United has endured a disappointing start to the Premier League season and sits eighth with 15 points from a possible 30 - that's two less than the club had at the same stage under David Moyes in the 2013-2014 season.

India resisted taking the second new ball, and it paid off. Umesh Yadav got a lucky break as he accepted a return catch from Root in the 81st over. Not the most active in the round of football that was going on, he brought up a fourth Test century off the third ball of the day bowled by Mohammad Shami.
The rushing statistics were ugly, there is no denying that, but the rushing lanes were clogged by extra defenders.

The slide was triggered by Steyn's dismissal of Warner for 97 - the veteran South African bowler's last act of the series. "They lost 5-0", he said.

The veteran has just one top-5 finish this season, a career low, and has gone two straight years without making the Chase. Several people were hit by a auto in a parking lot at Martinsville Speedway just after 5:30 Sunday evening, according to state police.
Hello and Welcome to our Live Coverage of Day 2 of the first Test at Rajkot between India and England . "Make it hard for (Ashwin) him to bowl one length", he explained. "I might be completely wrong". "I was so disgusted with the shot but having seen the slow-mo replay it does look out".

Yeah you probably did too, for some reason. They'd be East champs at 9-0. Someone look that up. I didn't think the Huskers were good, but, I didn't think they were bad enough to lose to Ohio State 62-3. Penn State is 10th, allowing an opponents' hitting percentage of.151. Yet with the toughest part of the schedule behind Wisconsin, coach Paul Chryst isn't anxious about the Badgers taking anything for granted the rest of the season.
Madrid has won big in recent matches, such as 6-1 and 4-1 routs in the Spanish league, but it has also struggled badly in a series of draws and close victories against weaker opponents, including a lackluster 3-3 tie at winless Legia Warsaw in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Black Cats boss Moyes has been under pressure following their poor start to the season, but Anichebe inspired them to a first victory of the campaign at Dean Court. In the absence of the injured Vito Mannone, Pickford is second only to Tom Heaton in saves this season (though truth be told, that's more of a knock on Sunderland's defense than anything), while Defoe's five league goals put him tied for fifth in the scoring race.
To be exact, they are just one and a half games behind the NFC South Division-leading Atlanta Falcons. "Every team circles us on the calendar", outside linebacker Eli Harold said.

"He's mean-mugging like he's always doing and whatever", Ryan said. Bills coach Rex Ryan was furious with the missed call and he exchanged words with Sherman after the play. Most damaging for the Bills was the play clock not being properly reset as Carpenter lined up for a second field goal attempt, from 48 yards, and Buffalo being called for ...
Some guys came in and played hurt, and that was a heck of dogfight. "I think that's the key is that you always look towards what's next - what's the next challenge?" If you really hate ties, this is a decent option. In 2015, the defense ranked 12th on third down , allowing opponents to convert 37.7 percent of the time. That's the thing we have to do to become a better defense and myself too.
