Wall will miss Wizards' game at Bulls Wall will miss Wizards' game at Bulls
- November 14, 2016

Kyrie Irving led the Cavaliers in scoring with 29 points and Kevin Love added 24 to continue his torrid start to the season. The Chicago Bulls have won five of their last six home games. Starting for the Wizards were Markieff Morris, Otto Porter, Jr., Marcin Gortat, Sheldon McClellan and Tomas Satoransky. New-Look Bulls Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol have moved on from Chicago, but the Bulls didn't lose much in terms of star power. (more...)
49ers' running back Carlos Hyde expected to play Sunday 49ers' running back Carlos Hyde expected to play Sunday
- November 14, 2016

Kaepernick has 728 yards passing, four touchdowns, and two interceptions in his three games as a starter this season and is coming off a 398-yard passing performance against the New Orleans Saints. There aren't many who believe the 49ers will win, but if Kaepernick can get loose, they might be able to make a game of it. San Francisco's offensive statistics were already hardly the most impressive. (more...)
Heat expect to be without injured Goran Dragic against Jazz Heat expect to be without injured Goran Dragic against Jazz
- November 14, 2016

By then the Jazz were comfortably ahead with a 15-0 run and soon built an nearly insurmountable lead that would have required the Heat to play near flawless basketball with zero margin for error to get back into the game; too much to ask for with a squad in dire need of a go-to scorer like Gordon Hayward, who dominated the second half with his silky moves and finished with 25 points, nine rebounds and four assists.

Cook, Haseeb ready for England - if series starts in India
- November 14, 2016

He was given his first professional contract in 2015 and made his Championship debut in August that year. More pertinently, England did not trust Hameed to open the innings with Cook in Bangladesh. After a clean sweep versus New Zealand, India plan and get ready for more stimulating cricket against England . Duckett was also undone by Ashwin's guile as he edged one to the slips and Rahane made no mistake this time round. (more...)

- November 14, 2016

Fitzpatrick, listed as questionable with a minor knee sprain, was injured last Sunday in a loss to the Miami Dolphins. "I want to win for them and I want to win for the team". This team has an abundance of problems, but none of them are No. 14. He targeted Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph regularly, with Diggs accounting for 102 of Bradford's 202 first half yards. (more...)
Hamilton on pole in Brazil Hamilton on pole in Brazil
- November 13, 2016

The Ferraris of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen were seventh and eighth respectively, seven tenths off the pace with Nico Hulkenberg one second adrift of Hamilton in ninth. The hilly Sao Paulo circuit has a history of upsets, particularly when it rains. Hamilton, as he proved so often, is without peer in this crop of drivers when it comes to the wet. (more...)
Syracuse QB Eric Dungey still being tested
- November 13, 2016

Four times the Pack had third-down plays and four times Finley made the right throws to the right receivers for first downs - Bra'Lon Cherry for 9 yards, Harmon for 11, Nyheim Hines for 11 and then Jaylen Samuels for 18 on third-and-12 at the Syracuse 42. (more...)
Ron Dennis fighting McLaren move - Bernie Ecclestone Ron Dennis fighting McLaren move - Bernie Ecclestone
- November 13, 2016

Hamilton, 19 points behind Rosberg with two races remaining, was fastest in both sessions at a hot and sunny Interlagos with his best lap of one minute 11.895 seconds set on soft compound tyres in the morning. McLaren would not comment on the report when approached by Reuters and the other shareholders could not be reached for reaction. Dennis, who has been involved with former champions McLaren since 1980 and is one of F1's biggest names, stood down as team principal in 2009 but returned as ... (more...)

Argentina national team faced another embarrassing defeat yesterday night as Bauza's lads were trashed 3-0 by Brazil in a key World Cup qualifier tie. "After Brazil's first goal , we went to the floor psychologically", said midfielder Lucas Biglia. We still depend on ourselves but we can not give away points, especially at home. (more...)
Five talking points ahead of England v South Africa Five talking points ahead of England v South Africa
- November 13, 2016

Jones said taking the Springboks on at their own power game was the way to ensure another defeat against a side who, in the Australian's typically vivid phrase, treat rugby union as a sport of "chess with steroids". Daly was among the Aviva Premiership's most risky players last season with his acceleration and eye for an outside break terrorising defences to Wasps' benefit. (more...)
Specter of politics hangs over US-Mexico match
- November 13, 2016

The U.S. will counter with a roster featuring 15 World Cup veterans and 20 players who have experience in World Cup qualifying , among them captain Michael Bradley (124 global appearances) and goalkeeper Tim Howard. But the US hung tough and saw Bobby Wood equalize in the second half, only to then see Mexico legend Rafa Marquez head home the victor on 89 minutes. (more...)
Wales won't wear poppies following Federation Internationale de Football Association consultation Wales won't wear poppies following Federation Internationale de Football Association consultation
- November 13, 2016

Wales' remarkable run to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 have increased the expectations on the Red Dragons, but only one team is guaranteed to qualify for Russian Federation in two years time from what looks a competitive group. Ledley laughed: 'He might struggle to get down the front but he'd still be bigger than Joey Allen!' It was all down to Robson-Kanu hassling Matija Nastasic and forcing an error wide on the right.

