Monday night:

    As the dust cleared Monday night, into Tuesday morning, the Giants were bestowed a rare gift by most of their blue-tinted constituency: perspective. Most Giants fans believed the Steelers were the better team. Most have bought in, however reluctantly, to the notion of an extended rebuild. Most figured Monday to be a lost cause going in. So when the final score was 26-16 coming out, there was little rage, little fury, little anger directed anywhere. They’d looked respectable. They hadn’t gotten throttled. They’d made Ben Roethlisberger work for his dinner, and though there were a few agitating mistakes that could’ve made a difference in the final score, it was a stand-up effort. (Also — and this cannot be discounted —...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Due to some series ending faster than out West, the Eastern Conference has had a bit of a head start on its final series. In the coming days, the West will be able to make up some ground. That’s because the NBA announced most of the remaining schedule for the Eastern Conference finals between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. After Game 3 on Saturday night, the teams will have to wait around until Wednesday for Game 4. That long gap is due to ESPN — the network which is broadcasting this series — airing Monday Night Football on Monday, and due to the Western Conference finals between the Lakers and Nuggets taking place on Tuesday night....
    As documented as Sportskeeda, Ronda Rousey took to Twitter recently and commented on a status posted by WWE’s official account. The company shared her match with Natalya from 2018, and “The Baddest Woman on the Planet” responded by saying it’s one of her favorites so far. The match took place on an episode of Monday Night Raw and ended with Rousey picking up the victory. The bout marked their first time facing off on television. However, they were familiar with each other beforehand as Natalya trained Rousey to become a sports entertainer. Rousey also stated that she’s looking forward to a “rematch someday,” fueling more speculation that her long-awaited in-ring return could be on the cards. Rousey hasn’t appeared on...
    There have been prickly issues surrounding Saquon Barkley from the moment the Giants took him with the No. 2 pick on the evening of April 26, 2018. The one that has the most legs is the simplest one: Why would Dave Gettleman have used a franchise-quarterback-sized pick, in a draft flush with potential franchise QBs, on a running back? And even as Barkley became an immediate sensation — 2,028 yards from scrimmage as a rookie, back-to-back thousand-yard rushing seasons in his first two years, despite an ankle injury last year — and even as many of those franchise QBs have struggled to live up to their billing, there has been this gnawing concern: What if the Giants — in full-blown,...

Carolina Panthers (0-1) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-1) (Yellow): Adam Amin, Mark Schlereth Detroit Lions (0-1) at Green Bay Packers (1-0) (Orange): Chris Myers, Greg Jennings, Brock Huard Minnesota Vikings (0-1) at Indianapolis Colts (0-1) (Purple): Tim Brando, Robert Smith Washington Football Team (1-0) at Arizona Cardinals (1-0) (4:05, Light Blue): Dick Stockton, Brady Quinn Fox has the single header this week with seven games across the two time slots.

    Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season might not have the sexiest slate of games, but there are a couple of cross-conference and divisional matchups worth tuning in for regardless of who you might have on your fantasy football team. The highlight matchup of Week 2 is Seahawks vs. Patriots on Sunday night; not only is it a famous Super Bowl rematch from a few years ago, but it also combines two of the most fun quarterbacks in the league in Russell Wilson and Cam Newton. There are also chances for teams that disappointed last year to prove they’re legitimate this season. The Raiders, for instance, could gain credibility if they improve to 2-0 with an upset of the Saints on...
    Saints All-Pro wide receiver Michael Thomas is expected to miss multiple games with a high ankle sprain, which will rob the Raiders’ historic Monday Night Football game next week of some of its star power. Not only are the Raiders hosting their first home game in $1.9 billion Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, but the game also marks the 50th anniversary of the very first Monday Night Football game on ABC-TV. Thomas was injured in the Saints’ season-opening win over Tampa Bay but didn’t believe he’d miss the Raiders game — until a follow-up evaluation Tuesday revealed his ankle was in worse shape than he believed, according to ESPN. Without Thomas, one of the NFL’s most dangerous...
    ESPN’s Maria Taylor is feeling the love after an eventful few days. On Tuesday, the sports reporter received a beautiful bouquet of flowers from her colleagues during ESPN’s “NBA Countdown”, hours after she shut down Chicago radio host Dan McNeil for tweeting a crude comment about her “Monday Night Football” ensemble. “The people who fuel me,” Taylor began on Instagram. “Are the people who support me. The only people who can effect me are the people who love me. I’m SO thankful for my NBA Countdown family. Once again you’ve lifted me up over a hurdle. And made me feel like a Queen. Let’s go crush the Finals.” During Monday night’s broadcast of the New York Giants’ home opener...

