Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson addresses the media after a Week 3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. This game is streaming live on the Yahoo Sports mobile app, or on NFL Network
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick loves to take away what an offense does best. It's not exactly what every coach wants out of his quarterback (and perhaps that's in part why the Raiders' Jon Gruden is so non-committal to Carr), but that's simply the truth with Carr, whose yards per attempt average is 6.9 for his career. Belichick's a damn genius I never have seen a defense do this before.

In his 10th NBA Finals, he sees his first opportunity with the Los Angeles Lakers the same way he viewed his trips in Cleveland and Miami. The game is won between the four lines, not won on paper,'' James said. At the end of the day, when I've lost in the finals, the better team won because they played well, they were more prepared and they did what they needed to do to win those four games.

McNabb calls out Jerry Jones for strange Dak comments originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia Cowboys owner Jerry Jones always keeps us guessing. The Cowboys are 1-2 through three weeks this season, but could easily be 3-0 if a few plays broke their way.

The best player had never been past the second round of the playoffs before this season. The starting center wasn't good enough to make a USA Basketball World Cup team that went to China last year and managed to only finish seventh. And the Heat have been the NBA's best team this season in basically two categories: true shooting percentage (which is good) and double-digit leads blown (which is not).
Doc Rivers' departure from the Los Angeles Clippers stunned the NBA on Monday. The Clippers were fresh off a hugely disappointing end to a season that started with championship expectations. ESPN's Ramona Shelburne and Ohm Youngmisuk reported Tuesday on Ballmer's process and the steps that led to Rivers' departure, which was ultimately sealed when the two sides couldn't come together on a vision for next season.
Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler celebrated Tyler Herro's 37-point outburst in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals by wearing the rookie's high school jersey to the team's practice the following day. After the Heat clinched a spot in the NBA Finals two games later, Butler dug even deeper into his closet for the perfect sartorial tribute — a University of Portland jersey with Erik Spoelstra's name and number on the back. “I've got quite a few jerseys tucked away in my room — it's just when is the right time to pull them out,” Butler said Tuesday on the eve of his NBA Finals debut.
The Yankees are perhaps better equipped than most organizations for scouting in the year of Covid, when evaluators can't enter ballparks to lay eyes on an upcoming opponent. While Aaron Judge, Brett Gardner and others starred on the field in embarrassing Cleveland ace Shane Bieber and winning Game 1 of the Wild Card series 12-3, the team's advance crew were also heroes of this massive win -- and they did it without the typical benefit of watching Bieber in person in the weeks leading up to the postseason. Bieber will win the American League Cy Young Award this year, but you wouldn't know it from watching him allow seven runs in 4.2 innings on Tuesday.
The 17-year NBA veteran gives his thoughts on the championship series between the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Miami Heat have one tool to beat the Lakers in the Finals originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington "There is absolutely no chance on earth the Miami Heat beat the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2020 NBA Finals!"

Seriously, who is bidding against a laser-focused LeBron James hellbent on bringing LA its first championship in 10 years?

Israel Adesanya took his UFC 253 celebration(s) a step too far after putting on a clinic against previously unbeaten Paulo Costa in their much-anticipated pay-per-view main event on Saturday in Abu Dhabi. The middleweight champion delivered precision kick after kick before catching Costa in the second round with a powerful left hook that knocked the Brazilian down.
