one on the final snap of the first half as Mayfield completed a 57-yard TD pass to Donovan Peoples-Jones.

Bittersweet loss as Bears progress, but self-sabotage in 24-14 defeat by Packers
This is a different category of embarrassment for the Bears than what they’re used to against the Packers. Ultimately, the 24-14 loss at Soldier Field just gets flung on the mountain of other defeats. Unlike last season, when the Bears were obviously overmatched, this was winnable — If only the Bears could stop self-sabotaging. The Bears began with Robert Quinn committing a neutral-zone infraction on the very first snap and kept stumbling with disastrous consequences. It all added up to Rodgers beating the Bears again despite a modest game: 17 of 23, 195 yards, two touchdown passes.

Packers' running back tandem 'got shifty' on Bears' vaunted defense
Jones initially caught Aaron Rodgers’ pass midway through Sunday’s third quarter with his back to the Chicago Bears defense.' The play, a textbook reminder to not celebrate a touchdown too early, left Jones feeling sheepish. The Bears, like most defenses, entered Sunday determined to remove Davante Adams from the Packers’ game plan. In his fifth season, Jones has never been a more versatile playmaker, even scoring touchdowns on plays that aren’t designed for him. A run game like this wins in January.

“I still own you,” Rodgers said as he looked into the Soldier Field stands. “Sometimes you black out on the field — in a good way,” Rodgers said.

Dynamic duo: Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa both get top billing for Astros in ALCS
That's not the case with second baseman Jose Altuve and shortstop Carlos Correa, Houston's middle-infield combo who both shine equally bright for the Astros. This season marks their sixth postseason trip and they've helped the Astros to a fifth consecutive AL Championship Series where they're tied 1-1 with the Boston Red Sox. Game 3 is Monday night in Boston where the Astros will have to rely more heavily on Altuve, Correa and the rest of their high-powered offense after a rash pitching injuries. Though Altuve now sees Correa as an equal, Correa still looks up to Altuve like a kid who idolizes his older brother. Asked about Altuve, Correa reels off a list of some of his many accomplishments, which include the 2017 AL MVP, five Silver Slugger Awards and capturing the AL batting title three times.

Facebook will add 10,000 jobs in Europe to help build virtual worlds
If Facebook is going to become a "metaverse company," it's going to need talent — and more of that talent is on the horizon. The social network has unveiled plans to add 10,000 "high-skilled" jobs across the European Union over five years to build its virtual and augmented reality experiences.

In 2019, Facebook partnered with the Technical University of Munich to create an AI ethics research center. Nonetheless, the move hints at the long-term scale of the metaverse transition — Facebook is changing its overall direction, not just shuffling a few resources.

"I want to mention Chris Evans," Burrow said in his postgame press conference, when asked about how good the Bengals' running backs and tight ends have been this year. You see what he can do for us in the pass game; he got one-on-one and really, really ran a great route and scored a touchdown for us." "The production doesn't look crazy, but when you get a sawdust versus a pressure, that's usually where the sacks have come for us early in the season," Taylor said.

The game resumed after the fan was stabilised and taken to hospital, and the north east club confirmed later on Sunday evening: “Newcastle United can confirm that a supporter who required emergency medical treatment during the club’s Premier League fixture with Tottenham Hotspur at St James’ Park on Sunday is stable and responsive in hospital.

Emma Raducanu lines up trial with coach Esteban Carril as search continues
“It’s tough to have that conversation with anyone,” she said, when asked about the end of Richardson’s short tenure. The circumstances around Raducanu’s brief visit to Indian Wells, where she lost her first match since the US Open to world No 100 Aliaksandra Sasnovich, seemed less than ideal. Some tennis insiders believe that the rapid coach turnover in the Raducanu camp has made other potential signings think twice about taking up a role with her. Michael Joyce, who worked with Maria Sharapova for years, has gone so far as to describe the post as a “poisoned chalice”. Raducanu’s trip to the WTA 250 event in Romania will give her a chance to finally open her account on the WTA Tour, where she has played only three matches to date.

Do the Dodgers Have a Pitching Problem?
A lot will be made of the Dodgers’ opting to use eight different pitchers in Game 1. The Dodgers’ problem in Game 1, as was the case in their two losses to the Giants in the NLDS, was that they didn’t score. Los Angeles had 10 hits, including three doubles and a home run, but went 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. That said, scoring shouldn’t be a problem for the Los Angeles lineup, which led the National League with 5.12 runs per game. THE CLOSER from Emma BaccellieriAmong the more curious features of the Braves’ win over the Dodgers?
Mark Giordano: Fire and Rain
Giordano, 37 at the time and entering the final season of his contract in 2021-22, knew he was the odd man out. After 15 seasons in Calgary, Giordano arrives in Seattle as the Kraken’s oldest player and de facto team captain. Giordano broke into the NHL as a depth defenseman with the Flames by 2005-06, earning limited minutes and responsibility. Calgary outscored opponents 43-34 and outchanced foes 403-362 with Giordano on the ice at 5-on-5. So don’t be surprised if we see something memorable from Giordano as a founding member of the Kraken.

Robert Gamez holds the record for the longest time between wins on the PGA Tour at exactly 15 years, 6 months between his memorable 1990 Nestle Invitational win at Bay Hill and the 2005 Valero Texas Open. The victory was Gamez's second on the PGA Tour.

Raiders’ Mark Davis thinks Jon Gruden email leak is an NFL ‘hit job’
Mark Davis is reportedly playing the victim card after losing Jon Gruden as his coach. “He thinks the league office is out to get him,” a source who has spoken to Davis told CBS Sports. “He thinks it’s a hit job.”It remains a mystery as to who leaked the Gruden emails, in which the then-ESPN commentator wrote back and forth to then-Washington president Bruce Allen. Davis hired Gruden in 2018 while Allen was fired after the 2019 season. Raiders owner Mark Davis Getty ImagesMore than 650,000 emails were reviewed as part of the NFL’s investigation of WFT, but the majority have not become public.
Second half goes sideways as WFT is stuck with second straight defeat in 31-13 loss to Chiefs
Unlike in its first three losses, the first half gave Washington (2-4) hope of an upset of the favored Chiefs (3-3), who were beleaguered by turnovers and poor decisions, many of them by Mahomes. Washington had a pair of interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in the first half, but the momentum disappeared in the second — as did Mahomes’s struggles and Washington’s offense, which was held scoreless in the final 30 minutes.

The Rams (5-1) took advantage of two short fields provided by their defense for easy TDs in breaking the game open early against New York (1-5). Henderson also scored on a 2-yard TD run in the big second quarter and Matt Gay kicked a 32-yard field goal as the Rams beat the Giants for the third time in five seasons. After being stopped on their first two series, the Rams broke the game open in the second quarter.

Lamar Jackson Sets NFL Record for Most Wins Under Age 25 After Ravens Beat Chargers
Patrick Smith/Getty ImagesLamar Jackson set an NFL record with his 35th win Sunday, the most in NFL history for a quarterback under the age of 25, per ESPN's Jamison Hensley. Drew Bledsoe (32) was the only other player since the 1970 merger with more than 30 wins before the age of 25. Essentially, the only thing Jackson hasn't accomplished in his short career is winning a title. While Baltimore had already built a good team when he emerged as the starter in 2018, no young quarterback in NFL history has ever had as much consistent success. And given that Jackson doesn't turn 25 until Jan. 7, he'll have the chance to tack on 10 more wins to his record.

The win over Florida at home on Saturday made LSU 9-8 since beating Clemson in New Orleans for the national championship on Jan. 13, 2020. Orgeron received a six-year contract extension after the 2019 season. Orgeron went 6-2 as interim coach and was given a long-term contract by then-athletic director Joe Alleva. Scott Woodward, previously the AD at Washington and LSU, replaced Alleva at LSU in 2019.

After the NFL's historically ugly week, it's tough to care about Week 6
They may have even gotten an early start consuming the league's product, those who were masochistic enough to endure Jaguars-Dolphins from London. There were fantasy teams to follow and wagers to make, and just the seemingly insatiable desire so many have to tune in. Individuals in the highest reaches of the country's most profitable sports league being racist isn't news, not to anyone paying attention. (Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images)Then things got worse, or at least should have, for the league and its vaunted shield. It is their — meaning white men of means — league, and they are loathe to let anyone who isn't into their league.

Following the best start of his postseason career, Eduardo Rodriguez will get the ball for the Red Sox in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros at Fenway Park on Monday night.

Pivetta will be in the bullpen for the game, but is expected to start Game 4 on Tuesday if he’s not used in relief on Monday. “If we stay away from Nick, most likely Nick is going to start Game 4, but if we feel like we should use him, we will,” Cora said.

Chris Greaves stars as Scotland shock Bangladesh at T20 World Cup
All-rounder Chris Greaves was the hero as Scotland got their T20 World Cup campaign off to a dream start with a six-run victory over highly-fancied Bangladesh in Muscat. The 31-year-old Greaves, in only his second T20 international, top-scored in his side’s 140 for nine and then took two crucial wickets with his leg spin as Scotland held their nerve in a tense finish. Greaves then came to the rescue, hitting two sixes and four fours in his 28-ball knock to bring Scotland back into the contest. Earlier, Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan became the highest wicket-taker in men’s T20Is, overtaking Lasith Malinga’s total of 107 wickets. Greaves then removed the dangerous Mushfiqur Rahim for 38 and finished with two for 19 while Brad Wheal claimed three for 24.
Mosimane wants VAR after African giants Ahly denied 'clear penalty'
Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane (R) celebrates with star forward Mohamed Sherif (L) after the Egyptian club won the CAF Super Cup last May. Advertising Read moreJohannesburg (AFP)Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane says African football chiefs must prioritise introducing VAR after the CAF Champions League title-holders drew 1-1 at Gendarmerie Nationale of Niger in a last-32 first leg. But they were denied what Mosimane called "a clear penalty" before Moumouni Diori levelled for the Nigeriens on 75 minutes in Niamey. South African Mosimane, who has won the Champions League twice with Ahly and once with Pretoria side Mamelodi Sundowns, stressed the need to use VAR in CAF competitions. "African referees rarely give a second penalty kick to one team," he told reporters as Ahly launched a campaign to become African champions a record-extending 11th time.

In Belarus, subscribing to Telegram channels branded as ‘extremist’ may now get users in trouble

MLB in talks to launch nationwide streaming service for home games without cable TV
The National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League are also considering partnering with MLB on the new streaming service, sources said. The cable companies don’t have streaming rights but could retaliate by paying less to broadcast games if they don’t like the bargain, sources said. As for the teams, MLB’s streaming service would pay them based on viewership in their local markets. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, seen here at the 91st MLB All-Star Game, could promote a streaming option as non-threatening to cable subscriptions, sources said. Both MLB and Sinclair have plausible legal claims to the hometown-game streaming rights.
Dodgers vs. Braves prediction: Max Scherzer makes LA the pick
Max Scherzer said, “We can party hard tonight.” The Dodgers’ ace was shirtless and looking to celebrate after the Giants’ Wilmer Flores checked his swing, but was called out, sending L.A. to the NLCS. Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts gave Mighty Max a game to recoup, and he will start Game 2 on Sunday in Atlanta. The Braves’ Ian Anderson has made one start and was brilliant, shutting out the Brewers for five frames. We have a series bet on L.A. and believe their lineup will get to Ian (or the pen) while Scherzer keeps it close. If the Queen bet on the Astros, maybe she can have one last martini.