The game peaked at 13.1 million viewers around 9:00 p.m. to 9:15 p.m....
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Steelers Cam Heyward says he is “surprised” and Ben Roethlisberger says it’s the choice of Alejandro Villanueva to cover up Antwon Rose’s name on the back of his helmet Monday night with the name of a military veteran instead. Heyward says at first he was unaware Villanueava changed the name on the back of his helmet. But now says he was “surprised” his teammate decided to cover up Rose’s name. Roethlisberger said, “I did not know about Al’s choice for the back of his helmet. That’s his choice and that’s the amazing thing about the country we live in. It is what it is.” During the Steelers’ game against the Giants on Monday night, Villanueva veered off...

    The ratings for ESPN’s Monday Night Football are in, and they are not going to make the folks in Bristol very happy at all. Against the backdrop of large-scale social justice demonstrations that included Black Lives Matter t-shirts, a giant social justice banner, an entire team standing for the “black national anthem,” and at least 20 players kneeling in protest during the actual national anthem, the Steelers-Giants MNF contest saw a 27% drop from last year.

NFL television ratings for Week 1 of the season have been down at nearly every turn. © Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports Not many people watched Stephen Gostkowski miss four kicks before connecting on a decisive field goal to beat the Broncos Monday night.

    Monday night’s loss to the Tennessee Titans stings even more for the Broncos after the injury update on cornerback AJ Bouye.  The start of AJ Bouye’s career with the Denver Broncos didn’t go as planned. Not only did he watch his team suffer a last-second loss to the Tennessee Titans during a Monday Night Football showdown, but he also suffered a rough injury too. Per NFL insiders Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo, Bouye actually suffered a dislocated shoulder during the Week 1 defeat and his status moving forward is a bit up in the air. #Broncos CB A.J.

    Now, Dan McNeil has an actual job dilemma to think about. McNeil was let go by Entercom on Tuesday after The Score radio host sent out a crude tweet about ESPN’s Maria Taylor during the network’s “Monday Night Football” coverage. “NFL sideline reporter or a host for the AVN (Adult Video News) annual awards presentation?” McNeil tweeted before deleting around a half hour later. The longtime Chicago host was out of a job less than 24 hours later. “For each one of us our words have power,” Rachel Williamson, regional president for Entercom, told Deadspin in a statement.  “For our brands and on-air personalities that is amplified and brings increased responsibility how we choose to use our voices....

    The bail for people arrested in relation to the Lancaster, Pennsylvania, rioting Sunday evening is set at $1,000,000, according to the Lancaster Bureau of Police. Rioting began Sunday evening in Lancaster after police fatally shot Ricardo Munoz while responding to a domestic incident. Body camera footage released by the department shows Munoz bursting out of a home with a knife and chasing an officer before being shot. Several buildings sustained damage and rioters threw “water bottles, glass bottles, rocks, bricks, gallon jugs liquid and parts of plastic road barricades at Officers,” police said. Officers deployed tear gas and several arrests were made both Sunday and Monday in connection with the rioting, with bail set at $1,000,000. Some people arrested have not...
    As documented by WrestlingNews.co, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio revealed that Vince McMahon doesn’t view Andrade and Angel Garza as main event superstars in WWE. Zelina Vega, the duo’s manager, parted ways with the superstars on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. She is set to feud with Asuka for the brand’s Women’s Championship, which could mean that Andrade and Garza become afterthoughts moving forward. According to Meltzer, McMahon hasn’t been high on the superstars for quite some time. The journalist stated that Paul Heyman was a fan of both performers, but now that he doesn’t have any creative input regarding storylines, they could fall down the card. “I was kind of told…Aleister Black and Andrade were...
    Maria Taylor hit back at radio host Dan McNeil on Tuesday morning, not long after the Chicago commentator offered a crude comparison about the ESPN reporter’s “Monday Night Football” ensemble.

