Three-time Vuelta victor Alberto Contador moved up to third overall by finishing eighth on the day to leapfrog Esteban Chaves. Froome ahead of Contador and Quintana while Chaves was quickly losing time. If Froome is to reel in Quintana, he'll need to do it in Friday's individual time trial and Saturday's summit finish. The Colombian has not officially won the race yet, he just needs to cross the line on Sunday's sprint stage, which is traditionally a procession for overall contenders.

ESPN football writer Adam Schefter broke the news Thursday morning. Tebow, the 2007 Heisman Trophy victor and former Denver Broncos quarterback , performed decently at his workout on August 30th, showing decent speed for a man his size (Tebow is 6'3 and 245 lbs.) by running the 60 yard dash in roughly 6.70 seconds, as well showing off somewhat decent power in Batting Practice, which included an estimated 430 foot home run.
The mood was positive ahead of kick-off following the returns to the starting XI of both Dimitri Payet and Manuel Lanzini, but the way West Ham crumbled soon soured the afternoon for Slaven Bilic and supporters alike.

Wawrinka won a five-set quarter-final on his way to a first Grand Slam win at the Australian Open two years ago.
Djokovic, the best player in tennis for five years now, maintains a 19-4 margin. When he won the 2015 French by routing Djokovic, he effectively denied the Serbian the Grand Slam.

Wentz hasn't played since suffering a hairline fracture in his ribs during the first preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Overeem , a highly-decorated heavyweight and former kickboxing world champion, said in his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan that he believed Miocic tapped out when Overeem had the guillotine briefly locked in.

The game can be watched on TV on the CBS network, or online through free live stream via the link provided below. The Jets kick off the 2016 regular season today.

Folk booted a 20-yard field goal with 11:26 remaining in the fourth to close the gap to 20-19. Looking for a Cincinnati Bengals vs. Folk's 23-yarder gave the Jets a 22-20 lead with 3:25 to play.
The current record was set in 2013 , when 115,109 people showed up at Michigan Stadium to see the University of Michigan Wolverines beat Notre Dame. Tennessee is deeper, but the offensive line looked awful against App State. Let's just say 100,000 in attendance are there to have some alcoholic beverages.
Overeem pounced and wrapped his arms around Miocic's neck for a quick guillotine submission, but the champ was able to roll out and get back to his feet. Miocic landed a pair of right-handed hammer fists before throwing a left-right combination to Overeem's face. Who will walk away with the UFC Heavyweight title? "Stipe was going to different parties", Overeem said.
Before losing starting quarterback Tony Romo to injury in Week 3 of the preseason, the Cowboys were listed as a 4-point favorite in this season opener. Romo missed 12 games last season due to a collarbone fracture. "Anything that I know, that I can help him with, I've played against the NFC East before, I've played against a lot of the teams we're going to see, I've been in those stadiums, any kind of knowledge I can impart on him without bombarding the guy".
Sure enough, Kerber broke Pliskova twice in the first set, including in the first game of the match en route to a quick 2-0 lead. Kerber was coming off a tiring run to the Olympic gold-medal match then and dealing with the pressure of her first chance to ascend to the top of the rankings.
You could be sat on the moon and see it is a clear foul. "I took the touch away from [Fer], he came through the back of me". "It's a huge disappointment because I think we had control of the game most of the time and their two goals came from our mistakes, so obviously it's disappointing", Azpilicueta added.
Republicans have been quick to hit back at Clinton. But "Trump has built his campaign largely on prejudice and paranoia", she said , adding: "I won't stop calling out bigotry and racist rhetoric in this campaign". He later compared Clinton's statement to Republican Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign gaffe, when he said that 47 percent of the people would vote for Barack Obama's re-election because they are "dependent upon government", and " believe that they are victims".
We've got video of them with the designed out-of-the-pocket [plays], but that's not what they're there for.

Casey made a 25-foot eagle putt on the 15th hole to briefly get within one shot, only for Johnson to make an 18-foot eagle on top of him. It's just going where I'm looking. "When he gets on his game maybe he's the best ball-striker in golf, maybe the longest, and he showed it today". "So, if he keeps doing what he's been doing - what he averaging, 6 under a day? - if does the same tomorrow, there's no catching him".
The Chile global showcased his excellent footwork and footballing brain throughout City's 2-1 win at Old Trafford, moving outside his area to get involved in play and starting attacks with his passing and long throws.

But the old stager Wawrinka brings an undoubted big-game temperament, including a stunning record in finals. "Stan is a big match player", Djokovic said when asked about the Swiss, who has won his last 10 finals. The betting odds and predictions were against Stan Wawrinka, but once again, he overcame and defeated Kei Nishikori at the 2016 US Open. Four of the other five matches have gone to the fifth set, and that includes a draining five hour, two minute battle in the fourth round ...

The Real Madrid winger scored six minutes into his first match of the season to help them brush off Osasuna 5-2.

We couldnt find the speed or precision we needed at the right moments, lamented Iniesta .
In the middle of September, with the temperature in the upper 80s and the heat of battle over 100, Angelique Kerber did a snow angel. "It's just wonderful", a beaming Kerber told an adoring crowd.

It would not have been a massive surprise if her new world ranking had gotten the better of her and clouded her concentration - it wouldn't be the first ...
Open. "To keep a clean sheet, I was very happy with", said Casey, who posted a bogey-free round in "ugly" conditions. "The trainer is maybe thinking it's the same type of thing that he dealt with at the Barclays and past year where he picked something up in his bus and it kind of got out of line".