Gabby Petito’s parents said they were duped by a “quiet and polite” Brian Laundrie, thinking he would “take care of her” and keep her safe during the young couple’s trip out west. “He just seemed like a nice guy,” Petito’s mother, Nichole Schmidt, told Australia’s “60 Minutes” in an interview posted online Sunday. “I thought he would take care of her.”Petito and Laundrie embarked on the ill-fated trip on July 2, blogging about the trek on Instagram. Gabby Petito’s family have started the Gabby Petito Foundation to help victims of domestic violence and assist in other missing person cases. Gabby Petito’s stepfather, Jim Schmidt, also recalls Brian Laundrie being polite and well-liked by the rest of the family.
Vitek Vanecek, consistent on and off the ice, makes his case to be Washington’s No. 1 goalie
The team’s initial hope was both goaltenders could get into a rhythm and would be equally reliable when called upon, Murray said. But having an equal goaltending tandem in the NHL isn’t easy. Before Samsonov and Vanecek, Washington turned to Braden Holtby, who was part of the Capitals’ Stanley Cup-winning team. With two young goalies in Samsonov and Vanecek — instead of a proven veteran in Holtby — Washington faces different types of questions about its goaltending now, including how to split playing time.
76ers players believe Ben Simmons was dodging having to play in Game 7 against Hawks
Now we’re hearing Sixers players were insinuating the point guard was trying to avoid playing in Game 7 by pretending he was a covid risk. "Due to a possible exposure to a team masseuse, who’d returned an inconclusive COVID-19 test. Several players were questioned about whether they’d seen her that morning, but only Simmons said that he had." 76ers players watched their own teammate, who currently plays on a max contract, and walked away from the arena believing he’s scared to participate in the biggest game of the season. The Philadelphia 76ers need to get Simmons out of there before these rumors grow.
Irving's vaccination stance looms large over NBA season
The loaded Nets roster includes Kevin Durant and James Harden but the team will be at a disadvantage without sharp-shooting point guard Irving, a seven-time All-Star who won a title with Cleveland in 2016. "It was a bold move by Brooklyn," former NBA coach and current ESPN commentator Jeff Van Gundy told reporters on a call. The NBA has said players who are unable to compete due to local mandates will miss out on pay. POINT GUARDS ON THE MOVEIrving is not the only point guard who has generated attention during a busy offseason, which saw a flurry of moves at the sport's most important position. Playing alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis, Westbrook gives the Lakers a "legitimate chance" to win it all, Jackson said.
Ravens shut down Herbert, Chargers in 34-6 victory
(AP Photo/Gail Burton)BALTIMORE (AP) — Lamar Jackson threw for 167 yards and a touchdown, and the Baltimore Ravens frustrated Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers in a 34-6 victory Sunday. Los Angeles punted on its first three possessions, then turned the ball over on downs. The Ravens’ methodical approach — and the Chargers’ difficulty stopping the run — led to a significant gap in time of possession.

Aaron Rodgers to Bears fans after game-clinching TD run: 'I still own you'
The Green Bay Packers have now won five straight games this season and five straight over their longtime NFC North rivals. Aaron Rodgers threw for two scores and ran in the game-clincher late in the fourth quarter as the Packers beat the Chicago Bears, 24-14, at Soldier Field on Sunday. A fired-up Rodgers looked to throw on first and goal from the Chicago 6-yard line but found nothing open. Rodgers did his signature "belt" signature and then leaped up and had a little something to say to the Bears fans after the score. Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers looks across the field during the first half of an NFL football game Chicago Bears Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021, in Chicago.
Brandon Staley, Chargers see downside of 4th-down gambles in blowout loss to Ravens
For years, fans and analysts have screamed at their TVs and into microphones for NFL coaches to go for it on fourth down. The downside, obviously, is that it doesn't always work out. The Chargers made plenty of mistakes in Sunday's loss. Head coach Brandon Staley kept his offense on the field on four plays in the loss. Both of them failed and played a factor in Baltimore opening the game up.
Another report no Irving for Simmons trade talks, little Irving trade talk anywhere
Nothing has changed, and nothing is expected to change with Kyrie Irving in the near future. That has led some talking heads to suggest the Nets trade Irving, maybe for the 76ers Ben Simmons. But Philadelphia has zero interest in an Irving trade, and now comes the report an Irving trade anywhere is “dicey,” according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN on the Woj Pod, hat tip to Alex Strum of Nets Daily. All of that has led to no meaningful Irving trade talk around the league, and it gives no incentive for the 76ers to pick up the phone. Check out more on the Brooklyn NetsUpdate on roster cutdown day roundup: Kris Dunn, Marquese Chriss waived Durant on Kyrie Irving: “I am still positive that things will work...

It has already cost him his role on the NBA's best team and his pending $186 million contract is next. Rich Pedroncelli/AP ImagesKyrie Irving can't play with the Nets full-time because he's unvaccinated, so they are sitting him. According to reports, the Nets no longer intend to offer Irving a four-year, $186 million extension. The Brooklyn Nets' decision not to allow Kyrie Irving to play or practice with the team has left the future of the All-Star guard up in the air. In January, Irving left the team for undisclosed reasons, but was later seen at a birthday party, maskless, breaking COVID-19 protocols.
Adrian Wojnarowski describes the current trade market for Kyrie Irving
The regular season is only days away no progress has been made in getting Kyrie Irving back on the court. “I think the trade market for him is going to be very… I think it’s dicey,” Wojnarowski said. He wanted Brooklyn, he wanted Kevin Durant. Ben Simmons, Kyrie Irving, that’s this easy trade. They have not made that call to Brooklyn and I don’t know that they ever will.
NFL Winners and Losers: Carson Wentz starting to play well for Colts, and the Eagles don't mind
The first four weeks of the Carson Wentz experiment in Indianapolis looked like the last couple years of Wentz's time with the Philadelphia Eagles. Wentz looked sharp for the second straight week as the Colts blew out the Houston Texans 31-3. When the Eagles traded Wentz to Indianapolis, it was for a 2021 third-round pick and a 2022 conditional second-rounder. Had the Colts held on to win last Monday night at Baltimore, Wentz would be a buzzier topic of conversation. Carson Wentz had another strong performance in the Colts' win.
Should Tracy Walker III have drawn this taunting flag after big hit on Ja'Marr Chase?
But the Lions would start their possession on Cincinnati's 38-yard line thanks to a taunting flag drawn here:Did you miss it? His secondary mate Tracy Walker III picked it up at the point of the interception. Tracy Walker III's taunting penalty backed the Lions out of chip-shot field goal range. The Lions didn't score on their ensuing possession that would have started in chip-shot field goal range without the infraction. It's obviously impossible to know what would have happened had the Lions started at Cincinnati's 23-yard line.

Sharks’ defenseman to have surgery, could miss up to two months
SAN JOSE — Defenseman Nikolai Knyzhov will have surgery next week to correct an unspecified lower-body injury and could miss the next two months, Sharks coach Bob Boughner said Sunday. Knyzhov’s surgery is scheduled for Oct. 22 and Boughner said he could be out for eight to 10 weeks. “But he’s also comfortable in the fact that hopefully, the surgery is going to correct the problem and he’s not going to have to worry about it anymore. The smooth-skating defenseman averaged 16:26 of ice time as he was moved up to the second pair with Erik Karlsson. “I thought (Middleton) had a real strong game,” with Karlsson, Boughner said.

Mikal Bridges, Phoenix Suns agree to four-year, $90M rookie extension
The Arizona Republic confirm Sunday through league sources ESPN's report that Bridges has agreed to a four-year rookie extension for $90 million, fully guaranteed, as Monday is the deadline for rookie extensions for first rounders in the 2018 draft class. Had the Suns and Bridges not come to an agreement on an extension, Bridges would've been eligible to become a restricted free agent after this season. However, it'll never reached that point as Bridges' extension will kick in next season as he initially signed a four-year deal as a rookie out of Villanova for $17.6 million. Suns center Deandre Ayton is also up for a rookie extension as ESPN reported last week contract talks had stalled over the Suns' reluctance to offer the first overall pick in the 2018 draft the five-year rookie max extension worth $172 million.

The Browns will not have their starting RB and the league's second-leading rusher Nick Chubb, CB A.J.
In one play, Bears and Justin Fields show why they don’t stack up to rival Packers
Bears quarterback Justin Fields lined up for a shotgun snap at third-and-7 from the Packers’ 47 in the first quarter Sunday at Soldier Field. From the top right tip of the wishbone “C” painted at midfield — his own 45 — he heaved a prayer into the end zone. Safety Danell Savage tracked the ball, caught it in the back of the end zone, got two feet down and tumbled out of bounds. Throwing on a free play, Fields needed to be absolutely sure a penalty was called. The Bears then punted on their next four possessions, running 24 plays for 76 yards — an average of 3.16 yards per play.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers yells ‘I still own you’ to Bears fans after TD run
Aaron Rodgers will never be able to wrest ownership of the Bears from the McCaskey family, but maybe he doesn’t need to. As he celebrated in the southwest corner of Soldier Field, he yelled at the fans, “I still own you. I still own you.”It was Rodgers’ third touchdown of the game, having thrown for one in the second and third quarter as part of a 17-0 run by the Packers.

Golden Knights reportedly unwilling to trade Peyton Krebs
The Sabres reportedly are asking for forward Peyton Krebs in any potential trade for Jack Eichel, and that’s a deal breaker for the Golden Knights. Vegas Golden Knights left wing Peyton Krebs (18) during a team practice at City National Arena in Las Vegas, Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2021. For the Golden Knights, it might be too steep.

20 things we learned in Miami Dolphins’ 23-20 loss to Jacksonville Jaguars
For the 15 years of the NFL’s international series, the league’s teams most concerned with winning have been allowed to exempt themselves from having to lose an eighth of their home schedule to a game in a foreign country not including Bills home games in Canada). Nineteen of the league’s teams have avoided taking a single game (of the 33 -- 30 in London) from in front of their home crowd. The Packers are the only team to have not played a game of any sort, while the Patriots, Cowboys, Giants, Jets, Bills, Bears, Steelers, Colts, Washington, Ravens, Cardinals, Seahawks, Titans, Eagles, Panthers and Texans have participated without the home-game reduction. Basically, it means a franchise will be guaranteed to lose a home game every eight years in the rotation. The Dolphins have played in London five times since that 2007 London debut by the NFL (the Giants “at” Miami), giving away three home dates.
Hyde: Dolphins prove they’re most pathetic organization in football in breaking Jags’ losing streak | Commentary
Let’s be clear: This is the kind of loss in a struggling season that gets people fired. Ross can’t fire himself. But he’s going to have a decision coming up for Grier and Flores. It’s stunning the fall of Flores. He got five wins out of a nothing roster his first year, 10 wins out of an unsteady roster last season and — one win and a lot of questions so far this year.
Red Bulls again beat NYCFC to bring rivals even on points in standings
The Red Bulls scored early against New York City FC and mostly cruised to a 1-0 victory Sunday at Red Bull Arena, giving them seven points from three matches between the rivals over the last month. But there’s been a side effect to the Red Bulls’ dominance in the series this year — NYCFC’s campaign is completely unsettled. The Red Bulls remain in ninth, behind NYCFC only on goal differential as the clubs own identical 11-1-7 records (40 points) with five games to play. Cristian Cásseres Jr. had the lone goal of the game, giving the Red Bulls the lead in the third minute. Red Bulls keeper Carlos Coronel made two saves for his 11th shutout of the season.

Reports: LSU, coach Orgeron to part ways at end of season
LSU and coach Ed Orgeron have agreed to part ways after this season, according to multiple media reports Sunday, 21 months after he led the Tigers to a national championship with what is considered one of the greatest teams in college football history. Sports Illustrated was first to report that Orgeron would not return to LSU in 2022 but is expected to coach out the rest of the season for the Tigers. The win over Florida at home on Saturday made LSU 9-8 since beating Clemson in New Orleans for the national championship on Jan. 13, 2020. Orgeron received a six-year contract extension after the 2019 season. According to USA Today, he is scheduled to make $9 million this season, the second-highest salary in major college football behind Alabama's Nick Saban.
Henry, Titans keep batting away questions over his workload
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - (AP) -- Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has a simple test for how sore he is after plowing through and over NFL defenders. Henry not only leads the NFL in rushing with 640 yards this season, he also has 142 carries for the Titans (3-2). Henry is on a pace for 482 carries this season. Henry is averaging 128 yards a game with 58 yards in the opener the only time he's finished with fewer than 113. Titans running backs coach Tony Dews has never coached someone like Henry before and says this is a bit of a learning experience for him.

