Two months ahead of their scheduled head-to-head, boxer Roy Jones Jr. is admitting he may have “made a mistake” when he agreed to fight in an exhibition with former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson. According to reports, Jones and Tyson were originally supposed to fight this month, but promoters pushed the exhibition back to attract a larger audience. Now the duo is set to compete in an unofficial bout on Nov. 28 in Carson, California.
On a chilly morning in December 1993, Terry Bradshaw was sleeping soundly in his hotel bed when he was awakened by the sound of the phone next to him. It was Greg Gumbel, Bradshaw's coworker on “NFL Today.” The time in New York was 4:30, and Bradshaw figured the messenger was delivering grim information. “Did you hear the news?” Gumbel asked.
It's forbidden — and expensive — for coaches to use cell phones during games. Raiders coach Jon Gruden, however, won't be making an involuntary contribution to the charity of the NFL's choice for using a cell phone while leaving the field after the first half of Sunday's game at Carolina. According to the NFL, Gruden was conducting a two-question interview with the sideline reporter.
Justin Thomas has led the backlash against the LPGA, accusing the organisation of “costing” fellow American Nelly Korda victory in the season's second major by trying to please a sponsor. Korean Mirim Lee beat Korda and Canadian Brooke Henderson on the first hole of a play-off at the Ana Inspiration on Sunday night, but by then the purists were already in full cry about the ludicrous scenario on the par-five 18th. The last at the famous Mission Hill course in Palm Springs features an “island green”, but in its wisdom, the LPGA elected to place a huge advertising hoarding across the back of the putting surface.
Bucks tell Giannis they will spend big, but trades more likely originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington Following their disappointing exit in the second round of the playoffs, Milwaukee Bucks ownership has reportedly made a promise to superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo that they will now commit more money towards building a championship team. According to ESPN, they are now willing to go into the luxury tax after avoiding taking the plunge so far during their rise with Antetokounmpo at the helm. That approach famously led to the departure of Malcolm Brogdon, who they sorely miss.
Dan Orlovsky says Carson Wentz is the sole reason the Eagles lost originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington Former NFL quarterback and ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky has gone on the record over the past few years as one of the biggest supporters for Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. However, after Wentz's up-and-down performance on Sunday in the Eagles' Week 1 loss to the Washington Football Team in which Philadelphia blew a 17-0 lead, Orlovsky had little positive things to say about the quarterback. "He's the reason they lost the football game," Orlovsky said on ESPN's Get Up on Monday.
Nostalgia plays well at Winged Foot, so it was fitting to see Michael O'Keefe back at work Monday with a familiar red Bushwood hat on his head and a cumbersome Titleist staff bag on his shoulder. The 65-year-old actor was a caddie here for two summers and went on to play Danny Noonan in Caddyshack. The introduction was made by golf instructor and television commentator Michael Breed and Monday, at 8:51 a.m., Noonan and Balin were off to scout the back nine.
The first weekend of the NFL was marked by widespread social justice activism as a lack of fan interest led to a near-record ratings collapse. More than four years after Colin Kaepernick became better known for bending his knee than his elbow, players across the league knelt, linked arms, or remained in their locker rooms during the national anthem. In other instances, whole teams remained in the locker room until after Star-Spangled Banner and Lift Every Voice and Sing, sometimes referred to as the black anthem.
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay suffered a foot injury during a “Monday Night Football” contest against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1. Lindsay did not return to the sideline after halftime and the team announced late in the third quarter that the running back has been ruled out. In the first half, Lindsay rushed seven times for 24 yards and caught one pass for 11 yards.
Although the Giants had some life to them and they hustled, they were no match for the Steelers, who had Ben Roethlisberger under center and a defensive front that just simply dominated the Giants' new-look offensive line. The Giants surprisingly put quite a bit of pressure on Big Ben, sacking him twice, but the future Hall of Famer made the best of his opportunities, tossing three touchdowns — one to James Washington and two to JuJu Smith-Schuster. The Giants scored their first touchdown on a 41-yard touchdown strike from Jones (26/41, 279 yards, 2 TD, 2 INT for a 79.2 QBR) to wide receiver Darius Slayton.
The Commander-in-Chief's Trophy series is moving forward this season amid the COVID-19 pandemic and a strange landscape across the college football world, and Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo doesn't understand why. People at the Pentagon have pushed the series through despite scheduling conflicts and other pandemic-related issues, Niumatalolo said, even though they “have no idea what is going on with the programs.” The Commander-in-Chief's Trophy is awarded each season to the winner of games between the three service academy schools: Army, Navy and Air Force.
Cam Newton was clicking in his new offense with the New England Patriots. The quarterback had an equal number completions (15) to his carries (15), which was something of an oddity. But he completed 79% of his passes for 155 yards while his rushes went for a team-high 75 yards and two touchdowns.
The Steelers are closing in on a victory over the Giants, but the first game of the season took a toll on the team's health. Right tackle Zack Banner had to be helped off the field without putting weight on his right leg after going down on a play that saw Ben Roethlisberger hit JuJu Smith-Schuster for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Banner had tears in his eyes while getting encouraging pats on the back from teammates who then helped him to a cart for a ride to the locker room.
The Miami Heat are the only obstacle left in the Boston Celtics' path to the 2020 NBA Finals. The two Eastern Conference underdogs, who earned the No. 5 and 3 seeds respectively, are set to face off in what should be a thrilling conference finals series.

The Tennessee Titans were down a key defensive starter early on in the Week 1 win over the Denver Broncos after inside linebacker Rashaan Evans was ejected in the first quarter. Evans got into a scuffle with Broncos tight end Jake Butt that resulted in the linebacker throwing a punch, leading to his ejection. Following the game, Evans was contrite about his mistake and vowed to make up for it, per Erik Bacharach of the Tennessean.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow tends to make headlines with whatever he does after standing as the draft's top pick and performing well enough over the summer to earn the starting job right out of the gates. Case in point, Burrow rocking a smooth fit as he entered Paul Brown Stadium for his first NFL start. Fittingly, the look featured smooth implementation of purple and yellow for LSU just a few hours after the LSU Tigers themselves released an amazing hype video about Burrow's first NFL start.
Gruden ribs Carr for using coach's wife's name as audible originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea Jon Gruden heard that strange audible during the Raiders' win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, and his reaction Monday was quintessentially quippy. Quarterback Derek Carr called an audible of "Cindy Gruden-Tiger Woods" during the first quarter of the Raiders' 34-30 win in Charlotte, which was loud enough to hear on Sunday's broadcast from an empty Bank of America Stadium. When Gruden was asked how his wife and the golf legend ended up in a call, the coach jokingly pleaded the fifth.
The details of a gritty U.S. Open win remain vivid nearly five decades later, but there's not even a hint of hyperbole when Hale Irwin replays a memorable week that's recorded in history as the Massacre at Winged Foot. With a little encouragement, Irwin offers a little more. Many of the best players in the game walked off the West Course scarred – Johnny Miller, Gary Player and Tom Watson among them.
The ones that rained down inside TD Garden during the Boston Celtics' 2016 draft party when owner Wyc Grousbeck took the stage to announce the team had used the No. 3 pick to nab Jaylen Brown. Firework-hungry Celtics fans wanted the team to make a big-splash move for a more proven commodity, not take a raw 19-year-old kid coming off a somewhat underwhelming lone college season.
