    Getty Quarterback Matt Ryan and the Indianapolis Colts blew a fourth-quarter lead to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11. Things felt different for the Indianapolis Colts early against the Philadelphia Eagles. The team scored its first touchdown on an opening drive of the season and held a double-digit lead heading into the fourth quarter. The only two times the Colts have possessed leads at the conclusion of the third quarter this season are the two games since Jeff Saturday became head coach. But then, all of the sudden, things again turned to disappointment for the Colts. The offense didn’t reach the end zone in the second half, and the defense yielded two touchdown drives in the fourth quarter, allowing the Eagles to escape with a 17-16 victory. “That’s a tough one to swallow,’’ quarterback Matt Ryan told the media after the game. “We did a lot of really good things. We made too many mistakes along the way. “Yeah, that one feels like, you know, we let it get away.’’ #Colts QB Matt Ryan: "That one feels like...
    10 thoughts after the Chicago Bears showed the emotional fallout that arrives with a thud when playing four days after trading away the team’s highest-paid player. The Dallas Cowboys got off to a fast start against a Bears defense that had played well of late and rolled to a 49-29 victory before 93,767 fans on Sunday at AT&T Stadium. 1. I totally understand trading Robert Quinn. I don’t think anyone will say general manager Ryan Poles made a bad decision sending the veteran pass rusher to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fourth-round draft pick. Some folks around the league said it was interesting the Eagles got the Bears to pay down the contract this season, essentially sending $7 million in cash with Quinn to Philadelphia. But the Bears got something for a player who wasn’t in their plans for 2023, and it’s not like they’ll have a shortage of salary-cap space moving forward. Poles almost foretold what was coming, though, when he discussed the difficulty he had in making the move, understanding how it would ripple through a young locker...
    BALTIMORE (AP) — Randy Arozarena hit a two-run double off All-Star reliever Jorge López in the 10th inning, and the Tampa Bay Rays recovered from another late lapse to beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-4 Wednesday night and end a four-game losing streak. Baltimore’s Jorge Mateo sent the game into extra innings with a one-out solo shot in the ninth off Colin Poche (3-1). One night earlier, Poche entered in the eighth inning with a one-run lead and yielded a two-run homer. “I didn’t even think twice about putting him in the ballgame,” Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said. The result, unfortunately for the Rays, was strikingly similar. “You feel for Colin a little bit,” Cash said. “I saw on the highlights that the ball was up where he wants it. Mateo just did a good job of getting to it and knocking it out of the park.” This time, however, Tampa Bay rebounded from Poche’s mistake. An infield hit and a walk loaded the bases for Arozarena, who ripped a pitch from López (4-6) to the base of the right-field...

    SAN FRANCISCO — Last Thursday, after three one-run losses to the surging defending champions, the Giants boarded their charter flight home from Atlanta in need of a fresh start. One player remarked about the cleansing nature of returning to the crisp summer air of the Bay Area after a few soupy days in the south. What followed was anything but refreshing. Call it the home stand from hell. A 13-2 loss Sunday capped a series sweep at the hands of the White Sox and a stretch of eight games at Oracle Park that resulted in two wins. Hosting three teams with losing records, they failed to take a series from any of them. Their latest loss came hours after manager Gabe Kapler called out his team for a lack of energy. But the nine innings that followed featured the same sloppy defense and anemic offense that has plagued them all home stand. The bulk of the White Sox’s runs came after Donovan Walton botched what would have been an inning-ending double play by throwing wide to Wilmer Flores at second...
    A catastrophic June came to end for the Oakland A’s with an 8-6 loss on the road to the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night. The A’s finished June with a 5-21 record and will carry a four-game losing streak into July. Adrian Martinez, who was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to pitch the game, gave up seven earned runs in 4 ⅔ innings. Martinez was one of the players acquired in the April 3 trade that sent Sean Manaea to the San Diego Padres. Martinez gave up a run in the first inning, but Elvis Andrus tied the game up in the third inning with a solo homer to left field. The Mariners took back the lead in the third inning with a solo shot by Julio Rodriguez in the third inning. Dylan Moore launched a two-run homer to extend Seattle’s lead to 4-1 after four innings. Ramon Laureano tied the game in the following inning with a three-run opposite-field home run. It was a short-lived tie, as Seattle scored four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning,...