Reactions: Cincinnati Bengals cruise past Detroit Lions, 34-11, to move to 4-2
The Cincinnati Bengals had no trouble keeping the Detroit Lions winless this season, moving to 4-2 with a 34-11 road win behind three touchdown passes from quarterback Joe Burrow - plus another in the fourth quarter from backup Brandon Allen - and an impressive defensive effort to hold the Lions to a field goal and a late TD with the game out of reach. With his third-quarter touchdown pass to Joe Mixon, Joe Burrow joined Dan Marino as the only QB in his first or second NFL season to throw for multiple touchdowns in each of his team's first six games of the season. In addition, Bengals linebacker Logan Wilson had his fourth interception of the season. Bengals defensive end Trey Hendrickson gave Lions first-rounder Penei Sewell all he could handle. And running back Chris Evans scored his first NFL touchdown.
Analysis: What we learned from the Cincinnati Bengals' win over the Detroit Lions
The Cincinnati Bengals improved to 4-2 on the season as they defeated the winless Detroit Lions 34-11 on Sunday at Ford Field. Rookie wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase continues to make explosive plays for the Bengals' offense and caught four passes four passes for 97 yards. Evans, Cincinnati's sixth-round pick out of Michigan this year, recorded his first NFL touchdown in Detroit. Right guard could become biggest question moving forwardHeading into Sunday's game, it was unclear who would start at right guard for the Bengals. Carman then took over at right guard but suffered an injury in the third quarter and was carted to the locker room.
Stomped by Bengals, Lions are NFL's lone winless team
BOX SCORE: Bengals 34, Lions 11The Bengals had no such issues after fielding a punt and starting at their own 39-yard line. The tight end came wide open behind the Bengals coverage, but Goff sailed his intended target. Four plays into the fourth, the Bengals were back in the end zone when Burrow found tight end C.J. With the game well out of reach, the Lions drove 75 yards for their lone touchdown of the afternoon. Following the Jacksonville Jaguars' Sunday morning victory over the Miami Dolphins in London, the Lions are the league's lone winless team.
Powell man celebrates his 26th year of marriage by running in his first Columbus Marathon
On July 25, Rustagi and his wife Sonika Rustagi, 50, celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. As he enters his 26th year of marriage to his wife, Rustagi set his sights on completing, fittingly, all 26.2 miles of the marathon. Rustagi was one of about 8,000 runners competing in the first Columbus Marathon in two years after last year's event was cancelled because of COVID-19 concerns. "Here it is, the moment you've been waiting for," an announcer said around 7:30 a.m. to spectators lining Long Street in anticipation of the start of the 41st Columbus Marathon. Rustagi took up running as a hobby only two years ago when his friend introduced him to a local running group.
Hope, conflicted morality as Newcastle fans welcome Saudis
To approve the sale that stalled last year, the Premier League said it received “legally binding assurances that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will not control Newcastle United Football Club.” The corporate ownership structure of PIF counters that, although the Premier League won’t discuss that or why the guarantees are required. One complicating factor for allowing the buyout was the Premier League pursuing legal means to shut down a television piracy operation linked to Saudi Arabia that was bootlegging footage from Qatari-owned beIN Sports. The thawing of the wider Gulf diplomatic dispute this year led to beIN being informed it was no longer banned in Saudi Arabia, removing an obstacle for the change of ownership. How long it will be until footage of Newcastle celebrating a trophy will be beamed around the world remains unclear. The spending can’t begin until the January transfer window to strengthen a team in next-to-last place with three points from eight games and a manager in Steve Bruce who fans chanted will be “sacked in the morning."
Steve Bruce calls for clarity over future after defeat in front of new ownership
Asked whether he wanted clarity over his future, with the expectation remaining that he will be sacked, triggering a near £8million pay-off, Bruce said: “That’s what it needs. Every football club needs clarity. Right from the top right the way through to everything that makes a football club the way it is. We have still got our frailties as a team and it’s up to me in the near future anyway to hopefully get better. Newcastle are in a relegation battle but Bruce said this is nothing new for the club.
Spurs dominate unsettled Newcastle as Kane and Son brush off early scare
As half-time beckoned, the dawn of Newcastle’s controversial new Saudi Arabian-led era and the sight of Tottenham’s Harry Kane scoring a rather good goal faded into insignificance. As the spectator received emergency treatment, Andre Marriner led the players off the pitch for 20 minutes. Son Heung-min celebrates scoring Tottenham’s third goal just before half-time at St James’ Park. With Newcastle struggling to regain momentum, Spurs assumed near total control, something emphasised when a quick-footed Lucas Moura caught Isaac Hayden cold before finding Kane lurking in the penalty area. Unselfishly, Kane played a low pass across the six yard box for Son Heung-min to redirect the ball beyond Darlow.
Matthew Wright’s last-gasp kick gives Jacksonville welcome win over Miami
More than three hours of nerve-shredding, often sloppy, action led to one second remaining and a kick at the death, one Matthew Wright and the Jacksonville Jaguars are unlikely to forget. A win gives London’s nominal home team a glimmer of hope to build on after starting the season with five losses while Miami sink to five defeats and one win. On the other side Tua Tagovailoa’s return for Miami offered hope with two touchdowns to the receiver Jalen Waddle but it was not enough. Miami responded with a 91-yard touchdown drive as Waddle snagged a two-yard touchdown to give Miami the lead once more at 20-17. Miami were stuffed at the line on fourth down from one yard when they should have easily moved the chains.
Bryony Frost's accusations lay bare ugly secrets of the weighing room
Frost, 26, became the first female jockey to win a Grade One jump race at the Cheltenham Festival in 2019. He alleged Frost’s riding had caused his horse, Cillian’s Well, to fall and be fatally injured in a race at Southwell. “I recall being in the men’s changing room and he would stand in front of me naked,” she reportedly alleged. As I became more established in the weighing room and gained more confidence, I spoke out. Both Frost and Dune declined to comment on the case or any of the allegations in the leaked report.
Steve Bruce confident Newcastle can avoid relegation as big day ends in defeat
Steve Bruce surveyed the wreckage of Newcastle’s big day and insisted the club could drag itself out of another Premier League relegation hole. Asked if the club is in a relegation battle, Bruce, whose future remains the subject of intense speculation, said: “Have we not been in that for five of the last six years? To finish 12th and 13th, I found that very respectable for where we are at the moment. “If you have not won in seven or eight you come under pressure and that is the Premier League. The big thing is that we had a defibrillator and specialists over that side anyway, which has probably saved the man’s life, from what we’re hearing.
Louisiana shooting: At least one dead and multiple injured at campus homecoming
At least one person has been killed and several have been wounded in a shooting at Grambling State University in Louisiana.

Trevor Lawrence proud of Jacksonville Jaguars after ‘special’ London win
Trevor Lawrence was proud of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ battling performance against the Miami Dolphins as the number one draft pick celebrated his first professional win and the end of the second-longest NFL losing streak in history. “It means a lot, and obviously, like I said, we’ve struggled a little bit, but to get this win, have this moment going into the bye week, to do it here in London, it’s all just special. Two crucial kicks from Matthew Wright secured victory (Adam Davy/PA) (PA Wire)“I’ll always remember this one. Just proud of this team.”Jags head coach Urban Meyer admitted they were “desperate for a win” in London, where Miami counterpart Brian Flores took the blame for the defeat. Consistent ball first half, a little bit in the second half but we’re just not putting it together.
Vitesse fans involved in scary moment as they cause stadium stand to collapse during celebrations
There were scary scenes in the stands during a Dutch top flight game on Sunday as Vitesse fans caused a section to collapse as they celebrated their side's victory over NEC. The Arnhem outfit beat NEC 1-0 away, with Nikolai Baden Frederiksen scoring the only goal of the game in the first half. After the final whistle, the Vitesse players went over to celebrate with their travelling supporters at the Stadion Galfort. Many at the front fell downwards, with the players looking concerned. And as soon as that was confirmed the fans got back underway with their celebrations.

Advertising Read moreMuscat (AFP)Scotland skipper Kyle Coetzer on Sunday hailed Chris Greaves for his sacrifices that included delivering parcels for Amazon before he starred in the team's upset win over Bangladesh in the Twenty20 World Cup. The 31-year-old Greaves smashed 45 off 28 balls to lift Scotland from a precarious 53-6 to 140-9 in the first round match in Muscat. He then took the two key wickets of Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim with his leg spin as world number six Bangladesh managed just 134-9. He was delivering parcels for Amazon not long ago and now he's getting man of the match and playing against Bangladesh." The top two teams from Group B will advance into the Super 12 stage of the World Cup.
Three talking points from the Premier League
Advertising Read moreLondon (AFP)Manchester United long unbeaten record on the road in the Premier League is gone as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men were well beaten at Leicester to fall five points off the pace in the title race. Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City all won with the top three still separated by two points. Newcastle's new era under Saudi ownership also did little to aid their fortunes on the field as Tottenham won 3-2 at St. James' Park. Liverpool visit Old Trafford next weekend with Tottenham, City, Chelsea and Arsenal also to come in United's next six league games. For all the talk of how long it will take to bring back Champions League football for Tyneside, just avoiding the Championship next season would be a short-term success.
A sharp 'SNL' cold open knows the bigotry of NFL bosses didn't start with Jon Gruden
Another week, another case of the National Football League stumbling over attempts to explain and address the deep-rooted bigotry of one of its top names. By now, most of us know that former Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden is out of a job because he couldn't keep his hateful opinions on women referees, gay players, and racial justice protests to himself. That's what led Saturday Night Live to ditch some rather obvious political targets in favor of a cutting takedown of the NFL for its latest cold open. Here was a talented young quarterback who got pushed out of a career in sports when he used his very public platform to say something meaningful about racial injustice in the United States. All while management dipshits like Gruden — don't fool yourself into thinking he's alone here — snickered behind Kaepernick's back as the NFL held a torch to his career in pro football.
Ben Simmons practices with 76ers as saga takes another turn
It was only a practice — we’re talking about practice — but Ben Simmons was finally at one on Sunday. After holding out for most of training camp while seeking a trade, Simmons practiced with the 76ers on Sunday, three days ahead of their season opener. Rivers said he didn’t know yet whether Simmons would be ready to play Wednesday when the 76ers open their season against the Pelicans. Ben Simmons, seen here during a game last season, practiced with the 76ers on Sunday. Still not obviously game shape.
Ed Orgeron, LSU parting ways after 2021 season
Less than two years after leading LSU to a national championship, Ed Orgeron will soon be without a job. “The players didn’t want to play for him, the coaches didn’t want to coach for him.”After winning it all — with No. 1 pick Joe Burrow at quarterback — LSU went 5-5 in 2020 and is currently 4-3 this season. Orgeron has been at the helm of the Tigers since 2016, when he replaced longtime coach Les Miles. LSU is expected to pay over $17 million to buy out Orgeron’s contract, Fox Sports reported.
Live updates Jaguars end losing streak with last-second field goal
Burrow spent the week on “voice rest” after being taken to a Cincinnati hospital last Sunday as a precaution because of a throat contusion he suffered in the Bengals’ overtime loss to the Packers. Burrow did not stay overnight, but the 3-2 Bengals were taking no chances with the No. 1 player taken in the 2020 draft. He skipped his weekly news conference, being advised by the medical staff to speak as little as possible.
Live updates Chiefs lead Washington Football Team, 17-13, in second half
The Chiefs moved quickly into Washington territory and were in position to at least tie the game with a field goal when a fumbled snap led to Kansas City’s third turnover of the half. Patrick Mahomes picked up the ball, but rather than take a sack, the quarterback attempted to throw as he was being taken to the ground. His wobbly toss was easily intercepted by Bobby McCain.
Hope, conflicted morality as Newcastle fans welcome Saudis
As the van circled St. James’ Park again, Adel Al-Shammari, a Saudi studying at university in Newcastle, was watching in bemusement. "Just visit Saudi Arabia, ask the people there," Al-Shammari said. To approve the sale that stalled last year, the Premier League said it received "legally binding assurances that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will not control Newcastle United Football Club." The corporate ownership structure of PIF counters that, although the Premier League won’t discuss that or why the guarantees are required. How long it will be until footage of Newcastle celebrating a trophy will be beamed around the world remains unclear.

Cam Newton, eyeing NFL return, gets vaccinated against COVID-19: report
Former New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton has reportedly been vaccinated against COVID-19, a measure that could quicken the former league MVP’s return to playing in the NFL. Sources told the NFL Network on Saturday that teams in contact with Newton since his release from the Patriots were informed he has received the COVID-19 vaccine.

Florida Flop: Sunshine State falls out of the AP Top 25
The latest AP Top 25 failed to have a team from the state of Florida on the list for the first time since Nov. 20, 2011. The state has seven FBS teams — Florida, Florida State, Miami, UCF, South Florida, FIU and Florida Atlantic. Florida State and Miami are 2-4. “And we’ve got to get better.”During the statewide appearance streak that started in November 2011, Florida had been ranked 110 times, Florida State 90 times, Miami 59 times, UCF 47 times and USF 21 times.

Players from Newcastle and Tottenham have been talking about their reaction to the medical emergency which took place with a fan in the stands at St James’ Park on Sunday. Speaking to our partners in the UK at Sky Sports after the game, Reguilon and Harry Kane detailed what happened with the Newcastle fan and how the players intervened in the situation. Story continuesThe medical emergency in the crowd led to the game being stopped for a few minutes, as the medical staff at Newcastle brought a defibrillator across the pitch and into the stands to help with the situation. “The supporter who was in need of urgent medical assistance has been stabilised and is on their way to hospital.

Tottenham outclass Newcastle to dampen takeover party at St James’ Park
Newcastle’s new owners were left with little doubt as to the task ahead of them as they watched a 3-2 defeat to Tottenham in a game delayed for 20 minutes by a medical emergency in the crowd. Allan Saint-Maximin deftly rolled the ball into the path of the over-lapping Javier Manquillo and Wilson got across his marker to head the wing-back’s cross firmly past Hugo Lloris. Story continuesIf they were stung by the early setback, Spurs did not panic and gradually worked their way back into the game before launching a blistering response. Bruce’s men returned facing an uphill climb and they found themselves chasing shadows as Spurs, led by the hugely impressive Ndombele, continued to dominate. St James’ resounded to chants of “We want Brucey out”, which were repeated after substitute Jonjo Shelvey was dismissed for a second bookable offence with seven minutes remaining, with Eric Dier’s late own goal sparking fresh, but ultimately vain, hope.

