Thursday, October 2nd  Minnesota Vikings (2-2) @  Green Bay Packers (2-2) 8:25 pm ET @ Lambeau Field (CBS/NFLN) The Vikings are coming off of a dominating performance over the Atlanta Falcons, winning 41-28. The defense dominated Matt Ryan, who despite throwing 3 TDs, also threw 2 INTs. Now, here's where it gets interesting. In his two games, Teddy Bridgewater has thrown for 467 yards, 317 in his first start this past weekend. He is yet to throw an INT or a TD pass. He does have one rushing TD but will need to use the arm more when getting into red zone…

Article by Alexandro H. Zatarain and Manuel Alcala   In 1985, Billboard's Hot-100 Song was "Careless Whisper" by Wham! Dan Marino and Joe Montana faced each other in Super Bowl XIX, the 49ers being the eventual champs. MLB champions? The Kansas City Royals. It also happened to be the last year the franchise had made it to the playoffs. It's been 29 years since the Royals reached the postseason. 29 long years. Years in which a large portion of their fanbase either didn't know what baseball was or weren't even born! All of the excitement summed up to this moment…

Manchester City hosted Italian side Roma today in their second game of group play in the Champions League. City needed the three points as they came off a 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich and Roma beat CSKA Moscow 5-1. Eliaquim Mangala was omitted from City’s starting lineup as he did not impress against Hull City this pass weekend having given up a sloppy penalty and on own goal to give up a two goal lead. First Half City stared off the match on all pistons attacking right from the get-go. In the 4th minute, David Silva put a ball over…

Champions League can only be described as one Word for me: competitive. 32 teams from all of Europe compete to become Europe’s greatest. Today we saw PSG face FC Barcelona. The Catalans came from winning 6 out of their 7 competitive matches, tying with Malaga two weeks ago and not allowing a goal thus far. PSG faced injuries with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lavezzi both being out for the match and Ibra not being able to face his former team in which he helped own the LIGA, FIFA Club World Cup and the Spanish Supercopa while at the Nou Camp.

Past Power Rankings: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4 With the Bengals staying at #1, there is another AFC team trailing them. No, it's not the Broncos. No, definitely NOT the Patriots. It's a team that is certainly catching some fire. We also have a new #32, a team that was there recently! To top it off, we have 2 teams that are undefeated and 2 teams that are still looking for win #1! Let's also make this clear, I'm not too big in moving teams after a bye week (depending on the situation, of course). With that…

Kyle Orton To Start In Buffalo

  1 day ago     23 Views     Leave your thoughts  

After the Buffalo Bills lost to Houston last night, they had to make a major shakeup in their offense, and they did by benching starting quarterback E.J. Manuel and playing backup quarterback Kyle Orton. This is after Manuel could not lead a comeback yesterday in Houston and struggled to make plays this season with the Bills' offense. The Bills drafted Manuel in 2012 to become their franchise quarterback, but he has been nothing but a bust for his first two seasons in the NFL. In his first two seasons, he threw for 2,347 yards and 13 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. Those are…

Major League Baseball and its fans gave very-well-deserved kudos, gifts, applause, and appreciation to retiring New York Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter, and we can understand why. Jeter was an exceptional player for 20 years on an exceptional team for most of those years.

Jeter means much to baseball and to Yankee fans everywhere, and we wish him the best in his retirement. Nevertheless, one other very notable player has also hung up his  pinstripes and ended a…
