Scott Wedgewood made 34 saves for Arizona, which dropped its fourth straight game.

Donte Whitner, Brian Hartline, Paul Kruger and Gary Barnidge were among the popular veterans dumped, and Brown and his staff didn’t handle those moves well. The signing of Kevin Zeitler was the best addition, while the team overpaid for players such as Jamie Collins. The decision not to re-sign Terrelle Pryor looks better now but looked bad then, given that the horrible free-agent alternative was Kenny Britt.

The best trade of the three options, Jeter said, was with the Yankees. Jeter did not note that Stanton vetoed possible deals to the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals.

Jeter, whose number is retired by the Yankees, scoffed at the suggestion that he wanted to help his former club, which is backed up by the fact that he and the team have had barely any relationship since he retired, except for some Monument Park ceremonies honoring him and some of his teammates.

But the Knicks allowed the Hawks to make it interesting.

“We were good for the first 50 (minutes),” Goligoski said. “Got good goaltending again. It was disappointing not to finish that out early and push it to overtime.”

Wedgewood and Crawford were locked in a scoreless duel when John Hayden made a nice pass to set up Wingels’ one-timer 7:36 into the third period. Wingels also scored a tying short-handed goal in the third during Chicago’s overtime win Friday night.panthers_029

Terry Glenn dead at 43 after car crash near Dallas

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a statement that Glenn “was a gentle and kindhearted young man.”

Licht and Koetter will be judged by the Glazer family, the owners, who have not kept a head coach for longer than three years since Jon Gruden’s departure in 2008. That’s four head coaches ago. The win totals for the last three coaches in their final seasons were four, four and six.

There was only time for a Miami kickoff return, but it would turn out to be a costly one for bettors. The Dolphins played the lateral game but kept moving backwards until Adarius Glanton recovered a fumble in the end zone for the Buccaneers to send the total over with zeroes on the clock. Top that, Cleveland!

The last time these teams met, the Giants ended Washington’s 2016-17 season. Needing a win to reach the postseason, Washington lost 19-10 to New York at FedExField on the final day of the season. New York has won five of its past seven games against the Redskins.

In effect, the Giants (2-8)be spoilers again, but they have their own injury issues. Wide receiver Sterling Shepard missed New York’s Sunday win against the Kansas City Chiefs with a migraine headache. Giants coach Ben McAdoo said Tuesday that Shepard was not feeling well and that the medical staff was evaluating him. Shepard leads the team with 475 receiving yards on 38 catches.

Yet last week, before the loss to the Saints, Koetter told a radio station that maybe there was still a “culture” of losing.

“I take a lot of solace knowing that slowly but surely we are moving the needle.”

The Eagles have the NFL’s best record at 8-1 and are considered the favorites to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.

While the Eagles were on their bye week before taking on the Cowboys next Sunday, they watched as the Saints, Rams and Vikings all served notice Sunday with impressive wins to join Philadelphia for NFC supremacy.

Woods, who had just three 100-yard receiving games over the previous four seasons, caught eight passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns. The big play was a 94-yard strike from Jared Goff, who threw for 355 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions.

“I can only imagine being in their position. It’s unbelievable,” the 24-year-old Marpet said of the Spyteks. “There’s a couple ways people can respond to that type of tragedy. For them to start a foundation to raise awareness is just incredible.”

It’s also something John Spytek felt was a necessity in the healing process for him and his family.

“When Evelyn passed, there were two things we could do: nothing or something,” he said. “We’re not do-nothing people. We do what feel like we have a responsibility. And there’s more that needs to be done because this is so important and affects a lot of people every year.

“I take a lot of solace knowing that slowly but surely we are moving the needle.”

Richard Sherman made his 99th consecutive start for the Seahawks in his team’s 22-10 win in Arizona on Thursday night. Unfortunately for Seattle’s ace cornerback, he found out before it was done he was going to fall short of 100.

For you simply to sit in front of the television set with someone from across the ideological divide, and for him to sit with you, means something it never did before, an argument and an agreement both, and a presumption of common ground.比尔蓝95

Wentz, Eagles roll over Cowboys 37-9 after losing kicker

The Cowboys have been outscored 47-0 in the second half the past two weeks following a three-game winning streak that seemed to have Dallas back on track following an NFC-best 13-3 record last season.

“The last time I talked to him, he just sounded like he was genuinely happy and in such a good place, and really, finally, totally overcoming those demons from the way he grew up. He was living a long and fulfilled life, and that makes it just such a horrible tragedy seeing what he overcame and then for his life to end too soon.”

Glenn was selected by the Patriots with the seventh overall draft pick in 1996 and helped New England reach the Super Bowl later that season. He had four seasons with over 1,000 receiving yards, two with the Patriots and two with the Cowboys.

Glenn was on the receiving end of Tom Brady’s first career touchdown pass.

