From the minute Haskins was drafted, there have been questions about his maturity and work ethic, and despite his obvious physical talents, many, including myself, have always worried those questions would get in the way of his growth. According to 106.7 The Fan's Grant Paulsen, Haskins was heard by teammates bragging about his numbers after Washington's 31-17 loss to the Ravens this past Sunday -- and they weren't happy. "One thing I heard from multiple people was that the final straw for Dwayne Haskins, okay — take this for what it's worth — was that a lot of people with the team, including some players, but also some coaches, did not like how he was acting after this past weekend's loss t...
Snoop Dogg is one of several Lakers fans who is teeming with disappointment at the Lakers NBA Finals Game 5 defeat to Miami Heat, which landed at 111-108. Namely, Snoop's point of contention is aimed at Danny Green for his performance in the nail-biting final seconds of the game. Following a pair of successful free throws from Jimmy Butler that one-upped the scoreboard for the Heat, LeBron James gained the ball up the court with only 16 seconds remaining.
The Miami Heat's belief never died. Not in the face of a 40-point performance by LeBron James on Friday, not in the face of a dizzying fourth-quarter push by the Lakers that seemed fated to end with stored-up confetti falling from the rafters and the Lakers clutching the Larry O'Brien Trophy as the NBA champions. For each punch delivered by the Lakers — and they unleashed many blows that wounded the Heat's defense and tested their physical and mental reserves — Miami had a resounding response.
Bryson DeChambeau was disappointed with a few shots he hit during Friday's second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. After grabbing a share of the lead in the BMW Championship in England, the flagship event of the European Tour, Fitzpatrick had a few choice words for what DeChambeau is doing to the game with his eye-popping power. Fitzpatrick called on golf's governing bodies to clamp down on the distance gains DeChambeau has achieved since he transformed his swing and body after adding nearly 50 pounds of mass.
If you're looking for a tangible reason why the Chicago Bears offense will improve with Nick Foles as the starting quarterback, one key sequence in Thursday night's 20-19 victory over the Buccaneers provided some hope – even though the result was nearly catastrophic. With 14:10 left in the fourth quarter, the Bears trailed 16-14, but they had the ball and a first down at the Bucs' 30-yard-line. Foles moved running back David Montgomery into the backfield and handed him the ball for seven-yard gain (the team's best run of the night, by the way).
The Bears appeared to seal 20-19 victory over the Buccaneers in amazing fashion: with a mental error by Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady. After the Bears took the lead on former Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos' field goal with 1 minute, 13 seconds to play, many viewers thought Chicago had left Brady too much time to mount a comeback. With the Buccaneers facing fourth-and-6 from their own 41-yard line, Brady tried to complete a pass down field to tight end Cameron Brate.
It will also put the Celtics on the clock to determine whether Hayward is part of this team's long-term future, and that's a far more difficult decision based on the team's bloating salary commitment as it attempts to maximize a title window that seemed to open this year given the leaps Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown made. Letting Hayward play out his deal leaves open the possibility of him walking away at season's end without compensation. That's less than ideal for a Boston team that has limited means to upgrade its roster given the salary commitment to its top-end talent.

The NFL usually suspends players. Recently, NFL Network suspended its top information gatherer/provider/reciter. Ian Rapoport issued a statement to PFT on Friday night explaining that he'll be off the air until October 22 because “I posted something to my social channels without clearance from NFL Network, which went against its guidelines.”
1. Gerrit Cole struggled early on - he allowed two walks and a hit-by-pitch to load the bases for Joey Wendle with two outs in the first inning. Cole fell behind 3-0 to the lefty, but fought all the way back to punch Wendle out looking - he made sure to give the chatty Rays' dugout a stare down too. 2. Tyler Glasnow retired all but one batter in his first two innings of work, including Giancarlo Stanton and Gleyber Torres, who grounded out and flied out on 3-0 counts in the second frame.
Report: Salary breakdown of Torey Krug's Blues contract revealed originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston Former Boston Bruins defenseman Torey Krug earned a well-deserved payday at the beginning of NHL free agency by agreeing to sign a long term deal with the St. Louis Blues. The two sides came to terms on a seven-year contract worth $45.5 million ($6.5 million per season) on Friday. In addition to a nice raise from his last contract -- a four-year, $21 million pact with Boston -- Krug also received some no-trade protection from the Blues.
Gruden's wife, son will be among fans at Raiders-Chiefs game originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea Raiders coach Jon Gruden has a personal reason to be excited for his team to play in front of fans for the first time this season.

He goes to the University of Kansas and he still can't explain why he's going to Kansas to me,” Gruden said with a laugh on Friday.

As darkness fell on Aronimink, Sei Young Kim's fire lit up the board as she put the finishing touches on a 5-under 65. 4-7) to shoot 6-under 29 on the front nine and take the midway lead at the KPMG Women's PGA at 4-under 136. A 10-time winner on the LPGA without a major title, 27-year-old Kim has yet to finish outside the top 25 in five appearances at this championship.
Novak Djokovic set up a blockbuster French Open title showdown with Rafael Nadal after a dramatic five-set semi-final victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas, but insisted Sunday's eagerly-awaited championship duel will "not be the biggest match of my life." World number one Djokovic, the 2016 champion at Roland Garros, reached his fifth final in Paris, defeating Greek fifth seed Tsitsipas 6-3, 6-2, 5-7, 4-6, 6-1 in a roller-coaster of a contest where he had held a match point in the third set.

In this week's edition we celebrate, that's right celebrate, Bryson DeChambeau's quest for distance and a PGA Tour schedule that walks the fine line between safety and, well, Las Vegas. A couple of items of note from Big Bryson's first start since he did the thing no one thought he could do at Winged Foot: DeChambeau posted 10 drives over 300 yards on Thursday and he was particularly lethal at the par-4 seventh hole where he became the first player in the ShotLink era to drive the green (361 yards). As impressive as all that is, it's worth noting that not one of those monster drives featured a golf-ball speed of 200 mph or better, which is DeChambeau's current benchmark for distance.

Frank Vogel will be writing a check to the league in the next 48 hours. Vogel spoke for a Lakers' team frustrated by the calls Jimmy Butler got in the final two minutes of the Heat's Game 5 win Sunday. One was on Markieff Morris, and the one foul Butler drew on Anthony Davis led to the free throws that put the Heat up for good with 16.8 seconds left.
Television ratings for the NBA Finals have been at a historic low. Game 3's 5.9 million viewers were the fewest for an NBA Finals game ever (at least since 1984 when they started tracking Finals numbers). The second-lowest was Game 2 of these 2020 NBA Finals.
