Sunday’s narrow victory over the Broncos raises, rather than solves, many questions the Chicago Bears have about their offence going forward.
And in the midst of all the talk Eli will continue to be the ultimate professional. The perfect teammate. The way he always has been. And in an NFL world where the aforementioned characteristics are becoming increasingly scarce, we say thank you Eli. Thank you for the memories, the victories, and the sweet sweet taste of Super Bowl success.
What a rollercoaster of a week it’s been for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The team fell to 0-2 after being defeated by the Seattle Seahawks at home, losing starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the process. Mason Rudolph, meanwhile, proved to a solid replacement for the two-time Super Bowl MVP.
The NFL loves shiny new toys and when an image of one of Minshew's pregame outfits began to circulate, the former Washington State QB accumulated a type of cult following. But would Minshew's fashion sense translate to the field against the Houston Texans?
Ultimately not many would turn down the chance to lead the Red Sox’s Baseball Operations. They have a huge market and are willing to spend and have some of the best young talent in the league on their roster who won it all less than a year ago. Big teams are often able to rebuild whilst still winning, and that is what the new GM will hope to achieve.
When describing his legendary signature pitch, Rivera said "it was just from god". I'm sure every Yankee fan who watched him pitch will be in eternal agreement.
For a team synonymous with the name Aaron Rodgers, after two weeks it is the Packers defence that has driven them to two vital division wins as Mike Pettine’s unit stepped up big in the fourth quarter to stymie a Vikings comeback.
A loss on Monday, and Cleveland’s new gods will be facing a herculean task just to remain relevant by the halfway point of the season.
The Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers meet this Sunday in a showdown between 1-0 teams that, based on the squads’ performances in Week 1, could prove to be among the games that will decide the 2019 NFC North champion. The Wisconsin-based team gained an advantage in the divisional games, beating the Chicago Bears, 10-7, in the opening Thursday.
The New York Giants are licking their wounds after a week one thrashing at the hands of divisional the Dallas Cowboys, things look bleak for Eli Manning and co. However, there are a few positives to take away from the week one loss, most notably the performance of the best running back in the NFL - Saquon Barkley.
Rendon currently has the 9th best OPS in a season by a third baseman since 1902, everyone above him either current or future Hall of Famers (and A-Rod). He has had a historic 2019, just not quite at the level of Yelich or Bellinger.
Christian Yelich is out for the remainder of the 2019 season after fracturing his knee. The injury occured when Yelich fouled the ball into his knee whilst playing against his former team, the Miami Marlins. This freak incident has cut short one of the best individual offensive seasons in baseball history and has deprived us of an exciting National League MVP race.
Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado isn’t a name many expected to see in trade talks this winter, but The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal speculated that the Rockies could look to move their franchise star this offseason after a nightmare 2019.
The Arizona Diamondbacks announced that they were going to be sellers just a few days before the trade deadline. And to the mass, they were as they traded their ace Zack Greinke to the Astros for four prospects.
Trey Mancini has disappeared into the 100-loss ether with the Baltimore Orioles. Several galaxies away from contention and without an attention-attracting superstar since Manny Machado was traded last July, the Orioles are stuck in the heavy mud of a lengthy rebuild. Mancini, meanwhile, continues to perform.
