But the world champion pointed to the fact that he had already come back from a 43-point deficit to Rosberg after the first four races of the season as a reason for optimism. "Once I did my second or third stop we managed to sort it out". After watching his 19-point lead evaporate over the last three races - all won by Rosberg - since the summer break, Hamilton insists he is not too concerned.
The 48-year-old lawyer, nearly unheard of at the start of the campaign, beat his Dutch rival Michael van Praag by 42 votes to 13 at an extraordinary congress in Athens. Ceferin is a lawyer who took over his father's business and has spent the last five years sorting out the Slovenian FA's finances so it could build a proper training centre.
The first of four goals in a damaging 29-minute period for Stoke came in the 41st when Son volleyed in Christian Eriksen's cross to finish off a sweeping counter-attack. "It was so tough at the end of last season. Now he can focus on playing football only". It means Pochettino, who favoured a similar 11 from week-to-week during their title challenge last term, expects Son and others on the fringes of the first team to feature more regularly.
Chun made three birdies through eight holes and held a five-shot lead until a double bogey at the par-5 ninth. Minjee Lee was next best of the Australian contingent at even-par 71, while Karrie Webb fired a 72 that featured two opening and two closing bogeys.
With his size and speed, the Bears envisioned the 6-foot-3, 216-pound White forming a dominant tandem with Jeffery when they drafted him. Ashlon Jeffrey had 105 yards on four receptions in the first half. 2nd down: The Eagles provided a glimpse of what the offense can look like. You're undersized for an National Football League running back. Veteran Brent Celek likely will take most of the snaps in one-tight end sets, with Trey Burton joining Celek in two-tight end sets.
However you view the game, what has sold out the 60,000 tickets for Celtic Park and brought Rod Stewart back off the plane is the same weight of history that has forever been attached to the rivalry and the fixture. There's a uniqueness to each one and this one is iconic throughout the world. "I know the places he goes and the places I go probably differ with the tan and the teeth and that kind of thing", the 34-year-old said about the Celtic manager.
Antoine Bethea recorded an interception on the Panthers' second offensive play after NaVorro Bowman deflected a Cam Newton pass. San Francisco simply keyed on stopping L.A. As expected, linebacker Luke Kuechly was all over the field against the Broncos, finishing the night with 10 tackles. "We can't keep going on those lulls", Newton said.
The rehab and recovery is being headed by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's Sports Medicine Concussion Program. "Seeing his response to treatments has been very positive".

Alvarez , who knocked out Briton Amir Khan in his last fight in May, has lost just one of 49 pro bouts, to Floyd Mayweather on points in 2013. The obvious question came right after the fight, and it was all about the unified world middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.
Garoppolo was driven into the ground on his shoulder by Miami linebacker Kiko Alonso. Garoppolo initially attempted to play through the injury before kneeling on one knee after absorbing the hit.

Winston's 30-yard pass to Austin Seferian-Jenkins in the back of the end zone climaxed a four-play, 75-yard quick strike to start the second half. OK, too many seasons have gone by with the rally cry, "Wait till next year!" Dirk Koetter makes his debut as Tampa Bay's coach, and his success working with Winston as the offensive coordinator previous year has prompted high hopes for the quarterback's second pro season.
The rationale provided by the NCAA included points describing how "the dynamic in North Carolina is different from that of other states".

