    Tom Brady had more reason to celebrate this week outside the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ comeback victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.  Brady was joined by Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh on the "Let’s Go!" podcast Monday to talk about his alma mater’s victory over rival Ohio State.  TOM BRADY TAKES SHOT AT COLTS AFTER WIN: ‘TURNS OUT THAT HORSESHOE ON THEIR HELMET ISN’T AS LUCKY AS IT SEEMS’  "The Wolverines are back," Brady said, via USA Today, of the 42-27 victory over the Buckeyes. "And I said earlier it was one of the great days in college football I can ever remember, just watching. You know, it was a perfect Ann Arbor day, the snow was falling down, the field was … Big Johnny, our old equipment coach, used to say, ‘Rain, blood (expletive deleted) or mud, boys, we’re getting out there, and we’re playing Michigan football.’ And that was a good old Michigan (expletive deleted)-kicking."

    DENVER (AP) — Vic Fangio didn’t pay much attention when the Kansas City Chiefs stumbled to a 3-4 start. All he knows is they’ve fixed whatever was broken, haven’t lost since October and “they’re back to being the Chiefs again.” The same juggernaut that’s won the AFC West every year since 2016 while piling up a cumulative 73-28 record while the Broncos had stumbled to a 38-53 mark since winning Super Bowl 50. The Chiefs (7-4), fresh off a bye, opened as 9½-point favorites, according to FanDuel SportsBook. So, what makes Fangio think the Broncos (6-5) can go into Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday night and beat Kansas City for the first time in a dozen tries? “We’re better than the recent Broncos teams,” Fangio said. “We got a better team.” One that’s loaded with young talent that points to a bright future in Denver, maybe even in the short term Sunday when a win would vault the Broncos into first place in the AFC West, a spot they haven’t seen since Peyton Manning was their quarterback. The Broncos had six...
    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Sophomore Eddie Lampkin notched his first double-double with career highs of 12 points and 12 rebounds and TCU cruised to a 68-51 victory over Austin Peay on Monday night. Preseason All-Big 12 guard Mike Miles added 12 points for the Horned Frogs (5-1). TCU had nine of 11 players who saw action score at least four points. The Horned Frogs came in averaging 15.2 offensive rebounds per game — 10th in the nation — and grabbed 22 against the Governors (3-4). TCU is now 31-3 in the month of November in six seasons under coach Jamie Dixon. Tariq Silver hit a 3-pointer coming out of halftime to pull Austin Peay within 34-29. But Miles hit a jumper, Lampkin had a fastbreak layup and Emanuel Miller hit a bucket in a 6-0 spurt that turned into a 17-1 run and left TCU leading 51-30 with just under 14 minutes to play. Caleb Stone-Carrawell scored 14 to pace the Governors (3-3). Stone-Carrawell made 5 of 9 shots with two 3s. Silver finished with 11 points and...
    During the month of November the Miami Dolphins turned a dreadful start to the season into something that should be admired. Miami’s four straight wins, which became a reality with Sunday’s 33-10 domination of the Carolina Panthers, helped Brian Flores’ team rebound from the seven straight losses that preceded it. So what’s next for the young and seemingly blossoming franchise? Can the Dolphins (5-7) continue to build on the team’s recent success, and can it get Miami back into the playoff conversation? Here is the South Florida Sun Sentinel’s report card, evaluating how the Dolphins performed against the Panthers: Passing Game: B Tua Tagovailoa delivered his fourth 100-plus passer rating (108.3) of the season (8 games played), completing 27-of-31 passes for 230 yards with one touchdown. His knack for getting the ball out his hands quickly neutralized Carolina’s aggressive pass rush, which still managed to produce two first-quarter sacks. Jaylen Waddle had his first 100-yard receiving game, pulling down nine of the 10 passes thrown his way, turning them into 137 yards and one touchdown. Running...

    LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — TyTy Washington scored 14 points to lead No. 10 Kentucky to an 86-52 win over North Florida on Friday night. Oscar Tshiebwe had 12 points and 15 rebounds for Kentucky (5-1), while Damion Collins made his first career start and scored 12 points and Sahvir Wheeler had 12 points and 14 assists. Dontaie Allen added 14 points off the bench, all but two coming in the second half. Jayden Parker led North Florida (1-6) with 10 points.

The Wildcats were without veterans Davion Mintz and Keion Brooks, who sat out with undisclosed illnesses.

    HOUSTON (AP) — TJ McMahon threw two late touchdown passes — including a 3-yarder to Cedric Patterson III with 61 seconds remaining — and Rice rallied for a 35-31 victory over Louisiana Tech on Saturday. Rice (4-8, 3-5 Conference USA) led 14-10 at halftime, but JD Head connected with Smoke Harris for a 5-yard score to give Louisiana Tech (3-9, 2-6) a 17-14 lead midway through the third quarter.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Alex Ovechkin scored two of his three goals over 56 seconds in the second period and the Washington Capitals beat the Florida Panthers 4-3 on Friday. Ovechkin has 18 goals, most through 21 games in a season by a player in at least his 17th season. He’s 19 goals from passing Jaromir Jagr for third on the career list following his 28th hat trick.

