Rodgers looked every bit like, well, a two-time league MVP. Green Bay needs to be vigilant defensively. In this particular instance, Rodgers found Davante Adams for a 29-yard TD after dancing his way around the pocket and, somehow, releasing a throw while being pulled to the ground by a Jacksonville defender.
West and Ware in particular proved to be a solid one-two punch in Charles' absence during the second half of last season. One negative to the first half: The Chargers used all three of their timeouts in the first 16 minutes. The weak offensive front for the Chargers was nothing more than a wet paper bag against the aggressive Chiefs' defense. The loss against Kansas City would be Denver's only loss by more than a touchdown all season on their way to a Super Bowl win in Peyton Manning's ...
The Reds looked like a real threat throughout the match and outshone Leicester. - After winning three league games in a row at Anfield between 1997 and 2000, Leicester have failed to triumph in any of their last six there (D1 L5).

Their credentials for Champions League qualification will get another test next week, when they face Chelsea .

The Green Bay Packers are always in the conversation for the playoffs when talking about the NFL. They defeated the Washington Redskins to get passed the Wild Card round.

Even the best referees can make mistakes. After a frenzied Manchester derby, we run through four of the top talking points as Manchester City came away with the points. City almost had their third seconds later from a corner, as Fernandinho's excellent volley was superbly saved by de Gea. But it was a move that backfired as City immediately took a grip on the game and went ahead in the 15th minute through de Bruyne.
It ultimately mattered little as a Lallana thunderbolt in the 56th minute extended the lead of Jurgen Klopp's side, with Firmino's second following a swift break completing the rout with one minute remaining. "When the Kop started singing it, [Leicester] were alone in front of Simon [Mignolet]". It's something that depends on each other, it's nice but not necessary.
Tebow won the 2007 Heisman Trophy at Florida and played on the 2006 and 2008 national championship teams with the Gators. The New York Mets have agreed to sign Tim Tebow to a contract, ESPN's Adam Schefter has just broke the story.

He even was credited with one serve at 141mph (227km/h), which he said would be the first of his career that topped 140. So it was quite the reversal when he won four times in the same event at Cincinnati shortly before arriving at the U.S.
Arsene Wenger was happy to take his players' word that the award of Arsenal's late penalty against Southampton was correct. Southampton manager Claude Puel was disappointed his side conceded so late in the game after taking the lead in the first half.

Austin Allen ran 5 yards for the winning score in the second overtime, and Arkansas pulled out a wild 41-38 victory over No. 15 TCU on Saturday night.
Based on the Razorbacks' play last week, I'm not sure if Arkansas is up to the challenge of defeating TCU at Forth Worth just yet. If the younger Allen has success taking care of the ball and through the air, then signs point to a Razorback victory.
I didn't get to the summit tonight but it doesn't mean I'm going to give up. Punk was asked what he was saying to Mickey after the fight. This was the most fun I've ever had in my life - second best night of my life, besides marrying my wife, obviously.

But fantasy owners should not be shy to insert Ware into their lineup this weekend given the injury to West and the fact that the Chargers gave up at least 150 total rushing yards in both games against Kansas City a year ago. San Diego ranked 31st in the league last season in total rushing yards and only scored three touchdowns. Gordon started just 12 games as a rookie in 2015, and is under to pressure to deliver more this season.
Hillary Clinton's foundation has received donations from countries all over the world that imprison and even execute those they deem 'deplorable.' Christians and other Americans who refuse to embrace the Obama/ Clinton vision of America should be very concerned and should ask what Hillary Clinton has planned for those she deems 'deplorable?'

The main positive for the Vikings here though, is the trade shows that the Vikings are not willing to go away quietly this season, but they still have an uphill battle to overcome the Packers. In return for Bradford , the Eagles got a first-round selection in 2017 and a fourth round in 2018. Sam Bradford might be the ideal fit, out of the possible QBs for the Vikings because he is a player that has the talent to become a winning QB, but it's really going to be up to him to put in the ...

For Rodgers, the last three playoff losses to those three NFC West teams came on the last play of the game, twice in overtime. After a first down earned via rushing, the Packers defense intercepted a Blake Bortles pass, giving Aaron Rogers and the offense a start near Jacksonville's 30 yard line .
He is one of the best pass catchers in the league last season despite being in his first year.
