    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo played turnover-free for the fifth time this season, leading to their fifth win. Garoppolo was 19-of-28 for 240 yards, and the 49ers’ armada of offensive talent eventually came through with play after play, leading to Christian McCaffrey’s touchdown for their first lead, with 7:54 to spare in an eventual 22-16 win. Credit also goes to the 49ers’ defense for preserving that lead, never mind that the Chargers (5-4) valiantly fought all night without their top three wide receivers, their left tackle and their best defender, the latter being Joey Bosa, brother of 49ers’ defensive star Nick Bosa. The 49ers (5-4) now sit a half-game out of the NFC West lead, behind the Seattle Seahawks (6-4). Next up is an extended road trip to face the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night in Mexico City. But first, the 49ers will acclimate to high-altitude conditions in Colorado Springs, Colo. from Tuesday through Sunday. Their Mexico stay will last just one night, as they’ll fly out after that game, which could inflate their NFC West record to 4-0...
    Kyrie Irving will not return to the Brooklyn Nets line-up for their matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers after serving the minimum five-game suspension on Saturday. The disgraced Nets star was banned by the team last week 'until he satisfies a series of objective remedial measures that address the harmful impact of his conduct' after posting a link to the Amazon page of a film based on a book described as 'anti-Semitic'. Irving could have potentially made his comeback Sunday evening in California but new coach Jacque Vaughn revealed before his team's game with Los Angeles Clippers today that that won't be the case. 'I do know [Irving's] not available [Sunday],' he said.  'I have been told that. I can give you that.' Kyrie Irving will not return to the Brooklyn Nets line-up for their matchup against the LA Lakers Nets owner Joe Tsai announced news of his catch-up with Irving alongside his wife and Kyrie's family on Twitter Friday -- one of the six conditions allowing Irving to return to the floor after being indefinitely banned on November 3.

(Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images) Minnesota Vikings signal caller Kirk Cousins seems like a pretty buttoned up guy, but every once in a while the quarterback is known to cut loose. The plane ride home after Sunday’s comeback victory over the Washington Commanders proved to be one such occasion, as Cousins ripped it up amid a group of smiling teammates, dancing shirtless with several chains draped around his neck.

    Washington Commanders rookie Brian Robinson has completed his remarkable comeback this weekend to play against the Titans, just six weeks after being shot twice in an attempted carjacking. The 23-year-old Alabama native was the victim of gunshot wounds to his leg and hip on August 28, when he was shot while leaving a restaurant in the Near Northeast neighborhood of Washington DC. Robinson underwent surgery on the injuries, which occurred just a week before he was set to make his NFL debut, in a devastating blow for the running back.