    It appears that WWE might be adding a new twist to the ongoing feud between Seth Rollins and Rey Mysterio, as this week’s Monday Night Raw seemed to point to a potential onscreen relationship between Mysterio’s daughter, Aalyah, and Rollins’ former ally Murphy. As recapped by WrestlingNews.co, WWE continued teasing the potential breakup of Rollins and Murphy’s alliance ahead of the former’s Steel Cage Match against Dominik Mysterio. At that time, the “Monday Night Messiah” berated his protege and asked him not to interfere in the contest. Murphy, however, would disregard the orders and assist Rollins in his win over the second-generation superstar. After Rollins defeated Dominik, he exited the steel cage to attack Murphy, officially ending their partnership as...
    Reports suggest that Monday Night Raw superstar Mickie James might have suffered an injury on this week’s edition of the red brand’s show, as suggested by the strange ending to her title match against Raw Women’s Champion Asuka. As explained by WrestlingNews.co, the match between James and Asuka was “pretty good” and featured them trading holds while on the mat. At that point, the referee called for the bell and declared Asuka the winner due to how James apparently wasn’t able to continue. The veteran grappler was described as looking “confused” by the decision, as the match was supposed to end with the champion retaining with the Asuka Lock. Amid all the confusion, Zelina Vega made her way to the...

    Over 30 players from the Denver Broncos and Tennessee Titans, knelt in protest during the playing of the national anthem prior to their Monday Night Football tilt. 18 Denver Broncos and 13 Tennessee Titans took a knee and/or raised fists in protest. According to the Denver Post: Linebacker Bradley Chubb, wideout Jerry Jeudy, running back Melvin Gordon and safeties Justin Simmons and Kareem Jackson were among the Broncos who knelt, while defensive linemen Jurrell Casey and DeMarcus Walker stood with a fist raised.

Bouye, Davontae Harris, Dre’Mont Jones, Shelby Harris, Lloyd Cushenberry and Calvin Anderson. The Broncos released a...
    ESPN’s John Elway graphic on Monday Night Football was less than ideal. The graphics team at ESPN needs to rethink some things after disgracing legendary quarterback John Elway on Monday Night Football.
    When the Steelers travel to the Giants to open up a “Monday Night Football” doubleheader in the penultimate game of 2020 NFL Week 1 (7:10 p.m. ET, ESPN), they will try to match the Ravens at 1-0 in first place in the AFC North. After both Dallas and Philadelphia lost, a win for New York would put it in a first-place NFC East tie with Washington. Joe Judge will make his debut at home as Giants’ head coach, looking for a turnaround. Mike Tomlin, whose team missed the playoffs trying to navigate through losing quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to an early elbow injury, is hoping to lead a big rebound. There are higher expectations for Daniel Jones in Year 2 to make...

    Daily fantasy football players get a fun treat Monday night: There are two NFL games instead of the usual one, and that means that DFS sites are offering a two-game slate that covers both Monday Night Football games. The Giants and Steelers play in the early contest, followed by the Broncos and Titans in the nightcap. In addition to our DraftKings Showdown lineups, linked below, we’ve put together a lineup covering both games if you prefer to play in that style of GPP tournament. A two-game slate always will limit your opportunities to game stack or avoid playing someone against your D/ST choice.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Millions of birds are expected to take to the skies over Maryland Monday night as part of their annual migration, the Maryland Department of the Environment said.

    Broncos vs. Titans finish off Week 1 in the second game of a Monday Night Football doubleheader. Courtland Sutton is questionable, which is worrisome for season-long leagues, but in DraftKings Showdown contests, we can take advantage of that with our DFS lineup picks.  Our lineup goes in on the Denver passing attack and grabs both parts of Tennessee’s offense, too. We didn’t touch the Broncos’ running game, which could backfire, but it just seems a bit too unpredictable right now. And if you’re reading this shortly before kickoff and Sutton is active, you could pivot our captain choice to Sutton himself, as the questionable tag normally greatly depresses ownership in Showdown contests.

    Democratic Senate candidate Cal Cunningham said on Monday night that he would be "hesitant" to get a coronavirus vaccine if it is approved by the end of the year, raising concerns about potential political interference with the approval process.  "Yes, I would be hesitant, but I'm going to ask a lot of questions.

