Petersburg, Fla. Staked to a 7-0 lead against the Rays, Tanaka gave up four runs in six innings - all of them coming on solo home runs in the fourth.

Carolina Panthers Coach Ron Rivera wants Cam Newton to receive the same protection on helmet-to-helmet hits as other quarterbacks get in the NFL. Whether the reason being the pace of the game and helmet to helmet cannot always be seen, or the mentality officials have on Cam because of how he plays and his size, none of that should matter.
Ask players, and they believe Houston was a trial run - that ultimately failed. "I did enjoy watching them play", he said . Meyer said the discussions centered on Oklahoma's defensive personnel. Barrett has thrown for 498 yards through the air, completing 66 percent of his passes and has thrown six touchdowns with a QBR of 178.6.

On this occasion, Harry Houdini couldn't slip out of the straight-jacket. "It never feels good losing, of course it doesn't, but no regrets", said Smith.

On Monday, after defeating the Green Bay Packers, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer confirmed Peterson's injury. On that timetable, Peterson's season could be over. I promise I'm not trying to cultivate a hot take ( that's what we have Brinson for, anyway ).
