Djokovic And Federer Out Of Open Finals, Bills Best Bulls, Dolphins Huge Win Over Pats, 49ers Over Sloppy Cowboys, Broncos Beat Colts In Sloppy Win


Two huge upsets in the tennis world this weekend. We were all expecting to see Novak Djokovic vs. Roger Federer in the U.S. Open final, but in a day that shocked the fans, both favorites lost in the semi’s on Saturday. We will now see first time finalists Kei Nishikori (ranked #10) and Marin Cilic (#14) in the championship on Monday. This will be the first time in nearly 10 years that neither Federer, Djokovic or Nadal (who couldn’t play the Open because of injury) will not be in the finals match of a major tournament.  Maybe this is the sign of a new generation of superstars. 


It was an exciting weekend of NFL football with some surprising wins. In overtime the Buffalo Bills knocked off the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls simply had too many turnovers and the Bills are serious about ending their 14 year playoff draught. Bills 23, Bulls 20.

Ryan TannehillThe Miami Dolphins had a huge win over the New England Patriots on Sunday. The Dolphins were missing a lot of key guys and still came out strong. The Dolphins put pressure on Patriots’ QB Tom Brady throughout the game. The Dolphins’ QB Ryan Tannehill threw for 2 touchdowns and RB Knowshon Moreno rushed for 134 yards and a big 4th quarter TD.  Dolphins 33, Patriots 20.

Tony RomoIn another big game, the San Francisco 49ers rolled over the sloppy play of the Dallas Cowboys. Everyone counted the 49ers out for the season as they’ve had injuries and suspensions, but QB Colin Kaepernick looked solid and capitalized on Dallas’ QB Tony Romo’s turnovers. 49ers 28, Cowboys 17.

In the anticipated Sunday night showdown between the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Maning and the Broncos gave us a good show. Manning threw three touchdown passes in the first half to tight end Julius Thomas. The second half wasn’t so easy for the Broncos. They are clearly missing Wes Welker (who is missing 4 games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy). Colts’ QB Andrew Luck struggled in the first half but came back strong in the second to give the Broncos a scare. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough as the Broncos won 31-24.
