Pence leaves Colts game after players kneel during anthem Pence leaves Colts game after players kneel during anthem
- October 09, 2017

US Vice President Mike Pence walked out of an NFL game in protest against players who refused to stand during the national anthem . A White House statement from Pence urged all Americans to rally around their flag. All of the Colts players appeared to stand during the anthem. It won't work. Nobody knew that Mike Pence was at a football game, and nobody cared that he left. (more...)

- October 09, 2017

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said emphatically his players will stand for the national anthem and not disrespect the flag, and if they do, then the player or players will not play. "I do, too", Jones told reporters. Shortly after the team's 35-31 loss, the 74-year-old National Football League boss said players that appear to demonstrate instead of standing during the national anthem will not play. (more...)

The right to participate in such a protest is protected by the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment. No Colts players knelt during the anthem prior to the game in Indianapolis but the 49ers had more than 20 players kneeling with their hands over their hearts for the second straight week. (more...)
JJ Watt Carried Off Field After Left Leg Injury JJ Watt Carried Off Field After Left Leg Injury
- October 09, 2017

Christian Covington will come in to play in Watt's stead. If that's the case, then his season will be cut short far too early in the year. It's a chest injury for Mercilus, according to NBC's Michelle Tafoya. Watt remained on his hands and knees for a couple of minutes while trainers checked on him. This makes it much more challenging. These two teams have both been in the mix for playoff contention the last few years. (more...)
Jason Taumalolo on why he chose Tonga Jason Taumalolo on why he chose Tonga
- October 09, 2017

It's said Taumalolo disagreed with the stance taken by the Kiwis coach to drop forwards Jessie Bromwich and Kevin Proctor from the World Cup squad after being involved in a drugs scandal following the ANZAC Test in Canberra. "You're going to have to find some way to be able to trust them again but does that cause issues and problems that we don't need". The former Dally M medal victor said he hasn't been contacted by any of his ex-kiwi teammates but has the support of Cowboys teammate and ... (more...)
Arsenal's Mustafi suffers 'muscle tear' in Germany's win over Azerbaijan Arsenal's Mustafi suffers 'muscle tear' in Germany's win over Azerbaijan
- October 09, 2017

While Bayern Munich defender Niklas Suele went off earlier as a precaution, Low said, "I think Mustafi has a muscle tear". "Overall it would be a mistake to take this qualification as the standard". Germany, who had already secured qualification for next year's finals in Russian Federation, needed an hour to hit their stride despite an early lead through the 22-year-old Goretzka, already a target for several top European clubs.

Harden fires back at McHale
- October 09, 2017

I think (the Rockets' offseason addition of star point guard) Chris Paul is going to help him just kind of get back into just being able to hoop and play and stuff like that. I'm not that type of person. Whether McHale chooses to continue the back-and-forth with Harden is another question entirely. I don't operate that way. (more...)
Rory McIlroy Confesses To Holding a Grudge Against Roy Keane Rory McIlroy Confesses To Holding a Grudge Against Roy Keane
- October 09, 2017

And all because of a childhood snub. Just ask Rory McIlroy, who's still dealing with the trauma of being dismissed by Keane many moons ago. "I went and asked for his autograph at the Portmarnock Links Hotel when he was with the Ireland squad, and he said no". (more...)
Bengals overcome turnovers to beat Bills 20-16 Bengals overcome turnovers to beat Bills 20-16
- October 09, 2017

The Bengals and Bills met in Cincinnati for a game with a better finish than most anticipated. Joe Mixon was solid for the Bengals, carrying the ball 15 times for 51 yards, including one touchdown. However, a holding penalty moved Buffalo out of field-goal range, and the Bengals forced a punt. In Week 5, it found ways to hit big plays against a Bill defense that has been hard to move the ball on. (more...)
Nationals Go Wild in the 8th Inning of Game 2 Nationals Go Wild in the 8th Inning of Game 2
- October 09, 2017

He spoke of needing to have fun. "The more at-bats I get", Harper said before Game 2, "the more comfortable I get". It's about catching the ball, which Washington didn't do well all season (minus-37 runs saved, worst among playoff teams), and which Rendon didn't do when he needed to. (more...)
Costa Rica punched their ticket to Russian Federation Costa Rica punched their ticket to Russian Federation
- October 09, 2017

The match had been postponed by 24 hours after heavy rainfall, and a 66th minute goal from Eddie Hernandez for Honduras may have also delayed Costa Rican celebrations. Costa Rica's Kendall Waston (C) heads to score against Honduras during their 2018 World Cup qualifier football match, in San Jose on October 7, 2017. (more...)

- October 09, 2017

Meanwhile, wide receiver Tyrell Williams, listed as questionable for Sunday's game because of a neck injury, will play against the Giants. But the Chargers' biggest flaw is their inability to defend the run, an area the Giants haven't been able to exploit this season. (more...)

Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. carted off field with leg injury Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. carted off field with leg injury
- October 09, 2017

Now the Giants will likely have to try to bounce back from 0-5 without Beckham to help. It was the same ankle that he had injured in training camp and forced him to miss Week 1. It isn't looking good for Beckham, surgery on an ankle at this point in the season usually means the season is over. The second-year wide receiver came into Sunday leading the Giants with 21 catches for 254 yards and a touchdown. (more...)
Panthers hold off Lions 27-24 at Ford Field

Sunday's contest began with quarterback Matthew Stafford driving Detroit steadily downfield to a 30-yard Matt Prater field goal for a 3-0 advantage with 11:32 remaining in the opener. After a strong game against the Patriots, Newton has followed it up with 15 of 17 receptions for 237 yards and two touchdowns. After an bad start to the season, this is what the Panthers had been hoping to see from Newton. (more...)
Chile 0-4 England Chile 0-4 England
- October 08, 2017

Manchester United's Angel Gomes scored a fantastic free-kick on global duty for England's under-17s as he came off the bench in a 4-0 victory against Chile. I think the biggest plus tonight is sometimes we forget the age of the players and for an occasion like this the way they handled it and got the result, great credit to them. (more...)

- October 08, 2017

Njoku, who got loose after getting pretty physical with his would-be defender, reached out with one hand and hauled in the score. The Jets were leading 3-0 when the change was made. Hogan's 21-yard touchdown pass would not have been possible, however, without an incredible diving effort by rookie tight end David Njoku . It's not great that Kizer hasn't had a good showing to start the season, but there's still clearly issues on the Browns offense. (more...)
'Water is wet, fire burns and I'm gonna beat Michael Bisping'

Nick Diaz, Carlos Condit and Johny Hendricks. Throughout the long and drawn out build up to the fight, St. Pierre and Bisping have often gone back-and-forth trading barbs and that continued at this most recent press conference . And asked whether he accepted his opponent was one of the best in the company's history, St-Pierre responded: 'Yes, he is. "But he's got a loss November 4th, this I can guarantee you", St-Pierre said. (more...)
