The two oldest active players in the NFL facing off to win NFC South supremacy for their respective teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New Orleans Saints.And then Brady goes and spoils it all by throwing zero touchdowns and three interceptions. The last time the 43-year old recorded that many interceptions in a game was back in 2011, when he threw 4-4 in a game against the Buffalo Bills.To find another game like Sunday night's, where Brady threw three interceptions but zero touchdowns, we have to go all the way back to 2006, when he threw four interceptions against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Seeing Lewis Hamilton leading the way is nothing new if you are a Formula One fan. He has been regularly winning races almost on a fortnightly basis since 2014 and has been a leading driver since his first day on the job in 2007 as a young rookie at McLaren. Despite his unquestionable talent that saw him break Michael Schumacher's 14-year record of 91 Formula One race victories at the Portuguese Grand Prix on Sunday, he has had many critics over the years who have unfairly accused him of taking his eye off the race track to pursue life's riches away from it.

    In July, the Los Angeles Lakers signed veteran free agent J.R. Smith as a replacement for Avery Bradley. As the NBA headed into the Orlando bubble, Bradley backed out, citing personal reasons. After being out of a contract for almost two years, Smith finally got his chance. In the bubble, Smith reminded the basketball world what a fun-loving guy he was. So when such a jolly person says that in their 16-year career, there has been just one player that they haven’t liked, it has to be serious. “Aw man, they mad at me bro. I’m gone. Just got the text.

    Michael Chiesa recalls wanting fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov. In 2012, The Ultimate Fighter tried something new for season 15 as they decided to go live. It was the first and only iteration of that variant of TUF and showcased throughout were the lightweights. Most notably, the season’s winner, Michael Chiesa. Since then, Chiesa has gone on to enjoy a wealth of success as he holds a 10-4 record within the promotion. He rides a three-fight winning streak after making his jump up the 170-pound welterweight division. As a lightweight, Chiesa was likely on a crash course with one of the sport’s all-time best and the current champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov. In fact, Chiesa actually had the opportunity to make the fight happen on short notice in 2016. After Tony Ferguson was forced out of one of his five scheduled meetings with Nurmagomedov due to a lung issue, Nurmagomedov needed a new...

    With LeBron James on his third team and in his 10th NBA Finals, here’s a look back at some individual matchups he dominated along the way. There’s no question that LeBron James will finish as a top three all-time player. But as the old adage goes, “In order to be the best, you have to beat the best.” James is no stranger to this as year after year, he has had to defeat players who dared to challenge his supremacy. Expect this matchup to remain one-sided for the foreseeable future now that James will be a consistent title contender with the Los Angeles Lakers while DeRozan struggles to keep the San Antonio Spurs afloat in the stacked Western Conference, or moves on to a new home. 1.

    Aaron Boone usually plays things safe for the Yankees. His decision to start Deivi Garcia in Game 2 of the ALDS is the biggest gamble of his career. Starting Gerrit Cole in the first game of the ALDS was a no-brainer for Yankees manager Aaron Boone. Things get a lot more interesting for New York in Game 2. Choosing Deivi Garcia to follow Cole in the team’s starting rotation represents the biggest risk of Boone’s managerial career. That doesn’t mean it’s the wrong call. There are plenty of reasons to believe that Garcia is the right pitcher to insert into this big spot. His poise during his brief time in the majors has been unbelievable. Garcia isn’t the sort of rookie who’s going to be intimidated by the pressure of pitching playoff baseball. Garcia is still a starting pitcher that put up mediocre numbers during the regular season. Guys who...
    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots offense was not very good in Kansas City on Monday night. Most of that had to do with some suspect quarterback play from Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham. But there were a few bright spots on an otherwise dismal offensive evening, and no spot was brighter than running back Damien Harris. The second-year back made his 2020 debut after starting the season on IR with a broken finger, and Bill Belichick threw him right into the belly of the beast, giving Harris the start against the defending Super Bowl champs. The 2019 third-round pick out of Alabama did not disappoint, rushing for 100 yards on 17 carries in New England’s 26-10 loss. The only disappointing aspect of his big game was that it ended in a loss for the Patriots. “There’s a lot of emotions coming out of that game....

    After Janna Ireland photographed her first home for what would become a longterm project documenting the architecture of Paul R. Williams, she got a surprise. As it turned out, the midcentury modern in View Park with details influenced by Chinese architecture wasn’t actually designed by Williams. “It was designed by someone working in his office for people who were friends of Williams,” she explains by phone from her home in Sherman Oaks. Even so, the photos she shot there were significant. “In a lot of ways, it set the tone for the rest of the project.” “Regarding Paul R. Williams: A Photographer’s View,” published by Angel City Press, isn’t a typical review of an architect’s work. Instead, it’s Ireland’s impression of the structures designed by the trailblazing L.A. architect. In it, she captures the curve of staircases and the corners of interiors and exteriors that might otherwise go unnoticed. It’s...