‘Saturday Night Live’ Cold Open Riffs On NFL Fallout From Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden’s Resignation
Saturday Night Live opened with a riff on Raiders coach Jon Gruden’s resignation following the disclosure of homophobic, misogynistic and racist emails, using the incident to spotlight how the NFL is found wanting when it comes to its diversity record. “I think we can all agree that the emails sent by Jon Gruden were horrifying and deeply offensive, especially to me,” Goodell said. The R word. The F-ing R word. Both of them.”“Now Coach Gruden has asked to say a few words.
Jimbo Fisher leads group of 6 potential candidates to replace Ed Orgeron at LSU
He has done it with Chris Petersen (Washington), Jimbo Fisher (Texas A&M), Buzz Williams (Texas A&M) and Kim Mulkey (LSU). Woodward lured him to Texas A&M for a historic 10-year, $75 million contract that was fully guaranteed if A&M fired Fisher. Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher will be a hot name in Baton Rouge, despite his hefty Aggies contract. Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M: He solves two issues for LSU, which other than 2019 has been perpetually tortured on offense. He’d bring a similar profile of experience as Fisher as Franklin has 11 seasons at a high-profile job.
Why did the Jon Gruden situation come to a head when it did?
At some point during an investigation that began in July 2020 and that resulted in punishment being announced on July 1, 2021, Beth Wilkinson’s team discovered the Gruden emails. So when did the Gruden emails first surface, and what happened next? Then, “over the past few months,” a group of senior NFL executives reviewed more than 650,000 emails including the Gruden emails. By the time that meeting happened, the league (we’re told) definitely was aware of the Gruden emails. Why did the Jon Gruden situation come to a head when it did?

Now, if we could just convince fantasy leagues to reapportion the blame for interceptions ...[Update: Mahomes left another beach ball floating right before the end of the half.
Did the Packers get away with offsides on a Justin Fields interception?
Justin Fields looked like Aaron Rodgers for a minute early in the Chicago Bears' Week 6 matchup with the Green Bay Packers. With the Bears leading 7-0 and facing a third-and-7 at the Green Bay 47-yard line, Fields gave a nice hard count — and it appeared to work. Packers defensive tackle Kenny Clark clearly twitched and jumped into the neutral zone. This is the old Rodgers trick, something he's pulled off for years, including numerous times against the Bears in their many meetings. And the ball was intercepted in the end zone by Packers safety Darnell Savage.

Statistically speaking: Oregon Ducks rushing attack best of Mario Cristobal era
Both are by far the highest for UO since 2017, when Cristobal was offensive line coach. Oregon is averaging more plays per game (68.83) than last season (61.14), with the running game accounting for basically all of that increase. In the first game without CJ Verdell, Oregon leaned on Travis Dye for 19 carries for 145 yards and seven catches for 73 yards. Which brings us to the passing game. Even after a productive and accurate performance the Ducks are averaging 216.3 passing yards per game, their lowest since 2017, and the team’s 140.8 passing efficiency is on pace for UO’s lowest since 2009.

Ja'Marr Chase throws block on Joe Mixon's third-quarter touchdown for Bengals in Detroit
The Cincinnati Bengals took a 17-point lead in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Lions in Detroit on Joe Mixon's 40-yard touchdown reception from Joe Burrow. And rookie receiver Ja'Marr Chase threw a great block during Mixon's catch and run to ensure that Mixon reached the end zone. "What a great job by Ja'Marr Chase to get over there and get that block on (Lions safety) Will Harris at the end. There is the effort by Ja'Marr Chase to get over and throw the key block. Great hustle downfield," analyst Daryl Johnston said during FOX's broadcast.
Penei Sewell, Detroit Lions struggle to contain Cincinnati Bengals' Trey Hendrickson
Trey Hendrickson, in his first season as a defensive end for the Cincinnati Bengals, is doing everything in his power Sunday against the Lions in Detroit to prove that the Bengals made the right call selecting receiver Ja'Marr Chase over offensive lineman Penei Sewell early in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Sewell had the unenviable task throughout the first half of trying to stop Hendrickson. Sewell had a false-start penalty and a holding penalty, and Hendrickson recorded a sack (and almost had another one on a tackle of Lions quarterback Jared Goff near the line of scrimmage toward the end of the second quarter) to boost his season total to 5.5.

Lions' first-half observations: Defense keeping Detroit in it vs. Cincinnati
Detroit News contributor Nolan Bianchi offers his first-half observations as the Lions take on the Bengals at Ford Field. Defense is hanging inAll right, we’ll start with the good: After a rough opening series that saw the Bengals go up 7-0, the Lions’ defense buckled down and held Cincinnati down for the rest of the half. Almost every week, the Lions' defense has gotten better as the game continued, but that will be hard to match this second half. Swift and Williams averaged just 1.83 yards on 12 combined carries, and there simply wasn’t much that Detroit could do to get Cincinnati’s defense off-balance. But in the meantime, the unreliable protection to Goff’s blindside is something that’s actively hurting the Lions’ offense.

Tough baptism for Ranieri as Salah strikes again – Premier League talking points
The Premier League returned this weekend following the international break. Ranieri faces tall order to turn Watford’s fortunes aroundClaudio Ranieri is back in the Premier League with Watford (Tess Derry/PA) (PA Wire)Claudio Ranieri was handed one of the toughest first assignments imaginable on his return to the Premier League as his out-of-sorts Watford side entertained Liverpool. But in United’s next seven matches they have won just twice, picking up only one point in nine in the Premier League to fall to sixth, five points adrift of leaders Chelsea. In their eight league matches so far, Chelsea have dropped points just twice – a 1-1 draw against Liverpool and 1-0 home defeat to Manchester City – and tricky wins on the road could prove decisive this term. Newcastle are without a victory from their eight matches and Bruce is likely to be the fall guy.

March commemorates massacre of Algerians in Paris
A tribute march was organised on Sunday in Paris for the 60th anniversary of the bloody police crackdown on a protest by Algerians in the French capital, during the final year of their country's independence war with its colonial power. "The repression was brutal, violent, bloody" under the orders of Paris police chief Maurice Papon, Macron said in a statement released Saturday. About 12,000 Algerians were arrested and dozens were killed, "their bodies thrown into the Seine River," the statement said. Ahmed Toul, holding a photo of himself aged 13 on the streets of Paris on that fateful night, said the police were "were at boiling point". Activists want the massacre to be recognised as "state crime" committed by police, the opening of a memorial site, and reparations, amid other demands.
Hope, conflicted morality as Newcastle fans welcome Saudis

How long it will be until footage of Newcastle celebrating a trophy will be beamed around the world remains unclear.

As Blackhawks approach crisis point, Patrick Kane backs Jeremy Colliton
In a cramped room deep inside PPG Paints Arena late Saturday night, Patrick Kane went out of his way, unprompted, multiple times, to make clear his support of Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton. “There obviously needs to be some urgency to get in the win column and play better and have better starts,” Kane said after the 5-2 loss to the Penguins. After just three games, Chicago’s previous skepticism of Colliton has quickly morphed into unequivocal condemnation and, in some cases, outright hostility. And Kane, too, must improve if the Hawks are to do the same as a team. After not skating hard all summer and entering camp still somewhat inhibited by his nagging injury from last season, Kane hasn’t played like his usual dominant self yet.

David Moyes thankful for Angelo Ogbonna winner as West Ham edge old side Everton
West Ham manager David Moyes was thankful for Angelo Ogbonna’s 74th-minute headed winner in Sunday’s 1-0 victory over former club Everton as he was annoyed his side had not scored more before then. The centre-back flicked home a header late on for a Premier League high 29th set-piece goal – excluding penalties – since Moyes returned to the club for his second spell in charge in December 2019. It was only the Scot’s third Premier League victory over former Merseyside adversary Rafael Benitez who saw his 100 per cent home record ended, in 16 Premier League matches and his first since 2006 – and all have been at Goodison Park. “I was annoyed because I thought our play warranted more goals from it or even if we had clear opportunities created from it,” said Moyes. “We want people who want to head the ball; Craig Dawson was good last year, Kurt Zouma is good, Ogbonna got his goal.
Saracens dominate Bath 71-17 as Maro Itoje scores on Premiership return
England star Maro Itoje made a try-scoring return to the Gallagher Premiership as rampant Saracens humiliated rock-bottom Bath with a 71-17 victory at the Recreation Ground. His early exit appeared precautionary as Saracens consigned outclassed Bath to a fourth successive league defeat and worst Premiership start since 2001. Jones is certain to want early updates on Itoje and Bath wing Anthony Watson, who went off with what appeared to be a knee issue. Farrell converted, underlining the size of Bath’s assignment, and matters deteriorated for them after 16 minutes when Saracens struck again. Saracens soon resumed normal service, though, with further tries following for Mawi, Malins, Segan and Morris to complete an afternoon of total domination.

Newcastle vs Tottenham result, final score and match report after Harry Kane inspires comeback win to wreck takeover party
It was difficult to know how to feel after it - other than that Newcastle remain quite a poor team and Spurs a confusing one.

Matthew Wright’s field goal double snatches Jacksonville victory
The Jacksonville Jaguars ended the second-longest losing streak in NFL history as Matthew Wright’s last-gasp field goal sealed a stunning 23-20 victory against the Miami Dolphins in Sunday’s all-Florida clash in London. Both teams needed a shot in the arm after poor starts to the season and the Jaguars grabbed their chance, ending their 20-game losing run by beating the Dolphins thanks to Wright’s field goal at the death. But, having failed to score a field goal in their first five games, the little-known kicker hit a last-second winner from 53 yards.

England lock Maro Itoje, pictured in March, was among the scorers as Saracens thrashed BathAdvertising Read moreLondon (AFP)Saracens powered to an incredible 71-17 rout of Bath as Maro Itoje made a try-scoring return to the English Premiership on Sunday.

Sri Lanka coach Arthur admits T20 qualifier will be 'cutthroat'
Advertising Read moreAbu Dhabi (AFP)Sri Lanka coach Mickey Arthur believes the battle to reach the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup will be "cutthroat".

Spurs spoil Newcastle's Saudi party
The defeat leaves Newcastle still in the relegation zone without a Premier League win this season. Expectations on Tyneside are high for a huge injection of funding by the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) to transform Newcastle's fortunes on the field.

Kane turned provider for Spurs' third as his low cross was converted by Son sliding in at the far post. But Spurs held out to move up to fifth and level on points with fourth-placed Brighton.

Opinion: How LSU shut up Kirk Herbstreit behind a new motto
– Among Ed Orgeron and LSU football’s many critics this season has been the man who wields college football’s loudest megaphone. Twice this season, ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit has eviscerated LSU on “College GameDay” while questioning the Tigers’ heart and effort. “I see guys that don’t want to play for the LSU brand.”There was no quit in the Tigers on Saturday.

Raiders vs. Broncos odds, prediction: It’s OK to take Las Vegas
Las Vegas Raiders (+3.5) over DENVER BRONCOSThe advance line last week for this game was Broncos -2.5. After both teams lost last Sunday, it reopened at Broncos -3 and was bet to 3.5 by Monday night when it was announced Las Vegas coach Jon Gruden had resigned. I know the Steelers looked better in their 27-19 win over the Broncos, but I don’t understand why this line then went to -4 and has continued to rise. I know it sounds crazy, but Geno Smith looked like Wilson in rallying the Seahawks twice against the Rams. on his route and Smith was intercepted to keep from another potential scoring drive, so I’m comfortable with Smith filling in for Wilson.

Back down in the Great Smoky Mountains in Knoxville, Tenn., the fluorescent yellow appeared in a dot, in a practice-range golf ball Ole Miss Coach Lane Kiffin held up and claimed as a warped souvenir. It had joined the slew of items some Tennessee fans had hurled onto the field with 54 seconds left in a tight game, just after an unfavorable but accurate ruling on a fourth-down spot. The creepy deluge sent cheerleaders fleeing and included a container of mustard that was yellow but more of a standard yellow — and, if even partially full, wasted of the great gift to humanity that is mustard.

