In said loss, quarterback Baker Mayfield and star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. could never quite get on the same page -- OBJ finished with just three receptions for 22 yards.

By his admission on Tuesday, Tiger Woods was not ready to play in the 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot. Tiger played a practice round on Tuesday morning with Justin Thomas and John Augenstein, the Vanderbilt star who was the 2019 U.S. Amateur runner-up.

Gruden ribs Carr for using coach's wife's name as audible originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea Jon Gruden heard that strange audible during the Raiders' win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, and his reaction Monday was quintessentially quippy. Quarterback Derek Carr called an audible of "Cindy Gruden-Tiger Woods" during the first quarter of the Raiders' 34-30 win in Charlotte, which was loud enough to hear on Sunday's broadcast from an empty Bank of America Stadium. When Gruden was asked how his wife and the golf legend ended up in a call, the coach jokingly pleaded the fifth.
They could have tried a one-in-a-million Hail Mary or hook-and-ladder play (they opted instead to throw the ball into a wide swath of green grass), or they could have given kicker Brandon McManus an opportunity to make all-time NFL history. Yes, it would have been a 74-yard field goal, extending the record by 10 yards. But, yes, McManus has the leg.

Mike McCarthy lost his debut as coach of the Dallas Cowboys in part because of a curious fourth-down decision that didn't work. Dak Prescott's pass to rookie receiver CeeDee Lamb covered 2 yards on fourth-and-3 when a short field goal could have pulled Dallas even in the fourth quarter of a 20-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Now the Cowboys (0-1) will see whether a short-term loss can turn into a long-term gain, starting Sunday in their home opener against Atlanta (0-1).

A federal judge in California on Friday dismissed Canelo Alvarez's lawsuit against DAZN, Golden Boy Promotions and Golden Boy CEO Oscar De La Hoya on technical legal grounds, and gave Alvarez until Sept. 28 to refile the suit correctly. First, the suit alleges that De La Hoya gave the final right to approve Alvarez's opponents to both Alvarez and DAZN.

The Houston Rockets are keeping Daryl Morey as GM and remain all-in on small-ball (in part because James Harden wants it). Mike D'Antoni is gone in Houston, and he is leaving behind some serious challenges in Houston. The next coach is going to have to deal with Harden as he nears free agency (2022), getting Russell Westbrook to play within his skill set, and a roster that needs more perimeter defenders if they are going without much rim protection.