Cowboys' Romo full go at practice, and running scout team
- November 13, 2016

Romo was a full participant in practice all week, the first time he's done that since sustaining a compression fracture in his lower back in August. Every day there seems to be a story about how Romo is on the verge of coming back, but that may be more about the media and reporters trying to stir some s*** up with the team that's always more interesting than everyone else.

Rosberg fastest in Brazil final practice ahead of qualifying Rosberg fastest in Brazil final practice ahead of qualifying
- November 13, 2016

Find out how to follow all the action this weekend. Posting a fastest lap time of 1:10.736, the Brit secured his pole position 0.102s ahead of Rosberg, who will start the Brazilian Grand Prix P2. "Whatever comes, comes", he said. The session started wet, but by the end of the hour the conditions were dry and all drivers were using soft tyres. (more...)
Five turnovers prevent IN from major upset of No. 10 Penn State Five turnovers prevent IN from major upset of No. 10 Penn State
- November 13, 2016

After Indiana regained the lead on Richard Lagow's 40-yard touchdown pass to Nick Westbrook, Barkley ran over a defender for a 2-yard score with 3:58 left. The Hoosiers got one first down at their own 27, but Lagow fumbled after being sacked by linebacker Brandon Bell, and defensive end Torrance Brown scooped up the ball and ran 9 yards for the final touchdown.

Former Husker Gregory faces year-long suspension from NFL Former Husker Gregory faces year-long suspension from NFL
- November 13, 2016

While Dallas is tied for the NFL's best record at 7-1, potentially losing Gregory for the rest of the year and much of 2017 would eliminate the possibility of a pass-rush boost. Randy Gregory just can't quit. The Cowboys had hoped to get Gregory back at the end of this season. Then NFL's policy on player use of substances banned requires that a player serve, four-game and season-long suspension, if they were to have another failed test. (more...)
Blue Jays sign Kendrys Morales to 3-year, $33 million deal Blue Jays sign Kendrys Morales to 3-year, $33 million deal
- November 13, 2016

Morales's 2016 season was a step back, although he finished the year with a sizzling September in which he hit.321/.370/.587 with eight homers and 30 RBIs. That is not to say that we should expect a spending spree, but it is some positivity for you. As Rosenthal points out, it is still conceivable that the team could re-sign Encarnacion to play first base everyday, but the signing appears to lower the odds. (more...)
Phillies get Howie Kendrick from Dodgers
- November 12, 2016

Kendrick, at least, can remove some lineup pressure from young hitters like Maikel Franco and Tommy Joseph . Veteran players in need of a bounce-back year are ideal for what the rebuilding Phillies are trying to do. Kendrick is still due $10 million but could be sent to a team seeking second base depth. He also received negative defensive marks at second base for the second straight season, although his work there came in a limited sample of just 210 innings. (more...)

The 13-2 fighter made the announcement on Twitter Friday, apologizing to his opponent and vowing not to miss weight again. If Cerrone is out of the picture for UFC 205, there will be even more pressure on Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez to deliver in the main event for the UFC Lightweight Championship. (more...)
Rams' dominant defense focuses on creating more turnovers Rams' dominant defense focuses on creating more turnovers
- November 12, 2016

They've also proved they can beat anyone, with wins over the Seahawks and Cardinals - two teams that handled the Jets without much trouble. 14th regular-season meeting, Rams lead series 9-4. I understand it. But, it's not just Fitz's fault. I knew it before I went in and played against the Dallas Cowboys in my first game. What I'm suggesting is, if the situation were reversed, the state would have no issues whatsoever with any of us wearing a cap featuring the NFL's beloved shield. (more...)

Herath , standing in as captain for the injury-hit Sri Lankan side, finished with 13 wickets in the match as he fully exploited a turning surface to dominate the test with his spin. Left with 136 overs to bat in order to save the match, Zimbabwe saw Chari bowled by Herath in the eighth over of their innings, before the left-arm spinner trapped Masakadza lbw in his next over.

Sherman, who was offside on the play, dove and hit Carpenter across the knees while reaching back with his hand to block the football. Officials were standing over the ball on the second attempt with 4 seconds remaining on the play clock, which led to the delay of game. (more...)
