I am still an optimist and I always am and I think we may, if we play better and have a better attitude, we can have a better game in the second leg". The quality of vision on the pitch rapidly depleted in the second half with the intrusion of a few particularly dense fog. Fans - not to mention the players, press and media - struggled to see all of the pitch. (more...)

- November 15, 2015

Liverpool now have 17 players out on loan but all of them could briefly return to Merseyside so Klopp and his staff can determine whether the club should recall them. "If we learn the right things tonight it is very important and then it will be good we lost". "I'd like him to do business in the January window because there's everything to play for". (more...)

Stanford (8-2, 7-1 PAC-12) can still win the PAC-12 North division with a win against Cal. "I've got to clean that up if we want to be a better team", he said. They don't have a few of the standouts they've had in the past, but they've got a bunch of guys that contribute and help them make plays. "Either the throw or the catch". (more...)

Thomas Muller should have scored but lost his footing at the crucial moment and Mario Gomez, teed up sublimely by Muller, blazed his shot over the bar when he should have scored. 60' CLOSE! Giroud flashes a diving header wide. The Juventus forward lets fly from 25 yards and his rising drive whistles just over the bar. The 29-year-old simply tapped a left-footed shot to put France on the scoreboard. (more...)

Alabama dominates Mississippi State in 31-6 victory Alabama dominates Mississippi State in 31-6 victory
- November 15, 2015

Few, if any, are predicting the Bulldogs to win, despite the game being played in Davis Wade Stadium. After both squads failed to score in the first quarter, Cyrus Jones opened up the scoring with a 69-yard punt return. In Saturday's game, he had three receptions for 38 yards. One of just a handful of SEC players to ever top 100 touchdowns for his career, Prescott has nothing to hang his head about in going 0-for-4 vs. (more...)
Seahawks' goal: Stop Cardinals from running away with division Seahawks' goal: Stop Cardinals from running away with division
- November 15, 2015

Head2Head: Can Giants slow down Tom Brady and Patriots offensive juggernaut? Head2Head: Can Giants slow down Tom Brady and Patriots offensive juggernaut?
- November 15, 2015

Perhaps heading into Sunday's game being huge underdogs in their own building will be enough to push the Giants to victory, but they're also going to need to play their "A" game if they're going to have any chance. Questionable: CB Justin Coleman (hand), WR Keshawn Martin (hamstring), OL Shaq Mason (knee), DE Jabaal Sheard (ankle). Tight ends have hurt the Giants and Rob Gronkowski is a matchup nightmare.

- November 15, 2015

My one big concern about this game was the fact it was being playing in Champaign in November. The Fighting Illini stadium known as Memorial Stadium has another nick name. Michael Thomas continued to have a huge impact on the passing game, finishing with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown. "I don't think there's a chance of a letdown". (more...)
FSU Florida State Seminoles v FSU Florida State Seminoles v
- November 15, 2015

I could see a scenario in which the Wolfpack gets off to a quick start with the Seminoles a bit sluggish coming off the loss at Clemson, and Golson making a few mistakes if he's forced to press and take some chances. "In short-yardage situations, you want to get in and grind it out", Eberle said. Unfortunately, he sustained a concussion back on October 24 against Georgia Tech that sidelined him. (more...)
Jimmie Johnson spoils qualifying for Chase drivers by winning pole at Phoenix Jimmie Johnson spoils qualifying for Chase drivers by winning pole at Phoenix
- November 15, 2015

He's going to have to race smart and doesn't have to win to advance to the Championship 4, but he's the type of driver who will take advantage of a great vehicle, and he should have a stellar auto for this one. That last run wasn't our best, just got too tight there. There are mathematical possibilities that both drivers can make the final four, but it's a longshot. (more...)

- November 14, 2015

Waller struck 68 runs off 31 balls as Zimbabwe recovered from a disastrous start to get to a decent score. Cremer then finished with 3-29, including two wickets in one over, but it was not enough for the visitors to end their dismal run in the tour. (more...)

- November 14, 2015

It culminated with an intense staredown after a media session on Friday afternoon at the stadium. However, Jedrzejczyk is convinced she will run over Letourneau who replaced an injured Claudia Gadelha. "I would like to fight as fast as possible. I am Joanna Champion".

- November 14, 2015

He had a stellar year for Huddersfield and is likely to come into the team for the Sydney Roosters-bound Joe Burgess. "There are a couple of new faces in there who can add something different to our team this week", he said. "Even at the end, when we were backs against the wall, we still defended reasonably well". It was very tight, very nip and tuck. "But sometimes you need to use your commonsense and Jerry has earned the right to play - now it is up to him". (more...)
Bills Win in Rex's Return to New York Bills Win in Rex's Return to New York
- November 14, 2015

The Buffalo Bills the NY Jets , but the meme makers were more focused on the weird green and red combinations worn by the two teams, which meant all the colorblind people couldn't really figure out who is playing who. The win places the Bills alone in second place in the AFC East, as Ryan and company are now 3-1 against intradivisional foes in 2015, while the NY Jets dropped to 1-2 on the year in that category.

Matt Wieters Accepts Qualifying Offer Matt Wieters Accepts Qualifying Offer
- November 14, 2015

Wieters, 29, is just the second player to ever accept a qualifying offer, which compensates a team with a draft pick if a a free agent decides to sign elsewhere. They still can re-sign with Los Angeles. With the Dodgers, Anderson went 10-9 with a 3.69 ERA over 31 starts. Over Anderson's seven-year career, he is 37-41 with a 3.72 ERA over 674.1 innings pitched. (more...)

Bruins' Brad Marchand nails Avalanche's Gabriel Landeskog with a stiff punch Bruins' Brad Marchand nails Avalanche's Gabriel Landeskog with a stiff punch
- November 14, 2015

The Colorado Avalanche are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 18.8 percent of their power plays. Marchand went right up to Landeskog and threw a stiff right to the face that he was really not at all ready for. His defensive game is really troubling and his negative possession numbers point a rough $6 million cap hit over the next three years. BOSTON (AP) - Matt Duchene broke a tie in the third period with his sixth goal in five games and the Colorado Avalanche beat the ... (more...)

- November 14, 2015

Bryant tweeted again: "If you going to tell something tell the whole thing...i'm done with the situation..." The MMQB's Robert Klemko first noted Bryant's outburst. The charge was uncorroborated by media members standing near the confrontation. "Since y'all not going to say nothing". That one was caught on video , via Edward Egros of FOX 4, that was meant to feature tight end Jason Witten's time with reporters, who stepped away to get between Bryant and reporters. (more...)

- November 14, 2015

Players who decline the qualifying offer cost their new team a first-round draft pick, or if top-10 protected their next-highest pick, which can limit a player's market. Players and owners will re-examine free agent compensation during negotiations that start early next year for a collective bargaining agreement to replace the current deal, which expires on December 1, 2016.

Chelsea won't sack Mourinho, says Ancelotti Chelsea won't sack Mourinho, says Ancelotti
- November 13, 2015

Had I not won La Decima I would have been sacked a year earlier but I knew this when I took the job. Chelsea are now parked at the 16th spot on the EPL table with 11 points - three above the relegation zone. "I feel good in myself, but when the results aren't coming everything is negative and everything looks bad". With that in mind, we've devised a list of five players who should be on Jose Mourinho's wishlist for the New Year . (more...)