    Each week of the NFL season, The Baltimore Sun will rank all 32 NFL teams. The rankings will take into account not just weekly performance, injuries and roster depth, but how well each team measures up as Super Bowl contenders. Here are the rankings heading into Week 5: Super Bowl contenders 1. Buffalo Bills (3-1, No. 1 last week) 2. Kansas City Chiefs (3-1, No. 2) 3. Philadelphia Eagles (4-0, No. 4) The Bills nearly lost their grip on the top spot, but after falling behind 20-3 to the Ravens, they showed why they’re still the best team in football. Buffalo got some significant help from the officials and Ravens coach John Harbaugh’s decision to go for a touchdown on fourth-and-goal in the final minutes, but it still had to execute to pull off a 23-20 comeback victory Sunday. A banged-up secondary without cornerback Tre’Davious White and safety Micah Hyde picked off Lamar Jackson twice, including one in the end zone on that fateful fourth-down play, while a defensive front missing Ed Oliver and Jordan Phillips held Ravens running backs...
    The Dolphins signed offensive lineman Brandon Shell to the practice squad and released defensive tackle Christopher Hinton from the practice squad Monday. Shell’s signing, which was reported by ESPN as an expectation last week, adds an offensive line option to help shore up starting right tackle Austin Jackson (ankle) being placed on the short-term injured reserve list last week. Jackson must miss at least four games, starting with Sunday’s 42-38 victory at Baltimore. Shell, 30, has 61 career starts, and one playoff start, in more than six seasons with Seattle (2020-21) and the New York Jets (2016-19). Shell was a fifth-round pick by the Jets in 2016 out of South Carolina. Greg Little started at right tackle and performed well Sunday against the Ravens. The Dolphins’ starting offensive line, which entered the Baltimore game with Jackson sidelined and left tackle Terron Armstead questionable with a toe injury, stayed intact for all 71 plays at Baltimore with center Connor Williams at center, Liam Eichenberg at left guard and Robert Hunt at right guard. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was only sacked once during...
    Justin Thomas started Sunday at the PGA Championship seven strokes off the lead but completed a remarkable comeback to hoist the Wanamaker Trophy. Entering Sunday at the 2022 PGA Championship, the narrative seemed to be a first-time winner on the PGA Tour getting that victory at a major championship. Mito Pereira, Will Zalatoris, Matt Fitzpatrick and Cameron Young were all heavily in the mix trying to earn that honor. Justin Thomas, on the heels of a Saturday 74 that dropped him seven shots behind the lead, wasn’t considered much of a factor. That non-factor hoisted the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday evening in Tulsa. Thomas shot the round of the day with a 67 in difficult conditions after going 3-under on the back-nine. With Pereira dropping back and having a run-in with disaster on the 18th hole, that put Thomas and Zalatoris in a three-hole aggregate playoff. While Zalatoris played the three holes at 1-under, Thomas’ pristine approach on the reachable Par-4 17th hole that led to a birdie proved the be the difference. Yeah, this shot was worth the club...
    Share this: Just six months after he resigned from office in disgrace over sexual harassment allegations, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo appeared to be hinting at a political comeback in remarks at a Brooklyn church on Sunday. The Democrat made a campaign-like stop at a Brooklyn church Sunday, delivering a speech in which he condemned “cancel culture.” The public appearance, his first since leaving office, came a week after Cuomo’s campaign launched a digital and television advertising campaign pushing a similar message: He was driven from office unfairly. Cuomo quoted the Bible several times as he described his travails then went on the offensive to attack the “political sharks” in Albany who, he said, “smelled blood” and exploited the situation for political gain.
    INGLEWOOD — There was something perfect about the way the last three weeks unfolded, according to Odell Beckham Jr., including his Rams’ loss at the hands of the 49ers in Week 18. Since that game, the Rams toppled the Cardinals and squeaked by the Buccaneers. Meanwhile, the 49ers shocked the Cowboys a week before beating Aaron Rodgers and the Packers on the road. Then the two teams collided on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles for the NFC Championship with a Super Bowl appearance on the line. The Rams, who entered play on a six-game losing streak against their rival, got their revenge, edging San Francisco 20-17 to reach the NFL’s biggest game, where they’ll face the Cincinnati Bengals. It was sublime retaliation, Beckham said. “That 0-6 (record against San Francisco),” Beckham said, “the story could not be written any better than that, to play them and shut the door.” For the majority of Sunday’s championship game, it appeared the Rams’ woes against Kyle Shanahan’s team would continue. Before the intermission, the Rams managed just one touchdown...

    Welcome back, Cameron Jerrell Newton. “I’M BAAAAAAACK” pic.twitter.com/0hKHgrEzSC — Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) November 14, 2021 Cam Newton went from the couch to the end zone (twice) Sunday, leading the same Carolina Panthers franchise that discarded him nearly 20 months ago to a blowout road victory over an Arizona Cardinals team sporting the league’s best record (at the time). My first thought was ‘good for Cam.’ As I said in this week’s NFL Recap, the NFL is better with Cam Newton in it, and it appears Carolina head coach Matt Rhule agrees since he’s all but named Newton the starter when the Panthers host Washington in Week 11. My second thought was, ‘Damn … Washington could use some of that.’ The spark Cam gave the Panthers Sunday is what Washington was looking to get from Taylor Heinicke — and never really did. I give Heinicke his props for playing what may have been his best game in Burgundy and Gold in a stunning win over the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers — the team that basically put him...

    Comedian and Friday Star Anthony Johnson Dead at 55 Why Evergrande has suddenly exploded into a potential global financial market crisis Late in the third quarter of Sunday night’s Kansas City Chiefs vs. Baltimore Ravens game, one bettor at BetMGM thought a huge payday was coming their way. The bettor put down a whopping $250,000 on a two-leg parlay in the game — the Chiefs -4 and the over 53.5. The over hit when Patrick Mahomes found Travis Kelce for a 46-yard touchdown with 6:50 left in the third, making the score 35-24. All that was left between this bettor and a $572,000 payday was the Chiefs holding onto that lead. But it wouldn’t come through. Mahomes was picked off on Kansas City’s next possession and the Ravens capitalized on the short field, scoring on a Lamar Jackson touchdown run. The two-point conversion, however, was no good, so the Chiefs led 35-30 and were still covering the spread. That led to a ton of drama down the stretch. The Chiefs punted on the ensuing possession, putting the ball back...
    (CNN)Thousands of people celebrating the return of New York City at a concert in Central Park were interrupted by severe weather ahead of Hurricane Henri's anticipated Sunday landfall.Some of music's biggest names descended on the Great Lawn at New York City's iconic Central Park for the "We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert" on Saturday to perform for a vaccinated crowd of 60,000.The concert was meant to be "a celebration of New York City's comeback" after a challenging 17 months marked by the Covid-19 pandemic and "promote health, safety, and equity," according to a news release for the show.Nearly three hours after the concert started, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) issued an advisory to all concert attendees in Central Park to evacuate "due to approaching severe weather," according to the agency's Twitter page.

