In the second NFL game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium the Carolina Panthers capitalized on 5 interceptions thrown by Jameis Winston to win in convincing fashion, 37-26. His offensive line continued its woes dating back to last week’s clash against the Saints, and the Bucs QB has been sacked 13 times as opposed to 14 in the team’s first three games.
The NL Wildcard Washington Nationals have battled all the way to a deciding fifth game of the NLDS against the two-straight National League champions Los Angeles Dodgers. One of the biggest contributors on a very dangerous team so far has been starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg.
After the Chiefs’ shocking home loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night, Kansas City’s Super Bowl odds took a giant dip, going from 7-2 to 6-1, according to theScore. It was their third loss in the last four primetime games at Arrowhead going back to last year’s losses to the Patriots (AFC Championship) and to the Chargers (Week 15). The loudest stadium in the world doesn’t look unconquerable anymore.
That defensive success didn’t show signs of sustainability on Sunday. In fact, it left the game to the secondary and that led to an implosion with the Bucs setting a franchise record in points scored in a 55-40 victory.
The Tampa Bay Rays and the Oakland Athletics will get the American League side of the 2019 MLB postseason underway in just two days as for a second consecutive year a team with 95+ wins will find itself out of contention just one game in. That’s the beauty of the Wildcard games.
Sadly, the time has come to face the ending moments of a very competitive 2019 season in Major League Baseball. But while much of the playoff picture has already been determined, a few crucial battles are yet to conclude.
If you thought that the Detroit Lions had looked good in their first two games but had gotten lucky, now you might have to rethink your stance.
Jack Flaherty has overcome the odds, pitching his team into the heights of the National League with a historic second half performance. He has been the most piece that helped the St Louis Cardinals place themselves in pole position for the NL Central crown.
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 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 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.
Both teams have opponents coming up that struggled mightily defending the passing game and it will be interesting to see if they’ll show off as they’re expected against the Giants and the Browns.
The Browns are a five-and-a-half-point favourite, and rightfully so. But the Titans stack up more than well against Cleveland and could be a team quickly rocketing in their playoff odds, and a very deserving Week 1 underdog pick.
A record of 5-11 seems the best bet, which likely puts them at either third or fourth place in the NFC East.
