  • Former Patriot Chris Long says team suffered another loss that was 'as big a deal as Gronk'
    The retirement of superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski this past offseason hit fans hard – and it hit the New England Patriots offense even harder. The Patriots, behind 42-year-old quarterback Tom Brady, are 6-0 this season, but that doesn't mean the team's play has been as flawless as its record. Several weapons on New England's offense have battled injuries, including wide receiver Phillip Dorsett, who sat out Week 6, and 2019 first-round draft pick N'Keal Harry, who has yet to play this season.

  • Jimmy Butler on Tyler Herro's first NBA scuffle: 'I would have tossed his ass'
    Rookie Tyler Herro is having a preseason showing to remember, but might be in for some tough love from his teammates nonetheless. In the Miami Heat's penultimate game of the preseason, Herro found himself getting into it with Orlando Magic guard Michael Carter-Williams. Herro got bulldozed on Carter-Williams' path to score and was upset there was no offensive foul called. More

  • Bryce Harper opens up about Nationals making first World Series without him
    The Washington Nationals are headed to their first World Series in franchise history, a much-needed development for a team that had never won a playoff series entering the season. It's been a long time coming since the Nationals have had little to show despite winning the second-most games in baseball since 2012 and having a bevy of stars from Max Scherzer to Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg to Anthony Rendon. Plenty of ink has been spilled on the subject, but the Nationals were only able to break through after they opted to let Harper go in free agency. More

  • Mickelson impossible: Lefty almost aces 353-yard par four
    Phil Mickelson came within a whisker Friday of an amazing new chapter in his storied career when he was a fraction from a hole-in-one at the CJ Cup -- on a par four. Mickelson, who carded a second-round 72 to add to his opening 70, lies 11 strokes off the lead held by his playing partner for the first two rounds, Justin Thomas. "So it was 307 (yards) to the front, so I had to go ahead and hit it," said Mickelson, whose perfect blow with a driver took one hop on the green fringe and arrowed straight at the hole. More

  • Report: Warriors waiving Alfonzo McKinnie to keep Marquese Chriss
    The Warriors got D'Angelo Russell. Russell is a young All-Star locked in the next four years, but acquiring him in a sign-and-trade hard-capped Golden State this season.

  • Fantasy Sit-Start: Lineup advice for every Week 7 game
    Deebo Samuel is banged up and looks unlikely to play this week, so Pettis should see increased targets against a Washington secondary that's yielded the fifth-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. Terry McLaurin is admittedly tough to sit at this point, but he's the only Washington player even worth considering using in fantasy lineups against a San Francisco defense that sports the league's highest 3&Out% and is on pace to allow the fewest passing yards since 1982. The 49ers have shut down some of the league's best wide receivers this season, thanks in no small part to Nick Bosa easily leading the NFL in pressure rate. More

  • Golden Knights' Reaves, Sens' Sabourin drop gloves in one-sided clash
    When one of the toughest — if not the toughest — player in the league stares you down before throwing fists, it's understandable for the fight to end up being slightly one-sided. In Thursday night's game between the Senators and Vegas Golden Knights, newcomer Scott Sabourin, representing the visiting Ottawa team, appeared to challenge the legendary Ryan Reaves to a fight before a neutral zone face-off. Let's just say it didn't go well for the rookie. More

    Kyle Allen (Carolina Panthers) - NR Allen is the only quarterback to ever win his first five NFL starts without throwing an interception. The Carolina offense is largely being carried by McCaffrey but Allen is doing exactly what is required of him with Cam Newton still sidelined indefinitely with a foot injury, though does have a big problem with fumbles.

  • Josh Gordon absent from Patriots practice, but Tom Brady could get familiar faces back
    FOXBORO - The Patriots could see some shuffling among their offensive weapons on Monday night down in Jersey. Josh Gordon was not present at the start of Thursday's practice after suffering a knee injury against the Giants last week. Gordon didn't immediately leave for the locker room, instead taking a seat on the sideline stationary bike and pedaling for an extended period. More

  • After bad calls vs. Packers, salty Lions fans buy billboard with referee in a cheesehead
    Detroit is not letting this one go. The Lions had the Green Bay Packers on the ropes on Monday night, and multiple calls went against them.
