This family is showing up for Jill Stein all the way from Nebraska.
When the New England Patriots have a win in hand, Bill Belichick apparently starts focusing on other things, like throwing off future opponents. Tony Romo, who has impressed in his debut as a color analyst for CBS, explained on Sunday that during the Patriots' Week 2 win over the New Orleans Saints, Belichick made a call that likely served no other purpose than to make scouting tougher for future opponents. In the fourth quarter, the Patriots had a seemingly insurmountable 23-point lead with five minutes to go as the Saints closed in on a score with the ball on the four-year line. As the Saints came to the line, the Patriots crowded the line five defenders and indicated that they were going to
Division III Texas Lutheran kicker Tyler Hopkins made a chip shot field goal in perhaps the most extraordinary way possible on Saturday. Hopkins’ short field goal try was blocked by a Belhaven University player. After looking at the rule book Saturday night, we thought the kick was a legal field goal because Hopkins kicked it off a bounce.
I was casually scrolling through my fantasy free agent wires on Monday morning when I noticed something curious: That's right: Kansas City Chiefs running back Akeem Hunt was added by more than a few owners last week after he was added to the roster. I came to two conclusions immediately: Either some really deep leagues are investing in Hunt because he'd benefit from a terrific Chiefs running attack if injuries happened … or that people were confusing him with breakout star Kareem Hunt. So I went to Twitter and lo and behold, I might be right: So here's your PSA: If someone offers you a trade for a Hunt on the Chiefs, or you see one on the waiver wires, please check twice before acquiring him.
Well, this is a bit awkward. Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian has led Denver to a 2-0 record and he currently leads the NFL with six touchdown passes. But what about the other quarterbacks that general manager John Elway has drafted? In 2012, Elway spent a second-round draft pick to select 6-7, 235-pound Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler. Broncos fans know how that turned out — after filling in for an injured Manning in 2015, Osweiler left in free agency the following offseason to sign with the Texans. Osweiler looked like a colossal bust in Houston, turning the ball over 17 times and posting a 72.2 passer rating in 15 games before ultimately being traded to the Browns. After being released
You read that right, the current UFC women’s featherweight champion that has decimated all opposition over the past decade and was once the opponent that fight fans wanted to see Rousey face is exactly who Tarverdyan believes the former champion should square off against.
Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is questionable for Monday night’s game against the Lions. Many fantasy football players don’t want to wait until Monday night to find out if Beckham is playing, because they need to set their lineups on Sunday. And
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has broken another Steam record, and this time it might stick. The battle royale shooter just surpassed Valve's Dota 2 to claim the all-time record for peak player count, with 1.34 million gamers fighting for survival versus a little less than 1.3 million for its rival.
The final PGA Tour event of the 2016-17 season is here, and there is a lot of money on the line. Thirty players will play the Tour Championship this weekend at East Lake, and just under $34 million is at stake between the Tour Championship purse and FedEx Cup bonus money. Jordan Spieth is the favorite to win this week (it would be his second in three years), but he'll have loads of competition. One of the quirky nuances to the Tour Championship is that the FedEx Cup points players have been earning since last fall get reset this week. The reason for this is to create a little bit of drama in case one or two players are way out in front. The PGA Tour wants everyone to have a mathematical chance
Each time Seth Jones felt like the Columbus Blue Jackets were dominating, the Pittsburgh Penguins went down the ice and scored. T.J. Oshie knows the feeling because the Penguins did it to the Washington Capitals often during playoff series the past two years. Opportunistic, well-coached and talented, Pittsburgh has won eight consecutive playoff series to become the NHL’s only back-to-back Stanley Cup champion of the salary-cap era and the first since the Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and 1998.
The NFL is better with Marshawn Lynch in it. After a year-long siesta, Lynch returned to the NFL this year in the silver and black of his hometown Oakland Raiders, and he’s clearly thrilled to be here. Prior to Sunday’s game he gave away free Skittles
Bill Simmons knows all about crossing the bosses at ESPN. During a Friday mailbag on The Ringer, Simmons was asked whether it bothered him that, while he was suspended by ESPN president John Skipper for calling NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a "liar," Hill escaped with a slap on the wrist for describing Trump and his supporters as racists. Simmons said he wasn't bothered.
Before they fought over a penalty, Neymar and Edinson Cavani began their petty feud over a free kick. Neymar’s first month as a Paris Saint-Germain player has gone about as well as everyone involved could have hoped. PSG has not lost or drawn a game since his arrival, and sits atop Ligue 1 with a perfect record.
SEPTEMBER 16: James Franklin and the Penn State Nittany Lions prepare to take the field against the Georgia State Panthers at Beaver Stadium on September 16, 2017 in State College, Pennsylvania. Penn State coach James Franklin understandably caught some flak for a decision he made late in PSU’s blowout win over Georgia State on Saturday. With Penn State up 56-0 with just 11 seconds left in regulation, Georgia State brought out its field goal unit on fourth down.