    10 thoughts after the Chicago Bears went on an 18-play drive that lasted the final 8 minutes, 30 seconds of Thursday’s game at Ford Field to set up Cairo Santos’ walk-off 28-yard field goal to defeat the Detroit Lions 16-14 and end a five-game losing streak. 1. Matt Nagy got a reprieve as the Bears encountered a team that consistently does more head-scratching and unpredictably dumb football stuff than they do. The Bears were able to take advantage — even if it required every second of all 60 minutes — and extend the misery of the Lions, who fell to 0-10-1 and have not won since a Dec. 6, 2020, trip to Soldier Field last season. The Lions are 0-14-1 since that afternoon, which was their first game after firing general manager Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia on Thanksgiving weekend. The Lions opted to reboot their franchise over the holiday a year ago, and while it looked earlier this week like there was a possibility the Bears would begin a similar process, now it appears that plan...
    SEATTLE (AP) — Marcus Johansson beat Frederik Andersen with a wrist shot with 3:08 remaining, Philipp Grubauer made 35 saves and the Seattle Kraken beat the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on Wednesday night. Seattle won its second straight to close out a six-game homestand and handed the red-hot Hurricanes just their third regulation loss of the season. It was the second straight setback for Carolina after losing to San Jose in overtime Monday night. Seattle’s Jared McCann scored on the power play at 4:16 of the second period and Johansson provided the winner in the closing minutes. Johansson circled the net, and his shot buzzed over Andersen’s left shoulder. It was Johansson’s second goal of the season and gave Seattle its first win this season when trailing after the first period. Brendan Smith gave Carolina an early lead at 18:32 of the first period when his slap shot from the point slipped past Grubauer, who was screened in front by Jordan Staal. But that was all Carolina would get past Grubauer in his best performance to date...
    MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Drew Plitt threw a touchdown pass and ran for a score — in the first quarter — and Ball State became bowl eligible with a 20-3 victory over Buffalo on Tuesday night. It’s just the third time in program history that the Cardinals (6-6, 4-4 Mid-American Conference) have qualified for a bowl game in back-to-back seasons. Ball State and Buffalo met for the MAC championship last season — a game the Cardinals won 38-28. Ball State set the tone early when Malcolm Lee picked off Matt Myers on the Bulls’ first series, giving the Cardinals the ball on Buffalo’s 42-yard line. Eleven plays later Plitt scored on a 1-yard run for a 7-0 lead. Buffalo’s next possession also ended in disaster when Hassan Littles blocked a punt by Jackson Baltar and Brandon Berger recovered, giving Ball State a first-and-goal at the 6. Plitt connected with Jayshon Jackson for a 7-yard score on third down and the Cardinals never looked back. Plitt completed 19 of 31 passes for 176 yards. Jackson finished with nine catches for 103...

    Fox News correspondent Gillian Turner said on Monday people should not be viewing Kyle Rittenhouse as a hero. Outnumbered showed President Joe Biden’s initial response to the verdict Friday, when the president said he “stand[s] by what the jury has concluded.” Kayleigh McEnany brought up the later statement from President Biden and remarked, “We went from ‘the process worked’ to ‘he’s angry.'” Turner said it was “particularly hard for facts to break through” in the Rittenhouse case. “Two of the most persistent, incorrect facts that have pervaded this entire media landscape during this trial are the idea that Kyle traveled across state lines with the firearm, which he did not. Also that he shot Black men, which he did not,” she added. However, Turner continued on to say people shouldn’t be viewing Rittenhouse as a hero or seeing any winners and losers from this verdict: This case is particularly tragic because Kyle may have been acquitted, but he’s not a hero here. There are no heroes, there are no winners. There is no victory lap for Kyle or anybody else...

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Kobe Brown scored 19 of his 24 points after halftime, hitting a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:29 left in overtime as Missouri rallied to defeat SMU 80-75 at the Jacksonville Classic on Sunday night. SMU (3-2) looked to have the game in hand after Emmanuel Bandoumel hit two 3-pointers to cap an 18-0 run to close out the first half, giving the Mustangs a 29-18 lead. SMU was leading 51-39 after Marcus Weathers’ three-point play with 8:31 left. Missouri (3-1) chipped away until a jumper by Brown cut the deficit to 62-59 with 1:50 left. DaJuan Gordon sent the game to OT with a three-point play — on an assist from Brown — with 29 seconds left. Brown’s 3-pointer gave the Tigers the lead for good, but they didn’t nail down the win until Ronnie DeGray III’s three-point play with 8 seconds left gave them a two-score advantage. DeGray finished with 18 points on 5-of-6 shooting. He sank two 3-pointers and made all six of his free throws. Gordon had 14 points and eight rebounds, while Amari...
    The Kansas City Chiefs' defense was getting a lot of criticism early this season.