Alex Len, Phoenix Suns (21.4): Len’s surprising surge in rebounding has him netting 11.6 RPG over his past five games. This bump in productivity is almost surely fueled by the absence of Tyson Chandler of late, but I do think Len is worth auditioning in deeper leagues to gauge the legitimacy of his recent double-double pattern.

Booker is a fine player that can fill it up in a hurry, but I’m not looking his way with plenty of other options on the board tonight. The length of this Bucks team allows them to cover space and shut down opposing fast breaks (they are the most efficient fast break defense in the league), something that has me lowering Booker’s ceiling tonight.bills-007

Coach Hue Jackson sold DeShone Kizer as someone who could be the team’s long-term answer and could help the offense be dynamic.

Parker, 35, spent time working on a rehabilitation assignment with the team’s G League affiliate, and mentioned early on during his recovery that he expected to return to the court in January. But when Parker returned for training camp with a clean bill of health in late September, he moved up the timeline, saying he would like to return sometime in November.

Alone in the frontcourt for an uncontested dunk, James tried to showboat and rocketed the ball off the back of the rim, a miss that stunned the three-time champion and the crowd of 20,000-plus fans. James then forced a long 3-pointer on Cleveland’s next possession and before long the Nets were even at 20-all when Zeller made his first 3 of the season.

Nets: C Trevor Booker (sprained left ankle) worked out before the game, but did not play. The eighth-year pro was injured Sunday against Golden State. … G Spencer Dinwiddie started his fourth straight game in place of injured G D’Angelo Russell (left knee surgery). He scored a career-high 25 points Friday against Utah. “Game by game, he’s getting better and more comfortable and more aggressive,” coach Kenny Atkinson said. . Brooklyn hasn’t beaten Cleveland in consecutive matchups since Jan. 4-March 28, 2014.

An 0-10 record and 14 interceptions later, Jackson is promising to keep Kizer on the field for the final six games to find out everything he can about the rookie QB. The roster around Kizer provides little help, but Kizer struggled against the Jaguars on Sunday. What Jackson has found out so far has not been overwhelmingly positive. — Pat McManamon

He had a fumble that cost the Giants their Week 5 game against the Chargers.

Sunday’s outing broke a four-game sack streak for Donald, but he spent enough time in the Vikings’ backfield that he can now register to vote there, and he has five sacks for the season. If he gets three more in the final six games, he’ll reach eight sacks for the fourth time in four NFL seasons. He deserves to be the game’s highest-paid defensive player, which was the source of his training camp holdout. Donald’s hope now is that he finishes the season healthy, and the goodwill he earned by reporting without a new deal helps him land the one he seeks next offseason.

Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines and Ivan Rodriguez were elected last year, when Hoffman drew 74 percent. Guerrero had 71.7 percent, followed by Martinez (58.6), Clemens (54.1), Bonds (53.8), Mussina (51.8) and Schilling (45).

“When you get scored on, the biggest thing you got to do is push back,” Julien said. “Right now, that’s not happening.”

Lindgren (3-4-1, 2.43, .924) or Antti Niemi, who has played in only one game in relief of Lindgren, could get the start. Or it could be Price in a return to the roster. Regardless, Montreal faces a tall order against Nashville, which has scored 37 goals in its last eight games.

There is a lot working against Eli Manning. He doesn’t have his top weapons, his offensive line is below average and the running game took several weeks to get going. But Manning also hasn’t done his part to carry the team when the Giants needed him most. That’s what is expected of him as the highest-paid and most accomplished player on the roster. He has 15 total touchdowns compared to 10 turnovers in 10 games. He hasn’t been bad, but he also hasn’t been good. He’s been closer to average, hence the mediocre grade. — Jordan Raanan

Seguin and Shore each had an assist on Spezza’s goal.

Shore had no goals in the first 19 games this season, but scored for the second straight to tie it 1-all at 18:22 of the second. Spezza, who also has scored in consecutive games after netting only one goal in the first 19, put in a rebound in the final minute of the period.

Spezza explained why their line worked so well.

“We needed to come out and have a great start at the beginning of the second half,” Oladipo said. “We did a good job of that.”

Whiteside and Josh Richardson each scored 15 and James Johnson added 10 for the Heat.

Dion Waiters was scoreless for Miami, missing all 10 of his shots. Miami’s starters were outscored by Indiana’s 90-44 — a huge disappointment on the heels of a road win in Washington two nights earlier.

The Warriors’ GSW Esports LLC, a subsidiary of the greater GSW Sports Ventures LLC, was granted a spot in the North American League of Legends Championship Series in October. That corporation has several owners who also own stakes in Team Liquid and Cloud9, which were also accepted into the league, violating Riot’s multi-team ownership rules.