    Flat on her back, gasping for breath, Allyson Felix kept her eyes on the scoreboard. When her name came up in the second spot in the 400 meters, she kicked up her heels and covered her face with her hands. No doubt, this fifth trip to the Olympics is her sweetest. The 35-year-old mom rallied from fifth at the start of the homestretch to the second-place finish at U.S. track trials. It earned her the chance to win a 10th Olympic medal and break a tie with Jamaica's Merlene Ottey as the most decorated female track athlete in the history of the games.

    DENVER (CBS4) – Sunday’s mass at Risen Christ Parish in Denver looked a lot different than it did this time last year. In addition to the masks, the biggest difference was the people who came back for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Sunday was Susan’s return to mass.

She has been attending mass on Zoom, but says it just isn’t the same. “You know the hardest thing about Zoom is you don’t have that personal touch.” She says being around a community enhances her worship experience. “It’s very fulfilling to be at mass and to again be part of a community.” READ MORE: Bicycle Protest & Die-In Planned In Denver Following Multiple Fatal Bicycle Crashes She returned because the bishops of Colorado restored the obligation to attend mass for Catholics who can do so safely. “Bishops have really been encouraging people to consider their individual situation and consider what other areas of normal activities they’ve resumed and to...
    Shohei Ohtani caps Angels comeback in Boston with game-winning homer at Fenway Have the Shohei Ohtani for MVP chants started yet? If you haven’t been paying attention, the two-way player, who plays as both a pitcher and an outfielder, has been having one heck of season. It’s like a non-stop carousel of highlights and Sunday’s game against the Boston Red Sox was no exception. The Angels were down to their last out when Ohtani, who was playing in the outfield today, stepped up to the plate. In literally the last moment, Ohtani hit a two-run homer to edge the Angels over the Red Sox to win 6-5 and stopping a Red Sox sweep in Boston.

    Conservatives have gathered in Orlando, Florida, this weekend for their annual conference, which will feature Donald Trump's comeback speech along with a host of hard-right favorites. The four-day event was moved from suburban Maryland to Florida in part because of the Sunshine State's more relaxed rules on public gatherings during the COVID pandemic. Many Trump supporters regularly refuse to don face masks. His campaign rallies were notable for the packed crowds and bare faces. And when organizers of CPAC asked attendees to mask up on Friday, in compliance with the state rules, they were booed in return. 'No,' the crowd yelled back. 'Freedom.' Most attendees didn't wear the face coverings, arguing the government cannot make them.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who opened Friday's session, didn't mention the issue in his brief remarks. Conservatives are gathered in Orlando for annual CPAC conference Many in the crowd did not wear face masks and several booed when organizers asked them to put them on in compliance with state rules Florida Gov.

    Donald Trump, according to his aides, will use his remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference next Sunday to send a message to the GOP: I am Republicans' 'presumptive 2024 nominee.' In his first appearance since leaving the White House, Trump allies told Axios in a Monday report that the former president will display his grip and influence over the Republican Party in a 'show of force' keynote speech. 'I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I'm still in charge,' a longtime adviser said of Trump's planned message, adding that payback is his main motivator right now. With President Joe Biden claiming during his White House run that he will seek reelection 2024, it appears Trump is ready for a rematch. 'Much like 2016, we're taking on Washington again,' a Trump source said. CPAC announced at the end of last week that Trump would make his grand return at the annual gathering in Orlando, Florida on Sunday, February 28. His keynote address will close out the last day of the massive conservative conference. 'Trump effectively is the...
    United Airlines passengers, pedestrians recall horror of watching engine rain debris Op-Ed: Collapseologists are warning humanity that business-as-usual will make the Earth uninhabitable The New Orleans Pelicans picked up a wild win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday. In the process, they lost shooting guard JJ Redick to one of the more bizarre ejections of the NBA season. In the midst of rallying from a 24-point second-half deficit, Redick picked up a pair of technical fouls that resulted in an early trip to the locker room. The first occurred with 11:42 remaining in the fourth quarter. Two quick technicals result in Redick's ouster With the Pelicans on offense, Redick appeared to believe that he got fouled on a pass and immediately turned around to complain to official Josh Tiven. Whatever Redick said, Tiven didn't appreciate it. He waited for the play to end with a Zion Williamson layup and whistled Redick for a technical foul. On the next Pelicans possession, Redick drew a foul that was called at the top of the key. At the stoppage in play, he...
    Getty Chad Beebe sealed a 28-27 Vikings victory over the Panthers on Sunday. Vikings Pro Bowl wide receiver Adam Thielen, who led the league with 11 touchdown receptions entering Week 12, was ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers while undergoing COVID-19 reserve list protocols. Thielen, a Minnesota native, is no stranger to the plight of Vikings fans and took the same ride from his living room on Sunday, watching his team’s rollercoaster 28-27 comeback victory over the Panthers. His wife, Caitlin, recorded Adam’s reactions to the final moments of the game as Kirk Cousins led a game-clinching drive down the field. In true Vikings fashion, it took more than a go-ahead touchdown with 46 seconds left to put the game away. It took a little luck with a wide left field goal attempt by Panthers kicker Joey Slye — a point of anxiety for Vikings fans who are still haunted by Blair Walsh’s wide left kick in the 2015 playoffs. Here’s a glimpse into Adam’s storm of emotions as the Vikings’ playoff chances were preserved...

