Kintzler recorded his 14th save of the season. He has a 10-game hitting streak, with 15 RBIs and 17 hits in 42 at-bats for a.405 batting average during the stretch.

The game ended with Dallas in position for a roughly 57-yard field goal, but Terrance Williams didn't get out of bounds after a catch and the clock ran out before Prescott could spike the ball. 25-for-45 with 227 yards with no interceptions is about as much as you could hope from a fourth round rookie starting his first game of the season.

The temperature was in the low 80s, and the air was muggy and still, and Williams kept using the pleats of her black-and-pink skirt to wipe her sweaty ...
Punk almost got free, but Gall clearly held the upper hand leaving his opponent with no choice but to tap his hand on the mat, ending the fight the way many inside UFC predicted. Velasquez is ranked #2 in the UFC's heavyweight rankings, behind Fabricio Werdum , who also won in the main card of UFC 203. As Joe Rogan was quick to point out, CM Punk played it smart by going to train with Duke Roufus at Roufusport, but he doesn't appear to have the ability to advance much past a ...

And they certainly don't earn a $500,000 guaranteed purse and a pay-per-view main card spot for their first fight in the company.