Almost a year after Farmers Insurance announced it would cease sponsoring Kasey Kahne following the 2017 season, a report by ESPN reveals that Farmers Insurance paid Hendrick Motorsports roughly $666,000 a race to sponsor the No. 5 Chevrolet in 2017. ESPN’s report is based on documents in a lawsuit filed by Sports Marketing Consultants related to “a dispute on the percentage of commissions owed on the deal” between Farmers Insurance and Hendrick Motorsports. Farmers Insurance, which has sponsored Kahne for six seasons, was the primary sponsor on the No. 5 car in 12 races from 2015-17.
Sam Bradford didn’t start at quarterback for the Vikings on Sunday and the offense was toothless in a 26-9 loss to the Steelers. As you’d imagine, that made the condition of Bradford’s knee and the date when he might return to action popular topics for Zimmer after the game. Zimmer said that Bradford doesn’t require surgery, but didn’t say anything else about the knee issues that led to an MRI and a seat on the bench this week.
Kobe Bryant Daughter Doin' Hoop Work ... Introducing 'Mambacita' 1 9/18/2017 7:17 AM PDT Hey WNBA (hell, maybe NBA), Kobe Bryant's daughter is coming to dominate you all ... here's video of the making of a new Mamba -- and it seems like the snake doesn't slither far from the father. Kobe posted video of his 11-year-old daughter, Gianna, getting some work in ... and that work was learning some signature Bryant moves -- the same moves that dominated the NBA for 20 years. Bryant explained the workout in one of his captions, saying they were both inspired to get up and sweat by the upcoming WNBA Finals rematch ... and debuted a new nickname for her -- "Mambacita." Yeah, it's on.
For the third time this year, a baseball player has died after a car accident in the Dominican Republic. Miguel Gonzalez, a 21-year-old minor leaguer in the Baltimore Orioles’ organization, died Monday from injuries sustained Saturday night in an auto accident. Earlier this year, Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura and former big leaguer Andy Marte died on the same day in unrelated accidents in the Dominican Republic.
Washington safety Su’a Cravens, a second-round pick just a year ago, may not have officially retired yet, but he won’t be playing in 2017. On Monday, Washington officially placed Cravens on the reserve/left squad list, which by rule means he cannot play this year. Washington S Su’a Cravens won’t be playing this season after the team surprisingly placed him on the reserve/left squad list.
NEW ORLEANS -- After giving up 42 points in the season opener, Bill Belichick gave the Patriots multiple days off. When they returned, they were given a simplified approach on defense designed to ease the mental burden on the players and allow them to play more free. “We just played fast and physical,” said safety Duron Harmon. “That was one of the main things: simplifying the game plan a little bit. We were getting lined up and playing. Just doing that got our confidence going early.” PATRIOTS 36, SAINTS 20 Tom E. Curran's Best and Worst Phil Perry's five quick thoughts: Pats get back in stride Game notes: Brady, Gronk set records Part of that simplification involved the defensive backs. Instead
The fight could take Bisping's career to new heights, but it might also be the final time he sets foot in the Octagon. Recounting the magnitude of the event and his opponent, Bisping, 38, sees the fight with St-Pierre as a potentially glorious exit. Everybody knows who Georges St-Pierre is.
Lewis Hamilton says he has no plans to change his approach in his bid for a fourth Formula 1 world title despite seeing his points lead over Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel increase in Singapore on Sunday. Vettel retired on the first lap after getting caught up in a crash with Kimi Raikkonen and Max Verstappen, while Hamilton was able to dodge the chaos and score his seventh win of the season. With Vettel failing to score, Hamilton saw his lead swell to 28 points, putting him more than one race win clear of his Ferrari rival in the standings with six races to go.
It’s so hard not to root for Rickie Fowler. The guy plays with a certain swagger, and he harnesses a kind of aggression on the golf course that makes him a joy to behold. Case and point: On Sunday, coming into the 585 yard par-5 18th hole at this week’s BMW Championship with an outside chance of catching eventual winner, Marc Leishman, who sat four shots ahead, Fowler did the unthinkable. Rather than hit a safe shot and settling for a tidy paycheck, he pulled a driver off the deck and took dead aim at the pin from 279 yards. It almost worked, too. He hit it well — so well, in fact, that the ball flew over the green. He made a par to finish T-2, putting him in prime position ahead of the season-ending
The New York Giants find themselves in an early hole this season after losses to the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions to open the season. Monday night’s loss to the Lions was a particularly sloppy showing. The Giants can’t run the ball effectively.
Paris Saint-Germain picked up its sixth consecutive win to start the Ligue 1 season on Sunday, but something else happened during the team’s 2-0 victory over Lyon that should be a show for concern. [ MORE: Bayern keeper Neuer injuries foot, could miss
