Following the New England Patriots' 18-12 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, coach Bill Belichick hammered one specific point home as a reason for defeat. Following COVID-19 outbreaks within the organization, Patriots did not get to practice much leading up to Sunday's game, with one full practice and one walkthrough. The organization had to close the practice facility on Saturday as a result of new positive tests.
Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Chargers fans have had multiple weeks to enjoy their rookie first-round quarterbacks, and Joe Burrow and Justin Herbert have done well. Miami Dolphins fans hadn't seen any of Tua Tagovailoa, the fifth pick of the NFL draft, and that included a preseason canceled due to the coronavirus. Through five games, Tagovailoa hadn't taken a snap.
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.

When Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa made his NFL debut during the final drive of Sunday's 24-0 annihilation of the New York Jets, no one appeared happier than the man he will one day replace, Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick knows this is his team only temporarily. Fitzpatrick is seventh in the league in QBR and should remain in that territory after tossing three touchdowns against the Jets.
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.
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.
West Ham ruined Gareth Bale's Tottenham return with a stunning late fightback from three goals down to rescue a thrilling 3-3 draw, while Aston Villa extended their perfect start with a dramatic 1-0 win at Leicester on Sunday. Tottenham were leading 3-0 when Bale came on as a 72nd minute substitute for his first appearance since joining on a season-long loan from Real Madrid. But he suffered a debut to forget as Tottenham capitulated in astonishing fashion.
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 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.
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.
Mickelson flew ahead on his final nine to win the Dominion Energy Charity Classic at The Country Club of Virginia on Sunday, marking his second win in two starts on the PGA Tour Champions — the PGA Tour's senior tour. He finished with a 7-under 65, thanks to four birdies in his final six holes, to grab a three-stroke win over Mike Weir. Mickelson is now just the third player in the tour's history to win his first two starts, and the second this year after Jim Furyk accomplished the feat at The Ally Challenge and Pure Insurance Championship.
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.
The Pittsburgh Steelers made a huge statement on Sunday by routing the Cleveland Browns 38-7. However, it came at a cost. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin addressed injuries after the game and the news wasn't great.
This amazing Patriots streak and NFL record ended with loss to Broncos originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston The New England Patriots aren't used to having a losing record, especially this late into the calendar. The Denver Broncos went into Gillette Stadium for Sunday afternoon's Week 6 game and defeated the Patriots 18-12. The loss drops the Patriots to 2-3, which means their NFL record streak of 225 consecutive games played in October or later with at least a .

The Los Angeles Lakers looked like a disaster at the end of the 2018-19 season, thanks to poor team chemistry, a dysfunctional organizational structure, sloppy head-coaching search, and limited means to improve. The Lakers overhauled their roster by landing Anthony Davis, who wanted to go to L.A. because LeBron James had joined the Lakers. Key members of the Lakers, from team owner Jeannie Buss to GM Rob Pelinka, to LeBron James, also made commitments to improving and putting in hard work.
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.