    This story first appeared in the Boston Herald. BOSTON — If they are to rebound from their first two-game losing streak of the postseason and fight off elimination, the Celtics will have to summon a level of energy that wasn’t apparent at the end of their Game 5 loss on Monday night. Ime Udoka has admitted that after four rounds and 24 games of playoff basketball, compounded by an increased minutes load for his regulars, the Celtics probably showed the result of fatigue that night. “It could be a fatigue thing,” he said after Wednesday’s practice. “We’d like to get those guys a little bit more rest and have some fresh bodies coming off the bench to keep them fresh at the end of the game. You look at all those things, as far as rotations, lineups.” Jayson Tatum’s jump shot certainly showed the result in the form of three fourth-quarter airballs, but the Celtics star doesn’t want a change now from a pace that has him averaging almost 41 minutes in the Finals. To wit, Tatum showed up for...
    ANAHEIM — Almost two weeks ago, the Mets began their odyssey through the Golden State to play three of the five major-league teams based out of California. Then, the Mets had a 10.5-game lead over everyone else in the division. Then, they had just won a season-high six straight games. The atmosphere on that cross country flight was one of confidence and spunk. But when the Dodgers welcomed the Mets to Hollywood by snapping their win streak, and doubling down in game two of a four-game set, the Amazin’s quickly found themselves in an 0-2 hole with eight games to go. It was a critical moment for a team that was being tested. The Mets could’ve sank further into the hole and listened to the fan base’s hysteria. Instead, they did just the opposite. The Mets won the rubber match, 3-1, against the Angels on Sunday at Angels Stadium to complete their 10-game road trip against the Dodgers, Padres and Halos going 5-5. Edwin Diaz was summoned out of the bullpen in the eighth inning for a five-out save. The...
    St. Louis Cardinals (14-10, second in the NL Central) vs. San Francisco Giants (14-11, fourth in the NL West) San Francisco; Friday, 10:15 p.m. EDT PITCHING PROBABLES: Cardinals: Jordan Hicks (1-2, 3.65 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, 13 strikeouts); Giants: Alex Cobb (1-1, 5.40 ERA, 1.90 WHIP, 14 strikeouts) BOTTOM LINE: The San Francisco Giants will try to break their four-game losing streak when they play the St. Louis Cardinals.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Jeff Petry scored his second goal of the game in the final minute of the third period and Sam Montembeault made 24 saves as the Montreal Canadiens beat the playoff-bound New York Rangers 4-3 Wednesday night to snap a nine-game losing streak. Petry scored his sixth of the season with 31 seconds remaining to put Montreal ahead for the fourth time and forge a victory for Martin St. Louis, the former Ranger who took over behind the Canadiens’ bench in early February coaching for the first time at Madison Square Garden. Ryan Poehling and Mike Hoffman also scored for Montreal, which had lost nine straight in regulation since a 7-4 win at New Jersey on April 7. Ryan Reaves, Frank Vatrano and Ryan Strome scored for the Rangers, and Barclay Goodrow had two assists. Alexandar Georgiev finished with 20 saves. JETS 4, FLYERS 0 WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Eric Comrie made 35 saves for his first NHL shutout and Winnipeg beat Philadelphia. Kyle Connor had an empty-net goal and two assists to push his season...
    SUNRISE (CBSMiami/AP) — The streak is over. Florida’s franchise-record 13-game winning streak came to end Sunday night when Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos each had two goals and two assists, Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 37 shots and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Panthers 8-4. “We knew the streak they were on,” said Tampa Bay’s Nick Paul, who scored twice. “And we wanted to come here and be the ones that ended it.” READ MORE: Suspected Lake Worth Beach Bathroom Voyeur Chased By Woman, Made To Delete PixThe Lightning won their third straight, and have scored 22 goals in that stretch. Victor Hedman had four assists for Tampa Bay, which got two power-play goals and a short-handed tally. Brayden Point and Cal Foote also scored for the Lightning, who remained alive in the race with Toronto for the No. 2 spot behind Florida in the Atlantic Division. There were fights, bloodied faces, bloodied jerseys, and even Florida interim coach Andrew Brunette saw his night end early. Cooper shrugged it off as just the latest chapter of Panthers-Lightning. “The playoffs are like...
