  • Owning the Giants means owning up to the mess
    Whatever Odell Beckham Jr. says to the media matters little. The only thing that needs to be said is the one thing John Mara will never admit: "I screwed this up." More

  • How Chris Paul's wife, Rajon Rondo's girlfriend reportedly became involved in fight
    Saturday at Staples Center turned into Fight Night with Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo and Rockets point guard Chris Paul in the center of the action.  The incident involved more than just the players on the floor, though. While fists flew on the court More

  • Ohio State drops from No. 2 to No. 11 in post-Week 8 AP poll
    Urban Meyer watches during the first half of Ohio State’s loss to Purdue. (AP) Ohio State’s blowout loss to Purdue led to a nine-spot drop in Sunday’s AP top 25. The Buckeyes lost 49-20 to the Boilermakers and fell from No. 2 to No. 11. Clemson moves More

  • Missing time will hit Gronk in the wallet
    For the second straight year, the Patriots gave tight end Rob Gronkowski a contractual adjustment that hinges exclusively on playing and producing. The news that Gronk didn’t fly with his teammates to Chicago and could miss Sunday’s game against the Bears due to ankle and/or back injury will impact his earnings, in two ways. First, he won’t earn this week’s $62,500 installment toward a $1 million roster bonus premised on being on the active roster for every game. More

  • Jalen Ramsey: “Ain’t no secret what’s going on and it ain’t right”
    Losing their fourth game in five was frustrating enough for the Jaguars. Specifically, the defense is feeing the pressure of having to carry an offense that can’t do anything in the absence of Leonard Fournette and with the return of Bad Blake Bortles. Defensive end Yannick Ngakoue didn’t talk to reporters after having to be held back from something by Calais Campbell (before locker room doors were closed to reporters), and cornerback Jalen Ramsey admitted that they’re a mess right now. More

  • Watch Rajon Rondo punch Chris Paul in Lakers-Rockets NBA brawl
    In LeBron James' first regular-season game in Los Angeles as a Laker, Brandon Ingram shoved James Harden after the reigning NBA MVP argued a foul call. Rondo and Paul started to argue, and Rondo punched his counterpart after the Rockets point guard put his hands in Rondo's face. More

  • 'Old man' kicks long field goals at Colts game
    Turns out this old fellow had quite the leg. (via screenshot) So as part of the NFL’s “Crucial Catch” promotion, the Indianapolis Colts offered to donate $70,000 to cancer research if a fan could kick field goals from 20, 30 and 40 yards. Seems like a More

  • Report: Joe Girardi waiting for opening with a Chicago team
    Fancred’s Jon Heyman reports that former Yankees manager Joe Girardi took himself out of the running for the Reds’ and Rangers’ managerial openings. Current Cubs manager Joe Maddon has one more year left on his contract. While the Cubs have played quite well under his tenure, the front office and Maddon haven’t had any discussions about an extension, which means 2019 might be his final year with the club. More

  • 10 takeaways: What to make of Ohio State's shocking loss to Purdue
    For the second consecutive season, Ohio State went on the road against an unranked Big Ten opponent and laid a dinosaur egg. Last year, it was a befuddling 55-24 loss at Iowa, which ultimately cost the Buckeyes a spot in the College Football Playoff. This year, Ohio State went to Purdue and imploded in a spree of red-zone ineptitude, critical penalties and a defense that offered little more than token resistance. More

  • World Series Predictions: Who Wins It All Between the Red Sox and Dodgers?
    The Dodgers and Red Sox square off in a battle of big-market behemoths (and a rematch of the 1916 World Series, of course). Will Boston secure its fourth championship in the last 14 years? This should be a closely-contested series, especially the middle three games under the blessed National League rules. More

  • NFL rumors: Jon Gruden expected to overhaul Raiders roster over next two years
    Jon Gruden has a 10-year, $100 million contract with the Raiders, but the coach evidently doesn't have the players he wants. Teams have the sense that the Raiders have made every player on their roster available ahead of next week's NFL trade deadline, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported, and that Gruden -- not general manager Reggie McKenzie -- is the man to see about making the best deal. More

  • Red Sox considering bold World Series plan for Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez
    The Boston Red Sox don’t know who they’ll face yet in the World Series, but they do know they’ll have to play at least two games in a National League ballpark next weekend. When the scene shifts to Los Angeles or Milwaukee for Games 3, 4 and potentially 5, the designated hitter will be out, which in their case could eliminate J.D. Martinez and his MVP-caliber bat from the lineup. More

  • Breer: Le'Veon Bell's a fit for New England, but he won't come cheap
    With Sony Michel potentially out for significant time period, the New England Patriots could be in the market for another running back, which begs the question -- could disgruntled Steelers star Le'Veon Bell be acquired? On Patriots Postgame Live, Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer said Bell would certainly be a fit, but the cost might be too much, suggesting the bidding would start with a second-round pick. "They [the Steelers] figure, if they just let him play his contract out, the one year tender out, and they let him go in free agency, they're gonna get a third-rounder and a comp pick back anyway," Breer said. More

  • Value of Sixers' future 1st-round pick could diminish as abolishment of one-and-done hits snag
    The Sixers' decision to trade 2018 No. 10 overall selection and Villanova product, Mikal Bridges, to the Phoenix Suns for Zhaire Smith and Miami's unprotected first-round pick in 2021 pulls on the coach's heart strings to this day. "That was a painful night," Brown said prior to Saturday's game against the Orlando Magic. Now that deal might hurt the Sixers even more down the road. More