    About 20 Giants knelt while the Steelers stood in unison and held an anti-racism banner during the playing of the national anthem before their “Monday Night Football” matchup. Giants coach Joe Judge stood between co-captains Jabrill Peppers and Dalvin Tomlinson and put one hand on the shoulder of both kneeling players. The banner read “Steelers Against Racism” and was long enough to be held by about 25 players, some of whom raised fists. Under New Jersey’s COVID-19 restrictions, there were no fans in MetLife Stadium to react, but Giants co-owner John Mara admitted earlier this summer he knew a segment of the fan base would be outraged by kneeling during the national anthem. Mara’s preference is for players to stand...
    College football fans tuning into “Monday Night Football” will hear a familiar pair calling the Steelers-Giants game. Kirk Herbstreit and Chris Fowler, ABC’s leading college football broadcast team, will make their way to the pros on Monday to call the first “MNF” game of the season. ESPN, which owns “MNF” broadcast rights and is a part of the ABC family of networks, announced the move in mid-August. “Chris and Kirk are commentators at the top of their game and have thrilled college football fans for many years,” Connor Schell, ESPN’s executive vice president of content, said in a statement. “We are looking to add new opportunities to their expansive portfolios and are confident that NFL fans will be just...
    The Steelers opted not to sign or draft a replacement for Ben Roethlisberger this past offseason, banking on their 38-year-old quarterback to be healthy and effective over the next couple of years. After an injury-riddled 2019, though, Roethlisberger appears a risky investment. Pittsburgh hopes a matchup with the bottom-dwelling Giants on Monday night gives Roethlisberger an opportunity to ease his way into the regular season. Because there wasn’t preseason action before this campaign, the veteran hasn’t faced a live defense since Sept. 15 of last year. New York, meanwhile, is playing its first game under coach Joe Judge and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. The development of second-year quarterback Daniel Jones is in their hands, and it will be interesting...

    (CBSNewYork)- The New York Giants kick off their 2020 season in prime time Monday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. While there is plenty of interest in what will happen on the field, there is also a focus from the team and its players on continuing to push forward the fight for social justice and racial equality. On Sunday, we saw players throughout the league wear various messages on the back of their helmets. The Giants will do the same.

    ESPN is changing its tune for “Monday Night Football.” Fans flipping on the TV to catch the 2020 debut of “Monday Night Football” will have a familiar yet unfamiliar voice to greet them on ESPN, with Hank Williams Jr. officially off ESPN’s Monday night broadcast. MORE: Breaking down ‘Monday Night Football’s’ new booth for 2020 The change — which ESPN says was made to reflect the lack of (or limited) fans in stands this season — came as a bit of a surprise, but it’s not the first time the network has waved goodbye to the country music singer. It’s the latest in a myriad of changes for ESPN’s Monday night offerings, which also includes a brand-new three-man booth for the 2020 season. Here’s...
    Courtland Sutton is a top-25 fantasy WR when healthy. The problem to close out Week 1 is that Sutton is questionable for Monday Night Football against the Titans with a sprained AC joint that he sustained Thursday. Playing in the latter half of Monday’s doubleheader, the Broncos’ top WR leaves fantasy football owners with few options if his shoulder injury keeps him out. Denver head coach Vic Fangio told reporters that if Sutton can do 10 jumping jacks pregame Monday, the receiver will be active. We’re not sure if he was joking. We’ll have updates below in the meantime and right up until the official inactive report is released at around 8:50 p.m. ET. Forinjury updates on Golden Tate, click...
    Golden Tate has long been a productive player in fantasy football. He’s not the PPR monster he once was, nor is he a sure-fire WR3, but for those in a pinch at the flex spot, Tate has always proven to be a reliable target. That’s why some are undoubtedly concerned about his status in the lead-up to Monday Night Football clash with the Steelers. Tate has been dealing with a hamstring injury that kept him limited in practice over the course of the past week. It’s hard to know whether he will be active, so fantasy football owners and avid DFS players will be checking up frequently on his status before the Giants-Steelers game begins. We’ll have updates below in the meantime...
    Ben Roethlisberger’s return from elbow surgery will provide a significant boost for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who open their season on Monday night against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. The Steelers went 8-8 last year with poor quarterback play. Pittsburgh was in the playoff hunt in December only because it ranked fifth in scoring defense by allowing 18.9 points per game. The Steelers should win at least 10 games this year, and they should start by winning this one. But the point spread is now inflated. When Week 1 lines opened in May, the Steelers were 3½-point favorites. The line move to six probably has a lot to do with positive reports about Roethlisberger’s arm strength. The bettors are...
    Steelers vs. Giants begins Week’s 1 Monday Night Football doubleheader on ESPN. Ben Roethlisberger is back and healthy for Pittsburgh, while New York QB Daniel Jones begins his second season against a strong defense. Our DraftKings Showdown tournament picks hope to take advantage of that gap in experience as we look for the right DFS studs and values to put together a winning lineup. Early in the season, our inclination has been to create pretty balanced lineups. Monday’s first game is the first Showdown lineup of the season where we’re fading one of the QBs — and we’re further embracing that fade by using our first D/ST of the season, too.