    SAN DIEGO (AP) — Austin Nola hit a sacrifice fly with one out in the 10th inning for the San Diego Padres, who won 3-2 on Saturday night to snap a 10-game losing streak to the rival Los Angeles Dodgers. Nola’s sac fly scored rookie CJ Abrams, who started as the automatic runner at second base and advanced on Trent Grisham’s sacrifice bunt. Justin Bruihl (0-1) took the loss. The Padres had been outscored 57-23 during the losing streak to the Dodgers, which dated to Aug. 24. Losing three straight series to Los Angeles late last season helped contribute to the Padres’ stunning collapse, which left them with a losing record for the 10th time in as many full seasons since 2011. Padres left fielder Jurickson Profar, who misplayed Trea Turner’s fly ball into a tying two-run double in the eighth, threw out automatic runner Chris Taylor trying to take third on a flyout opening the 10th. Robert Suarez (1-1) then struck out Mookie Betts. The Dodgers had been shut down in order for five straight innings by Yu...
    MONTREAL (AP) — James van Reimsdyk had two goals and an assist, Ivan Provorov had a goal and an assist and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Montreal Canadiens 6-3 Thursday night to end a six-game skid. Oskar Lindblom, Morgan Frost and Travis Konecny had Philadelphia’s other goals. Bobby Brink had his first career multipoint game with two assists. Martin Jones made 31 saves. Mike Hoffman, Jake Evans and Cole Caufield scored for Montreal. Carey Price made 28 saves as the Canadiens (20-47-11) lost their seventh straight. Philadelphia got on the board at 7:43 of the first period when van Riemsdyk grabbed a loose puck behind the net and banged it in from a tight angle. Provorov gave the Flyers a two-goal advantage at 14:25 of the second with a wrist shot from the faceoff circle. Hoffman cut Philadelphia’s lead in half just over a minute later by tapping in a loose puck. Brendan Gallagher was credited with an assist but appeared to have made a hand pass. The Flyers did not challenge. Montreal tied it when Evans deflected Jeff Petry’s...
    DENVER (AP) — Johan Camargo had four hits, including a three-run home run in a five-run seventh inning, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Colorado Rockies 9-6 on Wednesday to stop a three-game losing streak. Kyle Schwarber added a rare homer into the right field third deck at Coors Field, and Nick Castellanos and Alec Bohm also went deep. The Phillies finished a 2-5 trip with their second win in nine games. READ MORE: Justice Department To Appeal Order Voiding Travel Mask MandateThe switch-hitting Camargo, starting at shortstop for the injured Didi Gregorius, had three singles before his shot to left against lefty Lucas Gilbreath, who forced in the tiebreaking run when he hit Schwarber with a pitch with the bases loaded. Jhoulys Chacin (2-1) allowed a walk and two singles in the fifth. Ryan McMahon doubled twice and drove in three for the Rockies, who couldn’t complete the three-game sweep. Schwarber crushed Germán Márquez’s 0-2 slider 468 feet to right in the sixth for his fourth homer to tie it at 4, the third-longest home run of Schwarber’s big...
    Cincinnati Reds (2-9, fifth in the NL Central) vs. San Diego Padres (7-5, fifth in the NL West) San Diego; Tuesday, 9:40 p.m. EDT PITCHING PROBABLES: Reds: Reiver Sanmartin (0-1, 6.14 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, four strikeouts); Padres: Joe Musgrove (1-0, 1.42 ERA, .71 WHIP, 14 strikeouts) FANDUEL SPORTSBOOK LINE: Padres -184, Reds +158; over/under is 7 1/2 runs BOTTOM LINE: The Cincinnati Reds, on a seven-game losing streak, take on the San Diego Padres.

    CHICAGO (AP) — Alex DeBrincat scored the lone goal in the shootout after having three assists in regulation and the Chicago Blackhawks snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 5-4 win over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night. DeBrincat beat James Reimer with an in-tight move in the third round of the shootout. Chicago’s Kevin Lankinen followed by stopping Erik Karlsson’s shot from the slot as Chicago ended an 0-6-2 slide. Jaycob Megna scored on a rebound from a flurry in front with 3:25 left in the third to tie it at 4 and send it to overtime. Megna connected with Lankinen sprawled on the ice after he stopped Timo Meier’s shot. Patrick Kane scored his 24th goal and added two assists for Chicago. Dylan Strome notched his career-high 21st goal and had an assist, and Taylor Raddysh and Calvin de Haan scored. Seth Jones had two assists. The Blackhawks’ losing streak was their second longest this season after they went 0-7-2 in their first nine games. Meier scored his team-leading 32nd goal for the Sharks, who have lost...
