Osweiler benched for Savage as Texans beat Jags 21-20

Osweiler threw interceptions on back-to-back drives, forcing a pass over the middle of the field with linebacker Telvin Smith standing in the passing lane on the second one. Osweiler took over for an injured Peyton Manning last season. He was dominant for the Houston offensive line and a big reason why the team was unable to score an offensive touchdown in the second half (the only touchdown was a kickoff return by Marqise Lee).

Watch Chelsea manager Antonio Conte's press conference ahead of Crystal Palace game

The 55-year-old said that coming from Italy, Conte would have had to get used to the physicality of the league, and it's different style of play, before adding: "He inherited players that were used to it, and he's been helped by that". Palace's 2-1 home defeat by United came with them convinced their visitors' opening goal should have been disallowed, and Pardew has revealed his players are "questioning" the refereeing they have faced.

For a while, the only driving games which featured Porsche cars were those made by Electronic Arts (EA). The length of the exclusivity contract remained a mystery until Kunos Simulazioni, the developer behind the Assetto Corsa racing simulator, managed to secure a deal with Porsche that would see more than 20 of its cars added to the game, including modern street cars and race cars from various eras, all recreated in painstaking detail derived directly from manufacturer data.

Ibrahimovic strikes late for United to grab win at Palace

Ibrahimovic wrapped up the three points for United with an 88th-minute victor, latching on to Pogba's pass to finish past Wayne Hennessey. Palace's James McArthur levelled the scores, with United then denied a penalty - when Joe Ledley handled in the area - and Juan Mata soon had a goal disallowed for offside, before Pogba brilliantly supplied Ibrahimovic late on to seal the win.

Surging Bucs hold off Saints 16-11 for 5th straight victory

On the next play, Martin was tackled in the end zone for a safety, and the Bucs sent the free kick out of bounds, allowing the Saints to start their drive at midfield. Once again, we can talk about players playing for jobs. With zero rushing yards in the first frame, the 11 yards of total offense gave the Saints their lowest output in a quarter since 2006.

Rexrode: Titans had to be clutch to beat Denver, and they were

Rexrode: Titans had to be clutch to beat Denver, and they were

Siemian was battered again, including being sacked twice and suffering a lacerated left hand. Siemian threw the ball 33 times in the second half against the Titans , compared to the four runs. This dominance in the run game helped overcome a poor game from Marcus Mariota , who only had 88 passing yards in the game. The work of the defense left the door ajar for the offense to, as it usually does, wait until the second half to come alive. Read More

Aguero set for City fine

Chelsea made the most of that let-off, with Diego Costa, Willian and Eden Hazard completing a superb comeback, before Sergio Aguero and Fernadinho saw red for the hosts in stoppage time. "There were lots of chances for both teams to score", said Chelsea manager Antonio Conte. The 28-year-old has scored 16 goals this season but Guardiola is understood to be "livid" he will now be without Aguero at such a critical period. Read More

Arsenal will avoid Monaco and Barcelona, who eliminated them in 2015 and 2016 respectively, as well as Atletico Madrid and Napoli in Monday's draw. That will guarantee they are spared a meeting with Lionel Messi's Barcelona in the last 16, although Bayern Munich or any two from Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Sevilla could be blocking their path after Christmas.

Police disperse unruly Penn State fans after victory - again

But in truth, Penn State's season probably would have ended differently. Sam Darnold is completing 68.1 percent of his passes for 2,633 yards, 26 touchdowns and eight interceptions. During Penn State's nine-game winning streak, the Lions have amassed at least six plays of 20 yards or longer in every game. That proved the correct decision, as Ohio State won the national championship a month later. Read More

Magic weathers Wall's 52 to whip Wizards

Elsewhere, Wall livened up what otherwise would have been a dreary match-up of two of the NBA's worst teams, scoring 52 points in a losing effort by the Washington Wizards (7-13). The Magic finished with a 26-17 scoring advantage from the free-throw line as they took a 2-1 lead in the season series.

Cubs get closer Wade Davis from Royals for OF Jorge Soler

Davis is coming off a year in which he regressed slightly from his best-reliever-in-baseball form but still had a 1.87 ERA, so this is a big get for the champs. For one year of Davis , the Cubs are giving up 4 years of team control on a player in Soler that could turn into an offensive juggernaut. New Cubs closer Wade Davis has been remarkably effective as a reliever in recent years. Read More

September games played big role in College Football Playoff for Buckeyes

Still that wasn't enough to carry Penn State into coveted real estate because it had zero momentum with voters coming into the season and its stocked dipped further after losing a non-conference game to Pittsburgh on September 10. A weak non-conference schedule was held against them even though they played very well most of the season. "You get in these tight ballgames, and you're going against great DBs", he said, "(receivers are) going to be open, but it's not going to be by much. Read More
