    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — When it comes to Ravens’ rivals, there’s no doubt it’s the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fight to win the division. But when it comes to the battles to reach the Super Bowl, the Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs have become top challengers and now familiar foes.

    (CBSDFW.COM) — Both the Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks escaped Week 2 with an exciting win. The Cowboys came back from 12 points down in the fourth quarter to overtake the Atlanta Falcons on a last-second field goal. The Seahawks kept Cam Newton out of the end zone on the game’s last play to preserve a win over the New England Patriots. “Both teams are coming out of really exciting games,” as CBS San Francisco sports director Dennis O’Donnell describes it. “Seattle won and remained undefeated because they stopped Cam Newton at the one-yard line.

    2018’s Spider-Man is headed to the PlayStation 5, but buying it won’t be straightforward. Sony has confirmed to Kotaku that Spider-Man Remastered — the updated PS5 version — won’t be sold as a standalone title or offered as a free upgrade for existing Spider-Man owners. Instead, the only way to buy it will be as part of the $69.99 Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition bundle, which couples the PS5 version of the upcoming spinoff with Spider-Man Remastered. (Miles Morales typically costs $49.99 on its own.) The issue is, as with several other cross-generational games, there are actually two versions of Spider-Man: the regular PS4 version that’s been around since 2018 and a new edition of the game called Spider-Man Remastered,...
    (KPIX) — The San Francisco 49ers came out of New York with a 31-13 win against the Jets last Sunday. After three first-half touchdown drives, they led 21-3 and never looked back. But the win against one of the NFL’s worst teams exacted a big cost. The already banged-up 49ers suffered multiple key injuries that will surely have larger ramifications for the season. Defensive end Nick Bosa, last year’s NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, and tackle Solomon Thomas left the game in the first quarter with knee injuries. (It has since been confirmed that both suffered torn ACLs that will end their seasons.) Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a high ankle sprain that kept him out after halftime. Running back...

    The Miami Heat have had an unmatched run in this playoff season. They are the only team who have managed to get a confirmed ticket to the Eastern Conference Finals. Very few had expected them to finish the job in just 5 games against the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks.

His viewpoints differ from most people and have really questioned where they currently stand. Was it too easy for the Miami Heat? One would probably consider their victory against the Bucks, one of the biggest upsets this season. This...
    BERRY CREEK — When the Bear Fire crept closer than any fire ever had to Valerie Andrews’ home on the unpaved Encina Grande Road, about two miles from the Oroville Quincy Highway that winds through Berry Creek, she went to the safest place she could think: the bottom of the lake. There was no swimming required — the water line recedes enough during the dry summer months to leave a bare moonscape in its place. Which is how Andrews found herself sitting in a fold-up chair outside her white Ford pickup truck Thursday, her three small dogs wandering around her, feeling relatively protected even as she watched smoke rise from the burning forest line about half a mile away from...

    MSNBC's Joe Scarborough went on a lengthy tirade Friday against the conservative-leaning Wall Street Journal editorial board for characterizing Bob Woodward's new book as a "non-revelation." The Morning Joe host focused on a column published on Thursday which chastised Democrats for using the recordings of the president's conversations with the Watergate sleuth to say President Trump is "responsible" for the deaths of the nearly 200,000 people who have died from COVID-19, "which is contemptible even by today’s political standards." Scarborough, who is a former Republican congressman, began by asking if the editorial board felt the president was "responsible" for a fraction of the deaths. "Maybe he only killed 4,000 out of 190,000? You think that’s probably pretty safe to say...

    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...

    The Atlantic Editor-in-Chief Jeffrey Goldberg used an interview with CNN’s Brian Stelter to defend the magazine’s reporting on President Donald Trump’s disparagement of America’s servicemen. Appearing on Reliable Sources, Goldberg asserted his confidence in The Atlantic’s multiple anonymous sources who provided the accounts of Trump’s disrespectful attitude toward fallen soldiers. He also pointed out that the article’s details are in-line with Trump’s public comments, remarking that “according to the rules of ordinary politics,” Trump’s presidential ambitions should’ve ended the day he insulted John McCain for being captured as a prisoner of war. As Goldberg predicted that more national security personnel will also eventually speak out against Trump, Stelter pressed him on why he granted anonymity to the sources...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After a two-week delay, the University of Minnesota will re-open campus dormitories Sept. 9 in Duluth, and Sept. 15 in the Twin Cities. But the reopening is under such strict guidelines that even university president Joan Gabel admits it won’t be much fun. During the first ten days, Twin Cities students can only leave their dorm rooms to go to classes, to eat, to go to jobs or to go outdoors. They can’t go to other dorms, nearby businesses or off-campus residences. On Sept. 25, those restrictions will ease, but for two weeks on there will be a 9 p.m. curfew in dorms.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The violent protests and riots in Wisconsin and around the country have raised questions about guns, specifically open-carry laws. People openly carrying firearms into volatile protests, is it vigilantism or citizens defending themselves? It’s a national debate sparked by events in Kenosha, where 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse — carrying an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle — is accused of fatally shooting two protesters and is charged with criminal homicide. Gun rights advocate Kim Stolfer calls it self-defense and says Rittenhouse, like others, was exercising his right to open carry a firearm in a time of unrest. (Photo Credit: KDKA) “Citizens are rising up because government is abdicating their responsibility to protect citizens,” Stolfer of Firearms Owners Against Crime said. What...

    Conservative CNN commentator Matt Lewis gushed over former Vice President Joe Biden’s Pittsburgh speech, calling it “brilliant” and “pitch-perfect,” and predicting if Biden continues to perform similarly, “he’s going to be the next president.” On Tuesday morning’s edition of CNN’s New Day, co-anchor Alisyn Camerota asked Lewis what he made of Biden’s speech, in which he condemned violence and lambasted Trump.

    CNN host Don Lemon said he feels burdened to be a prime-time host on television discussing racism in the United States. Lemon said he feels it's incumbent upon him as a network host to share experiences on race relations during an Interview podcast with Mediaite Editor-in-Chief Aidan McLaughlin.

Do you feel in your personal life, in professional life, and in your coverage a sort of burden, at least this year, in holding that position?" McLaughlin asked. "Yeah, of course I...
