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.
Khalil Mack delivered two shots for the price of one in the third quarter of the Chicago Bears' game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Soldier Field. First, the All-World LB took down Tom Brady for a sack after cleanly beating TB rookie — and first-round pick — Tristan Wirfs. Then, Mack made sure the rookie understood who he was messing with, going classic WWE hip-toss on the 320-pounder from Iowa.
One teammate additionally called Haskins out, according to the source, saying then-third-string quarterback Alex Smith would arrive to the team facility earlier than Haskins and prepare better for games, even though Smith knew he was going to be inactive come game day. Head coach Ron Rivera announced on Wednesday that not only would Haskins move to the bench, but he was demoted to third-string. Third-year pro Kyle Allen will be the starter, with Smith serving as the primary backup.

During my time with the Washington Wizards, we were matched three straight years against a Cleveland Cavaliers team led by the young LeBron. For the entirety of that series, my teammate Gilbert Arenas had been heckling – and dominating – Damon Jones to the point where the Cavaliers guard's performance dipped and he was benched.
Matt Fitzpatrick produced an inspired short-game performance to top the halfway leaderboard here at the BMW PGA Championship, before taking aim at the long-game revolution instigated by Bryson DeChambeau. It is fair to say that the amicable young Englishman did not hold back when asked about DeChambeau's 360-plus yard drives that have become the central talking point in the sport. At the US Open three weeks' ago, the American overpowered Winged Foot to cruise to his first major and at this week's PGA Tour event in Las Vegas - the Shiners Open - he has all but bust the house again with a 59 in the pro-am and a 62 in the first round.

Foles admits that he was watching and waiting for Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady to meet Foles on the field. I didn't realize the camera was on me,” Foles told Dan Patrick on Friday.

British Open Champion Shane Lowry and England's Matthew Fitzpatrick shared the lead at the halfway stage of the PGA Championship after they scored matching 65s at Wentworth on Friday. Overnight co-leader Tyrrell Hatton was able to get within one shot of the leading pair as the weather changed in the afternoon but they remained the men to catch heading into the weekend. Lowry notched seven birdies in a spotless second round, while Fitzpatrick had been on course to break the tournament record for the lowest opening 36 holes after an eagle and seven birdies before a double bogey on his final hole.
A big question surrounding Jeff Van Gundy for years: Does he actually want to coach again? He won with the Knicks and won with the Rockets. So, he gets linked to other NBA jobs fairly often.
In case you missed it, Chicago Bears outside linebacker Khalil Mack had one of the highlight moments of 2020 and it had nothing to do with his two sacks of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady in the Bears' 20-19 win Thursday night. Instead, it came after one of those sacks, when Mack hip-tossed Buccaneers offensive tackle, Tristan Wirfs. Mack flung Wirfs like a bag of feathers.

On a cold afternoon last December, a furious Brandon McManus ripped his helmet off and flung it to the ground after Vic Fangio summoned him back to the sideline just as he was about to attempt a record 65-yard field goal. When he came back from halftime, McManus lined up at the exact spot and sent the practice kick sailing through the uprights in the north end zone, a not-so-subtle dig at Fangio for denying him a chance to best Matt Prater's record 64-yarder, which came on the same field six years earlier. ''Does a Hail Mary change the way a quarterback throws the ball?'' retorted McManus after his 53-yarder as time expired gave Denver a 23-20 win over the Chargers that day.