Rosberg, who was 43 points clear of Hamilton after the first four races of the year but 19 behind at the summer break, now leads his title rival by eight points with six races remaining. I pushed so much at the end with that supersoft and really tried to do something but it wasn't close enough. "I just had to watch the other guys pull away, and I was just looking at different ways to try and get them back under control".
Dom Capers, the defensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers, has made a habit of shutting down the Vikings offense and over the last two seasons has been the stopper of Vikings offensive rhythm. When on one third-and-goal play half the unit thinks the call is a pass and the other a run and on another the pass protection goes one direction when it's supposed to go the other, you have work to do.
Dez Bryant smiled as he looked down at his phone and listened to reporters offer ideas for how the Dallas Cowboys could get their top receiver the ball more often. Morris had no problems leaving the Redskins, the team he has played for since 2012 when he entered the National Football League as rookie, and joining their division rivals.
Roman did a lot more good than bad for the Bills, but Ryan has always utilized a run-first style dating back to his time with the Jets that wasn't working with Roman and running back LeSean McCoy. "He's running the show and that's what you want", Roman said about Taylor. In the first two games of the season, the Bills combined for just 553 total yards.
Cousins finished the Monday night game with completing 30 of 43 passes for 329 yards with no touchdowns and the two interceptions. Why not have star cornerback Josh Norman follow Antonio Brown around instead of letting the Steelers match him up on Bashaud Breeland? "When anyone's on [Brown], that's a matchup we like", Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said.
As for when that help will arrive, well, it could be awhile. Consider: the players listed as questionable or worse for the Colts this week include their top four cornerbacks, two of their top three safeties, three of their top four defensive linemen, and their top two rush linebackers.
I thank the physiotherapists for it and for the good results. ParalympicsGB hope the momentum will continue from here to Tokyo 2020 and beyond. Blake, whose mother Kate used to be a dancer in the Royal Ballet, could add another gold in the 800m final today and plans to celebrate with a McDonalds in the athletes' village.
Ko has struggled with her game all week and needed to produce something special Saturday to get back into the tournament but went the other way. "I think I made a really good second shot, and then third shot - because I tried really good to visualize my third shot".

The opening stages of the contest set the tone for the rest of the match with the first four games lasting 27 minutes and despite being a break down, Del Potro recovered to seize what proved to be an important advantage. He said: "I saw talent in him when he was young". "I have to play the match on my terms if possible". Britain beat Belgium 3-1 in last year's final on clay in Ghent to claim a first Davis Cup crown since 1936.
PREDICTION: The Packers know they need to beat the Vikings if they want to reclaim the NFC North, and Aaron Rodgers certainly will be ready to do his part. Their elite ability has been supplemented by exceptional durability, further underscored by the devastating knee injury that knocked Minnesota quarterback Teddy Bridgewater out for the season and maybe longer.
Mahrez scored a brilliant free-kick and a second half penalty to seal the three points in Group G after Marc Albrighton had opened the scoring on five minutes. As a result of the successful and well-organized games last season, Burnley managed to take first place in the Championship of England, and gained promotion to the grade, a year later, he returned to the Premier League.
If fans didn't already have the pitch forks out, that should certainly do it. There were plenty of milestone's from Thursday night's game. In that game, yes, the Bills offense was a complete and total disaster. If that means sitting him down until he's healthy, they should do it. Let's face it - the playoffs are a pipe dream now, anyway. The Jets were headed to Buffalo on a Thursday night - a night on the National Football League schedule that has traditionally seen some sloppy play ...
It's also really hard to dislike the guy, ask this ref here . Telling me to keep my head up. "We played zone, man, blitz. But it didn't go our way". PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ben Roethlisberger threw for 259 yards and three touchdowns to offset a pair of interceptions and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cincinnati Bengals 24-16 on Sunday.
The dejected Liverpudlian added: 'I was slow and had no timing to even make him think twice. Smith fell to 23-1 with one drawn and 13 knockouts. The t-shirt Canelo Alvarez wore as he entered the arena (more on that later) was downright hysterical, and throughout the fight it was impossible not to notice how massive Canelo is, which only confirms that the plan to gradually build him into a legitimate 160-pounder is a smokescreen.
That fact reminds me that I'm not getting any younger, but if watching Southern Miss athletes go on to succeed at the professional level comes along with aging, I guess I can stomach it. Against Oakland, one touchdown drive lasted 11 seconds. The Jaguars released a statement Tuesday afternoon that said Ivory was doing well. "So you always have to be anxious about that going in and facing that team".
A late caution flew when Michael McDowell blew a tire and set up the overtime restart. The current round of 16 drivers has two races remaining - September 25 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and October 2 at Dover (Del.) International Speedway.
Luck's nemesis this time around is exclusively the Denver defense, which roughed up Cam Newton, earning fines in the process. The defense actually gave up less touchdowns than the offense did (the defense allowed one touchdown to the Broncos; the offense allowed two touchdowns to the Broncos) and the defense held the Broncos when they needed to, which was about all they could have reasonably expected the unit to do.
Sophie Wells and Valerius started Britain's gold rush yesterday, scoring 74.857% to finish just ahead of Belgium's Michèle George. In 2012, the country ranked fifth out of the 164 countries that competed at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
