FFL Flash Alert - Now the main man in Dallas, will the Cowboys QB deliver on Monday night?
We noted before today's game in Pittsburgh that Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield might not be able to finish, and it turns out he didn't. Mayfield was pulled in the third quarter with the Browns trailing the Steelers 31-7. Mayfield was clearly affected by the rib injury that had him listed as questionable for the game on the injury report.
Howie Roseman reportedly 'on the prowl' as trade deadline nears originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia Despite the Eagles' having a 1-3-1 record, Howie Roseman might not be able to help himself. The NFL's Nov. 3 trade deadline is rapidly approaching and with the NFC East remaining very winnable, the Eagles are reportedly interested in being buyers again at this year's deadline. According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Eagles GM Howie Roseman “has already sent signals to multiple teams that he is interested in acquiring some of their talent if they are open to it.
We've never seen a Pats loss like this in the Belichick era originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston Bill Belichick's New England Patriots are used to making history. They're just not used to being on this side of it. The previously 1-3 Denver Broncos stunned the Patriots at Gillette Stadium on Sunday in an 18-12 upset victory, handing New England it's first home loss of the season.
Phil Mickelson likes to play aggressively and found the PGA Tour Champions' stop at The Country Club of Virginia the perfect place to begin his preparations for the Masters. Bombing drives like he will have to do against the younger set on the PGA Tour, Mickelson shot a 7-under 65 and became the third player — and second this year — to win his first two starts on the tour for players 50 and older. “It's fun for me to come out here and play well and this is a good start for me as I try to build a little bit of momentum heading to Augusta in about a month,” Mickelson said.
While the Lakers should be dealing with parade logistics and texting each other hangover cures as they celebrate title No. 17, the reality of the NBA offseason comes fast. With Rajon Rondo and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope expected to exercise their player options and become free-agents this summer (Avery Bradley and JaVale McGee can join them), the Lakers need to look at their roster around LeBron James and Anthony Davis (AD will opt out but he's not going anywhere). Los Angeles has just two rotation players under age 26 (Kyle Kuzma and Alex Caruso), and it needs more shooting and playmaking.
Rest assured, they will, but it will be the only significant expenditure they make on a player in a winter where, like almost every other team in baseball, they will be otherwise looking to cut payroll. By not bringing back Masahiro Tanaka, J.A. Happ and James Paxton, that's about $52 million alone. Here's the bottom line on what this season without fans has wrought on baseball: Every team in baseball has lost a minimum of $100 million — the larger market teams like the Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies, between $175 and $200 million.
Joey Logano scored his third win of the season, but first since March 8, Sunday at Kansas Speedway to become the first driver to advance to the Nov. 8 championship race at Phoenix Raceway. Logano held off Kevin Harvick in leading the last 45 laps. Harvick finished second and was followed by Alex Bowman, Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch, who remains winless this season.
The Adam Gase-Gregg Williams tension has a new chapter during the New York Jets' trying season. Williams, the Jets' defensive coordinator, appeared to throw shade at the team's offense — run by Gase — on Friday. Then during Sunday's broadcast against the Miami Dolphins, the CBS announcing crew reported that Gase fired back at Williams' comments to them behind closed doors.
The players were asked to assess the state of their alma mater's football program in Year 6 of Jim Harbaugh's tenure as coach. As Michigan approaches the 2020 season, the tradition-rich program confronts an uncomfortable reality that it has stagnated under the leadership of a man who was expected to restore the Wolverines as a top-tier program. Since Harbaugh arrived with considerable fanfare in December 2014, Michigan has never competed for the Big Ten title in Indianapolis.
Derrick Henry is a freight train. And no one knows how to stop the Tennessee Titans' star running back once he gets going. Henry has more than 200 rushing yards against the Houston Texans on Sunday and almost half came on this 94-yard TD run.
The Eagles have one win in six games this season. Against all odds, after a scoreless first half and a 16-point deficit midway through the fourth quarter, the Eagles lined up for a two-point conversion with less than two minutes to play and a chance to tie the game.
Sergio Agüero, the Manchester City forward, has come under attack for placing his hand on the neck and shoulder of assistant referee Sian Massey-Ellis. The national charity for football referees on Sunday night called for a “line to be drawn in the sand” after Agüero's conduct during the 1-0 win against Arsenal drew widespread condemnation. Agüero had stepped towards Massey-Ellis to complain about the award of a 42nd-minute throw-in to Arsenal and then placed his left hand on the assistant referee's neck and shoulder as she walked back up the touchline.
Several former Black Iowa football players sent a letter to the university earlier this month demanding $20 million and that longtime Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz, assistant coach Brian Ferentz and athletic director Gary Barta be fired over allegations of racial discrimination during their time with the program, according to The Des Moines Register's Chad Leistikow. Dozens of former Iowa players have spoken out in recent months about their experiences playing for Ferentz in Iowa City, many of whom said they felt they were treated unfairly and were unable to be themselves on Ferentz's teams because they were Black. Many complaints were directed toward strength coach Chris Doyle, too, who was put on administrative leave and later reached a separation agreement with the school.
Ozuna left early on what would have been a sacrifice fly with his team leading in the third inning, and the game soon turned in Los Angeles' favor as the Dodgers stayed alive in the NL Championship Series with a 7-3 victory in Game 5 on Friday night. The Braves still have a 3-2 series lead after a bullpen game that started well but went awry, with their top two starters lined up for the final two games. Left-hander Max Fried pitches for the NL East champions on Saturday.
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James didn't take a lengthy break after winning the NBA Finals. Less than a week after beating the Miami Heat in Game 6, James was back in the gym. James, 35, even showed off his new workout partner, his daughter Zhuri.
Best is yet to come in this Phillies trade that just keeps getting better and better originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia As baseball's offseason takes shape, we will take a look at each player on the Phillies 2020 roster and where they fit in the future. We'll go through the roster by uniform number, lowest to highest for position players, highest to lowest for pitchers, and alternate daily. Today: Starting pitcher Zach Eflin Career rundown Acquired in a trade by former general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., Eflin has been part of the Phillies' starting rotation for five seasons and a mainstay for three.
When it comes to boxing records, it doesn't get much more dominant than Edgar Berlanga right now. The Puerto Rican 23-year-old scored a first-round TKO against Lanell Bellows to open Saturday's Top Rank card. It was Berlanga's 15th straight first-round knockout to improve his career record to 15-0.
Tyrrell Hatton is the gift that keeps on giving all year long. For example, way back in March before the PGA Tour's 13-week COVID-19 hiatus, Hatton hilariously blew up on the 11th hole at Bay Hill on Sunday of the Arnold Palmer Invitational with an outburst Happy Gilmore would've certainly applauded. After making a double bogey, Hatton used his putter as a pretend gun, fired off a pretend shot at the pond that consumed his drive, then flipped it off for good measure.
Andy Dalton has never passed for more than 4,293 yards in a season, but he also hasn't had the weapons the Cowboys have. He has started 133 career games, winning 70 of those, and has more experience than Prescott. Prescott had started 69 games in a row, with now offensive coordinator Kellen Moore the last quarterback not named Dak Prescott to start at quarterback in a game for the Cowboys.
