'Guardiola is fortunate to avoid wrath of City fans'

The victory was only City's fifth in 16 games and was their first at home in the Premier League for nearly three months. The revolution certainly has not taken off as people might have anticipated but City should feel better for Wednesday's 2-0 victory, even if it was tempered by another bad blow for the luckless Ilkay Gundogan.

Longtime sports broadcaster Craig Sager dies at 65

I'm very sorry to inform you all. I'm happy I was able to witness it in front of these fans. Sager was given the 2016 Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the ESPYs. Sager marveled in later years at how easy it was for him to get so close to Aaron. However, his ill returned, forcing him to step away.

Patriots claim Michael Floyd off waivers from Cardinals

Floyd, 27, has struggled this season, catching just 33 passes in 13 games and seven starts for 446 yards with four touchdowns. It was his fourth-highest yardage total of the season. In claiming Floyd, the Patriots inherit the remainder of his contract, which expires after the 2016 season. The addition of Floyd could help the Patriots stretch the field, allowing for smaller receivers such as Julian Edelman to find more space underneath to catch passes and pick up yards after the catch.

How Pogba reacted to facing brother in Europa League

Manchester United will play Saint-Etienne in the round of 32 of the Europa League in a pairing of Pogba brothers. "Saint-Etienne have lots of tradition".

Adam Schefter reported the Browns have what one source described as an "astronomical grade " on Garrett. The Browns lead the San Francisco 49ers (1-11) in the race to the first overall pick.
