True, the team collapsed when Barcelona scored the opening goal and Andres Iniesta entered the pitch, but Los Blancos were performing well and even though they needed 90 minutes to score their only goal, they nearly managed to get out of the Camp Nou with the three points, something that would've nearly finished the race for La Liga as Barcelona would be nine points behind, just like Sevilla , with Atletico trailing by 11 points.

ESPN's Jim Bowden reports the deal includes an option for a sixth year that would raise the overall value of the contract to $83 million. He is a former infielder though, which may make the transition to first base easier. Last offseason the qualifying offer caused Desmond's market to dry up. He bounced back well, putting up a.285/.335/.446 line with 22 home runs and 21 stolen bases for the AL West champions while playing primarily centerfield.

He was the 2014 Comeback Player of the Year, a year after he played in just seven games because of injuries to his back, forearm and knee. If the Patriots are fortunate enough to get to those games and he responds well after surgery, there is a scenario where he could play in those games.

Huskies fans were holding up signs at games late in the season, proclaiming "We want Bama". That's OK, since there were no other one-loss teams in contention.

Barrett was forced to celebrate from the confines of a scooter as he recovered from a broken ankle suffered during the fourth quarter of a win over MI.
But the result doesn't matter. Roberts netted Celtic's fourth-minute opener before Kelechi Iheanacho levelled matters in a Champions League dead rubber that finished 1-1 at the Etihad Stadium .

Odell Beckham Jr .'s postgame rant about what he considered poor officiating in Sunday's 24-14 loss to the Steelers was met with a surprising and counterintuitive response from Giants coach Ben McAdoo.

Trump also said he plans to end the defense sequester, which is expected to require large cuts to the Pentagon's budget next year, as well as fix problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs and build up the USA military.

"We all are very determined, because we didn't have a very good series in New Zealand, we have to play hard and we have to bounce back.