    Twenty years ago, Rupert Everett — now aged 61 — was a hot movie star, after landing leading roles opposite Madonna and Julia Roberts.  But one day Hollywood simply stopped calling, he reveals in the first extract from his caustic new memoir — and his life changed dramatically.... Several years ago, the success of my last Hollywood incarnation was still a flickering ember on the horizon, not quite dead. I thought it could be blown back into a flame with a judicious move and a prevailing wind. So I turned my attention to screenwriting, my dream being to create work for myself as an actor since no one else seemed to be very keen to do so.  Oscar Wilde in exile seemed to be the obvious choice.

    When Luchi Gonzalez joined FC Dallas as a coach in its youth system in 2012, he was given several months to observe the operation before taking over its U-18 squad that August. One of the players he noticed while making his way around the grounds was a kid who hadn’t yet turned 14 and could accurately be described as “underdeveloped … wasn’t physically a specimen … small.” And still Weston McKennie left an impression. “He was just crafty. He was shifty. He was just confident. He played with a smile,” said Gonzalez, now the head coach of the FC Dallas in Major League Soccer. “He just enjoyed the game. He enjoyed competing whether it was 11 versus 11 or small-sided or the technical. He was a social presence, just so respectable and loved the game. I remember seeing that from that kid.” MORE: Sign up for ESPN+ to stream...
    U.S. Attorney General William Barr had a lot to say when he spoke at Hillsdale College in Michigan on Wednesday, September 16, and he was highly critical of some of his own federal prosecutors in the U.S. Department of Justice — even comparing them to headhunters. Tensions between Barr and some U.S. attorneys have been evident in 2020, especially with the criminal case of veteran GOP operative and Trump ally Roger Stone. And in Michigan, Barr wasn’t shy about attacking others in the DOJ, describing their activities as “headhunting” and slamming them as a “permanent bureaucracy.” Barr, one of President Donald’s unwavering loyalists in Washington, D.C., told the crowd, “The notion that line prosecutors should make the final decisions at the Department of Justice is completely crazy. Under the law, all prosecutorial power is vested in the attorney general. And these people are agents of the attorney general. As I...

    James Harden has easily been one of the best offensive players in the last decade. Many would argue he is one of the greatest offensive players of all time, but there are a lot of doubters. Despite his historic regular-season averages, Harden is yet to overcome the demons of the NBA Playoffs from all his years in the league. Harden has regularly failed in the NBA Playoffs, be it to the Golden State Warriors or even the Portland Trailblazers. It seems their playoff campaign will end in the second round for a second consecutive year. They are down 3-1 to the LA Lakers, after dropping game four of the series. Game four was marked by a historically bad shooting performance for James Harden. Harden made just two field goals on his 11 shot attempts. This was the 8th time in his playoff career that Harden has shot under 20% from...

After a trade wasn’t completed, he was waived by the Miami Dolphins and he cleared waivers, Josh Rosen became available to any team that wanted to take a flier on him. According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will sign Rosen to their practice squad. Garafolo added that Rosen spoke to teams with a spot on their active roster, but with guaranteed money in his pocket he chose the fit in Tampa.

    The WBC, Ring Magazine, and the Lineal Heavyweight Champion, Tyson Fury, regards Deontay Wilder as the biggest challenge in the Heavyweight Division.

On being asked how important it was for him to clean out the division in a recent interview, Tyson said, “To be honest, no matter who you beat, what you beat, there’s always going to be somebody else coming up. Look how many title defenses Wladimir Klitschko had, but there’s always people coming behind you. “The only thing I’m concentrating on right now is fighting Deontay Wilder for a third time and being victorious in that fight because I never look past any opponent, and especially not one as dangerous as Deontay Wilder. “He needs the utmost respect because he...

    Getty Images; Getty Images Argentina's president has intervened in the ongoing saga of Lionel Messi's departure from FC Barcelona, imploring the star to return to his homeland and finish his career with boyhood club, Newell's Old Boys. "You are in our hearts and we have never seen you play in our country," President Alberto Fernandez said during an interview on Argentinian news channel C5N. "Give us the pleasure of ending your career with Newell's Old Boys, your club." Messi came through Newell's Old Boys' academy as a small child, before leaving to join Barcelona's La Masia youth academy at the age of 13. It seems unlikely that Messi would return to Argentina with several years of his career left, and Newell's would almost certainly be unable to afford his wages.

    Zion Williamson is a freak of nature. In the few games he played for the New Orleans Pelicans, we could see glimpses of a future superstar in him. However, he missed most of the regular season games and couldn’t bring his A-game to the table during NBA Bubble games. As a result, NOLA missed the playoffs yet again, making them 1-4 in the last 5 seasons. Zion is obviously a special player but he might not be able to reach his full potential in the league. The rookie’s 285-pound weight is believed to be the cause. Should the New Orleans Pelicans be worried about Zion’s weight? Despite having the easiest schedule in the NBA Bubble, Pelicans couldn’t seal a spot in the playoffs. In fact, they were one of the worst teams out there, finishing with a mere 2-6 record. Williamson only played 5 of the 8 possible games...