    Pete Carroll is without question the most energized 69-year-old on the planet.Was Pete Carroll all jacked up on Mountain Dew on Sunday night because he sure looked like it? Carroll’s Seattle Seahawks went after the Minnesota Vikings‘ defense like a spider monkey in the final seconds of Sunday Night Football.

    For the first time in 693 days, quarterback Alex Smith played in an NFL game. Smith entered the game at the two-minute warning of the second quarter, after Kyle Allen took a shot in the arm on the sideline. “Very surreal,” Smith said. But even after Smith took the field, little went Washington’s way in the team’s 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Smith threw a screen pass to J.D. McKissic on the first play from scrimmage. He showed pocket presence and even some mobility. The offensive line didn’t help out much, as Aaron Donald welcomed him back by jumping on his back for a sack on the first possession. Smith was sacked six times by the Rams defense and completed 9 of 17 passes for 37 yards. With weather an issue, you have to be able to run the football, but Washington couldn’t do that Sunday. The team had 14 attempts for 38 yards, with a 2.7 yards per rush. You read that right, 38 yards on the ground. Nobody is going to win with numbers like that....
    The Oakland Zoo rescues two female mountain lions from a wildfire in California The best drive-thru restaurants in the USA Alex Smiths comeback breaks through the dark clouds hovering over the NFL this week At 2:22 p.m. ET Sunday, late in the second quarter of the Washington Football Team’s 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, a moment that once seemed so improbable, so far away, finally came to fruition. That’s when, during the middle of a live, actual, regular season NFL game, Alex Smith strode into the huddle in the middle of FedEx Field, looked 10 other men in the eye and called the next play.  And then, with his loving wife Liz and their three kids watching eagerly from the stands, Smith took his place five yards behind center, barked out a hard count, received the snap and immediately dumped it off to J.D. McKissic on a swing route for a short gain. In the context of the game, it was an inconsequential play. Washington trailed by 13 points late in the second quarter, and after Smith...

Once the clock struck zero, Dak Prescott and the Cowboys had a 100% chance of winning. How they got there in such a short amount of time was due to Prescott’s leadership, his offensive weapons, and some pure, dumb luck. © Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott led a remarkable comeback in Sunday's improbable victory. But they would have never been in that situation without Prescott. More than any other, this game showed why a Dak Prescott contract extension makes sense for both sides. The media talked endlessly about the Dak Prescott contract extension this offseason. At one time, it was reported that Prescott was asking for as much as $40 million per...

    By NOAH TRISTER, AP Baseball Writer Carlos Carrasco won his first start since his leukemia diagnosis, Yoenis Céspedes hit a home run in his return from major leg problems — and Daniel Bard had the longest road back of them all. This past week was obviously an emotional one for many people in baseball, and it was especially significant for players who had lengthy absences even before the coronavirus shut the sport down in March. Bard had not pitched in the major leagues since 2013, and after his control and confidence deserted him, his playing career appeared over before he attempted a comeback this year. He made the roster for the Colorado Rockies and earned the win in relief Saturday against Texas. Carrasco was diagnosed with leukemia last year. He was back in the bullpen for Cleveland in September and took the mound Sunday as a starter, beating Kansas City. Céspedes hadn't played since 2018 — he had surgery on both heels and broke an ankle — but he was back Friday, homering for the New York Mets for the...
