The vice presidential debate taking place this week has taken on a new significance after President Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis.
And in Sunday night's win over the 49ers, Jackson flexed his experience with a truly genius veteran move during the dramatic final minutes. With the ball at the 1-yard line and the Eagles up by 11, the game's refs were trying to suss out exactly where to place the football as the 49ers attempted to punch the ball into the end zone. When the refs turned away from the ball for just a second to speak with the other members of their crew, Jackson pounced: That is some next-level defensive play from Jackson.
Family tension between the Los Angeles Rams' Jalen Ramsey and the New York Giants' Golden Tate may have led to a brawl involving their teams in LA on Sunday. The two have been feuding off the field since Ramsey broke up with Tate's sister when she was pregnant with their second child in the summer of 2019, according to NFL.com and the New York Post. I'm not happy at all with the disrespect that he's shown towards my sister, and the things he's done in the past,” Tate told the tabloid last October after Ramsey posted photos with a new girlfriend.
Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia has had more than two seasons to turn his team into the winners he promised it'd be. The Lions are 1-3 and they allowed the New Orleans Saints to score 35 unanswered points against them on Sunday. Patricia is always full of excuses, and he gave a doozy during his news conference following the Lions' 35-29 loss to the Saints.
If you've made it this far without losing one of your top fantasy running backs to injury, congratulations. For the majority trying to find a bandaid fix until their main guy comes back or a long-term plan for the Saquon Barkley owners out there, Week 4 produced a few waiver wire gems for you to consider. It's unclear how long Nick Chubb will be out with a knee injury, and while Kareem Hunt figures to become the lead back in his absence, Johnson should get a decent amount of touches as well.
Driver Luca Corberi had a full-blown meltdown after crashing out of Sunday's World Karting Championship. The Italian star ripped off his car's bumper and threw it into oncoming traffic before tackling and punching one of his opponents after the race ended. The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) has opened an investigation into Corberi, but the 23-year-old has already apologized for his behavior and vowed to never race again.
American Danielle Collins has rounded out a historically unlikely octet of French Open women's quarterfinalists. Collins upset 30th-seeded Tunisian Ons Jabeur 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 on Tuesday to become the fifth unseeded player to make the quarters at Roland Garros. The match was postponed from Monday due to rain in Paris.
Two days after they called Adrian Killins Jr. up from the practice squad, the Eagles have waived the speedy undrafted rookie from UCF. Killins (5-8, 177) will hit the waiver wire and if he doesn't get claimed could end up back on the Eagles' practice squad. On Sunday, Killins made his NFL debut but it wasn't one to remember.
Giancarlo Stanton and the Bronx Bombers made themselves right at home in Petco Park on a warm October evening in Southern California. Stanton hit a grand slam in the ninth inning for New York's fourth home run of the game, and the Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 9-3 on Monday in the opener of their AL Division Series at Petco Park. Stanton homered to straightaway center field on a 2-2 pitch from John Curtiss.
Mock Draft 8.0: Celtics add needed scoring, size in Round 1 originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston The Boston Celtics season didn't have the kind of storybook ending that so many of its green-and-white clad followers were hoping for. As the disappointment of coming up short of bringing home another title settles in, the focus soon shifts towards how to be better for next season, a season whose start — much like Boston's place in the Eastern Conference hierarchy next season — remains uncertain. They'll be good, but will they be good enough to be the last team standing?
Premier League clubs embarked on a final flurry of spending on Monday before the international transfer window slammed shut. Manchester United and Arsenal made the biggest headlines on deadline day with deals for Edinson Cavani and Thomas Partey respectively. Heading into the final days of the transfer window, it seemed Jurgen Klopp's desires had been well catered for as he bolstered a squad that powered to the title last term and won the Champions League just two seasons ago.
Had C.J. Beathard started for the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night, the Philadelphia Eagles might be winless through the first quarter of the season. If there was ever an argument for eliminating automatic playoff berths for the division winners, it's the 2020 NFC East. Through four games, the four NFC East teams have combined for three wins, and one came when the Washington Football Team beat the Eagles.
Tom Brady sets iconic NFL record with Buccaneers' win vs. Chargers originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston No player in NFL history has won more games than Tom Brady. Literally. The Buccaneers quarterback won his 222nd career regular season game Sunday afternoon when Tampa Bay beat the Los Angeles Chargers 38-31 at Raymond James Stadium.
Fans aren't feeling Kyle Kuzma this year, with some even creating a Change.org petition that says he shouldn't get a ring if the Lakers clinch the NBA Finals. It's clear that some fans feel like Kuzma has failed to live up to expectations that Los Angeles had for him, and that he's a liability to the team. “Kyle Kuzma is a f*ckboi and he shouldn't get a ring if the LA Lakers win the 2020 NBA Finals,” the petition reads.
In a tightly contested game between the Kansas City chiefs and New England Patriots, there are going to be emotions running high. Officials missed an interception call that would have put New England in good field position towards the end of the first half. Instead, they blew the play dead and Kansas City proceeded to punt the ball away.
Baseball's going to have to learn to live with this baseball team from Houston, apparently. While other teams — and there are seven others out there — were learning to shut out the silence of empty ballparks, of empty hotel rooms, of a season that asked at least as much of them as citizens as it did players, the Astros are still most adept at quieting the noise. No, the Astros would be left to hoist themselves from a muck of their own making, while the rest of the game tossed to them not a pole and a way out but more muck.
The Green Bay Packers needed someone to step forward when injuries left their top two wide receivers unavailable. Tonyan caught three of Aaron Rodgers' four touchdown passes, Za'Darius Smith recorded three sacks and the Packers remained unbeaten with a 30-16 victory over the winless Atlanta Falcons on Monday night. ''I just had to continue to do what I've been doing, just keep playing well and stick to the game plan,'' Tonyan said.
Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed have both won majors. Both have won on the PGA Tour this year, and both are likely to factor in U.S. team events for years to come. They're also both betting favorites this week, albeit on opposite sides of the Atlantic.
Don't worry, not even Tyler Herro knows where that face came from on Sunday night. Herro, after sinking a layup in the final minute of their 115-104 win against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, broke out a wild mean mug snarl. I've never really made that face before' That face, Herro said on Monday, was a new one.
For the second Grand Slam in succession a line judge was in the firing line from Novak Djokovic but on Monday it did not cost the Serb anything more than an anxious moment. Top seed Djokovic lunged to make a service return in the eighth game against Karen Khachanov in their French Open fourth-round clash and the ball ricocheted off his frame and straight into the head of a male line judge. On that occasion Djokovic swiped a ball behind him towards the backstop after losing a point and inadvertently hit a female line judge in the throat -- leaving tournament officials no choice but to disqualify him.
The inaugural Blessings Collegiate Invitational is pretty unique. Five balls with the same school logo in play is a recipe for chaos and it was a dish served cold for the Georgia men during Monday's first round at Blessings Golf Club in Fayetteville, Arkansas. “We had two guys hit the wrong ball,” said head coach Chris Haack to Golf Channel during an on-course interview.