Alex Murdaugh defense spars with alleged hitman over medical records in botched suicide plot
Alex Murdaugh’s medical records from an alleged botched suicide shooting were released, as his defense attorneys continue to spar with an alleged hitman, Curtis "Fast Eddie" Smith, who made national news appearances last week claiming the disgraced South Carolina legal scion was never shot. These records come to light as Murdaugh also was arrested and charged Thursday in connection to insurance settlement money obtained following the death of the family’s longtime housekeeper, Gloria Satterfield. The suicide scheme was botched, Murdaugh claims, and Smith only grazed him in the head. Murdaugh recommended the Satterfield family hire Corey Fleming, of Moss, Kuhn and Fleming law firm in Beaufort, S.C., to represent them. But the Satterfield family again were never notified of the settlements or received any of the proceeds from them, the affidavit says.
A permanent residence? Fans weigh in on potential London NFL franchise
(CNN) UK fans of the NFL flocked to North London for the two 2021 London Games this month -- but could the capital city soon become a permanent home to an NFL franchise? Typically awash with the white of Spurs, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was transformed into a rainbow sea of jerseys as the Atlanta Falcons beat the New York Jets last week, before the Jacksonville Jaguars clinched a dramatic last-second victory to beat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Now into their 14th year of hosting duties since the first International Series game at Wembley Stadium in 2007, London has long been touted as a potential residence for a first non-US franchise -- either via the relocation of an established franchise or as a new expansion team. Today's victorious home team the Jaguars -- whose owner Shahid Khan has invested interest in London as owner of Fulham football club -- have committed to playing one overseas game a year as the designated "home" team and have subsequently been tipped as most likely to make a move across the Atlantic. Ultimately the decision will rest with the powers that be, but nobody with a ticket to the London Games over the last two weekends can doubt the size of the UK's NFL appetite.
Tom Brady shrugs off thumb injury to throw two touchdowns in Buccaneers win over Eagles
(CNN) Having become the NFL's all-time leader in passing yards earlier this month , it was fitting that Tom Brady, quite literally, stuck out like a sore thumb last night.

Brady heaped praise on his running back, Leonard Fournette, who ran for 81 yards, caught six passes for 46 yards and scored two touchdowns.

TE Zach Ertz traveling with team to Cleveland
New Arizona Cardinals tight end Zach Ertz can’t play this weekend when the team takes on the Cleveland Browns, but he will be there. Ertz, who played already this week for the Philadelphia Eagles in their 28-22 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was traded to the Cardinals Friday morning. Because he played already in Week 6, he is ineligible for the Cardinals’ game on Sunday. Because he already played this week, he had the option to use the long weekend to rest and relax before reporting to the Cardinals next week. It would seem he is very excited to be joining a 5-0 team who has a big hole at tight end with the loss of Maxx Williams for the season.

Week 6 Fantasy Football Stats: Another statement game for Baker
With Nick Chubb already ruled out the ground game for Cleveland won’t be at the height of its usual mega-efficiency.

It would be nice if the Browns and Mayfield could finally get something out of Odell Beckham Jr. in this week's game. Marquise Brown is seeing 42% of targets from the slotIt’s worth discussing Marquise Brown’s standing as the WR6 in fantasy football now that Rashod Bateman is expected back this week. Given that his role is secure and he’s due for some positive movement in his deep-ball stats, Brown is a buy.
Jaguars end 20-game losing streak, beat Dolphins on game-winning kick in London
And the Jacksonville Jaguars have won their first game since Week 1 of the 2020 season. The Jaguars topped the Miami Dolphins, 23-20, on Sunday morning in London.

Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens: Mike Williams active after missing week of practice
Chargers vs. Ravens matchups: Justin Herbert and Lamar Jackson could light it upBreaking down how the Chargers (4-1) and the Baltimore Ravens (4-1) match up heading into their game at 10 a.m. Pacific time Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

Rams vs. New York Giants: Live updates, news, odds and analysis
(Stephen Brashear / Associated Press)EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Rams’ offense features one of the NFL’s most savvy and strong-armed quarterbacks, a talented, deep and diverse receiver corps, and an offensive line that has given up the fewest sacks in the league. Now the question is whether the Rams can elevate the offense by consistently running the ball. Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel will attempt to show they can do it at least two games in a row when the Rams (4-1) play the New York Giants (1-4) at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. In a 26-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, Henderson and Michel each carried the ball at least 11 times and scored a touchdown. It marked the first time coach Sean McVay and running backs coach Thomas Brown deployed the two backs in semi-equal measure.

Prediction: Here's why the Phoenix Suns will fall just short of returning to NBA Finals
The Phoenix Suns weren't expected to finish with the NBA's second-best record last season, let alone be two victories away from winning the franchise's first NBA title. Don't sleep on Golden State, and Memphis is under the radar, but the Suns will finish second in the West, again. Games Chris Paul should play: 72He doesn't have a load-management mentality, but the Suns need Paul healthy for the postseason. However, JaVale McGee allows the Suns to play the same way they would with Ayton, but they're already giving him playmaker opportunities. Playoff prediction: No NBA FinalsSuns should be no worse than a third seed and return to the conference finals.

T20 World Cup opens with Oman cruising to 10-wicket win over Papua New Guinea
Oman opened the ICC Men’s Twenty20 World Cup by cruising to a 10-wicket victory over Papua New Guinea in Al Amerat. Having opted to bat, Papua New Guinea never recovered from losing both openers in the first over without a run on the board. Oman, who scored a memorable win over Ireland in their only previous T20 World Cup campaign in 2016, would ultimately reach their target without losing a wicket. Jatinder Singh hit 11 boundaries including four sixes in his knock of 73, whilst fellow opener Aqib Ilyas reached his half-century as the hosts wrapped up victory with 38 balls remaining. The emphatic nature of Oman’s victory also means a healthy net run-rate which could come into play later in their initial group stage games.

There should be no place in the Premier League, and English football, for anyone involved in such abhorrent acts. “We all know there are obviously some concerns over human rights issues.

Opinion: How LSU shut up Kirk Herbstreit behind a new motto
– Among Ed Orgeron and LSU football’s many critics this season has been the man who wields college football’s loudest megaphone. Twice this season, ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit has eviscerated LSU on “College GameDay” while questioning the Tigers’ heart and effort. “I see guys that don’t want to play for the LSU brand.”There was no quit in the Tigers on Saturday. Fight, fight, fight,” Johnson said. We’ve kept our heads down and worked throughout the week, and it showed Saturday.”Effort alone won’t save Orgeron’s job or this LSU season, but it’s a helpful start.

ESPN reporter Allison Williams leaving network due to vaccine mandate
Veteran reporter Allison Williams has decided to leave ESPN rather than comply with the network's mandate that all employees be vaccinated against COVID-19. Williams announced last month that for the first time in 15 years, she would not be on the sidelines during ESPN's college football broadcasts because she had declined the vaccine. (The network made vaccinations mandatory for staffers at live events at the beginning of August, then expanded it to all employees this month.) Williams cited anecdotal evidence of women having health issues after getting the vaccine as one of the reasons she is choosing not to follow the company mandate. "And I will not sacrifice something that I believe and hold so strongly to maintain a career."
Two angles NFL bettors must consider in Browns vs. Cardinals
Two of VSIN’s NFL experts offer their predictions for a total and a side in Sunday’s showdown in Cleveland between the Browns and Cardinals. Burke: The Browns appear to be chameleons this season, attempting to adapt to whatever situation they are in. The Browns have gone for it on fourth down 11 times this season, with seven of them against K.C. I would expect an aggressive mindset this week against a Cardinals team that can definitely put up points. The Browns, at 3-2, need the game more, as they already trail the Ravens in the AFC North.

Protest in Athens as Beijing prepares for Olympic Games flame
Athens, Greece (CNN) Greek police detained two human rights activists after they unfurled banners at the Athens Acropolis on Sunday opposing the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics as China's Games organizers prepare to receive the Olympic flame. The activists detained were 18-year-old Tibetan student Tsela Zoksang and 22-year-old Joey Siu, a US citizen exiled from Hong Kong. The protest was made hours before a dress rehearsal in Greece's Olympia, site of the ancient Olympics , of the torch lighting ceremony for the Games set for Monday. More rain is expected on Monday, with human rights activists pledging more actions until Tuesday's flame handover to Chinese Games organizers in Athens. The Beijing 2008 Summer Games flame ceremony was also severely disrupted by a string of protests from human rights activists, which was the start of international demonstrations over China's human rights record leading up to the Olympics.
Dodgers' mistakes, missed chances lead to walk-off loss to Braves in NLCS Game 1
Albies then stole second base on the first pitch to Riley to get into scoring position, leaving first base open. Dodgers baserunner Chris Taylor is tagged out by Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson after being caught in a ninth-inning rundown. After the game, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he considered intentionally walking Riley.

Taylor's blunder, other missed chances put LA in NLCS hole
ATLANTA (AP) — If Chris Taylor could do it all over, he would've stopped at second base on Cody Bellinger's ninth-inning single. The Los Angeles Dodgers had trouble getting all the way around the bases throughout Saturday night's NL Championship Series opener. The Dodgers were 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position and stranded seven, leaving manager Dave Roberts to lament several missed chances. “I think we out hit them; they just outscored us, which is part of the game," Trea Turner said.

Bobsledder Humphries left Canada over alleged abuse. The move might cost her an Olympics.
Before the 2010 Winter Olympics, Humphries was part of an anti-bullying campaign in which athletes picked words that had been used against them. Distraught, Humphries went to Bobsleigh Canada leaders a few weeks before the Olympics and asked to be sent home. A month after the Olympics, Humphries repeated her concerns about Hays to Bobsleigh Canada President Sarah Storey, who she said told her Hays would remain in his position. Bobsleigh Canada hired an independent firm to investigate Humphries's claims, and for the next year, Humphries did not compete for Canada. She hired Jeffrey Rath, a Calgary attorney, and sued Bobsleigh Canada in September 2019, asking for her release.

Bears’ inactives vs. Packers: WR Allen Robinson, DT Akiem Hicks to play
The Bears went most of the week without a top player on each side of the ball, but wide receiver Allen Robinson and outside linebacker Khalil Mack both will play against the Packers on Sunday. The biggest question mark for the Bears, though, was defensive tackle Akiem Hicks. Hicks hurt his groin on his first play against the Lions in Week 4, missed the game at the Raiders last week and hasn’t practiced in full since. Mack has been fighting through a sprained foot for almost a month and hasn’t been able to practice much, but hasn’t missed a game. Robinson missed practice Wednesday and Thursday because of an ankle injury, then was able to practice partially Friday.

‘It’s a beautiful thing’: How Oklahoma State’s defense shined in fourth quarter against Texas
But it was even harder to predict the fourth-quarter play of the Cowboys’ defense in a 32-24 comeback win over Texas on Saturday at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. Simply, the Cowboys’ defense shined brightest when the game was on the line. After OSU scored to get within two, the Cowboys held star Bijan Robinson to 7 yards on three carries. Star running back Jaylen Warren burst through the Texas defense for a 29-yard run, putting OSU at the 10. Knowles called it the “Brock Martin play.” It happened last season at Baylor.
Lions scratch Trinity Benson in favor of Geronimo Allison for Bengals game
Detroit — In desperate need for someone to step up at wide receiver, the Detroit Lions won't immediately look to Trinity Benson to fill that void. The team scratched the player they acquired via trade ahead of the season, opting instead to activate veteran Geronimo Allison off the practice squad for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. After a stellar preseason with the Denver Broncos, the Lions sent fifth- and seventh-round draft picks in exchange for Benson and a sixth-rounder. A waiver claim ahead of the season, he played 44 offensive snaps last week after 13 combined the previous four games. Allison, who signed with the Lions ahead of the 2020 season prior to opting out due to COVID concerns, will suit up for the franchise for the first time.

The redshirt sophomore addressed the lack of balls that had been thrown his way this season.

This time he found himself wide open in the end zone as he hauled in a 7-yard touchdown reception. "Obviously, it was good to get one takeaway," OU defensive coordinator Alex Grinch said. Redshirt sophomore defensive lineman Jalen Redmond (knee), redshirt sophomore defensive back Jeremiah Criddell and freshman wide receiver Cody Jackson (medical issue) also continue to miss time.
Five things we learned from West Ham’s win at Everton
West Ham are up to sixth in the Premier League table after securing a well-deserved victory over an insipid Everton at Goodison Park. Jarrod Bowen stepping up a levelFormer Hull City forward Jarrod Bowen arrived at West Ham in January 2019 with the reputation of a consistent goalscorer, having scored 54 in 131 appearances during his time with the Tigers. But Bowen is evolving into the kind of persistent pest which Premier League defenders hate having to deal with, and he was at it again here this afternoon. Rondon and Iwobi were static, unimaginative and slow, meaning a West Ham defender was never dragged out of position and the visitors’ shape was confident and comfortable for the entirety of the game. The Brazilian ended the match with a passing accuracy of just 64 per cent, and only managed two tackles.
Angelo Ogbonna header enough as West Ham end Everton boss Rafa Benitez’s perfect home record
West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna’s header ended Everton manager Rafael Benitez’s 100 per cent home record as David Moyes got the better of his old Merseyside adversary in a 1-0 Premier League victory at Goodison Park. Since his first game back in charge at West Ham, his side have earned a reputation as dead-ball specialists – and they have scored more (29), excluding penalties – than any other Premier League side. Having wasted a good start to the game, Moyes would have been relieved to have left with three points, which lifted West Ham back into the top six. Everton enjoyed more control after the break with Iwobi’s shot on the turn deflected behind and Rondon glancing a header just wide from Townsend’s inswinging cross as West Ham started to lose their way. However, the match turned on Antonio’s challenge on England’s number one: Ogbonna glanced home Rice’s cross and with it went Benitez’s unbeaten home record.
Everton vs West Ham result: Player ratings as Hammers end Toffees’ unbeaten home record
West Ham United took a deserved three points and ended Everton’s 100 per cent home record with a 1-0 win on Sunday. A few fumbles of crosses but dealt largely well with constant pressure of his box in the first half. One of the home team’s better players in terms of carrying the ball upfield and looking to break past the Hammers’ lines. Nothing quite went right for the final pass or shot but he kept Everton on the back foot and worked hard throughout. Chances didn’t really fall his way but his constant running behind was tough for the home team to deal with.

