Patriots Crush Falcons, Brown Fake Vaccine, Newton’s 50 Free Tkts, Peng Shuai Ordeal, Harper/Ohtani MVP’s, Curry Shining

FOOTBALL

The New England Patriots crushed the Atlanta Falcons 25-0 on Thursday Night Football thanks to their defense which made four interceptions and had four sacks.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown is in hot water again. His former chef accused Brown of not paying him $10,000 for services rendered and showed a text exchange implicating Brown and his  girlfriend of buying fake vaccination cards.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton certainly entertained the crowd in his first press conference since returning to his old team. He arrived in a fedora hat with a Clark Kent press pass (Cam is known as Superman for his touchdown celebrations). He also promised to give away 50 free tickets to the Panthers home game this weekend to fans who have never been to the Bank of America stadium. And, then to cap it all off, he moon danced off the podium.

TENNIS

Tennis start Peng Shuai is still missing. Two weeks ago she posted on social media of sexual assault by a powerful government official. The posts were quickly deleted but then she went missing, and no one has seen from her since. A couple of days ago the Chinese government released a statement attributed to her stating that she was fine and no assault ever took place, but most are skeptical the statement was actually from her. The Women’s Tennis Association has been heavily weighing in on this issue, and there are now questions about what to do with the upcoming Winter Olympics in Beijing if this situation is as dire as it seems.

BASEBALL

Bryce Harper was awarded the National League MVP and Shohei Ohtani took home the American League MVP awards Thursday night. Ohtani got a unanimous vote, while Harper received 17 of 30 first-place votes.

BASKETBALL

Steph Curry continues to shine in the Warriors decisive 104-89 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. With 40 points, four rebounds and six assists, he made history again by making at least nine 3-pointers for the 38th time in his career. According to ESPN Stats and Info, “he now has more nine 3-pointer games since April (10) than any other player in NBA their entire NBA career.”

Drew Rosenhaus Terminated Relationship With Brown, Bengals/Browns Marijuana Petition, Giants Hire First Female Coach

FOOTBALL

Drew Rosenhaus terminated his relationship with troubled wide receiver Antonio Brown until Brown gets the help he needs. Brown was released from the Oakland Raiders at the beginning of the 2019 season then was picked up by the New England Patriots. After sexual assault allegations surfaced, he was released from the Patriots and is now currently a free agent (with no agent).

Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns fans are petitioning the State Medical Board of Ohio to legally obtain medical marijuana. Even though most submissions deal with medical illnesses, there was an actual detailed submission called “Bengals/Browns Fans” outlining the need for marijuana due to suffering from their teams’ losing season(s) and inability to ever win a Super Bowl.

BASEBALL

The San Francisco Giants hired the first female full-time coach in Major League Baseball history. Alyssa Nakken will be an assistant under Giants manager Gabe Kapler.

Raiders Triumph Over Chargers, Raiders’ Fan Trending, Brown Profanity-Laced Tweet

FOOTBALL

The Oakland Raiders hosted what will likely be their final primetime game at Oakland Coliseum against their AFC West rival, the Los Angeles Chargers.  With just 1:02 left to play, Raiders’ running back Josh Jacobs scored, giving the Raiders a dramatic 26-24 victory at home. Of course, it didn’t help that LA Chargers’ QB Philip Rivers had the worst game of the season throwing three interceptions. One particular Raiders’ fan has been trending on social media when he was caught on camera with a sign reading, “I missed my court date to see this game!”

Troubled wide receiver Antonio Brown is back in the news. Next week, he is scheduled to meet with the NFL to discuss allegations of sexual assault. Instead of laying low and just trying to present his case, he posted a profanity-laced tweet on social media saying, “Imagine conforming to a system giving it a 100 percent to see them treat me like this is unfairly! Making money off my sweat and blood F— the @nfl I’ll never play in that s— treat black people the worse! Clear my name and go f— your self.” He slightly recanted later in the day stating “he was ‘very frustrated’ and ‘determine’ to return to the NFL.”

Brown Finished With NFL & Enrolled In School, Danny Dimes, Barkley Sprained Ankle

FOOTBALL

Two days after the New England Patriots released wide receiver Antonio Brown (who has been accused of rape and sexual assault), Brown stated he was “finished with the NFL”. According to Brown’s agent, some teams have expressed interest in signing him, but with Brown in the midst of an investigation, it seems unlikely a team would pick him up anytime soon. In the meantime, Brown has enrolled at Central Michigan University and posted on Instagram his four-class schedule with the caption “Back to School”.

