RG3 has a question for Chiefs fans who booed moment of silence originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington Prior to the start of the NFL season opener between the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans on Thursday, both teams took to midfield at Arrowhead Stadium to lock arms with one another for a moment silence dedicated to the ongoing fight for equality in America. A moment meant to bring everyone together, some fans in the capacity-limited crowd in Kansas City showed they apparently weren't fans of unity. A smattering of boos could be heard during the silence.
After three full-time seasons with the team, Bubba Wallace will not return to Richard Petty Motorsports in 2021, Wallace and the team confirmed Thursday. Wallace will make nine more starts in the No. Chevrolet this season before moving on to an undisclosed team.
The NFL's practice squad rules, like everything else in 2020, is much different than it's been in the past. Practice squads can hold 16 players, instead of the traditional 10 that coaches and general managers are used to. Two players can be promoted to the active roster each week, but they can only get promoted twice in a season.
Instead of staying in Wine Country for two more rounds, Spieth knew he had to decide whether to head home to Texas for a couple days of rest or head to New York for some extra prep time at Winged Foot ahead of next week's U.S. Open. Looking for mini-victories as he tries to emerge from a slump lasting more than two years, Spieth was on the cutline and on the ninth hole of the North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa when his travel itinerary changed as quickly as his second shot on the par-5 banged off a tree limb and headed straight into a hazard. Thinking he needed to make birdie to feel comfortable about making the cut, Spieth had to take a drop and made double-bogey 7 and packed his bags.
As a weary Serena Williams packed her bags and left Flushing Meadows in the early hours of Friday morning, her latest bid for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title snuffed out in the semi-finals of the US Open, one question was left hanging in the balmy night air: if not now, when? For nearly four years, Williams has been trading groundstrokes with Father Time as she attempts to add one more Grand Slam title to her collection, cementing her claim to be the greatest women's tennis player ever seen. Certainly, throughout her career, be it returning from serious illness to dominate her sport, or from continuing to compete at the highest level at an age when most of her contemporaries have long since retired, Williams has repeatedly demonstrated that writing her off is a mug's game.
I mean, what a wonderful way to end the day and also just really weird. Being the last hole, it's so final. Higgs said he knew he hit it on the button and then he heard a volunteer stationed just left of the green scream, “It's in the hole, it's in the hole!
Start 'Em or Sit 'Em is geared toward season-long leagues but can also be used for daily fantasy purposes. Anybody can tell you to start the Lamar Jacksons, Joe Mixons, and Chris Godwins of the world. Start of the Week: Dak Prescott at Rams -- Fantasy's overall QB2 last season, Prescott set career highs in passing yards, touchdowns, completions, and pass attempts, while matching his previous career best with a 5% touchdown rate.
What Redick's wife said to him after Warriors won 2015 title originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea JJ Redick's teams reached the NBA playoffs every year over the first 13 seasons of his career. But the streak was snapped in August when the New Orleans Pelicans failed to punch their ticket to the postseason. The 36-year-old appeared in the 2009 NBA Finals as a member of the Orlando Magic, but he has not been back to basketball's biggest stage since.
A section of supporters within the stadium jeered loudly as players from both teams linked arms before kick-off for what the league had described as "a moment of silence dedicated to the ongoing fight for equality in our country". "How can you be more upset about bringing awareness to racism than racism itself?" Baltimore Ravens quarterback Robert Griffin III wrote on Twitter. Fewer than a quarter of the stadium's seats were occupied due to COVID-19 restrictions but a scatter of boos mixed into cheers were audible to Texans' defensive end J.J. Watt.
The Lakers dominated for almost 48 minutes and the “almost” almost cost the Lakers late in Game 4. The Lakers are adding dimensions, and by doing it now, it'll make them even better. The fact that LeBron James trusted Caruso in the right corner with the Lakers on the ropes late – you can sense that he's earned the right to close games.
There isn't much danger long for those players looking to go for the par-5 18th green in two shots this week at the ANA Inspiration. “I was actually thinking about what 18 would be like without the bleachers, because visually, that is just a protector for most of us,” said Madelene Sagstrom, who shot 67. First-round leader Nelly Korda said that fellow competitor Megan Khang threw a ball underneath the structure and it still rolled into the water behind the green.
“Hopefully, we can build a culture in Milwaukee for many years that we can come out here and compete every single year for a championship.” The Bucks will offer Antetokounmpo a supermax contract this offseason, and if he doesn't sign it then things get interesting. Whether he signs the extension or not, Milwaukee has work to do to make this work (and maybe keep him).
Unfortunately, it's against a Steelers Defense that allowed by far the fewest quarterback fantasy points in 2019. That was due in large part to teams not having to pass against a noncompetitive Steelers Offense, but that elite D did not get worse over the offseason. Jimmy Garoppolo was the QB22 by average points last season.
Tom Brady made the shocking move of leaving the New England Patriots for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the offseason and he revealed in a recent interview his family is still adjusting. Brady appeared on the latest episode of Dax Shepard's podcast “Armchair Expert.” The 43-year-old opened up about life in Tampa and the struggle of moving to a completely new city with his wife Gisele Bundchen and their children. Brady said another issue his daughter had was the Tampa heat, something which the six-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback said he loved and that he was never going back to the cold.
The Broncos are scrambling for a replacement for Von Miller, and at least one of their options has told them “No, thanks.” According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, former Rams and Packers linebacker Clay Matthews sent word to the Broncos he was not going to play. There was a report of interest from the Seahawks in early August, otherwise things have been quiet in terms of Matthews actually playing again.
It seems like most Knicks fans are over the Kevin Durant-to-New York story – but something about Durant's comments on JJ Redick's podcast this week are relevant to the current team. When New York traded Kristaps Porzingis to Dallas to create enough cap space for two max players, there were people in the organization who felt confident that they were going to sign both Durant and Kyrie Irving. The Knicks obviously had a bad read on the situation, given Durant said that he decided in February or March that he was going to the Nets.
Why the Phillies let Neil Walker go 9 days after he won a game for them originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia Nine days after helping the Phillies beat the Washington Nationals and three-time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer, Neil Walker is gone. The 35-year-old utilityman was designated for assignment before Friday night's doubleheader against Miami. He was replaced on the roster by another utilityman, Ronald Torreyes, who had been at the Phillies' satellite camp in Lehigh Valley.
Tiger Woods didn't show his stripes, but he still left his mark in Southwest Florida this week. PopStroke had a soft opening for its second golf entertainment facility, and first with Woods' involvement that included the PGA star as an ownership partner all the way down to his playing a role in designing the two putting courses. “PopStroke at its core is really about bringing friends and family together and in an outdoor, open-air … dynamic environment,” said Bartoli, who credited TGR Design President Bryon Bell for the layout and Fort Myers-based Stevens Construction for making it through some of the obstacles created by the coronavirus pandemic to get the facility opened on time.
One came late in regulation, when Jayson Tatum drove and passed… directly to Toronto coach Nick Nurse, who was standing near Celtics center Daniel Theis in the corner. Nurse was hunched over and touching the out-of-bounds lines – maybe even crossing them at one point. Tatum, via Darren Hartwell of NBC Sports Boston: “That was my fault.
The Dallas Cowboys are working dilligently to prepare for the eventual Dak Prescott contract standoff in 2021. One way they can do this is to create cap space in 2020, with the intention to roll it over after the season. Dallas has added a voidable year and restructured Lawrence's deal to change his 2020 base salary into a bonus that hits the cap across five seasons.