“No team owner or team manager or affiliate of an owner may own or control, directly or indirectly, or have a direct (e.g., ownership) or indirect (e.g., a contractual arrangement) financial interest, or be an employee or contractor of, more than one League of Legends team in a professional esports league,” the North American LCS rulebook states. “Any buyback provision, right of first purchase, or similar interest in a team shall be treated as a controlling interest in such team for the purposes of enforcing ownership restrictions.”

Much of the Strip remains the same as it ever was.

There are the glitzy signs, even for outfits like CVS and Denny’s. There are Ninja Turtles and Elvis impersonators posing for pictures. There are slot machines, blackjack tables and buffets around every corner. This was the happy, carefree tourist attraction Vegas that was given a pro team.

But for so many members of this community, life will never be the same.

Physical reminders of last Sunday’s shooting are abundant around town—often packaged as uplifting messages of the city’s strength, but still present enough that the grief and gloom is rarely far from mind.

A day after being no-hit by Dodgers left-hander Alex Wood for 5? innings, the Astros scored 13 runs on 14 hits against Kershaw and a parade of relievers. Since the start of the 2012 season — including the playoffs — the Dodgers were 49-1 when Kershaw pitched with at least a four-run lead. Now they’re 49-2.

Vladimir Brodziansky (58.2 percent inside the arc, 30th overall in block rate, per KenPom.com) is a dynamic 6-11 forward who anchors the sleeper of this conference.

It seems like we’ve been waiting for Hertl to break out since a hot start during his rookie year, but this season could be the one where he finally gets rolling. Hertl is averaging 2.5 shots per game, which is back at the level of his 21-goal season in 2014-15 and up from 2.0 last season. Hertl is also fourth on the Sharks in power-play ice time.

After failing to get a shot with the Calgary Flames, Baertschi has found a home in Vancouver. He has made progress over the past two seasons, increasing his goal totals from 15 in 2015-16 to 18 last year. Now he’s playing a career-high 16:38 per game and playing alongside budding young center Bo Horvat.

Warriors great Al Attles released from the hospital, much improved

Al Attles’ son says the Golden State Warriors great has been released from the hospital and is much improved.

Suh later said he was “protecting myself” after Mallett “came at me and tried to attack me.”

But Wilson has adapted to the fact that, more so than ever, he is playing in a one-dimensional offense. A quarterback’s ability to adjust on the fly is his most valuable asset.

The quarterback-turned-receiver has been gradually phased out of the Washington offense after signing a one-year, $6 million in the offseason. He didn’t even see the field until the third offensive series of the game for Washington. He hauled in just two catches for 14 yards.

It’s becoming safe to assume that he isn’t going to live up to the contract he received in the offseason and it appears likely that he won’t be with the team in 2018.

The biggest negative of the game for Philadelphia is easily the loss of Jason Peters, a nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle who suffered a knee injury in the third quarter. An air cast was immediately applied and he was taken off the field on a cart.

Good luck with the Wild Card race, Washington and Dallas, because that looks like it’s a wrap.

2. Baltimore’s victory was tainted by the loss of Joe Flacco, who was concussed on a brutal blow from linebacker Kiko Alonso. Flacco had given himself up by sliding at the end of a 9-yard scramble when Alonso lowered his shoulder and delivered a vicious shot that split the quarterback’s helmet and bloodied his ear. Alonso should expect to hear from the league office regarding a possible suspension.blues-001

Nick Folk had the worst ‘Thursday Night Football’ a kicker could have

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had kicking issues for a while now. They cut Roberto Aguayo prior to the start of the season after trading up to draft him in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft. Nick Folk was his successor, but he hasn’t been successful either.

The Bucs are probably going to be looking for a new kicker soon. Head coach Dirk Koetter said after the game that he’d be discussing the kicking situation with the general manager, but the team wasn’t going to make any “rash” decisions, even while it brings in other kickers for tryouts:

EJ Manuel was ineffective in relief, completing just 55 percent of his passes and throwing just a single touchdown as Oakland went 0-2 in the games in which he appeared. While that was better than last year’s playoff combination of Matt McGloin and Connor Cook, Carr’s role in the offense remains paramount to the Raiders’ postseason success.

What this means for the Raiders: Oakland could have used Week 6’s matchup against a 1-4 Chargers team as an opportunity to give Carr an extra week of rest, but it’s clear the club sees Sunday’s game as a must-win. It’s easy to see why. The Raiders are already three games behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West. They’re 1.5 games behind the Broncos and already in poor tiebreaker condition in a race that could define 2017’s AFC Wild Card spots.

Los Angeles isn’t much of a threat, but another loss would dig a hole even a returning Carr would struggle to pull his team from.

What this means for Derek Carr: Carr’s broken back always sounded much worse than it was, but this is an impressive recovery from the young quarterback. He started his fourth season as a pro strong, throwing for 492 yards and five touchdowns in his first two games before Washington badgered him into a two-interception performance in an upset loss. He’ll need to regain that early season form to bring Oakland back to .500.
