Now "The California Kid" will look to get back in the win column as he fights in Sacramento for the first time since a 2013 victory over Michael McDonald. Following a brief dalliance at flyweight, Pickett returned to his home at bantamweight in July 2015 and lost in highlight-reel fashion to Thomas Almeida via flying knee knockout.
The Foxes stunned everyone with their Premier League victory last season, and their 1-0 win over Copenhagen at the King Power Stadium has put them firmly in the driving seat in Group G. "But the players have a good feeling we can beat them in Parken (Stadium) in 14 days". It was a match-winning intervention from a player who was born in the Danish capital and his side now go into the second half of the group stages needing just one more victory to continue their fairytale run.
Tottenham should be happy with a draw against Bayer Leverkusen, captain Hugo Lloris has insisted. A long-term injury to Alderweireld wouldn't have ruined Tottenham's season, but it likely would have ended Mauricio Pochettino's Premier League title hopes.
While he did return to close out the game, it became apparent shortly thereafter that Roethlisberger would require surgery. Any chance Pittsburgh (4-2) has of hanging in there against the surging Patriots (5-1) depends on it. "We can't spend any time lamenting that performance and who is available or who is not available", Tomlin said Tuesday. Through his first three National Football League seasons he has thrown for three touchdowns, four interceptions and 513 yards on 32-of-56 passing.
The guys really fought throughout the entire Test match even though the first two days in the entire Test match we were totally outplayed. "Unfortunately we didn't get over the line and unfortunately we couldn't save the game but a hell of a lot of positives we can take from the game".
The Baggies took the lead through former Spurs man Nacer Chadli in the 82 minute but Dele Alli scored for Tottenham in the 89 minute to help end the game at 1-1. He prevented Albion going in three or four down at half-time with cracking stops to keep out Alli on a number of occasions and Christian Eriksen .
But I welcome the opportunity of having Dak playing at this level and Tony back in excellent health. Well guess what? Those questions were answered in full and then some, as the Cowboys would go on to win 28-14 over the Bengals and improve to 4-1 on the year.
Osweiler's turnaround in the final minutes also salvaged his box score, finishing with a respectable 25-for-39 passing for 269 yards and two touchdowns. Nick Novak hit both of his field goals, including the game winning kick, but he missed an extra point attempt earlier in the game. I got seven. You might have gotten six or eight.
Injuries have marred the early portion of San Francisco 49ers running back Carlos Hyde's National Football League career, and he's once again on the mend after suffering a shoulder injury. Draughn entered Week 6 as the team's primary backup running back, but Davis emerged ahead of him. He averaged 1.7 yards per carry on 35 rushes as a rookie.
They needed only four plays to retake lead, with Beckham and Manning connecting on that clutch 66-yard slant on fourth-and-1. "It's time to go make a play". The loss was the third straight for the Ravens (3-3), but it didn't hurt because Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Cleveland all lost. Still, as McAdoo pointed out, it's probably best to keep your head in the game rather than thinking about what you're going to do with a kicking net.
Chelsea's mastery was nearly underlined with a goal for former Leicester hero, man of the match N'Golo Kante, but his goalbound strike was kept out by Wes Morgan. Cascarino believes Conte dealt with the situation superbly but suspects the 46-year-old is willing to endure such petulant behaviour due to Costa's importance to the Blues .
There is little chance of Leverkusen departing from their tried and tested methods and Bender insists they will look to stop Spurs from playing. "He also fits our style perfectly, the way we play, the pressing". By contrast, Leverkusen have had a patchy start to the season and come into today's game with two wins from their last seven games. We try and make them play our football - that's what we demand of our opponents, and if it works we normally win the game.
Grub's up: What is NZ's most patriotic dish? . When asked about who would caddy for her for the remaining three events of the season, Hogan was pretty sure Ko already had a bagman lined up. "She's very easy to work with". The world No.1's recent struggles have been well documented but Hogan believed that, purely because of her form at the corresponding tournaments in previous years, Hamilton should have been retained.
I've railed against the lumping of "injury only guarantees" in contract reporting of guaranteed money, which, well, is like saying you are guaranteed to make a lot of money this year just because you are listed as a beneficiary on someone's life insurance policy.
A draw against the Baggies was the catalyst to Spurs' season unraveling last term, and though their challenge is unlikely to fall away in a similarly dramatic fashion this time around, this could yet be a huge opportunity missed come the final reckoning.
The Texans now lead the division at 3-2, but every other team in the division has two wins after Sunday's action. Coach Bill O'Brien was asked in his post-game presser how big of a win the game was against a Division rival. The Colts led 23-9 after a 36-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri with 7:04 remaining in regulation. His first touchdown was a 1-yard run in the third quarter that was his first as a Texan .
Crosby felt good enough Tuesday to spend almost an hour on the ice skating alongside injured teammates Bryan Rust and Matt Murray, but he declined to set any sort of timeline on when he may return. Sullivan declined to reveal how the concussion happened. "I'm always happy", he said. Crosby skated today and said he went "pretty hard". "Obviously Sid is our captain, but in the absence of Sid in the lineup we have strong leadership and veteran guys, whether they wear a letter or don't wear a ...
West Indies have endured a wretched time on tour, suffering humbling whitewashes in the preceding Twenty20 and One-Day International series. Nawaz finished with 2-30 on debut and Wahab Riaz took 2-65. But Shah's second scalp of the innings and seventh in the game meant the chances of the visiting side upsetting the No.2 ranked side diminished significantly.
Pakistan's celebrations in winning the first meeting of the three-match series smacked as much of relief as joy, while the Windies were left to reflect on a fruitless effort as the outcome was decided with 12 overs remaining. That decision by Misbah changed the course of entire match followed by the approach of all Pakistani batsmen in their second innings. "So tonight we have a man at sweeper and we haven't got a silly point to Bravo and that's simply because the game is getting closer".

