Cowboys Embarrassing Loss To Niners, Chiefs Destroy Steelers In Roethlisberger’s Last Game, LeBron Apologizes, Warriors Minority Owner Insensitive To Uyghurs

FOOTBALL

Wild card weekend is over and the divisional rounds of the Playoffs are set.

Two memorable games stood out this weekend. The Dallas Cowboys lost to the SF 49ers in a sloppy game where the only thing anyone will remember is the embarrassing last play. Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was driving the ball well into Niners territory, but with no timeouts left, he ran the ball up the middle then tried to spike the ball to stop the clock. The only issue is the umpire needed to touch the ball before the play could begin, and by the time that happened, the clock had expired and the Niners won 23-17. Check it out.

In another memorable game over the weekend, the Kansas City Chiefs destroyed the Pittsburgh Steelers 42-21 thanks to five Patrick Mahomes touchdown passes. For the sixth touchdown, tight end Travis Kelce threw for the score and became the first player in the NFL postseason to throw a touchdown, catch a touchdown, and bank 100 plus receiving yards. This was also most likely Steelers’ QB Ben Roethlisberger’s final game of his career.

Here are the Divisional Round matchups:

Saturday: Bengals and Titans, 49ers at Packers

Sunday: Rams at Buccaneers, Bills at Chiefs

BASKETBALL

LeBron James took to Twitter over the weekend to apologize for the team’s poor play. He stated, “Laker Nation I apologize and I promise we’ll be better.” LeBron has been playing well averaging 28.9 points per game, but the Lakers haven’t stepped up. We’ll see if this motivates the rest of the team to play better.

In other NBA news, the minority owner of the Golden State Warriors, Chamath Palihapitiya, is receiving backlash for his insensitive comments about China’s treatment of the Uyghurs. He said, “nobody cares about what’s happening” to the Uyghurs. The Warriors are trying to distance themselves from him stating he’s only a “limited investor.”
