Denver is in the midst of a tight playoff race in the AFC, and the margin for error is slim after falling to 7-4 by virtue of last week's loss to Kansas City. It'll be a test to see how the Broncos respond to being the hunters instead of the hunted, as they have for the better part of the past decade. "We were all getting exhausted", Hali said "We needed to make a play".
No one was sure what to expect from Woods, who took the longest break of his golfing life following a pair of back surgeries that made him wonder at times if he had played his last golf tournament. "All in all I feel pretty good", Woods said on Golf Channel after his round. On the seventh a ideal 5-wood off the tee and a short wedge for two feet got him his third birdie, and then a long iron on the par-3 eighth to three feet made it three in a row.
Pochettino, whose team suffered a 2-1 loss to London rivals Chelsea on Saturday, said Sissoko was yet to prove he deserved a spot.

After a shaky start to life under the Italian, this was Chelsea's seventh win on the trot in the league.

If a auto or RV didn't have the The Game on TV - an Ohio State win meant the Nittany Lions still had a chance at the Big Ten title game - someone had it the radio or was getting updates on their phone. See photos from Penn State's win over Michigan State and the celebration at Beaver Stadium after the game in the gallery at the top of this post.
Several other England players were reported to have gone out on the same evening as Rooney's late night at the team hotel, prompting a review of player downtime by the Football Association.

Goals from Jordy Clasie and Ryan Bertrand in the first half helped the Saints to their first EFL Cup Semi-Final in nearly 30 years.

"We were not good enough defensively and we gave cheap goals away", The French manager said.

The Texans lost their flawless 5-0 record at home with a 21-13 loss to the San Diego Chargers. Brock Osweiler has had a rough season thus far in his first year of a $72 million contract, and recent play does not provide a great deal of optimism for the Texans going forward.
And yet, inexplicably, Payet stood still as Antonio Valencia played Mkhitaryan through on goal, the Armenian squaring for Martial to fire home. But he said United's performance had filled him with "real happiness" and was quick to praise Mkhitaryan's contribution to a vibrant attacking display.
And now after his 62 and unbeaten 6 runs at Mohali , he further strengthened his position and jumped a spot to No.3 in the batting charts.

Anderson and Hameed stuck together for an annoying 10th wicket partnership before Anderson foolishly ran himself out for 5 leaving Hameed high and dry on 59 not out.
He has been playing good football lately and deserves the accolades. A review of the last game will show Tannehill throwing into some tight windows and even more so this game.

We've tried our best to win because the last game, on Sunday against West Ham , wasn't very good for us when we didn't win. As well as the €10m bonus for scoring 25 goals, documents leaked earlier this year suggested Martial could cost United another €10m if he reaches 25 worldwide appearances of 45 minutes or more , while at United - though at 15, he's some way off achieving this.

The visitors were short of their best at St Mary's Stadium , with Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Nathaniel Clyne all guilty of missing good chances to snatch a victory.

The Lions' head-to-head win over Ohio State, even if a Big Ten title is piled on top of it, likely won't be enough to push them in and the Buckeyes out.

The theory that turnover margin usually determines who wins an National Football League game was proven in Week 12. This team knows how to win now. "That's a respect kind of thing, I feel".

This isn't unusual for the Dolphins during their six-game winning streak.