    Chicago White Sox right fielder Adam Engel hit a popup near home plate with two outs in the fifth inning Thursday at Guaranteed Rate Field. Seattle Mariners catcher Cal Raleigh, battling the wind, dropped the ball and Engel reached second on a two-base error. Jake Burger followed with a popup between second and third. Shortstop J.P. Crawford couldn’t make the catch on a play that was ruled a, scoring Engel and bringing the Sox within a run on a blustery afternoon. Raleigh made up for his miscue in the seventh with a home run — the second of three homers on the day for the Mariners, who topped the Sox 5-1 in front of 13,391. “It’s just a weird day,” Sox first baseman Gavin Sheets said. “We were talking on the infield. Everybody had to help each other out, because you never knew which way the ball was going to go. “It was moving about 20 feet out there, at least, in the air. You’re just helping out your teammates on those.” The Sox were limited to four singles —...

    As abruptly as Khalil Mack’s time in Chicago started in 2018, it ended Thursday. The Chicago Bears are trading the six-time Pro Bowl edge rusher to the Los Angeles Chargers for a second-round draft pick in 2022 and a sixth-round pick in 2023. Ryan Poles’ first major move as Bears general manager signified his willingness to tear down the Bears roster in a rebuild. Mack leaves Chicago having totaled 36 sacks, 35 tackles for a loss, 52 quarterback hits, 14 forced fumbles and two interceptions in 53 games over four seasons. Here’s a look at how his career here unfolded. Sept. 1, 2018 As the Bears got ready to open their first season under new coach Matt Nagy, general manager Ryan Pace pulled off one of the biggest moves of his tenure. The Bears sent 2019 first- and sixth-round picks and 2020 first- and third-round picks to the Oakland Raiders to acquire Mack, then 27 and entering his fifth NFL season. The Bears, who also got a second-round pick and a conditional pick that became a seventh rounder in the...
    MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Taz Sherman scored 21 points and West Virginia’s veterans came through to beat TCU 70-64 on the Mountaineers’ senior day to snap a seven-game losing streak Saturday. West Virginia coach Bob Huggins said his frustrations over watching his team make the same mistakes boiled over Thursday while studying film with his players. He pulled his freshmen out of the session and let them go practice their shots. The veterans had to stay in the room and figure it out for themselves. Huggins was hoping his older players — some playing in their final home game — would double their efforts to finish the regular season strong. They did. Sherman was 9-of 17-shooting with three 3-pointers and another fifth-year player, Malik Curry, added 10 points for the Mountaineers (15-16, 4-14 Big 12). Senior Sean McNeil scored 10 points, including the clinching free throws, as did sophomore Jalen Bridges. Mike Miles Jr. scored 17 points and Damion Baugh and Micah Peavy 12 each for TCU (19-11, 8-10), which took a punch to its NCAA Tournament resume by losing...
    Ravens tight end Mark Andrews finished his career year in style Sunday as he caught five passes for 82 yards and a pair of first-half touchdowns to help lead the AFC to a 41-35 victory over the NFC in the return of the Pro Bowl in Las Vegas. But it was the quarterback who threw Andrews those scores — Los Angeles Chargers’ second-year quarterback Justin Herbert — who took home offensive MVP honors. Maxx Crosby of the hometown Raiders was the defensive MVP. “I think it’s a great opportunity to come out here and play some of the best football players this game has to offer,” Herbert said. “What an opportunity to learn more about their game, understand them, get to know them and just have some fun.” Mac Jones passed for 112 yards and threw a touchdown pass, and the New England rookie also did a memorable rendition of the Griddy in the first Las Vegas edition of the NFL’s annual All-Star game, back from a one-year hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Herbert won...