Talks between Barcelona and Ansu Fati 'paused' as Jorge Mendes 'refuses €1 billion release clause'
Ansu Fati's negotiations with Barcelona over a new deal have hit a brick wall, with Jorge Mendes reportedly unhappy over the terms offered to his client. Ansu Fati's contract expires at the end of the season and negotiations with Barca have stalledThe crux of the issue appears to be the length of the contract on offer. Conversely, the LaLiga giants are hoping to sign Fati to a long-term extension containing several performance bonuses and an increase in the base salary after each season. Barcelona's offer also reportedly included a €1 billion release clause (£840 million), which Mendes has no intention to agree to. Pedri signed a five-year extension with Barca which included a €1 billion release clauseTo complicate matters further, as reported by AS last month, Barcelona have signed a unilateral extension clause to extend Fati's contract until 2024.

Chiefs vs. Washington prediction: Go with Kansas City
Sunday’s game between the Chiefs and Washington feels a lot like Kansas City’s game two weeks ago against the Eagles. In that game, Kansas City was 9-for-10 on third down. In this one, the Chiefs face the 31st-ranked third-down defense (Washington has allowed opponents to convert 56.2 percent of the time). The Washington defense was shredded by both the Chargers and the Bills. This isn’t a must-win for Kansas City, but it is a game the Chiefs should win — and by a large margin.

Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson, right, tags out the Dodgers’ Chris Taylor as Taylor is caught in a rundown between bases during the ninth inning of Game 1 of the NLCS at Truist Park on Saturday in Atlanta.

Opinion: What will it take for Lions to overcome history of heartbreaking losses?
I was 10 years old, increasingly interested in my local NFL team, the Detroit Lions. Unfortunately, that list of painful Lions setbacks has grown to epic proportions, with another item added last Sunday when Minnesota Vikings kicker Greg Joseph booted a 54-yard field goal as time expired to thwart a Lions rally. Yes, that’s the same Joseph who missed a 37-yard field goal as time expired to seal a Week 2 loss at Arizona. It’s also striking that Campbell, a former tight end, was a member (briefly) of the 2008 Detroit team that went 0-16. The Lions lost on an Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary.

The Patriots, 0-3 at home this season, are in danger of losing a fourth straight game at Gillette Stadium against Dallas. The Cowboys enter as solid favorites, largely thanks to their explosive offense comprised of multi-time Pro Bowlers at virtually every position. Dak Prescott is at the controls, completing 73.9% of his passes for 1,368 yards, 13 touchdowns and three picks. The Patriots must accept that they’re going to cede yards to Elliott and Pollard, a worthy sacrifice if it means keeping Prescott out of rhythm. Under Belichick, the Patriots have made a habit out of doubling opponents’ best weapons on third downs and inside the red zone.
What Mac Jones and the Patriots offense must do to exploit the Dallas defense
Mac Jones managed to lead the Patriots back from a 13-point deficit last week to pull out a win over the Texans. Against the Cowboys, the Patriots are going to need the same kind of effort defensively, but also need the offense to come out of its shell. Start fastThe Patriots haven’t been particularly good at the start of games on either side of the ball, but especially on offense. When the duo signed, that seemed to signal that the Patriots offense would revolve around them. Avoiding interceptions and turnovers in general will be key for Jones and the offense.

No. 7 Ohio State women's volleyball rolls to sixth straight victory
7 ranked Ohio State women's volleyball team won its sixth straight match and improved to 16-2 overall with a sweep (25-13, 25-20, 25-6) of Rutgers at the Covelli Center Saturday. The Buckeyes made quick work of the Scarlet Knights, scoring the first eight points of the first set, scoring 18-straight points in the final frame, and wrapping up the entire match within one hour and 12 minutes. “I think this was a good test of our discipline," said OSU head coach Jen Flynn Oldenburg. I feel like our team had a great mentality coming in.”This was the best hitting performance (.443) of the season for the Buckeyes. And the win marked Ohio State's 12th sweep this season.
Patriots RB Damien Harris expected to play against Cowboys, per report
Patriots running back Damien Harris is expected to play Sunday against the Cowboys, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Harris missed practice Wednesday with a ribs injury and was limited on Thursday and Friday. Harris was officially listed as questionable on the team’s injury report Friday. The Patriots also listed backup running back J.J. Taylor as questionable with a new groin injury. If Harris does play and Taylor is ruled out, the Pats will be down to three running backs, including fourth-round rookie Rhamondre Stevenson and Brandon Bolden.
NFL Notes: Addressing Rex Ryan’s claim that Mac Jones is a ‘peashooter’
“Not no,” he said, “but hell no.”Then Ryan called rookie quarterback Mac Jones a “peashooter,” and one of the reasons the Patriots won’t be headed to the postseason. But let’s take away the bluster and tackle Ryan’s points about Jones and the Patriots at face value. As for the peashooter crack, Ryan believes Jones struggles whenever he tries to throw the ball outside the numbers or downfield. “Yes, he’s going to have to prove it,” Harrison agreed, “but they’re going to have to be more aggressive in their play-calling to get defenses off of him. So I think he’s off to an excellent start.”But Danny Wuerffel?
Newcastle’s big day finally arrives with tough decisions ahead
Eight days after getting their club back, it was the statement the Toon Army did not want to see. A post on Newcastle United’s website on Friday afternoon announced a landmark event: Steve Bruce’s 1,000th game in football management. Bruce is not loved by the Newcastle fans and is certainly not the sort of glamorous face (that broken nose alone …) that may come to symbolise the PIF project. Amanda Staveley has called for patience from Newcastle supporters as the new owners put their plans into action. Finally, there was a call to value the club’s supporters “regardless of their age, income, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexuality or religion”.
Rising star Badosa aims to upset resurgent Azarenka at Indian Wells
“There were parts where I physically couldn’t necessarily bring that extra level, extra fight, which was very frustrating. It was a lot of searching in the season, a lot of kind of stepping into the unknown.”In Indian Wells, Azarenka’s last tournament of the year, she has found her way by embracing solidity. Faced with four top-20 opponents in succession in Indian Wells, she strolled past Coco Gauff, Barbora Krejcikova, Angelique Kerber and Ons Jabeur without losing a set. Paula Badosa has not dropped a set on her way to the final at Indian Wells. “I’ve seen her a lot, a lot of finals, winning grand slams, 1000 tournaments,” said Badosa.
Lane Kiffin pelted with bottles of ‘brown stuff’ as Ole Miss beat Tennessee
Ole Miss stopped Tennessee a yard shy of a first down on a fourth-and-24 pass with just over a minute left. After that play, and the review that confirmed the spot of the ball, Tennessee fans pelted the field with objects. Kiffin later said that one of the golf ball did find its target. “I still have my souvenir golf ball,” Kiffin said. “I’m disappointed in the way the game ended with things being thrown from the crowd,” Tennessee coach Josh Heupel said.
Newcastle United vs Tottenham Hotspur, Premier League: live score and latest updates
and welcome to our live blog of Newcastle United vs Spurs, the kick off of which is at 4.30pm UK time, which I think I am right in saying is 6.3opm in Riyadh. "Newcastle United are likely to spend only a fraction of the £190m they are allowed to invest in players in January with a planned budget of just £50m for the first window under their Saudi Arabian owners," Luke writes. All those clubs know they could, had they wanted, have legislated against a repressive regime taking control of one of them. It sounds like it is all quite a bit more complicated than someone just dropping off extra cash outside the dressing room door. Expensive signings, new facilities and player discord: how it feels to be inside a football club takeover

Misery Index notebook: Clemson's offense out of sync, Nebraska backed into a corner
But this season, Clemson isn’t just a bad offense, it’s a miserable offense to watch. Virginia Tech’s 28-7 loss at home to Pittsburgh was the Hokies’ eighth in their last 12 games against Power Five opponents. Either way, Texas’ atrociousness in the second half appears to know no limits after a 32-24 loss to Oklahoma State. Texas A&M didn’t play particularly well after that, but when you’re up three touchdowns for nearly the entire game, it hardly matters. But after the 2018 season, Littrell never quite got to the finish line after serious discussions with Kansas State.

If Dalton Schultz has yet another big game, his managers might want to see what they can get for him in a trade. The fourth-year TE has been surprisingly productive, but his targets could drop precipitously if and when, as expected, WR Michael Gallup returns from injury following Dallas's Week 7 bye. Over their past four games, the Cowboys have averaged a gaudy 201 rushing yards, which is not only great news for Ezekiel Elliott managers but has made fellow RB Tony Pollard a decent flex play.
Kaillie Humphries left Canada to escape alleged abuse. It might cost her an Olympics.
Bobsledding is a small world, so when Bobsleigh Canada hired Todd Hays as coach in the lead-up to the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, Humphries had heard some things from sledders in the United States, where Hays had been the women’s coach from 2011 to 2014. In a recent interview, one U.S. female bobsledder who competed for Hays described him as “charming” but also an “obsessively controlling” coach who often blew up at sledders and used his 6-foot-3 frame and his “intensity” as intimidation. The sledder spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retribution.

ESPN Ranks teams with the highest chance to win the National Championship
Six weeks into the season, the college football hierarchy is beginning to provide some clarity. Yesterday, ESPN ranked the teams with the best chance to win the National Championship and the Oklahoma Sooners came in fourth behind Georgia, Alabama, and Ohio State. The Georgia Bulldogs have established themselves as the team to beat in college football with their smothering defense. Ohio State bounced back nicely after a loss to Oregon and Michigan is fielding its best team in years. Though there’s a chance that two SEC teams work their way into the College Football Playoff, the Big 12 and Big 10 are hoping for one of their blue bloods to emerge as national title contenders.

Gresham firefighter running the Boston Marathon helps save life of downed runner, realizes he knows her
The Gresham firefighter and paramedic finished Monday’s race more than seven minutes slower than his goal of under 2 hours and 55 minutes, but he did help save a life along the way. “I didn’t even think about the race at that point,” said Haney, a firefighter of 14 years, five with the city of Gresham. It was just ‘This person needs help.’”When he took a look at the downed runner, Roth, he realized he knew her. He and a mutual running friend had had dinner with Haney when they were in Illinois for the 2019 Chicago Marathon. Like Haney, Roth also is in her 30s.
Trail Blazers shake off poor preseason with regular season starting Wednesday
Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum appeared unfazed by the team concluding an 0-4 preseason by losing 119-97 at Golden State on Friday night. “There were some times where I thought we did a really good job of kicking it ahead, advancing the ball, playing with really good pace,” Billups said. “As far as our offense and defense, things like that, those things will come,” Billups said. Lillard has played in only about 48 of the possible 192 minutes played by the Blazers over four preseason games. If the team’s shooting from last season continues this season, that alone would help make up for a lot of problems that have hindered the team during the preseason.

Kevin De Bruyne proves again he is Manchester City's MVP after toughest summer of his career
Guardiola has eased him back into City’s season after a surprise place on the bench on the opening weekend of the campaign. City’s captaincy is decided by vote and De Bruyne could come back into the reckoning later in his career, which would be fitting for City’s most important player of the Guardiola era. While there is debate around how Guardiola’s forwards should line up, there are no doubts over De Bruyne’s position. He has got a really good attitude about how he goes about his business every day,” said Burnley manager Sean Dyche. It is not easy coming to these parts but he has looked nice and calm, just getting on with it.”

