His aggressive driving style earned him the nickname " The Intimidator ". Edwards was in command as the race wound down, but then bedlam broke out after the sixth caution field bunched the field with 10 laps to go. If he held on to it through the end of the race he would have made up for the disappointing end to the 2011 season when he tied with Tony Stewart , but lost the tiebreaker because Stewart had more wins.
Verlander received 14-of-30 first-place votes , two second-place votes and five third-place votes for 132 points.

There were a number of injuries for both teams. If Matthews and Ertz are out, the Eagles offense will be in some big trouble against the Seahawks. Treggs played a little defense when asked which quarterback had the stronger arm. Prosise was regularly on the field and matched against a linebacker, a matchup he usually won with seven catches for 87 yards against New England. And one other thing: While the Eagles are starting to build a serious home-field advantage at the Linc, going 4-0 ...
They started on their own 8-yard line and marched effortlessly up the field on a combination of Prescott throws, Elliott runs and one big pass interference call on Ravens rookie cornerback Tavon Young. Prescott was skittish early on in his first National Football League game in which Tony Romo was actively backing him up, with a pair of early three-and-outs and some errant throws and huge hits absorbed.
Prescott is the man, and the in the second half, the Cowboys' offense took over the game and wore down the Ravens' defense. Like before, Dallas capped off the 88-yard drive in 13 plays with another touchdown toss to Bryant to give the Cowboys a 24-10 lead with 11:37 left in the game.

Sexton was adamant that he had prevented the try from being scored and replays suggested that he had a point but the TMO said the ball was "clearly grounded". 6. Ireland wasted two penalty lineouts, first from a cheap knock-on and then after Van der Flier forced an offload that simply was not on. "If you want to beat the All Blacks , you've got to score more than nine points".
In Minnesota's 30-24 win at U.S. Bank Stadium, the Cardinals faced fourth-and-19 at their own 4-yard line with 1:12 left in the game when Carson Palmer threw an incompletion that apparently had sealed a Vikings win. Making plays with his talented arm and adding a few well-timed plays with his legs, Winston is well on his way to becoming a franchise quarterback for a Tampa franchise that has made progress in their steady rebuild this season.
The Green Bay Packers are 6-1 straight up and 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven games against Washington . Maybe not literally, but perhaps in spirit. With his new team, the running back will certainly serve as the replacement for Don Jackson , who recently suffered a season-ending injury. Green Bay lost its top two running backs earlier when Eddie Lacy and James Starks went down.
Former two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi, who was watching from ringside, agreed with the judges and scored the fight for Ward. That would be potentially a much tougher fight for Ward than his match against Kovalev , because Stevenson is fast and has huge power.
After a slow start to the season, Ronaldo has really turned his form around in recent weeks, starting with the hat-trick against Alaves at the end of last month.

Djokovic had sought his fifth straight title at the event and was looking to equal Roger Federer's six World Tour Finals wins. "This is one of the hardest matches I've played indoors". Nevertheless, he did not sound downhearted. Djokovic, who declined to say whether he would continue his three-year partnership with coach Boris Becker, said of his 2016: "Many highlights, many things to reflect on and be proud of.
But, somehow, some way, they keep making just enough plays, they keep pulling out miracles, and they keep winning. Lions: Detroit hosts Minnesota (6-4) in a possibly pivotal game in the NFC North race. Prater's point-after attempt sailed wide. - The Lions forced only seven turnovers in their first nine games - second fewest in the league - but were opportunistic against Jacksonville.
And when the Longhorns led 21-10, with the ball and seemingly unstoppable running back D'Onta Foreman rolling, Kansas was shaping a familiar narrative: a competitive home game but another loss. Once senior kicker Matt Wyman drilled his second crunch-time field goal of the final minutes, every soul wearing crimson and blue felt the density of not just a nine-game losing streak this season, but also a 19-game Big 12 losing streak dating back to 2014, vaporize.
Therein lies the difference between perception and reality to a rookie in regard to his leader. Kim: It seems like last season was the aberration with Keith Butler leading the defense and the trends of giving up a ton of points, not being able to stop the run and constantly being about of position.
Meanwhile, two-time champion Peter Senior - whose victories came 23 years apart - announced his retirement from the sport after completing just five holes of his second round, the 57-year-old struggling with a hip problem. "I hope to take this into a couple of weeks from now, improve on areas that need improvement and sustain what was solid", Spieth said Sunday evening.
Place-kickers missed six in Week 10. Weather certainly didn't play a factor indoors in Detroit, where Lions kicker Matt Prater and Jason Myers of Jaguars each failed to split the uprights on extra points. The wind may not have been entirely to blame, though, since Barth later made a 40-yard field goal and Gould hit from 46. Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka then broke that record when he missed an extra point attempt.
Bank Stadium today in what has turned in to a must-win game for both squads as they gear up for the stretch run to close out the regular season. "The mindset is not going to change". "He had just had two long drives", coach Bruce Arians said. "Andre needs to play too".

It sounds insane, but the Big 12's playoff hopes could rest on the perception of a game that occurred in early September. Fournette will likely be resting up for an National Football League game the next day by then. The Sooners are coming off a blowout win over Baylor, where they scored 45 points. The college football odds for the game have the Sooners favored to pick up the victory on the road.
The Seahawks' offensive line is an unheralded group that the team isn't paying much money as a group due to salary cap limitations. Russell Wilson connected with Doug Baldwin for three touchdown passes versus the Patriots while the former also accounted for three scores (two passing, one rushing) in the last meeting with the Eagles - a 24-14 Seahawks win on December 7, 2014.
Stamkos suffered a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee - an MRI revealed - during Tuesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings. Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said the team is evaluating different medical options, leaving the recovery time in flux.
However, that's arguably not the most depressing statistic, and certainly not the most remarkable one to emerge from the game. "It really doesn't mean anything". They will win because Ben Roethlisberger is starting against this struggling Browns team. Browns coach Hue Jackson said it's possible Kessler may need extra time to recover from his second concussion since October 23.
I don't want to blame any player because I say always we win as a team and we lose as a team, but when you concede a goal from a set-piece for me, it is a mistake. "I have all the players available", said Conte. Middlesbrough haven't been one of the best teams in the EPL this season - their 15th place standing attests to that - but they have been a tricky team to face all the same.
Obama didn't speak with reporters before departing for Peru on Air Force One. With reference to his upcoming meetings in Europe and Latin America with key world leaders Obama cited the reality of America's need to trade for a healthy economy, maintained that the global Iran nuclear-for-sanctions deal was working and underlined the need for America to respect its commitment to the Paris climate accord.
The win snapped a nine-game skid, a 19-game losing streak in Big 12 play and was their first over Texas since 1938. It's especially unacceptable when you consider that they blew a 21-10 lead in the middle of the fourth quarter; that seems due for a 3-1 meme .
But in a video published by TMZ, McGregor called Mayweather "afraid" and said he was demanding $100m for a showdown between the two during an appearance in a NY nightclub on Tuesday.

Now, Mourinho faces another fight to get Rooney mentally right, at a time when the striker had got his place back in both United's and England's team after a spell of poor form.
