The Broncos looked like they were going to get a chance at a comeback. Down seven points to the Bills midway through the fourth, Von Miller got pressure on Tyrod Taylor and forced an incomplete pass on third down. Buffalo would have to punt. Except:
Which is the more painful way to have a win taken away: When a bad call goes against you, or when the call is correct but the rule is bad? In the end a loss is a loss, but man, leave it to the Lions to find a unique and brutal way to lose.
Raul Mondesi, who played 13 years in the big leagues, has been sentenced to eight years in prison in his native Dominican Republic for political corruption.
Most of the planets are good, very good. But some are better than others. Here are the planets of our solar system, ranked from best to worst.
NFL games are hell and I don’t know why anyone would want to attend, but it’s even worse when you’re not safe even after it’s over. From Sunday’s win over the Jets, here’s a brawl near the Coliseum BART station, which the video uploader says started as a dispute over whose Uber ride had just pulled up.
Chase Headley was, incredibly, relatively fine after being hit with a pitch in the dick. May we all be able to walk things off so quickly.
It was just one play. It was a big play, potentially a crucial one, but we’re probably not sitting here dissecting it as if one delay-of-game penalty was responsible for all the Giants’ ills if coach Ben McAdoo hadn’t (deservedly/unusually) put the blame squarely on Eli Manning.
This is just an acknowledgement that the NHL preseason started up this weekend, though it feels a little too soon for hockey to be coming back in just 16 days. Hockey, take another nap. We’ll check in with you next month.
The Broncos manhandled the Cowboys 42-17, just a thorough annihilation in every aspect of the game. But almost immediately, most of the blame for the loss—or at least the loudest of the criticism—fell upon Ezekiel Elliott, who had the worst game of his life.
Sunday saw the return of the Los Angeles Chargers, their first home game since 1960, and no one’s very excited about it.
All along it’s been clear that NHL players wouldn’t take part in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and all along, Alexander Ovechkin insisted that he’d play for Russia, no matter what the NHL said. But in a statement released by the Capitals today, Ovechkin admitted that it just won’t be possible.
With their 13-9 loss to the Texans last night, the Bengals have achieved some ignominious ineffectuality marks. They’re the first NFL team to play their first two games at home and fail to score a touchdown since 1939. This is also the first time Cincinnati has gone two straight games without finding the end zone…
I completely understand why American broadcasters generally won’t show fans who run onto the field in the middle of a game. You don’t want to reward them with attention (even though, based on nothing, I think most of them do it because they’re drunk and stupid, not because they want their friends watching at home to…
Go ahead and picture it...
It’s been a long, long time since opening day was actually opening day for everyone. In the past, there’s been a national game the night before the big slate, and usually some teams that don’t get going until the day after most everyone else’s opening day, for some reason, and sometimes even an international series in…
The season started off so optimistically for the Saints...and then the game began. Drew Brees got the team fired up with a pep talk about brotherhood and expectations and obligations. It might’ve been the last season-opening hype speech he ever gives them.
By my count, there are two interesting punters in the league, and Marquette King didn’t even have to leave the bench very much in his game. The other one, though, pulled off the most unorthodox play on any unit of Week 1.
Not much worth paying attention to in Redsland these days, with Cincinnati dead last in the NL Central despite Sunday’s 10-5 win over the Mets. The rare exception? Manager Bryan Price’s beef with umpires, and the question of whether he’d keep it up in the face of the impending rendition of “God Bless America.”
With a gaudy 1-0 record, Buffalo is all alone in first place in the AFC East. But much more importantly than that, let’s check in with Bills fans:
