The Eagles looked sloppy at times. But they also look 2-0. And they can run the ball, Thursday night to the tune of 259 yards.
The Vikings have lost eight fumbles in two games. That’s a big reason why they’re 0-2.
Aaron Rodgers says his Achilles surgery went “great.” Zach Wilson says he wants to be just like his “big bro” Aaron Rodgers when he grows up. Good luck with that. Let’s see how Wilson plays Sunday against the Cowboys.
Gee, there’s nothing like a public clash between an NFL player and a team-employed social media reporter, right? A hot mic prior to a Bills news conference captured reporter Maddy Glab saying about Buffalo WR Stefon Diggs, “He’ll look in my face and say f— you, That’s how he treats everybody.” After that remark caught fire on social media, Diggs responded in a series of posts, denying he had ever said anything like that to Glab and calling her words “hurtful” and “insulting.” Glab has apologized for her comments and now says that Diggs treats the media with “lots of respect.” I’m guessing Diggs will still be on the Bills’ payroll long after Glab is.

Ole Miss says Rollins was never dismissed from the team and remains on scholarship.
Now why did Colorado State football coach Jay Norvell do that? Why did he get on his radio show and go after Colorado Coach Deion Sanders for his habit of wearing hats and sunglasses during news conferences? Said Norvell, “When I talk to grown-ups, I take my hat and my glasses off. That’s what my mother taught me.” Here’s what my mother taught me. Don’t piss off Coach Prime, who says “They done messed around and made it personal.” Take the Buffs on Saturday and lay the points—whatever the spread.
Dustin Johnson says his defection to The Murderous Saudi Tour likely cost him a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team. He’s probably right. And I’m fine with that.
The Rangers completed a four-game series sweep of the Blue Jays to extend Texas’ overall win streak to six and move them within a half-game of the AL West leading Astros.