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has no worries over ‘unselfish’ Romelu Lukaku’s six-game dry spell
Thomas Tuchel has insisted he has no worries over “unselfish” Romelu Lukaku’s six-goal dry spell in front of goal for Chelsea. Lukaku tucked away Timo Werner’s cross at Brentford on Saturday, only to see the effort chalked out for offside. Blues boss Tuchel has remained relaxed about Belgium hitman Lukaku’s recent barren run however, instead praising the 28-year-old’s selfless approach. Altogether we produced a very strong 60 to 75 minutes, including Romelu and Timo (Werner). “Both of them, Romelu and Timo, were too far away to help us escape the pressure.
Golfers team up to break world record for fastest ever hole
Professionals usually take 10 to 15 minutes to complete a hole on a golf course but four European Tour players teamed up to break the Guinness World Record by achieving the feat inside 25 seconds. Sean Crocker, Nicolai Hojgaard, Min Woo Lee and Wilco Nienaber took up the challenge to break the record of 27.88 seconds set by an American team in 2018, having originally broken the record five years earlier. “I don’t know about you guys but I kind of want to put ‘Guinness World Record holder’ in my Instagram bio,” Crocker said. The hole chosen was the fourth at Valderrama Golf Club in Spain which is 501 yards long. His 140-yard approach shot landed within four feet of the hole and Lee sank the putt as Hojgaard lifted the flag.
Steve Bruce has been ‘battered’ and used as Newcastle United’s fall guy, says son Alex

I think he’s done a very good job at all the clubs he’s managed, and I think he deserves a crack. “He knew that was going to be the case from the day he took the job,” he said. He used to crawl under the turnstiles, stand there when he was a kid with his dad, he’s always supported the club.
Dean Smith questions Aston Villa game management after collapse against Wolves
Boss Dean Smith questioned Aston Villa’s game management after their late collapse against Wolves. Ruben Neves’ deflected free-kick capped a remarkable comeback for Wolves as they recovered from 2-0 down with 10 minutes left to win 3-2 on Saturday. “At 2-0 up with 10 minutes to go you obviously question the game management and what we have done to enable them to win so many set pieces,” said Smith. “Unfortunately, we didn’t defend our box well enough from set pieces and we ended up losing a game we should never have lost. That kind of thing can happen here, the Premier League, 2-0 down, 20 minutes, there’s time to play, for the players to believe.”

Swansea 3-0 Cardiff: Swans run riot in South Wales derby to inflict SIXTH straight defeat on rivals
Perhaps Ken Choo will now have his wish and the Cardiff CEO can begin flicking through those CVs he collected before this south Wales Derby. Jamie Paterson inspired Swansea, scoring one stunner and brilliantly creating two more - for Joel Piroe and Jake Bidwell. Cardiff had many chances to score in the South Wales derby including one from Curtis NelsonThe delighted Swansea fans pleaded for under-fire McCarthy to stay on as Cardiff managerAll that was certain? They haven't scored a first-half league goal since May 1; no side has come from behind to score in a South Wales derby since 2010. Unfortunately, Swansea enjoyed 74 per cent of the ball more Cardiff opportunities went begging after the break, too.

Swansea beat rivals Cardiff to pile pressure on McCarthy
Advertising Read moreLondon (AFP)Swansea increased the pressure on Cardiff manager Mick McCarthy with a 3-0 win over their bitter rivals in the south Wales derby on Sunday. Joel Piroe and Jake Bidwell bagged second half goals as Swansea enjoyed their biggest league win under new boss Russell Martin. Whether McCarthy survives this local beating remains to be seen, but the nature of Cardiff's second-half surrender means serious questions are set to be asked about the former Republic of Ireland manager. McCarthy has only been in charge since January but Cardiff now find themselves three points above the relegation zone when they had been expected to mount a play-off challenge. Swansea climbed three points clear of Cardiff after their third win in 12 league games.

Openers Aqib Ilyas (50 from 43 balls) and Jatinder Singh (73 from 42) then clattered the PNG bowlers around the ground without being parted to steer Oman home with 6.2 overs to spare, handing Papua New Guinea a tough lesson in their first ever World Cup outing. Maqsood remained the hero with his left-arm spin as he struck thrice in one over to rattle PNG who had lost both their openers for nought. New-ball bowlers Bilal Khan and Kaleemullah, who goes by just one name, took two wickets each.
Observations from wild Week 7 in college football: Caleb Williams gives Oklahoma big boost
It didn't appear there would be much drama in college football during Week 7. 12 Oklahoma State had a furious rally to knock of Texas for the second consecutive disappointing loss suffered by the Longhorns. The stats might not even do the performance justice, which is saying something since Williams was 18-of-23 for 295 yards and four touchdowns. Kenny Pickett threw for two touchdowns, giving him 21 on the season with just one interception. With several of his key players on offense sidelined, the senior quarterback threw for 231 yards and two touchdowns.
Giants vs. Rams odds, analysis and predictions for all Week 6 NFL games
The Giants were 13.5-point underdogs at SoFi Stadium, entering the game 0-3 in what was a disastrous start to the season. Minnesota Vikings (-1) over CAROLINA PANTHERSDespite public support for the Panthers, sharp action flipped the line and made the Vikings the short road favorite. Bad matchup for the Cardinals, despite the short road ’dog angle. So this is a bit of a letdown spot in a second consecutive road game against crafty coach Mike Vrabel and meat-grinding RB Derrick Henry.

Billionaire Marc Lore outlines how he will build the inclusive, Utopian desert city Telosa
Yet that's where Lore feels like Telosa can be different, and understanding the colossal "how" of the project means understanding the "why" for Lore. Marc Lore:Former Walmart president reveals plan for $400-billion Utopian city in the US desertTelosa's name derives from the Ancient Greek word telos – meaning "higher purpose." By that set-up, in a dream scenario, Lore believes Telosa's desert land would eventually balloon in value to be worth $1 trillion. "We can't create a city without some early nudging to move to the city," Lore said. This isn't the first time that a Utopian city has been attempted by a wealthy person.
Opinion: Florida's failure to play up to own standard makes it No. 1 on Week 7 Misery Index
If Dan Mullen is going to be evaluated the way every Florida coach since Steve Spurrier is evaluated, the standard is pretty straightforward. Either you’re getting Florida into the mix to win SEC and national championships or you’re going to be living the buyout life. "I put such high expectations on myself and our program of what we want to do," Mullen told ESPN prior to the 2019 season. Given the high standards of a job like Florida, you wouldn’t say Mullen has wildly exceeded expectations. 1 in this week’s Misery Index, a weekly measurement of knee-jerk reactions based on what each fan base just watched.
College football Week 7 report card: Cheers to Purdue's beer-soaked lineman, jeers to Tennessee's trash-throwing fans
Welcome to the fourth edition of the 2021 report card, where you will find a more light-hearted look at each weekend in college football with grades handed out where it is deemed appropriate. Last week’s standouts included Texas A&M’s monumental upset of top-ranked Alabama, a foodie’s heaven at the Texas State Fair and the introduction of karate kicks in college football. We are going to go ahead and assume Long is well over 21 years of age as he has played college football since 2016. That's not bad for a program that has only two double-digit winning seasons since playing the first college football game in 1869. The scoring drive was the longest in college football this season and Navy's longest since a 26-play drive in the 2004 Emerald Bowl.
What to watch in NFL Week 6: Young quarterbacks duel in Baltimore and Cleveland
Chiefs at Washington: Neither team really expected to be here after five games. It certainly is more surprising for the Chiefs, who have advanced to the past three AFC championship games and gone 1-1 in Super Bowls in the Patrick Mahomes era. But their loss to Buffalo on Sunday night may have been a sign that the torch has been passed in the AFC. Washington’s defense, supposedly its strong point, has been a problem, too. During training camp, Chase Young, the 2020 defensive rookie of the year, and Montez Sweat spoke of aiming for the NFL’s sack record for a duo.
Man with gunshot wound dies after being thrown from car in NYC
A man died after he was thrown from a vehicle with a gunshot wound to his leg in Brooklyn Sunday morning, police said. The vehicle stopped in front of 844 Clarkson Avenue in East Flatbush around 6 a.m. and the 29-year-old was thrown out onto the street, cops said. He was taken to Kings County Hospital and died a short time later. There was no description of the vehicle immediately available, cops said.
Kahleah Copper ‘ain’t no punk’ — and she’s helped push the Sky to the verge of a WNBA title
Thibault said he has long had a special affinity for Rutgers players because they usually come into the league well prepared, especially on the defensive end. He said they seem to blossom offensively in the league and he remembers that Copper wasn’t a great outside shooter but was determined to get better. Now she’s shooting 53.5 percent from the field and 39.3 percent from behind the arc in the playoffs.

DFS matchup-based value picks for Week 6
DFS Value Report, we can uncover some of the best values at each position for the Week 6 main slate. Booker took over for Barkley last week and got two touchdowns and 19 touches, three of which came from passing plays. The Rams are a good defense, but I am looking to spend down this week on a thin running back slate. This year he has managed four targets inside the 20 with two targets inside the 10 last week. The Chiefs’ defense has bled fantasy points to every position and I expect some points out of this Football Team offense.

Would you rather? Breaking down NFL Week 6 betting lines
Week 6 of the NFL season is underway and the never-ending drama surrounding the NFL is on full display. While we navigate leaked e-mails, let's try and break down some betting lines. We're taking a look at six NFL games from this weekend's slate and trying to talk our way into finding an edge.

Linebacker C.J. Goetz returns to his roots for one game to help the Wisconsin Badgers control Army
The reason: UW’s defensive staff planned to use the 6-foot-3, 243-pound Goetz at end in a three-man front against the Black Knights’ triple-option offense. He recorded 1½ tackles for loss and a personal-best seven total tackles against Army. The Black Knights recovered the fumble at the UW 43 just 2 minutes 31 seconds into the game. He recorded just one more tackle, and the Black Knights did not sack Mertz the rest of the night. That allowed Chenal to finish with 2½ of UW’s tackles for loss and a team-best 17 total tackles.
Proposal to require body cameras for Michigan conservation officers draws opposition
Beau LaFave, R-Iron Mountain, would require conservation officers to wear body cameras while working in the field. The use of body cameras could reduce use of force incidents and citizen complaints against officers, LaFave said. “First, the bill singles out DNR law enforcement officers as being required in statute to wear body cameras,” Golder said. “We believe this discussion should focus broadly on all law enforcement officers, not simply DNR officers. “Our counties have embraced body cameras, with sheriff’s deputies, and our locals have with their police officers and their departments.
'What we're aspiring to look like': Georgia shows climbing Kentucky how far it has to go

Everton vs West Ham United, Premier League: live score, team news and latest updates
By Chris BascombeAs he tries to establish himself as part of Rafael Benitez’s Everton revolution, Anthony Gordon can already lay claim to one of the season’s memorable assists. “I spoke to Andros asking if he’d do it, and I was thinking to myself that I’d do it if I scored. Some might take it out of context, but it’s just because Andros said he’s his idol. “When I was a kid there was always the big debate – Messi or Ronaldo – and I would always argue that Ronaldo was better. No matter how skilful Messi is, if I was a coach and I had to win one game, I would pick Ronaldo.
Gareth Bale's agent says the Welshman and Jose Mourinho 'didn't see football the same way'
Gareth Bale's agent has opened up about the frosty relationship between his client and Jose Mourinho during their difficult time together at Tottenham. However, the winger enjoyed fewer minutes than expected, starting just six Premier League games under Mourinho in 2020-21, with Jonathan Barnett telling the Mirror: 'At Spurs, there wasn't a fallout. Mourinho was caught on SpursTV in January relaying a conversation with Bale to his coaching staff, in which he told Bale: 'You want to stay here? Later that month, Mourinho said Bale 'must earn rather than be given minutes' as he continued to be left on the bench. The 32-year-old is into the final year of his contract, with negotiations not thought to be ongoing.
Tuchel backs 'unselfish' Lukaku to end goal drought
Advertising Read moreLondon (AFP)Thomas Tuchel insists Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku will end his worrying goal drought because he is so unselfish. Tuchel's side moved to the top of the Premier league with a hard-fought 1-0 win at west London neighbours Brentford on Saturday. But Belgium forward Lukaku was unable to get on the scoresheet as his run without a club goal extended to six games. But since then the goals have dried up, raising questions about a player who also flopped in the Premier League with Manchester United before reviving his career at Inter. Lukaku tucked away Timo Werner's cross against Brentford, only to see the effort chalked out for offside.
Ogier made to wait as Neuville wins Rally of Spain
Advertising Read moreSalou (Spain) (AFP)Sebastien Ogier's bid for an eighth world rally championship title was put on hold as Hyundai's Thierry Neuville held on to win the Rally of Spain on Sunday. Sordo's Sunday charge gave him third place, and a 50th podium in his 176 rallies, ahead of fourth-placed Ogier. The victory keeps Neuville in third position in the championship but he is now out of the title race, too far behind Ogier. Five times a runner-up in the WRC championship, this was his 15th rally win. Welshman Evans, who is the only other driver who can now deny Ogier that eighth title, admitted he was "quite frustrated" by his second place behind Neuville.

