Joe Flacco had issues with his deep ball accuracy and made a few bad decisions. Let's take a look back at what took place at M&T Bank Stadium in the week ten version of the Cleveland Browns, the good, bad and ugly. And playing three different quarterbacks in a Thursday Night Football game isn't the way to do that. There was a belief that Cody Kessler , Josh McCown and Kevin Hogan would all see action.
We know, from Kavanagh's MMA Hour interview, that he said , "You did it. Two-weight world champion", to McGregor . "If you say he's the Floyd Mayweather of the MMA, I'm trying to find out have you ever made $300million in one night?"

After Michigan lost to Iowa this past weekend, it created a scenario where the Big Ten East was up for grabs. Ohio State could wind up ranked No. How would that hold up if chalk wins out?

The pair's 226-run partnership put the hosts in the driving seat in Visakhapatnam, though Jimmy Anderson's display on his return from a shoulder injury offered some cause for English optimism. England failed to add to their early strikes though, with a run-out looking their most likely route to a third wicket as the personality clash between the highly-charged Kohli and more leisurely Pujara led to some confused calling between the wickets.

The thing is, he played a joke on his mom. I'm coming home to Atlanta .' She was super happy. "This city's been great".

McGregor traded verbal jabs this week with Floyd Mayweather Jr., who fired the first shot by saying it's "total disrespect" to compare McGregor's accomplishments in UFC to his accomplishments in boxing. "I've earned, I mean, who owns the company now?" To the sport of boxing I gave years and years of hard work. That's something I didn't know. Now that McGregor is more popular and accomplished than ever, however, could we finally see the bout take place? "Much respect to Floyd".
And he proved it last Sunday by becoming the first to hold two UFC belts simultaneously.
