Brady’s TB12 Diet, Magnus Carlsen Loses To 18 Yr Old, Mice At Australian Open

FOOTBALL

One of the topics of conversation leading up to the Super Bowl is the obvious comparison of how a 43-year old Tom Brady will fare against a 25-year-old Patrick Mahomes. In order to keep in peak physical condition, Brady swears by his TB12 diet. Check out CBS Sports’ Pete Blackburn attempting to live like Brady for a week.

CHESS

The best chess player in the world, Magnus Carlsen shockingly lost to 18-year old Andrey Esipenko at the Tata Steel Tournament. In a tweet after the match, Carlsen jokingly said, “Had a very unpleasant experience at the playing hall today, felt like a swab was being shoved into my nostril and all the way inside my brain, causing a lot of pain. Covid test after the game was not that bad though #TataSteelChess”

TENNIS

The 2021 Australian Open will begin on February 8th, but the players are already on-site due to quarantine protocols. Unfortunately, though, the accommodations are not ideal. Number 28th ranked Yulia Putintseva documented the mice problem in her hotel room, but rather than trying to solve the issue, local authorities are blaming the players for feeding the mice and contributing to the problem.

Brady Vs Mahomes In Super Bowl LV, Haskins Signs W/Steelers, Lions Release Stafford, Eagles Sign Sirianni As Head Coach

FOOTBALL

In the first playoff matchup on Sunday, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers battled it out in a close game. Even though Brady threw for three interceptions, he also threw for 280 yards and three touchdowns to pull out a Tampa Bay win over the Green Bay Packers, 31-26. Brady advanced to his 10th Super Bowl appearance, twice as many as Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway (Denver Broncos). If anyone doubts that Brady is a good luck charm, just consider that since he signed with the Bucs, the Tampa Bay Rays, Tampa Bay Lightning, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have all made it to their respective championships.

In the second playoff game of the night, the Kansas City Chiefs, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, overpowered the Buffalo Bills 38-24. Mahomes looked dominant throwing for 325 yards and three touchdowns. Unfortunately, however, Mahomes blindside protector, offensive tackle Eric Fisher, suffered an Achilles injury and will be sidelined for the Championship game.

Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes‘ February 7th Super Bowl showdown will be exciting. They’ve met four times in close games with each winning twice.

In other NFL news, quarterback Dwayne Haskins, who was recently released from Washington, signed a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers. And, the Detroit Lions have released quarterback Matthew Stafford. No word yet on which team will pick him up.

The Philadelphia Eagles hired Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni as their new head coach.

Bills Vs Kansas City & Packers Vs Buccaneers In AFC/NFC Championships, Jets Hire Saleh, Mets Fire GM

FOOTBALL

The AFC/NFC Championship games are set. The Buffalo Bills defeated the Baltimore Ravens 17-3 thanks in part to the momentum from cornerback Taron Johnson’s 101-yard interception return for a touchdown in the third quarter. With the win, the Bills advance to the AFC Championship game for the first time since the 1993 season.

The Bills will face the Kansas City Chiefs who defeated the Cleveland Browns in a game that came down to the last minute. When KC quarterback Patrick Mahomes went down with a concussion in the third quarter, fans were worried, but backup QB Chad Henne held his own to give the team a 22-17 victory.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers looked spectacular in the Green Bay Packers 32-18 win over the Los Angeles Rams and will matchup against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next weekend. Tampa Bay’s defense overpowered New Orlean Saints quarterback Drew Brees and forced three interceptions on what will likely be the future hall of famer’s last game of his career. Tampa Bay 30, Saints 20

In a video that went viral, Brees’s son Baylen, came up to Brady after the game to toss a football.  Brady threw him the ball which he caught in the end zone. Brady jokingly said, “We could have used you tonight!” The video has more than 7 million views.

The New York Jets hired the San Francisco 49ers’ defensive coordinator Robert Saleh as their next head coach.

According to new owner, Steve Cohen, “In my initial press conference I spoke about the importance of integrity and I meant it. There should be zero tolerance for this type of behavior.”

NHL Season Begins, 27 Players Already Test Positive, Harden’s Disappointment In Rockets

HOCKEY

The NHL is back tonight with a condensed 56-game season. The NHL plans to squeeze a total of 868 games into 116 nights. Unfortunately, the League is already off to a rough start with 27 confirmed players from nine different teams (17 from the Dallas Stars) testing positive for COVID-19.

BASKETBALL

James Harden did not shy away from airing his disappointment in his team, the Houston Rockets, on Tuesday night. After a decisive loss to the LA Lakers, Harden said in his postgame press conference, “We’re just not good enough. Chemistry, talent-wise, everything. It’s clear … I love this city. I’ve literally done everything I can. This situation … it’s crazy. I don’t think it can be fixed. Thanks.” He then abruptly left. His teammates were not happy. John Wall said, “When you have certain guys in the mix that don’t want to buy in as one, it’s gonna be hard to do anything special as a basketball team … It hurts. If we can all get on the same page, we can be something good here. We can’t dwell down on it because it’s only been nine games. Come on, man. You’re going to jump off the cliff off of nine games? There’s a lot of basketball still to be played.”

Browns Beat Steelers For First Playoff Win Since 1994, Nickelodeon’s Broadcast, CFP National Championship Tonight

FOOTBALL

The Cleveland Browns pulled out an amazing win over the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night of Wild Card Weekend. Quarterback Baker Mayfield looked solid throwing for 263 yards and three touchdowns, while Kareem Hunt added two more touchdowns for Cleveland. And the Browns’ defense did their part by forcing five turnovers. After an 11-0 start to the season, the Steelers lost four of their last five games, and then to add insult to injury, lost to the Browns who haven’t won a playoff game since 1994. The Brown will now face last year’s Super Bowl Champs, the Kansas City Chiefs, in the Divisional Round. Browns 48, Steelers 37

In other Divisional round matchups:

The Buffalo Bills vs. the Baltimore Ravens

The Green Bay Packers vs. the LA Rams

The New Orleans Saints vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Nickelodeon broadcast a kid-centric, really fun (and a bit goofy) showing of the New Orleans Saints-Chicago Bears wild-card game over the weekend. The broadcast featured Nickelodeon personalities including appearances from SpongeBob SquarePants and lots of their trademark slime.

Tune in tonight at 8:00 pm ET for the College Football Playoff National Championship between #1 ranked Alabama and #3 ranked Ohio State.
