Truex was a journeyman driver seemingly doomed to a mediocre career. Dale Earnhardt Jr . passed McMurray late in the race to tie him in points for the final transfer spot. Truex held off Kyle Busch for the win, with Chase Elliott, Brad Keselowski, and Matt Kenseth rounding out the top five . 2013 marked the first year with the Gen-6 body, and Stewart was able to manage the new vehicle well enough for a victory at Dover , but an injury in a sprint auto accident during the summer stretch ...
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett , in a conference call with Wisconsin reporters, said he's seen most opponents overload the box in an attempt to stop Elliott, which in turn has made life easier on rookie quarterback Dak Prescott in the passing game.
But it was a 97-yard scoring drive in 33 seconds before that half that might be talked about as the turning point of the game with possible season-long implications. The all-pro tight end already had his bounce-back game last week in a 109-yard outing against the Cleveland Browns , but Sunday's game against the Bengals could serve as notice for the rest of the league that he has returned to form.
The star of the show, however, was rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. "I think we're in a decent place", said Brady, playing his second game of the season after serving his four-game Deflategate ban. Watching Rodgers struggle remains weird, but who else do you blame when your All-Pro quarterback loses a fumble inside the Dallas 5-yard line or throws a costly pick? It was game on from that point.
McClaren said: "I think you could see the nervousness of the players - but amongst that nervousness, the players showed fight, the attitude was great and we got some great blocks in at the end". I should have quashed the rumours and the speculation. 'There was a lot of honesty and things said in that room that will remain private but there was a certain amount of healing needed about my departure last time.
The young corners held up and the offense did just enough to turn aside the Giants before 78, 401 fans at Lambeau Field in Green Bay's 23-16 victory. Rodgers had unlimited time to throw on Sunday night, and the Packers' rushing attack was on point (32 combined carries for 147 yards).
He never complained. He never whined. In the aftermath of elimination, Baker was asked whether it's inevitable that a team or a city goes through hard moments before getting to a championship. That game was filled with all the curses of years past. Um, safety squeezes aren't supposed to go awry if the batter doesn't bunt the ball. INDIANS 2, BLUE JAYS 1: They don't have a true superstar, an embarrassment of All-Stars or a celebrity following, but the Cleveland Indians have depth, ...
Since joining the Gunners in 2013 for a club-record £42.5 million, the German worldwide has been the club's top assists provider, and has also become one of the Premier League's standout performers. "It's not just money". "Again, we had to be diligent against Swansea, be patient at times but when we got that third goal..." But that's what we have to show.
One of the most iconic images of the last season was the reactions of Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry in the Sky Sports studios when Brendan Rodgers' sacking from Liverpool was announced. I will be on #PLFanZone 7pm GMT so please join me and the crew wherever you are; also on our SuperSport channel. Liverpool's spending was modest in comparison, with big-money moves for Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum being financed in part by the departures of Christian Benteke, Jordon Ibe and ...

Get ready for a month of things you never could have expected. We have a different perspective down here in the clubhouse because we have to make it work. 95% of America will turn on the TV on Thursday and be shocked to see them in the postseason, but Cleveland won't be and they will give America a giant middle finger of a wake up call.
We have to be better overall on offense, not just the quarterback. San Francisco's porous defense allowed Buffalo's LeSean McCoy-led ground attack 312 yards rushing - the second-worst total in 49ers history, and 12 short of the franchise-low set against the Los Angeles Rams on November 9, 1958.

The German claimed his first Suzuka win from pole as Hamilton took third after a terrible start, Rosberg stretching his lead over his Mercedes rival to 33 points with just four races left this season.
It's his responsibility that his team - especially his defense - has dramatically underachieved. We said it then and we'll say it now: One day, the Steelers-Packers 2010 Super Bowl will be remembered as the peak of the NFL's popularity. The Jets followed with a go-ahead touchdown pass on a 15-yard pass that Cockrell thought was a certain interception. If the Jets have a real talent on offense it is running back Matt Forte.
And yet they're bidding for a 4-0 record because of a defense that no longer has the terms of a game dictated to it. Rather fittingly, the game ended with some tussling when the Vikings were simply trying to run out the clock. Beckham didn't have a meltdown on Monday night, but he did pace the sidelines after the drive that included his penalty. The call was borderline and Beckham protested, instead drawing a 15-yarder for his troubles.
The Raiders are 0.7 yards per rush attempt, 1.4 yards per pass attempt and 1.2 yards per play worse than average on the defensive side of the ball in 2016. The Chiefs certainly didn't look like the.500 team blown out 42-14 in their last outing against Pittsburgh. The Kansas City Chiefs took care of that.

The Panthers would move the ball fairly well on their first drive, but eventually Cam Newton was sacked and Andy Lee was forced to punt.
Nice job stopping the Browns' running game. The New England defense will have their hands full against Bengals WR A.J. Green and the dynamic rushing duo of Jeremy Hill and Gio Bernard. Cincinnati hosts Philadelphia and Buffalo, with road games at Houston and the New York Giants. Catching Pittsburgh will be hard. We're 4-1. One performance (against Buffalo) was awful, for sure.
Toronto, the wild-card victor, will face the victor of the Red Sox-Indians series in the next round.Cleveland leads Boston, 2-0, with Game 3 taking place on Monday evening. What a nervy 90-foot sprint it was, upshot of a bang-bang-bang sequence of a Russell Martin ground ball, aggressive slide by Edwin Encarnacion into second, poor throw to first base and off Donaldson went, bringing it home.
Guardiola said he was "proud" of his players. "That was an exciting game", Bradley said, "but it didn't finish the way we wanted". Sponsored Content: What are your agency's current data storage solutions? "From the start I asked them to play well with intensity and to try to do what we are doing in training", said Conte.
So that's why I said, 'What are you going to do?' The only position we hadn't made a move at was quarterback . In exchange for that concession, Kaepernick gets to choose if he stays in San Francisco at the end of the year. Just an appreciation type of thing, McCoy said. Kaepernick got off to a good start Sunday, leading the 49ers to a scoring drive to take a 3-0 lead on their second possession.
