Saints crowd noise will be major factor against Rams

Saints crowd noise will be major factor against Rams

New Orleans public officials were just as eager to play off of the mayor's joke, especially with so much bulletin board material to work with. The Rams this season are 11-0 when they rush for at least 135 yards and 3-3 when they don't. Walker has 4.5 career sacks in 58 National Football League games with the Saints, Detroit Lions and Rams. They know what they're going to do and they're going to execute it. Read More

Liverpool's Klopp delighted Fabinho gives him options in central defence

Liverpool's Klopp delighted Fabinho gives him options in central defence

Salah was awarded another penalty against Brighton on Saturday after being clearly fouled by Pascal Gross and the Egyptian was subsequently booed by the crowd at the Amex Stadium after converting the spot-kick. "Trent on the ground - he's a hard boy so that's not a good sign and the doc came, something with the ankle", said the 51-year-old German. He made the sprints but I didn't like the way he did the sprints because when he slowed down, it looked a bit like limping. Read More

Ernesto Valverde believes Philippe Coutinho must fight to change the Barcelona situation

NBA to investigate Cavaliers signing, release of McCaw

A person with knowledge of the situation says the National Basketball Association is looking into the circumstances surrounding Cleveland's decision to sign Patrick McCaw to an offer sheet and then waive him after three games. "I don't know that there's been a totally non-guaranteed offer sheet before". Cleveland's weird handling of McCaw made us wonder whether they had done him a favor , signing and then waiving him so he could become an unrestricted free agent as he desired. Read More

Mike McCarthy has no interest in any other job outside of Jets

Mike McCarthy has no interest in any other job outside of Jets

He finished his time in Green Bay with a 125-77-2 record and led it to a Super Bowl win in 2011. Gase worked with Manning from 2012 through 2014-first as the Broncos' quarterbacks coach, and then as offensive coordinator. McCarthy went 135-85-2 in 12-plus years with the Packers but was sacked with four games left in the 2018 season. With Adam Gase being named as the successor to Todd Bowles in that position on Wednesday, McCarthy is set to sit out the upcoming year before planning to jump ... Read More

Lakers star (groin) remains out, to be re-evaluated in a week

Lakers star (groin) remains out, to be re-evaluated in a week

The record of LeBron James' teams when the King was forced to be on the sidelines over the last few seasons. "That's more diving for loose balls, communicating loudly, grabbing [rebounds]", said Walton about Ball and Ingram. Nikola Vucevic had 16 points and 24 rebounds for Orlando. It's hard to win in this league when you're healthy. James is still expected to miss another week's worth of games. Read More

Lamar Jackson scorches Browns on 25-yard TD run

Lamar Jackson scorches Browns on 25-yard TD run

This was Mayfield's 27th touchdown pass of the season. The celebration also came before Mayfield later hilariously threw shade at his former coach Hue Jackson, who now works for the Bengals. The Ravens rushed for 296-yards as a team. Meanwhile, the Browns had a chance to finish with a winning record the season after going 0-16. He broke the record of 26 set by Indianapolis' Peyton Manning and Seattle's Russell Wilson , and he did it despite starting only 13 games. Read More

Man City Hosts Liverpool in Vital Clash in Premier League Title Race

Manchester City's defence is not lacking in investment though and shouldn't need to rely on such a safety net. "It had wild moments". "Everyone knows Fernandinho is important for us", Sane explained after the win. Leipzig's Werner is another that has been linked with a move to the Premier League and Liverpool could be his chosen destination after the striker was given an ultimatum by the Bundesliga club, according to The Mirror .

Jürgen Klopp says Manchester City still the best team in the world

City are a big test, but should Liverpool get through it unbeaten, this could just be their year. "Of course if we win we will have more confidence, we will be happier than if we lose". Therefore I needed the experiences and impressions I've got today from the team I've played. The former England striker wrote in his Daily Mirror column: "Even if Liverpool were to beat Manchester City 5-0 at the Etihad". Read More

Steelers star Antonio Brown benched after dispute with Ben Roethlisberger, report says

Steelers star Antonio Brown benched after dispute with Ben Roethlisberger, report says

Roethlisberger said he talked to Brown on Thursday morning and said "everything was great and fine" between them. "I think Antonio Brown , he went and got this ring just to say, 'Hey look, here I am". The quarterback downplayed the incident. He can make plays all over the field, and his speed allows him to rack up yards after the catch. I have to side with Brown on this feud, as Brown is one of the single best players in the National Football League and probably doesn't love feeling ... Read More

Roger Federer and Belinda Bencic beat Serena Williams and Frances Tiafoe

The hotly anticipated event is already being billed as " Federer vs. Williams ", though they'll be joined by Swiss player Belinda Bencic and American Frances Tiafoe . If we were talking about anyone other than Federer and Williams, it'd be fair to say this is a pretty good way to cap off their careers. Federer faced three break points in his first service game, but was near flawless from that point on as he wrapped up the contest in 57 minutes at RAC Arena on Sunday night. Read More
