Yes, Cooper Rush is the Dallas Cowboys' backup QB Yes, Cooper Rush is the Dallas Cowboys' backup QB
- September 03, 2017

When the 2016 National Football League season started, #Kellen Moore was supposed to be the backup quarterback to Tony Romo while rookie Dak Prescott was just looking to attract some notice. Rush completed 32 of his last 36 passes in the preseason. The only question remaining was if Moore would join him. Cooper Rush had a great preseason for the Dallas Cowboys . (more...)

Before the game headed to extras, Toronto had a golden opportunity to take the lead as Kevin Pillar was thrown out at home while trying to score off Darwin Barney's one-out ground ball to second baseman Schoop. Jones hit his 26th home run in the first inning with a man on, and Tim Beckham hit an RBI single in the second for a 3-0 lead. Two innings later, Morales' RBI single drove in Ryan Goins . (more...)

Seven different Clemson Tigers players scored a touchdown on offense in the game. While Clemson's offense wasted little time in getting untracked, the Tigers' defense also appeared to be in midseason form, limiting the Golden Flashes of the Mid-American Conference to 120 yards. (more...)

Brown and Nic Weisher and completed 17 of 30 passes for 184 yards with one interception.

Open. Fognini had already been handed a series of fines totalling £18,500 after he lost his temper during a loss to fellow countryman Stefano Travaglia . "And I will have others, like every human being". This type of conduct concerns "aggravated behaviour" which is "conduct contrary to the integrity of the game". (more...)
Iowa roughs up Allen, Wyoming 24-3 Iowa roughs up Allen, Wyoming 24-3
- September 03, 2017

The second pick, which was to defensive lineman Brady Reiff, was particularly ugly. "(We) couldn't really get a running game established", Wyoming coach Craig Bohl said. If the first game was any indication, Iowa plans to use Wadley as often as it can. The senior ran for 116 yards on 24 carries and split duties with Butler, who finished with 47 yards on 10 rushes.

- September 03, 2017

As Rothstein points out, Green Bay has dominated the head-to-head matchup in recent years, including a almost quarter-century long streak of winning in Wisconsin. Whether Detroit finally has what it takes to overcome Green Bay might just come down to whether they finally have the mindset to impose their will on the rivalry. (more...)

But we knew we had to keep moving it, and that the spaces would open and the chances would come", said the Tottenham Hotspur striker, who has notched five goals under Southgate's stewardship. But the squad is otherwise well stocked, meaning Southgate can use today's game at Malta's National Stadium to hone defensive partnerships and test attacking configurations. (more...)

Defensively, Kent State football gave up 386.5 total yards, 196.8 in passing and 189.8 in rushing per game. Kelly Bryant show by his arm. They gained just 119 yards. Junior running back C.J. Fuller capped a four-play, 65-yard drive with a 26-yard run up the middle for Clemson's first touchdown. That's the case at Clemson this year, where the marching band hasn't forgotten last year's incredible title run. (more...)

Gareth Southgate: England stayed calm despite fan criticism Gareth Southgate: England stayed calm despite fan criticism
- September 03, 2017

Sterling has certainly had to develop a thick skin over the years, dubbing himself "the Hated One" after fan criticism during Euro 2016. "I haven't got a release clause, and I haven't really thought about it", he said. England can all but seal their place in Russian Federation with another three points in Monday's match with second-placed Slovakia at Wembley. However, Southgate said unlike the supporters he had been impressed at how the players had stuck to the task. (more...)

- September 03, 2017

Bryant had a perfectly placed 61-yard touchdown pass to Deon Cain on his second drive. In fact the game was such a blowout we were shocked Clemson's rabidly leftist PC police didn't show up and demand the contest be shut down on the grounds that it might trigger some snowflake "micro-aggressions" on the increasingly liberal campus.

He mirrored Watson's running ability, taking off for a 47-yard run after all his receivers were covered. And he showed the "swag" that coach Dabo Swinney promised to fans skittish about Watson's departure. With Kent State being located in OH, the Clemson band used the opportunity to remind the fans of what happened in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl matchup. (more...)
Patriots trade for Seahawks DE Cassius Marsh Patriots trade for Seahawks DE Cassius Marsh
- September 03, 2017

The Seahawks had experimented with Marsh as an outside linebacker in their 4-3 scheme in the past. Patriots coach and general manager Bill Belichick will look to Marsh to add depth at defensive end after injuries at the position and disappointing performance by Kony Ealy (who was eventually cut) left them lacking bodies at the end of camp.

Both head coaches enter their third season with their respective team and have met once in the final game of the 2015 season when MI posted massive a 41-7 victory over Florida in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. Malik Zaire was expected to step in and win the starting job after transferring from Notre Dame but has failed to master the playbook, thus opening the door for last season's starter Luke Del Rio and talented freshman Feleipe Franks to get some snaps.

Italian GP: Massa tops final practice washout Italian GP: Massa tops final practice washout
- September 03, 2017

Personally, I think that the stewards made the right call to red flag the session when they did, but missed several opportunities to resume the session during the few breaks in showers. Those who did stay for any meaningful attempt did not appear to be pushing hard, with Lance Stroll having a wobbly moment through the Roggia chicane on one of his own attempts, highlighting just how wet the track was in the session.

- September 03, 2017

That some are shocked a player of Ward's caliber and standing in the locker room is the topic in this uncomfortable football conversation means they just haven't paid attention. He's been dinged up a bit here and there throughout his time in Denver. And no one hit harder or personified a cocky, world-class defense more than Ward, who was more ticked after a 16-3 loss to the Patriots (he truly loathes the Patriots) than he ever was happy after a win (and no one in the building crowed louder).