2 arrested in Athens for protesting Beijing Olympics
ATHENS -- Two women attempted to hang a banner from the Acropolis in Athens Sunday morning in protest at the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics, and were detained by Greek police. They also chanted slogans including "Free Tibet," "Boycott Beijing 2022" and "No freedom, no Games." "The IOC is sending the world a message that it is ok to turn a blind eye to genocide and crimes against humanity in Hong Kong, Tibet, East Turkestan and Southern Mongolia," added Siu. The Olympic flame for the 24th Winter Games will be lit at Ancient Olympia Monday and handed over to the Chinese at a ceremony in Athens' Panathenian Stadium Tuesday. The Beijing Winter Games are scheduled to run from Feb. 4-20, 2022, with the Paralympics set to follow from March 4-13.
Opinion: What will it take for Lions to overcome history of heartbreaking losses?
I was 10 years old, increasingly interested in my local NFL team, the Detroit Lions. Unfortunately, that list of painful Lions setbacks has grown to epic proportions, with another item added last Sunday when Minnesota Vikings kicker Greg Joseph booted a 54-yard field goal as time expired to thwart a Lions rally. Yes, that’s the same Joseph who missed a 37-yard field goal as time expired to seal a Week 2 loss at Arizona. It’s also striking that Campbell, a former tight end, was a member (briefly) of the 2008 Detroit team that went 0-16. The Lions lost on an Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary.

And under the floodlights at Glen Oaks Club, New York, a par on the 17th hole for Korda against Popov was enough to clinch the title -- her second LET title, and a first for Lampert and Boqvist.

Blackhawks notebook: In Chris Kunitz, Marc-Andre Fleury has bit of Penguins past in Chicago
PITTSBURGH — When not facing his longtime former team, goalie Marc-Andre Fleury always has a little bit of his Penguins past with him on the Blackhawks: Chris Kunitz. Sometimes, Kunitz brings out his old forward skills and helps warm up Fleury with some shots. Both left Pittsburgh at the same time, too, with Fleury going to the Golden Knights and Kunitz to the Lightning in the summer of 2017. Good guy, good friend. “His wife helped my wife try to get settled in with babysitters or whatever else we were going to need,” Fleury said.
Nuggets Journal: Why Denver needs more accountability to succeed this season
And yet as the Thunder plodded up court, Aaron Gordon pointed at one unaccounted player while Porter Jr. took responsibility for another. Dumbfounded at the lack of communication, Nuggets coach Michael Malone called timeout to reinforce the point. With another game on tap Thursday night, also against the Thunder, Malone opened that day’s film session with roughly 25 clips. “I told our players, I know what we’re supposed to be doing, and I think you guys do,” Malone said. It’s not necessarily in Nikola Jokic’s nature, and without Jamal Murray, there’s now more responsibility on Porter to assume that role.

ANCIENT OLYMPIA, Greece - (AP) -- A sunburst at the overcast birthplace of the ancient Olympic Games in Greece was too short-lived to light the backup flame for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics at Sunday's dress rehearsal. Health measures for the second pandemic flame-lighting at Ancient Olympia, in the southern Peloponnese region, mean that much of the normal pageantry is being trimmed back. Human rights activists had also staged protests during the flame-lighting ceremony for the 2008 Beijing Summer Games, and disrupted the international torch relay.

On Saturday in a dominant 4-0 win against Inter Miami, the Crew winger celebrated by continuing what was his best performance of the season.

The Nets Had a Chance to Win Over New York. Now, They’ll Try Again.
This summer, the Nets retooled their roster, somehow managing to add talent to one of the best on-paper assemblies in N.B.A. That’s true even if Kyrie Irving, barred from games until he gets vaccinated, doesn’t play for a while. But if the Nets don’t win at least one ring, this era most likely will be considered one of the biggest flops ever — and the Nets will have blown their best chance to cut into the suddenly resurgent Knicks’ hold on the city. team in New York City,” John Abbamondi, the chief executive of the Nets, said in an interview at Barclays before that Game 7. That’s our aspiration.”Nine years ago, the Nets played their first season in Brooklyn, after being in New Jersey since 1977 following the merger with the A.B.A.
David F. Kennedy, Whose Ad Agency Put Nike on the Map, Dies at 82
David F. Kennedy, a founder of the innovative advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy, which created famous campaigns featuring Nike’s slogan “Just do it” and Lou Reed on a Honda scooter, died on Sunday at his home in Estacada, Ore., near Portland. The cause was heart failure, said Jeff Selis, a former Wieden+Kennedy producer and a family friend. Wieden+Kennedy, which Mr. Kennedy started in Oregon with Dan Wieden in 1982, elevated Portland’s creative cachet at a time when advertising was mostly associated with New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. While many rivals have been subsumed by gargantuan holding companies, the agency remained at his death an independent shop, with eight offices around the world and about 1,500 employees. In 1988, Mr. Kennedy was the creative director on the first Nike commercial to include Mr. Wieden’s slogan “Just do it,” featuring an 80-year-old man named Walt Stack who ran 17 miles each morning.
‘Saturday Night Live’ Takes on the N.F.L.’s Jon Gruden Scandal
scandal has wide-reaching implications when it makes it as far as a “Saturday Night Live” opening sketch. This week, in an episode hosted by Rami Malek and featuring the musical guest Young Thug, “S.N.L.” led off with a segment about Jon Gruden, the former coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, who stepped down on Monday. The “S.N.L.” sketch made use of several members of the show’s cast — even Colin Jost, who’s rarely seen away from the Weekend Update desk, and who played the N.F.L. Speaking as Goodell, Jost said, “When you see me on TV, it’s never good. This time, one of our coaches is accused of racism, misogyny and homophobia.
A condensed oral history of the 2006 NLCS and a Mets team that came so damn close
HOUSTON — Whenever someone recognizes Cliff Floyd in the New York area and opens with, “I have to know…,” the former Mets outfielder-first baseman performs the retired player’s version of cutting off a relay throw. “I know,” Floyd will say, “you’re wondering if Willie should’ve bunted instead of pinch-hit me. Why are you driving yourself crazy?”“I just had to know,” the response will be. “Then,” Floyd explained, wrapping up his anecdote, “they buy me a beer.”

Dodgers' Scherzer planned NLCS Game 1 starter against Braves
“That is Scherzer being Scherzer,” teammate Cody Bellinger said. Scherzer is expected to face Braves left-hander Max Fried in Game 1 on Saturday night in an NLCS rematch. The Dodgers beat the Braves in seven games in last year's NLCS before winning the World Series. Following Thursday night's game, Robert said he understood “there might be a cost” in using Scherzer in the closing role as the Dodgers faced the quick turnaround before opening the NLCS. “He’s going to come back, I bet, tomorrow, and pitch against us and he’s going to be Max Scherzer,” Freeman said.
Opinion: Braves win NLCS opener vs. Dodgers, even if they didn't deserve the victory
It was a game, quite honestly, Atlanta had to win if they are going to advance to the World Series for the first time since 1999.

Twin Cities transit planners ponder a post-COVID future
Rides on most other commuter lines dropped by about half. COMMUTER LINES MAY SHRINKAnother sign of change for commuter lines can be seen on metro freeways. The Metropolitan Council studies these trends and has made a prediction: Commuter lines will shrink, and local-service lines will increase. These include the $532 million Gold Line to Woodbury and the $475 million Rush Line to White Bear Lake. Met Council spokeswoman Bonnie Kollodge said ridership on local routes — but not commuter routes — is a healthy 90 percent of pre-COVID use.
ASK IRA: Did Heat move with too much haste with 2021-22 roster?
Q: This is a classic case of hindsight being 20-20, but also of the pressures of being pressed by outside interests. In retrospect, in a perfect world the Heat could have waited on the full guarantee to Omer Yurtseven and the two-way to Marcus Garrett. At the moment, Omer has shown more the look of a two-way player. Similarly, if the Heat did not move on the two-way contract to Marcus Garrett they could have lost him just as they did with summer standout Dejon Jarreau to the Pacers. In a perfect world, the two-ways go to Yurtseven and Caleb Martin, and perhaps a non-guaranteed roster spot to either Garrett or Micah Potter.

Hot off the press: Ohio Stadium dedicated on Oct. 22, 1922
Ohio State University's football Buckeyes (though they weren't officially the Buckeyes until 1950) had outgrown Ohio Field, located at High Street and Woodrow Avenue, a decade before Ohio Stadium was officially dedicated on Oct. 21, 1922. Fans weren't a problem when a young Ohio State team faced the University of Michigan and the stadium was officially dedicated. The Buckeyes have not lost to Michigan in Ohio Stadium since 1990. Ohio Stadium was also home for the Columbus Crew from 1996 to 1998, while the team waited for its own venue — Mapfre Stadium — to be built. And some of the biggest music acts have played in Ohio Stadium, including Elton John, the Rolling Stoes, U2, Pink Floyd, George Strait, One Direction and Taylor Swift.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek earns Thomas Tuchel's trust with display of poise and power
Ruben Loftus-Cheek is 6ft 3in tall, and has a frame packed with muscle. He has impeccable control in tight areas, and he can shift through the gears when the space opens up. He can beat you in a fight and a race, and he can dribble past you if he wants. Loftus-Cheek has spent his adult career in a variety of positions, from central midfield to attacking midfield to winger and even occasionally to striker. Time and time again, Loftus-Cheek received the ball under pressure against Brentford and then spun clear, using that rare combination of size and balance to cruise past his opponents.

Protests in Athens as Beijing prepares for Games flame
The activists detained were 18-year-old Tibetan student Tsela Zoksang and 22-year-old Joey Siu, a U.S. citizen exiled from Hong Kong. The protest was made hours before a dress rehearsal in Greece's Olympia, site of the ancient Olympics, of the torch-lighting ceremony for the Games set for Monday. Instead, a backup flame from previous rehearsals was used by an actress playing the high priestess. More rain is expected on Monday, with human rights activists pledging more actions until Tuesday's flame handover to Chinese Games organisers in Athens. The Beijing 2008 Summer Games flame ceremony was also severely disrupted by a string of protests from human rights activists, which was the start of international demonstrations over China's human rights record leading up to the Olympics.

On Sunday, Rivera will be the third former assistant Reid has faced in this season’s first six weeks.

Sandor Martin stuns Mikey Garcia in massive upset
Mikey Garcia hadn’t fought in nearly two years before stepping into the ring for what was perceived as a tune-up fight Saturday in Fresno, California, against Sandor Martin. He outboxed Garcia from the start, countering effectively and giving Garcia fits with his movement and his angles. Story continuesBut Martin fought with the poise and the skill of a veteran and he systematically picked Garcia apart. Garcia said his layoff didn’t impact him and said he thought he’d won the fight. Martin said Garcia had given him an opportunity so he’d afford Garcia the same courtesy.

2 arrested in Athens for protesting Beijing Olympics
ATHENS, Greece - (AP) -- Two women attempted to hang a banner from the Acropolis in Athens Sunday morning in protest at the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics, and were detained by Greek police. ”The IOC is sending the world a message that it is ok to turn a blind eye to genocide and crimes against humanity in Hong Kong, Tibet, East Turkestan and Southern Mongolia," added Siu. The Olympic flame for the 24th Winter Games will be lit at Ancient Olympia Monday and handed over to the Chinese at a ceremony in Athens' Panathenian Stadium Tuesday. A protest against the staging of the summer Olympic Games by China previously took place in Athens in March 2008; a couple of dozen Greek and Tibetan activists tried unsuccessfully to interfere with the torch relay for that year's Summer Olympics.

England watch: The players who stated their case to be in Eddie Jones' squad on Monday
Genge seems certain to feature for England in November and Heyes, blooded against USA and Canada like Steward, must be in contention to back up Kyle Sinckler. On an afternoon to forget for understrength Worcester, which their captain Scott Baldwin labelled “embarrassing”, prospective England centre Ollie Lawrence found space hard to come by. Saturday was far from his best game for Exeter and he was still named player of the match by BT Sport. “His pace is as good as anything in the Premiership," said Exeter head coach Ali Hepher. After the 24-year-old's dramatic late try to seal victory over Wasps at the start of the month, the flanker gave Eddie Jones another timely nudge ahead of the England head coach finalising his squad for the autumn internationals.
Argentine judge indicts Spanish Franco-era minister on murder charges

Judge Maria Servini de Cuba, sitting in Buenos Aires, issued the ruling against Rodolfo Martin Villa, 87, interior minister between 1976 and 1979. Martin Villa told the Spanish newspaper ABC: “I am calm.

Alex Bishop and his Wild, Unprecedented Night
Bishop was thrust into action with the Leafs on Saturday night thanks in equal part to a Petr Mrazek injury and the harsh reality of the NHL salary cap. Ayres was in the building that night simply because it was his turn on the schedule to do so. But Bishop nonetheless relished his opportunity on Saturday night to leave a good taste in the fanbase's mouth when it came to emergency backups. Frankly, Bishop is not so much a fish out of water as he was just dropped into a bigger pond. "This is a pretty rare opportunity and not a lot of people get to experience moments like this," said Bishop.
