Tony Romo makes official return to Cowboys practice

After a rollicking start to the season, Wentz completed only 54 percent of his passes in the last two Eagles games. "I think that's big in that he's just trying to be healthy and be the best teammate he can be during the time being", center Travis Frederick said. Read More »

Denver Broncos coordinator Wade Phillips carted off field


This year, Gordon has become the feature back for the Chargers, and he is quietly putting together a nice season. He lost control and smashed into Phillips, who took a hard fall to the ground. But the mood among the defensive players was different, cornerback Chris Harris said. "From what I'm seeing today, he's himself today, and the fact that he's battling with me today when I'm trying to get him to go home and get some rest makes me know he's back to his old self".

UT Upsets Baylor with 35-34 Home Win

I can't just sit down and worry about this loss. "But these young kids, it bothers them". Even though the program has struggled this season, Strong was defiant in the face of criticism. "I don't think our kids played necessarily bad, we just came up short". The Longhorns answered with a picture-perfect 40-yard bomb for a touchdown from Buechele to Armanti Foreman to culminate an eight-play, 88-yard march to tie the game at 7-7 at the 11:19 mark of the first quarter.

Detroit's late-game magic runs out in 20-13 loss to Houston

Matthew Stafford spun fourth-quarter magic for nearly all of October, leading comeback win over comeback win and pushing the Detroit Lions from the brink of a failed season to relevance. The ailing New Orleans defense helps make this play a little more palatable though. This offseason, the Houston Texans thought they'd solved a quarterback crisis so dire it made their fans pine for the days of watching Matt Schaub hoist wobbly jump balls to Andre Johnson.

No Jaguars staff changes, says Gus Bradley

The Florida Times-Union reports that Khan said after the game Bradley will not be fired, though the paper does not report the exact words he used, which is a bummer; parsing the dreaded vote of confidence and looking for an out is a time-honored tradition. Read More »

Ander Herrera proud of Manchester United's battling qualities in Liverpool draw

Mourinho, whose United remain three points behind Liverpool and five adrift of Manchester City and Arsenal in seventh, added: "We stopped them to play, but they also did very well by the defensive point of view". "I am pretty sure the last thing Jose Mourinho wants to do is to make a compliment to my team". "I like to think I can play every game, but obviously it's the manager's decision and I respect that".

Boss Koeman calls on 'personalities' to drag Everton out of slump


The best chance of the half saw Adrian come to the fore, the goalkeeper stretching brilliantly to keep out Barkley's close-range effort after the Everton playmaker had gathered Bryan Oviedo's cutback and shimmied past Winston Reid. "It was one of his best [performances] of this season", said Koeman. A lovely West Ham move, sees Payet play in Obiang on the edge of the box, but he spoons his shot over the bar. Read More »

Manchester United v Burnley preview


TOM Heaton admitted his heroics to earn Burnley a point at Old Trafford were all the sweeter for coming at the home of his former club. "Moscow was a big moment, having not played a minute, I trained every day and travelled to every game that season, but didn't play a minute", he said . Read More »

Ricciardo qualifies fourth at Mexican GP

The German now sits 26 points ahead of Hamilton in the standings heading into the final three races, and could edge closer to his maiden crown even if he finishes second to Hamilton in Mexico. Hamilton said he's much more comfortable on the surface and racing in Mexico City's high altitude this year. "Today it feels a lot more like a racetrack". Read More »

Bill O'Brien Comments on Brock Osweiler's Performance vs. Broncos


On Monday night, Osweiler was 22-for-41 for 131 yards without a touchdown. "He came out here and struggled", said Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib, who also conceded he gave Osweiler a post-game hug. The Broncos responded with a great Emmanuel Sanders catch at the Houston 2 followed by a Devontae Booker 1 yard rushing TD. "I feel bad, just a tough injury, but I know he's going to work hard to come back", O'Brien said. Read More »

Pep Guardiola's response to critics of his playing style is so ideal

The Manchester City boss also pointed to his trophy haul when asked once again if he will move away from his possession-based, attacking style, but said if things are not going well in his second season he will "go home". For Guardiola, however, Aguero's future is not even an issue, unless the player chooses to make it one. "Of course Sergio could have played in Barcelona - he played there with [previous boss] Manuel Pellegrini many times, all the times there, but in that moment this ... Read More »

Time to lower bar for Manchester United

Bailly joined United from Villareal this summer and had played every minute of the team's league campaign before then. Chelsea are starting to look more like the force they had been before a rift between Mourinho and senior players saw the London club suffer a dramatic dip in form last term. Read More »