    A hard-hitting AFC matchup closes out Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season. In the second game of the 2020 “Monday Night Football” debut, it’s a matchup of hard-hitting defenses with the Titans traveling to Denver, Colo., to take on the Broncos in, what should be, a sneaky-good matchup.  In a pretty small sample size, Lock had a promising showing as a rookie, helping the Broncos to a 4-1 record while he was under center, throwing seven touchdowns to three interceptions in those starts. Lock has more help this year, as Denver head man John Elway drafted wide receivers with the Broncos’ first two picks in the 2020 NFL Draft: Alabama product Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler out of Penn...

    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It’s going to look like an Alfred Hitchcock movie tonight as Pittsburgh’s skies will be covered in birds. According to the Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program, around 18,000 birds are expected to pass over the city. This is expected to start around 7:00 p.m. Nearly 900 million birds are expected to be a part of this transcontinental mass movement.

Pittsburgh is trying to rebound following a disappointing 8-8 season and a second straight year where it watched the playoffs from home.

    By Mark McIntyre CBS2 Meteorologist/Weather Producer NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — As expected, there were some more clouds across the area Sunday afternoon, but it was dry for most of the day. A cold front moving through the region will bring just the slightest chance for showers, but we’re not expecting a soggy evening.

Skies will feature a bit of cloud cover Monday morning, but another cold front will move through clearing out both the clouds and the humidity in the afternoon.

    In a recent interview with TalkSport, R Truth revealed that Brock Lesnar wants to work with him. According to the current 24/7 Champion, Lesnar has been a fan of his work since a segment they shared on Monday Night Raw earlier this year. According to Truth, Paul Heyman told him that they wanted the superstar to try and make “The Beast Incarnate” laugh on live television. Even though some people were sceptical of his chances at success, there was a bet in place regarding the matter. Truth was given free rein during the promo, and he successfully made Lesnar laugh. Truth went on to say that Lesnar was still laughing when they got backstage, and that’s when they had a...
    The NFL is a sport made to be a spectacle on national broadcast television. That will be taken to a whole new level of importance in 2020 with COVID-19 limiting fan attendance games in stadiums across the league this season. The way one watches game won’t change — antenna, cable, satellite, streaming — but three of the major networks that airs the games have changes in the booth and the studio. While NBC rolls with the same “Sunday Night Football” talent, ESPN is breaking in a new main “Monday Night Football” trio. Fox will remain the same for “Thursday Night Football” and the simulcasts on NFL Network, but is undergoing some changes for Sunday afternoon coverage. CBS also is mixing up its...
    Will Courtland Sutton’s injured shoulder hurt the Denver Broncos in Week 1?Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton is listed as questionable for Week 1’s game on Monday Night Football with a sprained AC joint. Sutton suffered the injury in practice this week. Though the prognosis is significantly better than the season-ending injury outside linebacker Von Miller suffered, Sutton won’t be 100 percent vs. the Tennessee Titans. What is the impact here? The Fantasy Footballers looked at this a bit in trying to figure out what to do if you have Sutton in your starting lineup as a low-end WR2 or a prime performer in the flex. If he’s your WR2, you need to start someone else over him, but if...

    ESPN will televise any NFL players protesting the national anthem beginning on Monday — and will also feature the singing of the "black national anthem," according to reports. What are the details? Monday Night Football's Monday debut will likely be chock-full of protesters and will have two songs. According to Front Office Sports, ESPN — which typically shows the honor guard and the singing of the national anthem — will have a decidedly different format this season. The network also reportedly has plans to televise the singing of the "black national anthem," a song called "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing." ESPN Executive Vice President of Event and Studio Production Stephanie Druley told reporters, "Our policy is...

Ron DeSantis said state colleges could expect a decision “very soon,” again emphasizing how he wants “all businesses” to get back up and running. DeSantis talked about how he no longer sees much reason to keep them closed as long as customers are safe.