    One of the key figures in the impeachment of Donald Trump has described being forced into retirement by 'a campaign of bullying, intimidation and retaliation', and likened the current government of the United States to the dictatorship of the Soviet Union. Lt Colonel Alexander Vindman, 45, wrote a scathing op ed in The Washington Post on Saturday - the first day of his retirement. 'At no point in my career or life have I felt our nation's values under greater threat and in more peril than at this moment,' said the Ukrainian-born lieutenant colonel.  'Our national government during the past few years has been more reminiscent of the authoritarian regime my family fled more than 40 years ago than the country I have devoted my life to serving.'  Alexander Vindman testified against Trump in November 2019 during the impeachment trial Trump, pictured Friday, was said to be more...

    Vinnie Jones is speaking out about the “disappointing” role he had working on the third installment in the “X-Men” franchise, “Last Stand.” The actor and former soccer player was brought on to portray the character Juggernaut, a wildly popular villain in Marvel comics who is often depicted as having particular ties to the super-powered team’s leader, Professor Xavier. However, his portrayal of the character, like the rest of the movie, has been criticized by comic book fans over the years and now Jones is hoping to set the record straight. Speaking to ComicBookMovie, Jones explained that he was brought onto the project by director Matthew Vaughn.

On Monday night, the Mets announced that Lowrie, who only had eight plate appearances last season due to injury, was placed on the 10-day injured list because of left-knee discomfort. The plan, for now, is that the 36-year-old will visit a doctor later this week where the team is expected to gain a little more intel.

Sessions had sought to recapture the Senate seat he held for 20 years before becoming President Donald Trump’s attorney general. In his stead, Alabama Republicans nominated Tommy Tuberville, a former college football coach. The former prosecutor, senator, and attorney general went out the same way he entered the national stage more than three decades ago: in a blaze of racism.  Racism defined Sessions’ entire career, but racism is not what ended it. In fact, it was Trump’s patronage that put Sessions and the white grievance he long embodied at the center of American politics. Sessions’ political career is over now...

    Alexander Hamilton was a revolutionary and military leader, a Founding Father, first secretary of the treasury of the United States, and subject of the smash-hit Broadway musical Hamilton. But the show, which paints him as an opponent of slavery, is now facing calls for it to be 'canceled' for glossing over his own involvement in the trade. While Hamilton saw the evils of slavery first-hand growing up in the West Indies and advocated powerfully against slavery later in life, he often side-lined these views in order to win the approval of wealthy benefactors and advance his career. His two main benefactors were George Washington and Philip Schuyler, both of whom owned slaves. Hamilton helped the Schuyler family buy slaves, and helped run companies which profited from slave labor.  Even when he did denounce slavery in 1796, having been forced out of politics, some argue he was cynically using it as a...

But when a New York Times expose hit newsstands in February 2019, the music came to an abrupt stop for Ryan Adams, 45, one of the most prolific singer songwriters of his generation.  In a searing #MeToo expose, the indie rock star was accused by seven women of dangling career opportunities in return for sex. The alleged victims ranged from an underage singer to his ex-wife Mandy Moore. If they spurned his advances, the women said Adams would use his influence to stifle their ambitions and subject them to harassment and abusive texts.  'Music was a point of control for him,' said Moore, who split from the Grammy-nominated performer in 2016, claiming he was psychologically abusive.  Adams disputed the accuracy of the...

    Many fans might be aware of the story of how former Lakers GM Jerry West convinced then New Jersey Nets coach John Calipari to refrain from signing Kobe Bryant as the #8 pick in the 1996 NBA Draft. Kobe chose to wear the #8 jersey for the first ten years of his career, before switching to #24. Would it have been a perfect match if Kobe was selected as the eight pick by the Nets, 24 years ago? Jerry West undoubtedly pulled off one of the best business moves in his executive career by pushing Calipari out of the picture and trading Vlade Divac to obtain a high-school graduate in 1996. It turned out to be a golden switch as the young teenage star pledged his loyalty to the purple and gold throughout his 20-year career. How Kobe Bryant astonished Jerry West with his raw talent Jerry West knew all...

    The NFL, being a contact sport, requires players to compete with shoulder pads and helmets as they are prone to knocks whilst on the field. Opposition defenses target wide receivers and quarterbacks as they are the main offensive weapons. As a result, injuries are second nature to some of these players. At times they play through the pain barrier or they accept fate and take time away from the sport. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been in the NFL for 15 seasons and started in 12 of those seasons. He too has had his fair share of injuries over his time before ‘Packer Nation’. Here, we take a look at some of the times the Super Bowl XLV MVP has gone down over his career.