The best news tonight is we have one point more and a clean sheet, nothing else. But his patience ran out when United centre-back Eric Bailly caught Daniel Sturridge and Young was then booked for dissent after Jordan Henderson escaped censure for a foul on Ander Herrera.
He was right to make it because unlike so many others, a head coach can't react only to the last 10 seconds of highlights. With the day not over yet, the Redskins can possibly find themselves in a tie for first place with the Dallas Cowboys with identical 4-2 records, if the Cowboys fall to the Green Bay Packers later on today.
This comes after he dropped the Colombian following a mistake against Olympiacos in the second match of it last time round.

Lewis Hamilton under fire over Snapchat video of F1 press conference Hamilton has reason to feel confident heading to Austin having won three of the four US GPs since the track was opened in 2012. 152 - The USA is the country with the most drivers to have competed in F1 history (152) but only two of them have taken part in F1 in the last 23 years.
Manchester City has a decent squad, but they are not used with Pep's philosophy. City were good - they have top quality players. City reeled off 10 consecutive wins to start Guardiola's tenure in dominant fashion domestically and in Europe, but the table-toppers have only kept a single clean sheet in their eight Premier League games so far and are winless in three after Saturday's 1-1 draw with Everton.
Nevertheless, the English press will continue to portray Mourinho as a tactical genius, even though the teams he manages play cold, calculating football.

Roethlisberger underwent arthroscopic surgery on Monday to fix cartilage in his knee suffered in a miserable loss to Miami last weekend. Quarterback injuries are huge in fantasy football because they can have such a negative impact on that team's other skill players.
The good news is the Steelers have a bye in Week 8, so Roethlisberger has a decent shot to miss only one game. This week, in a win over the Browns, Mariota threw for 284 yards and scored three touchdowns. After tallying six catches in Week 1, his reception total decreased in each of the next four games. White, who already has a career high in rushing yards this year, is a versatile back who can confuse defenses.
There was little between the pair in the final set, but Kvitova's 32 unforced errors to Keys' 25 ultimately cost the Czech a semi-final place - and ended her eight match winning streak. I enjoy working hard and playing matches like these. The world number three converted her fifth break point to make the first gain and was 5-1 in front when a problem with the overhead stadium lights caused a momentary delay, having recovered from 15-40 to hold serve.
Morris (one yard on two carries) was noticeably slower through the hole and unable to shed tacklers and make them miss the way Elliott had all game. "The main thing is we're all looking at the same music and we all feel the same thing", Jones continued.
The Group G win was their third victory in as many Champions League matches, meaning the Foxes have had a ideal start to Europe's premier club competition. The Foxes could be punished by UEFA though with flares set off in the visiting section. On the pitch, though, it was Leicester who carried the greater threat, despite the visitors dominating possession.
Liverpool had the better chances but Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho were denied by fine David de Gea saves as the sides cancelled each other out for the first time in five years. I see many teams are losing points at the same time. "We started, from what I saw from the body language and what we wanted to do, OK, and immediately with their man-on-man defending we weren't courageous anymore".
