DeVante Parker is a great example for young players to follow: never lose belief in yourself. Nothing comes easy in the NFL. After four tough years, he turned his career around and earns a huge reward.

Swing for the fences with Darius Slayton and A.J. Brown this Sunday.

Quietly, the Bucs have been a top 3 D/ST in two of the past three weeks.

Most yards after the catch per reception this season (min: 50 catches) 1. Robert Woods: 7.14 2. George Kittle: 6.97 3. Cooper Kupp: 6.19 4. Chris Godwin: 6.09 5. Darren Waller: 5.85

"It is the only game where every competitor is willing to lay down his life for every spectator watching." - Tom Rinaldi sharing powerful perspective on what makes the Army-Navy game so special.

Raheem Mostert can become the first 49ers RB since Frank Gore in 2011 with a rushing TD in four straight games.

The 49ers, Bills and Patriots can each clinch a playoff berth with a win today. The Packers and Seahawks can clinch a playoff berth with a win and some help today.


The potential #1  pick in the NFL draft was suspended for accepting a loan - that he paid back in full - from a family friend. The potential #1  pick in the NBA draft was ruled ineligible because his coach helped his family move while in HS. Another banner day for the NCAA.

Today marks the only day in 2019 in which we have NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL games all on the same day. 26 games in total. It doesn’t get any better than this.

15-yard penalty for playing football.

Bartolo Colon made his MLB debut the day Turner Field opened. He'll now pitch at the new Braves park. The dude outlasted a stadium.


October is the only month in which we have NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL games. Plus college football continues. Just a glorious month of sports ahead.

Happy 51st birthday to Barry Sanders, who could still make any defender miss in the open field today. Absolute legend.

This is the final week without an NFL or college football game until after the Super Bowl. A win for all of us.
