Kyler Murray Wins Heisman, Miracle In Miami, Amari Cooper Lifts Cowboys In OT


Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray won the Heisman Trophy, the most coveted and prestigious award in college sports. Murray beat out fellow finalists Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins. Oklahoma now has 7 Heisman trophy winners tieing the record with Ohio State and Notre Dame for the most of any school. Murray will lead Oklahoma against Alabama in a playoff semifinal game on December 29th. After the season, Murray will forego an NFL career as he’s committed to Major League Baseball and was picked 9th overall in the 2018 draft by the Oakland Athletics.

A couple of crazy games in the NFL this weekend!

The most exciting game was the Miami Dolphins winning with no time left on the clock against the New England Patriots. Called the Miracle in Miami, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw to receiver Kenny Stills, then a lateral to DeVonte Parker who lateraled to Kenyan Drake. Drake ran for a 52-yard touchdown outmaneuvering the New England defense including tight end Rob Gronkowski (who played defense as a precaution against a possible Hail Mary). This is a must watch highlight! Dolphins 34, Patriots 33.

The Dallas Cowboys Amari Cooper tore up the field in an important NFC East win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cowboys traded their 2019 first round pick for the pro-bowl receiver back in October, and since then Cooper has energized the team with Sunday’s game as no exception. With 217 yards and three touchdowns (including the game-winner in overtime), Cooper has helped the Cowboys win their 5th straight game.