    DALLAS (AP) — Roope Hintz and Joe Pavelski scored 75 seconds apart late in the third period, and the Dallas Stars stopped Pittsburgh’s 10-game win streak with a 3-2 victory over the Penguins on Saturday. Hintz scored on a backhand at 16:14 after Pavelski converted a rebound at 14:59, sending the Stars to their fourth straight win. Denis Gurianov also scored and Jake Oettinger stopped 27 shots for Dallas. Jason Robertson assisted on all three goals. Brian Dumoulin and Kasperi Kapanen scored in a 25-second span early in the first period for the Penguins. Tristan Jarry made 29 saves. Pittsburgh had the NHL’s longest winning streak this season. It is 18-1-1 when leading after two periods. PANTHERS 4, HURRICANES 3, OT RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Anthony Duclair scored at 2:53 of overtime and Florida beat Carolina.

    Near the end of a game Sunday that had defied most logic and rational thinking, tight end Mark Andrews looked up at the scoreboard inside M&T Bank Stadium, staring at a score that was painful not only because of how close the margin was but also how far the Ravens had fallen. The Ravens, depleted by injuries and the coronavirus, had lost to the NFC-leading Green Bay Packers, 31-30, but they’d also been just a 2-point conversion away from a last-minute go-ahead score. Quarterback Tyler Huntley’s 8-yard scramble with 42 seconds left had almost been enough to keep the Ravens in command of the AFC North, but instead they were left with a third straight loss and second-fiddle status in the division. The narrow defeat set up a potentially season-defining rematch next Sunday with the Cincinnati Bengals (8-6), who hung on to beat the Denver Broncos and now lead the AFC North by virtue of their Week 7 win in Baltimore. A loss at Paul Brown Stadium could put a division title out of reach and send the...
    INGLEWOOD (CBSLA) — In an important game between the top two teams in the AFC West, the Los Angeles Chargers came up short against the Kansas City Chiefs, losing in overtime, 34-28. In the duel between two of the best quarterbacks in the AFC West, Patrick Mahomes came out on top with 410 yards, three touchdowns and one interception on 31/47 passing. READ MORE: 19-Year-Old Charged With Hacking Into Google Classroom Accounts, Posting Racist, Homophobic PhotosHowever, Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert by no means had a bad game scoring three total touchdowns, two in the air and one on the ground while throwing only one pick. He finished the game with 236 yards and completed 22 of his 38 pass attempts. The Chargers received the opening kickoff, which Andre Roberts returned for 75 yards before tripping and getting tackled on Kansas City’s 24-yard line. Despite the prime field position, Los Angeles could not find the end zone and turned the ball over on downs. On the final play of the drive, tight end Donald Parham Jr. dove for a pass and sustained...
    The 49ers are going as far as George Kittle can take them. Maybe that’s not the ideal setup for extended success in 2021, but it was a sight to behold Sunday as the 49ers beat the host Cincinnati Bengals 26-23 in overtime. Kittle, who is playing tight end at a level perhaps never seen before in the NFL, caught 13 passes for 151 yards. If anything, the numbers don’t do him justice. Only two passes thrown in his direction by grateful quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo were incomplete, and on one of them a defender had one of Kittle’s arms pinned to his side, no flag was thrown and Kittle nearly made a one-handed downfield grab along the sideline. The end came when wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk made a superlative effort to get the ball over the pylon on a 12-yard pass from Garoppolo, and the 49ers had salvaged a game that appeared to be won, then lost, then maybe even tied. Garoppolo (27 of 41, 296 yards, two touchdowns) calmly led the 49ers for the winning...
    EVERTON are going through a bit of a rough patch under boss Rafa Benitez. And with the Merseyside derby coming up on Wednesday, the Toffees will be desperate to avoid a crushing and embarrassing defeat. 9Fans didn't take a liking to the appointment of Benitez, and the poor form is mounting more pressureCredit: GETTY IMAGES 9The transfer of Townsend was widely criticised in the summer, but he has turned out to be one of Everton's most important players this seasonCredit: ALAMY They find themselves 14th and are heading into the game off the back of a loss to league newcomers Brentford. The Toffees are also enduring a horrid seven-game run without a win. Liverpool, on the other hand, have won 4-0 in their last two Prem outings and would relish the chance to inflict more damage on their local rival. And if Liverpool do run riot at Goodison Park, the loud boos heard after the full-time whistle at the Brentford Community Stadium will be oh so louder. A trashing at the hands of Liverpool could, in fact, push...
