The Chicago Cubs’ Kris Bryant and the Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout walked away with the Most Valuable Player awards for the National and American Leagues respectively. Bryant is building quite the resume. Last year he earned rookie of the year honors becoming only the 4th player in history to earn rookie of the year then MVP in back to back seasons. Trout had an amazing season as well, but his team didn’t fare so well, which made his award all the more surprising. The last player to earn an MVP on a losing team was when Alex Rodriguez played for the Texas Rangers in 2003.
For most of the game, the Carolina Panthers dominated the New Orleans Saints in Thursday night football. The Panthers Defense sacked The Saints QB Drew Brees three times keeping him out of the end zone. In the 4th quarter, however, the tide started to change. The Panthers suffered some injuries and started to unravel, while the Saints began their comeback. Thanks to a big gain of yardage from Panther’s QB Cam Newton, Carolina was able to hold on to a 3 point lead and win the game. Panthers 23, Saints 20.