    As documented by Ringside News, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio noted that WWE superstar Ivar’s injury could be worse than initially presumed. The Monday Night Raw star got hurt on the most recent episode of the red brand’s weekly show. He was involved in an Eight-Man Tag Team match in which he teamed with Erik, Richochet and Apollo Crews to take on Hurt Business. After taking a dive to the outside of the ring, Ivar landed awkwardly and his legs buckled from under him. He gestured to the backstage area afterward, indicating that he needed urgent medical attention. According to Meltzer, there is talk of the superstar potentially needing surgery. If that happens, the Viking Raiders member won’t...

    New York Giants: 3 keys to beating the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night By: Alexander Wilson September 10, 2020 ShareShareTweetThe New York Giants have a tough matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers in week one of the 2020 regular season. With no fans in the stands and a bevy of youngsters featuring on the starting team, this season will be interesting, to say the least. The Steelers are an incredibly tough team, gaining back Ben Roethlisberger and adding Minkah Fitzpatrick to their defense last season. The Giants will have a tough time overcoming them, but new head coach Joe Judge will have an opportunity to start the season strong, even if it means competing...
    What do you do when all your rowdy friends don’t show up for Monday Night Football? You cancel the song that says all your rowdy friends are here for Monday night, that’s what you do. According to John Ourand of Sports Business Daily, ESPN decided that singing about a large gathering of friends wasn’t a pandemic-friendly theme. Instead, the broadcast will proceed with a version of Little Richard’s Rip it Up, with instrumental provided by a band called Butcher Brown. This won’t be the first time Williams Jr. has been dropped by the primetime broadcast. In 2011, ESPN pulled the song after Williams Jr. said that President Obama golfing with then-Speaker of the House John Boehner, was akin to Hitler golfing...

    ESPN has, for the second time, retired its Monday Night Football (MNF) theme song, replacing Hank Williams’ Jr. performing “All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night” with a Little Richard tune, Sports Business Daily reported. However, this time the cancellation has nothing to do with the singer’s politics, like it did previously. Since 1989, Williams Jr.’s song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight,” with re-worked lyrics to reference the football broadcast rather than a party, has been used as the MNF theme, save for a period of a few years between 2011-2017. However, back in 2011, the performer made comments that compared then-president Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler, and described then-vice president Joe Biden as “the...

The community hasn’t determined whether or not the tune will return after this season, when stadiums are hopefully crammed once more. Within the meantime, “Monday Night time Soccer” will as a substitute be kicked off by a model of Little Richard’s tune “Rip It Up,” with new instrumentals from a band known as Butcher Brown. The...

    As daunting as the 8-2 beatdown they took from the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 1 Monday night was, the Islanders aren’t letting one loss in the Eastern Conference finals rattle them. This is the first time since the playoffs began in August that the Islanders are trailing in a series, but by focusing on the fact that a win in Game 2 Wednesday night would even the series 1-1, the Islanders are hoping they can make Monday’s debacle a distant memory. “Personally, I liked our attitude after the game last night,” Mathew Barzal said on a Zoom call Tuesday afternoon. “We knew it wasn’t acceptable, but at the same time, we know it’s a seven-game series and it’s the...

But this time, it’s about a lack of fans in stadiums rather than anything Williams Jr. himself said.

    According to Ringside News, WWE chairman Vince McMahon reportedly didn’t read the script for this week’s Monday Night Raw until right before the episode was set to go live. The report stated that the performers were pitched ideas from the writers before the chairman signed off. However, it took until 6.30 PM to get three matches confirmed for the program. This is also the reason why the promotion didn’t promote many matches prior to the show airing on the USA Network. While some bouts were confirmed later on in the day, the company was tight-lipped about plans for the most part. It also meant that the superstars didn’t have enough time to offer feedback in regard to their storylines and...

    The San Francisco Giants take pride in their balanced offensive success and Monday’s 4-2 series-clinching win over the Arizona Diamondbacks provided one of the best examples of why the lineup has turned the club into a legitimate playoff contender. A four-run sixth-inning rally against D’backs right-hander Zac Gallen, one of the best pitchers in the National League, started when the No. 7 hitter, Pablo Sandoval, and No. 9 hitter, Mauricio Dubón, grinded through tough plate appearances to earn walks. Their No. 8 hitter, Joey Bart, also drilled a single into the left center field gap as the bottom of the order set the table for the top to do damage. By the time the Giants took the lead on a...