    Derek Carr has been around the NFL long enough to know the mood and perception of a team can flip in an instant. Just a few days after looking as down as he ever has publicly after a loss in the NFL, Carr was in a much better frame of mind after his aggressive play helped lead the Las Vegas Raiders to a 36-33 overtime win over the Dallas Cowboys that snapped a three-game skid. “It is really hard when nobody likes you, nobody cares for you, nobody wants to text you before the game anymore, those kinds of things. Not saying it happens to me — maybe some people,” Carr said. “For us to battle through all that — we were up against a wall. There was no doubt about that. That’s just a fact, everyone can see that.” The Thanksgiving day win for the Raiders (6-5) kept them in the playoff hunt in the AFC after they were in danger of falling out of it after being held to 43 points in the three-game skid. The offense had...
    HOUSTON (AP) — Danuel House Jr. had 18 points, Christian Wood added 16 points and 10 rebounds and the Houston Rockets ended their losing streak at 15, beating the Chicago Bulls 118-113 on Wednesday night. Kevin Porter Jr. had 14 points, six rebounds and nine assists after missing three games because of a bruised left thigh. Second overall pick Jalen Green scored 11 points in the first quarter before exiting with a left leg injury. Houston improved to 2-16. It shot 50% from the field and made 17 of 36 on 3-pointers, going 8 of 11 from behind the arc in the third quarter. Zach LaVine led Chicago with 28 points. Lonzo Ball added 19 points, DeMar DeRozan had 17 points and seven assists, and Alex Caruso scored 15 points. Nikola Vucevic had 14 points and 13 rebounds in his return after missing seven games in the NBA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Chicago cut Houston’s lead to three on LaVine’s layup, but House responded with a 3 to increase the lead to 109-103 with 2:23 remaining. After the teams...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Tom Brady is the most prolific winner in football history. That doesn’t happen by accident. The flip side of that equation is that when Brady does lose, he’s generally quite mad about it. Such was the case on Sunday. Coming off their bye week, Brady and the Bucs were not sharp at all, losing on the road to the Washington Football Team by a 29-19 final. Brady was 22-for-34 for 220 yards with two touchdowns but also two interceptions. After the game, Brady wasn’t much up for conversation. He took the podium — dressed in a thick black hoodie with a bulky winter coat and a knitted winter cap on his head — and gave a suggestion to the assembled media: “Make it quick.” He answered a question about what the Washington defense did to alter Tampa’s game plan, one question about the challenge of coming off the bye week, and one question about what happened on his two interceptions. “Uh, we started with the ball and they came away with it,” Brady curtly answered...
    WACO, Texas (AP) — Gerry Bohanon threw a touchdown pass and ran for two scores, Baylor’s defense constantly pressured Caleb Williams and Spencer Rattler and the No. 18 Bears beat No. 4 Oklahoma 27-14 on Saturday to end the Sooners’ nation’s-best 17-game winning streak. Abram Smith had 148 yards rushing, including a 75-yard scamper to set up the first of Bohanon’s two rushing TDs in the fourth quarter, and the Bears (8-2, 5-2 Big 12, CFP No. 13) rebounded from an unexpected loss last week at struggling TCU. The Sooners (9-1, 6-1, CFP No. 8) were held to 260 total yards, their fewest ever for Lincoln Riley in his five seasons as head coach and two seasons as offensive coordinator before that. Baylor fans stormed the field when they thought the game was over, but there had been a timeout, and three seconds remained. Pretty much all of Oklahoma’s team had left the field and it took several minutes to clear the field. After an extended discussion among the referees, and an irate Riley, the defense returned...
    LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Either No. 18 Kentucky or Tennessee will end a two-game losing streak when they meet this weekend. Kentucky (6-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) might have more reason for concern following defeats at top-ranked Georgia and unranked Mississippi State. The loss to MSU followed followed a bye week for the Wildcats. One bright spot the Wildcats is that Saturday night’s matchup of border rivals is the game is at Kentucky, where they’re 5-0 this season. The Wildcats hope familiar scenery spurs a rebound from last week’s 31-17 dud at MSU. Mississippi State was “more physical than us, and that can’t happen,” coach Mark Stoops said. “They seemed to be more motivated at times, certainly more physical at times, executed better. You name it, they outplayed us and it’s up to us to get back to being who we are.” Kentucky’s offense has stalled the past two weeks, averaging just 229 yards. Ball protection might be the bigger issue for the Wildcats after committing four turnovers last Saturday in Starkville, two of which MSU converted into third-quarter touchdowns that...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Alex Iafallo had two goal and an assist, and the Los Angeles Kings ended a six-game losing streak by beating the Montreal Canadiens 5-2 on Saturday. Arthur Kaliyev and Rasmus Kupari each scored on the power play, Anze Kopitar and Matt Roy each had two assists, and the Kings won for the first time since their season opener. Cal Petersen made 26 saves. Josh Anderson scored for the second straight game, but the Canadiens were unable to post consecutive wins for the first time this season. Jake Allen allowed five goals on 38 shots. After scoring just six goals in the second period through seven games, Los Angeles got two against Montreal, with special teams putting them in front after being largely absent during the winless skid.

The Kings tied it up at 1-all when Viktor Arvidsson beat Allen with a wrist shot from the...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) — The Miami Dolphins have a tough matchup this week, heading up to Buffalo. After losing back-to-back winnable games, it is a tall task against the Bills Sunday.

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona played its worst game under first-year coach Jedd Fisch a week ago, a 34-0 loss to Colorado that left the Wildcats searching for answers. Their bid to end a school-record 18-game losing streak doesn’t get any easier this week. Not only do the Wildcats have to face Washington on Friday night, they’ll do it after losing two starting quarterbacks to season-ending injuries in consecutive weeks. “I think what happens is when you get injuries or when you start thinking like, how do we get out of the rut, you start saying to yourself, is there something more I should do outside of my job?” Fisch said “And our big message is, do your job and trust the process and recognize that we can all build this thing together.” Few things have come together for Arizona so far this season. The Wildcats (0-6, 0-3 Pac-12) had some good moments against BYU and No. 10 Oregon, but struggled in nearly every phase in the loss to Colorado. Compounding matters, quarterback Gunner Cruz suffered a season-ending...
    A Lane Kiffin tweet spoke more than the character limit when he reacted to getting pelted with a golf ball following chaos at the end of Ole Miss-Tennessee. College Football rivalries often times call for superlatives to be attached to key moments. Saturday’s chaos in Knoxville will go down as The Golf Ball Incident after Tennessee fans foamed at the mouth and drooled all over any respectability other SEC fan bases assumed they had. After what Ole Miss radio called four hours of praising the awesome atmosphere, Vols fans imploded like a collapsing sun and the stadium descended into knuckle dragging buffoonery that makes even the loudest mouth breathing football crowds consider a switch to breathing through the nose. The Golf Ball Incident prompted by the Neanderthals at Neyland. Tennessee took a shot downfield on a fourth-and24 play that appeared to have worked. Officials, however, ruled that tight end Jacob Warren was stopped just short of the first down marker which resulted in a turnover on downs and effectively ended any hope the Vols had of continuing a  upset game-winning...
    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — There may be debate over the Southeastern Conference’s top team this season. After Saturday, though, there should be little doubt about who’s at the bottom when Vanderbilt faces South Carolina. The schools have the two longest league losing streaks. The Commodores (2-4, 0-2 SEC) have lost their last 15 straight in the conference while the Gamecocks (3-3, 0-3) have dropped nine SEC games in a row. Both programs, under first-year coaches Clark Lea at Vanderbilt and Shane Beamer at South Carolina, are desperate for a streak-busting victory to show players and fans things are trending in the right direction. “I think it is two teams that are going to be fighting for a win on Saturday that have experienced varying levels of disappointment,” Lea said. “But also are improving and finding identity through the year.” Right now, the identity for the two is continuing struggles against the SEC. Vanderbilt’s last conference victory was almost two years ago, a 21-14 home win over Missouri . It lost its final four SEC games...
    Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports Let’s break down 10 tight end sleepers to target for fantasy football Week 4. With Week 4 of the NFL season officially underway, let’s take a look at ten fantasy football tight end sleepers.10. Dawson Knox, Buffalo BillsRostered: 50.4% Dawson Knox is sixth among tight ends in fantasy points this season. He has been remarkably consistent scoring a touchdown in three straight games. Last week, he had his best game of this season with five receptions for 37 yards and two touchdowns. The Bills’ offense was dominant against the weak Texans’ defense scoring 40 points, which afforded Knox more opportunities to get into the end zone. Knox has established himself as a solid, reliable TE1. Knox has been targeted six times in the red zone this season, which is tied with Darren Waller and Kyle Pitts for the highest total among tight ends. He is a strong option this week against the Chiefs’ defense, which is allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. In addition, the Chiefs’ defense is giving up 31.3 points per...

New York's playoff hopes have just about completely faded away, but ace Jacob deGrom isn't letting that reality prevent him from working toward a return to the rotation from the sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow that has since healed on its own.  © Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports It was reported last week deGrom was on track to make at least one start before New York ends the campaign on Oct. 3, and he told reporters on Tuesday he expects to be back before that date.  "I feel good," deGrom said after he tossed 20 pitches off the mound at Fenway Park, per SNY. He has another throwing session off a mound scheduled for later in the week.  "I know what was said, but my...
    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Tiffany Hayes had 22 points, eight rebounds and three steals, Monique Billings had her second consecutive double-double and the Atlanta Dream beat the Dallas Wings 69-64 on Sunday to snap an 11-game winless streak.

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Gerrit Cole racked up a season-high 15 strikeouts over seven excellent innings to earn his AL-leading 14th victory, and the New York Yankees snapped their four-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night. Aaron Judge hit his 30th homer and Luke Voit had a two-run single for the Yankees, who had won 13 straight before their skid.

Cole yielded four hits and didn’t walk a batter while posting his biggest strikeout total since joining the Yankees. The right-hander was outstanding throughout his first start in his native Orange County since he spurned the Angels’ big-money offer in free agency two years ago for New York’s even bigger $324 million deal. Cole, who went to high school 4 miles from Angel Stadium, improved to 4-0...
    Other than national champion Alabama, perhaps no team had a better end to last season than Stanford, which won its last four games despite not being able to play or practice on campus. Now, will that momentum carry over to this season? “It was difficult, it was hard. But the experience was awesome,” Cardinal coach David Shaw said. “Our young people grew that year. They fought difficult things, difficult circumstances, and they went out there and performed and they performed at a high level. … Resilience is one of the most important things that you can have as an individual, being able to bounce back from difficult circumstances. Our guys showed that resilience every single day.” After Santa Clara County prohibited contact sports due to rising COVID-19 cases, last year’s team was forced to spend three straight weeks on the road, staying in Seattle, Corvallis, and Santa Barbara. They practiced at high schools and community colleges and held walkthroughs at public parks and parking lots. “Part of our team’s covenant was to do whatever it took,” left...
    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — All-Star slugger Joey Gallo hit his first home run since the break, a towering three-run shot to put Texas ahead, and also had two assists from right field as the Rangers ended a 12-game losing streak with a 5-4 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. Dane Dunning (4-7) allowed two runs on six hits in 6 1/3 innings. The right-hander struck out three and walked two while earning only his second win in his last 12 starts. Ian Kennedy, who like Gallo could potentially be traded before Friday’s deadline, pitched a perfect ninth inning for his 16th save in 17 opportunities — and first since July 9. The D-backs had scored twice in the eighth, when they also left runners on first and third. Gallo launched a 1-0 fastball off the batter’s eye beyond center field in the fourth inning off Taylor Widener (1-1), two batters after David Dahl’s ground-rule double tied the score 2-2. Before his 25th homer of the season, Gallo had gone 2 for 32 with no RBIs and...

    Amazon starts new chapter as Jeff Bezos steps down as CEO Stock futures are flat after S&P 500 and Nasdaq notch another round of records New York Mets starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco has yet to make his MLB debut for the club as he continues to recover from the torn hamstring that first sidelined him in March and has made him a non-factor through the opening half of the season.  © Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Carlos Carrasco is yet to play for the Mets after getting sent to N.Y. in an offseason trade with Cleveland. Per Anthony DiComo of the MLB website, Carrasco participated in pitchers' fielding practice for the first time during this process on Monday. DiComo added on Twitter that the 34-year-old is on track to make a big-league start by the end of July and before the trade deadline.  Carrasco received a platelet-rich plasma injection to strengthen his hamstring several weeks ago and resumed throwing exercises shortly after.