New York Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones started on Sunday, replacing veteran Eli Manning. Jones went 23 for 36 for 336 yards with two passing and two rushing touchdowns giving the Giants their first win of the season. An always classy Manning was seen on the sidelines fist bumping Jones after his first TD. Jones has sometime been called “Danny Dimes” meaning “putting the ball on a dime”, and now two NY men have tried to capitalize by trademarking the name. Unfortunately for the Giants though, their superstar running back Saquon Barkley sprained his ankle and is expected to miss several weeks. Giants 32, Buccaneers 31.

A few big stories in week two of the NFL:

One of the biggest stories in week two of the NFL was unfortunately seeing Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffer an elbow injury in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and the New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees leaving the game against the LA Rams with a thumb injury.

CHESS

In case anyone wonders whether playing professional chess is a sport, ESPN writer Aishwarya Kumar wrote about Grandmasters losing weight while playing in competitions. She cited Robert Sapolsky, who studies stress in primates at Stanford University. He proved a chess player can burn up to 6,000 calories a day based on breathing rates, blood pressure and muscle contractions. He noted that “grandmaster’s stress response to chess are on par with what elite athletes experience.” He went on to say, “Grandmasters sustain elevated blood pressure for hours in the range found in competitive marathon runners,”

Wil Lutz Makes History, Raiders Win W/O Brown, Jerry Rice “We all got played”

FOOTBALL

In a wild finish on Monday night football, New Orleans kicker Wil Lutz made history with a 58-yard field goal as time expired to give the team a 30-28 win over the Houston Texans. The career-long kick for Lutz also ranked as the longest field goal in the final 10 seconds of a season-opening game (since the 1970 NFL/AFL merger).

The Oakland Raiders capped off a difficult week dealing with the Antonio Brown saga and came out looking strong and focused in their season-opening win over the Denver Broncos (24-16). Speaking of Brown, former San Francisco 49er and Hall of Famer Jerry Rice said “We all got played” by Brown. He went on to say, “I think when he asked to be released from the Steelers, he wanted to go to the Patriots. He wanted them to trade him to the Patriots. And there was no way that the Steelers would trade him to a rival. So he had to go a different route. And he decided to come through the Bay Area. And I feel sorry for the fans over in Oakland. He was a Denzel Washington and he won the Oscar. He won an Oscar, guys. I’m gonna be honest with you.”

Brown A Patriot, Jackson ‘Not Bad For A RB”, Mahomes Great Day, Foles Suffers Broken Bone, Andreescu & Nadal Win U.S. Open

FOOTBALL

The Antonio Brown saga is seemingly over. After a tumultuous, drama-filled couple of days, Brown signed with the New England Patriots for a one-year deal worth up to $15 million just hours after he was released from the Oakland Raiders. If the seven-time Pro Bowl receiver thrives under Pats’ coach Bill Belichick’s strict system, the Patriots could have grabbed the next secret weapon target for quarterback Tom Brady.

After the first weekend of NFL games, here are just a few stories. For the full weekend recap, click here.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was spectacular against the Miami Dolphins throwing for 324 yards and 5 touchdowns, giving him a perfect passer rating.  In the news conference after the game, Jackson smiled about his performance and said: “Not bad for a running back”. The comment was in reference to those who thought he should switch positions to running back because of his athleticism.

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes also had a great passing day throwing for 378 yards and three touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Speaking of the Jaguars, in some upsetting news, quarterback Nick Foles suffered a broken left clavicle. He will have surgery on Monday, but there is no timetable set for his return.

TENNIS

Nineteen-year-old Bianca Andreescu beat Serena Williams 6-3, 6-5 in the U.S. Open finals and became the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title.

Rafael Nadal held off Daniil Medvedev in an exciting five-set, almost five-hour Men’s U.S. Open final. The win marks Nadal’s 19th major tournament singles title, just one win behind Roger Federer’s record for most men’s major titles.

The Antonio Brown saga continues. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Oakland Raiders are now planning to suspend Brown, but the length of the suspension is still unknown.

The Browns are weighing their options and figuring out what to do with his $30.125 million guaranteed contract.
