Redskins Team Grades: Tie Leads Into Bye Week For Washington

All-in-all, it is hard to know how to react when a game ends in a tie. "I didn't think it was possible to tie". The scenario also surely left the Ashburn crew feeling like they let one get away across the pond. In a game where both teams were afraid to win, in the end, neither of them did. "For the time, energy and everything invested in it, that's what you want to get". Read More

Warriors come out flat in debut

It was all there, glorified by some fantastic, but obviously overreacting memes. We already know thats coming. "That's what I say to myself when I'm working", he said. Cleveland, who defeated the Warriors in last year's NBA Finals, looked more assured in its opening game, sweeping past NY on a night the Cavaliers raised last season's championship banner. Read More

No problem with Kompany - Guardiola

But Guardiola has watched his new side's form nosedive in recent weeks and City are now without a win in their last six matches in all competitions. "He has a contract, no?" We want him to have the same options as his team-mates. "It was just three days later after Southampton, so maybe that is the reason why he was exhausted". Kevin de Bruyne (ankle) and Pablo Zabaletta (foot), have been out for one and two games respectively but will be assessed later today with a view to travelling with ... Read More

Kuznetsova wins a dramatic three-set match against Radwanska

The player is said to have been inundated with questions about the incident and Kuznetsova responded by saying that the plait would get into her eye everytime she hit a good shot. "Did Sveta just cut her own hair?" she tweeted with the tears of laughter emoji. "I don't even know how much I cut there!" she admitted. But a defiant Pliskova would save three match points to tie things up once more. Read More

No. 1 pick Simmons says no timetable on 76ers return

No. 1 pick Simmons says no timetable on 76ers return

It was happening at last. Each time Embiid checked into the game, there was a loud applause. As such, judging Brett Brown's ability to coach a legitimate National Basketball Association team may have to wait another year. The times he is sitting, he will be on a bike. "It's just a respect thing, mate, you don't just come in there and rock in real hot and think you're tough because we can't touch you". Read More

Indians fans pitch in with wedding gifts for star rookie

The Cleveland Indians will play Tuesday the victor of the NLCS matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers or the Chicago Cubs. They haven't won the title since 1948. For instance, in Game One of the ALCS, Miller threw one and two-thirds innings and 31 pitches on Friday. There's really no better way to spend the night before game one, to be honest. Read More

Geno Smith questionable to return with knee injury

Geno Smith questionable to return with knee injury

Going back to Fitzpatrick is not necessarily a bad thing. Let's look at three players that need a big game today. The Jets rostered four quarterbacks this season, but unfortunately none of them are good. Smith was 4 of 8 for 95 yards and a TD to Quincy Enunwa. Smith got NY on the board in the first quarter when he tossed a short pass to Enunwa, who motored down the left sideline and outran two Ravens for a 69-yard touchdown. Read More

Justin Thomas, Paul Casey continue good form at CIMB Classic

He would have finished joint top, or even top, had it not been for a double bogey on the 18th hole. "First seven holes, I didn't feel like I played very well", said Thomas, who shot an eight-under 64 in his first round. Lahiri said: "Both yesterday and today I've played good - I think I played solid right through". Thomas' win here last year has boosted his stock for this week but he will be in tough to beat out a player that has dominated this tournament in the past for the second year in a ... Read More

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: New-look Manchester United team is starting to click

The United manager started with Belgium global Marouane Fellaini and 31-year-old wing-back Ashley Young as Mourinho looked to thwart Liverpool's in-form attack. Klopp completely dismissed the idea that his side were affected by the tag of favourites going into the crunch clash, insisting that it wasn't "that important" because they are "quite often the favourites" and are "used to being the favourites".

Andre Ayew back training but Andy Carroll still injured

The former Croatia worldwide also spoke on the peculiar nature of Carroll's latest knee injury, which will leave the striker sidelined for a lengthy spell. I'm sure that it won't be a long, long time now. "He will probably not be in the squad for the game on Saturday". "Andy Carroll picked up the injury in Romania and I didn't notice he got injured".

Johnson, Cardinals roll past listless Jets 28-3

If I were to take a wild guess, I believe the Ravens will see Ryan Fitzpatrick start this game, but he could very well be on a short leash. The pick, Fitzpatrick's league-leading 11th of the season, was a critical one, too. Fitzpatrick's last pass was a red zone interception at the end of the third quarter. Ryan Fitzpatrick is still, somehow, the starting quarterback for the New York Jets . Read More

Geno Smith to start for Jets on Sunday vs. Ravens

He added: "It definitely wasn't Fitz's fault". "I can only go week to week", the coach said. "The offensive line and the receivers take responsibility". "In a boat. With Ryan Fitzpatrick", Marshall said at the time. Not one game. Not two. "He's going to either going sink or swim". In the fourth quarter of a 28-3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the Jets pulled Fitzpatrick for Smith. Read More

Wozniacki wins 2nd title in a month at Hong Kong Open

She's 0-2 in career finals. Mladenovic went off court for some strapping on the right leg at the end of the first set, but whether she had picked up an injury was not clear. The 23-year-old Frenchwoman fought hard but eventually ran out of options. Dressed all in green, a determined Wozniacki finally sealed victory in the third set as a exhausted Mladenovic was ultimately unable to match the Dane's power and consistency. Read More

Friends reunited as Guardiola and Koeman face off

Friends reunited as Guardiola and Koeman face off

Having been held 3-3 by Celtic in the Champions League and well beaten by Tottenham before the global break, City are now three games without a win after starting the campaign with 10 on the trot. "The team will be judged but never will I change the way I want to play football: It's the only way I have", he said . On the plus side, Everton have the second-best defence in the league and only once, in 1998/99, have they conceded as few as five goals in their opening seven Premier League ... Read More