WWE Raw: Brock Lesnar returns to send Goldberg a reply


The in-ring work was subpar, and the atmosphere was poor since the fans in attendance knew that both Superstars meant to leave WWE following the match. The segment was awkward for a few reasons, with the biggest one being that towards the end of the segment, Heyman had to pretend that the live crowd was chanting for Goldberg, when instead they were chanting "GOLDBERG SUCKS!" You may have also noticed that the segment was disjointed and, frankly, lousy, as Heyman tried everything in his ... Read More »

Cubs could get Schwarber back if they reach World Series


Schwarber, 23, tore two ligaments in his left knee in his second game of the season April 7 against Arizona. Before committing to anything concerning Schwarber, the Cubs first want to see him take some at-bats. He hit five post-season home runs to set the all-time franchise record. Of course, the Cubs still have to win one more NLCS game to reach the World Series, but this is pretty interesting timing. Read More »

Jets Turn To Geno Smith To Start At Quarterback Vs. Ravens

Black Sticks star Gemma Flynn made an ambassador for breast cancer cause

Chris Dawson was blindsided 2 months ago when she was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer . Long Beach resident Maryann Conradis, a 20-year survivor of breast cancer , said attending the walk is an emotional experience every year. Caruso said, "I was like, "Oh my God, I have cancer". "So, we do it every year, just to get some exercise and make it a family thing". Increased physical activity and healthy diet to maintain a healthy weight may help in subsiding the incidence of breast cancer ... Read More »

Moses scores in Chelsea's rout of Leicester

Moses finished a brilliant one-two 10 minutes from time to leave Leicester as the first English top-flight champions since Blackburn Rovers 21 years ago to lose their opening four away games of the season.

But with just eight points from their first eight Premier League games this season the Foxes' title defence, following last season's shock win, is already looking doomed and their best chance of success this season could come in Europe. "At the moment we are working hard on a few things and it will come". Ranieri said: "My players sent the world insane last season and the whole world was behind them". Read More »

Manchester United vs Liverpool: Jose Mourinho Mocks Jurgen Klopp

Rooney has faced heavy criticism lately, yet Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is still wary of the forward cum midfielder, who scored the only goal as United won in the Premier League at Anfield in January. While they possess so many attacking threats in Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata, the Portuguese has yet to see the team thrive consistently in the final third.

Top Three Matchups to Watch: Texas Tech

Mahomes threw three TD passes against the Mountaineers previous year, but Gibson noted the Red Raiders also were forced to kick a pair of short field goals and West Virginia forced a turnover inside its 20-yard line. Even if West Virginia can mount a clock-killing, ground-heavy offensive attack, look for Texas Tech to have its chances and make the most the of them. Read More »

Blue Jays get to rest ahead of ALCS

Thus it was that Donaldson, the reigning AL MVP, strode to the plate to lead off the 10th inning and promptly stroked a one-hop double off the right-centre field fence. The Blue Jays responded with three runs in the bottom half as Edwin Encarnacion blasted a two-run home run - his first at-bat at the Rogers Centre since his memorable walk-off AL Wild Card game homer against the Orioles - and Russell Martin hit a solo homer of his own to make it a 3-1 ballgame after one.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed being evaluated for a concussion


But that's a lot to ask in such a short time frame and Reed has a history of concussions - two documented during his time at the University of Florida and three admitted in the NFL. "Due to my concussion, my eyes have lost the memory to keep track of moving objects, so I have to wear these (glasses) for the rest of my life", Cravens said in the video, adding sarcastically, "Thanks, concussions".

Clinton Ahead in North Carolina; Virtual Tie in Ohio

The polls - taken after the release of a 2005 recording of Donald Trump talking in a sexually aggressive manner about women - show Clinton leading in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. She's also leading overall in North Carolina , but her margins weren't very large there either. The results of the two new surveys differ dramatically from those of another previously released poll that was conducted during the same time. Read More »

49ers name Colin Kaepernick starting quarterback

Kaepernick, whose protest against injustice and police brutality has been defended by US President Barack Obama and since spread to other players and sports, will take over for a 49ers team that is 1-4 after losing four straight games. "He told me I was up this week". "I'm excited to be back out there". Kapernick will be out to prove that he can still be a viable starting quarterback and at least with him under center, he should be able to make more plays than Gabbert did over the first ...