    Time to suck up your pride, pack away your standards and expectations, and understand it likely won’t get much better than this. At least not this season for this Miami Dolphins offense. Not with a terrible offensive line, this platoon of scatbacks, and this group of injury-plagued receivers. Sunday’s 24-17 win over the New York Jets, which extended Miami’s winning streak to three games, is likely the best this offense can do. Let’s hope it’s not. But let’s also come to terms with what we’re seeing. Miami faced the NFL’s worst scoring defense coming into the game and produced the best offensive output of its season — 388 net yards, 8 of 14 on third downs, 2 of 4 in the red zone, 2 of 2 in goals-to-go situations — without needing any overtime scores and defensive assistance. The Dolphins scored the NFL average of 24 points on Sunday — which is a major milestone for a team that came into the contest averaging 17 points. What should be encouraging is that this can...

    1. COUNTER THE BLITZ The Dolphins blitz on 40% of their defensive snaps, most in the NFL. Sometimes they run Cover 0 with no safety in the middle. They’ll throw in some stunts to cause confusion. Joe Flacco and company need to be ready. This offensive line struggles with stunts. The Bills caused pressure with stunts, which led to one of Mike White’s four interceptions. The communication must be on point. Flacco has to quickly read the blitz, find the hot route and the receivers have to be on the same page. 2. LIMIT THE DOLPHINS RPO The Dolphins run run-pass-option on 17% of their offensive plays (fifth-most in the NFL). It would be even more if Tua Tagovailoa hadn’t missed time with various injuries. RPO gives Tagovailoa the option to hand the football to the running back or throw to a receiver running a slant or hitch over the middle. The offensive line blocks as if it’s run play, which stresses the defense to play the run or the pass. 3. D-LINE NEEDS TO SHOW UP Can...
    Timmy Allen was an all Pac-12 first-team forward at Utah last season. He has not become self-satisfied or complacent at Texas, and wants to expand his range. The senior forward has been working on his 3-pointer, and made his only attempt on Saturday night as part of his 17 points to help No. 8 Texas beat San Jose State 79-45. Allen, who is one of seven who transferred to play for first-year Texas coach Chris Beard this season, averaged 17.2 points and 6.4 rebounds a game last season, but converted only 11 of 41 3-pointers (26.8%).

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kenny Pickett, Jordan Addison and No. 20 Pittsburgh took the chaos out of the ACC’s Coastal Division. Pickett threw for 340 yards and four touchdowns — all of them to Addison — in his final game at Heinz Field and the Panthers claimed their second Coastal title in four years with a 48-38 victory over Virginia on Saturday night.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston FOXBORO (CBS) — Forty-five to seven. Forty-freaking-five. To. Seven. Any way you slice that, it is a first-class, no-doubt-about it thumping. A whooping. A complete and total blowout. That’s what the Patriots earned on Sunday, forcing the Browns to mentally check out before the third quarter even came to an end. When the final whistle mercifully sounded, it was done: 45-7. Gross. Considering the way it ended, it would be ludicrous to say that the game could have gone differently. Yet … entertain this notion. The Patriots got run over on the opening drive. D’Ernest Johnson ran wild. Carl Davis committed a penalty. Jalen Mills got hurt. Adrian Phillips let up a touchdown on fourth-and-goal. It wasn’t an encouraging start for the home team. The Patriots then gained possession and gave the ball twice to Rhamondre Stevenson; he gained just two yards. Facing a third-and-8, the Patriots were at real risk of punting the ball back to Cleveland’s offense after just a minute of possession. It was a tricky spot. But rookie QB Mac Jones took...

    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Zach Charbonnet had three rushing touchdowns for the second time this season, Dorian Thompson-Robinson racked up 356 yards of total offense and UCLA became bowl eligible for the first time in four years with a 44-20 victory over Colorado on Saturday night. Charbonnet had all of his scores in the second half as the Bruins rallied from a 20-7 second-quarter deficit with 37 straight points. UCLA (6-4, 4-3) is the fifth team from the Pac-12 to become bowl eligible. It is also the first time they will play in a bowl in Chip Kelly’s four-year tenure. Nicholas Barr-Mira’s 40-yard field goal on the last play of the first half got UCLA within 10 at halftime before it scored touchdowns on four straight drives and added another on Kyle Philips’ 82-yard punt return to make it 44-20 in the fourth quarter. It is the second time this season Charbonnet has had three touchdowns. The junior, who finished with 67 yards on 17 carries, scored from a yard out on the opening drive of the third quarter to...
    DAVIS, Calif. (AP) — Eric Barriere passed for 411 yards and three touchdowns and Eastern Washington rallied for a 38-20 victory over UC Davis on Saturday night. Barriere completed 34 of 54 passes and has thrown for 3,526 yards with 32 TDs and only six picks this season. Pierce ran for 89 yards on 17 carries, while Barriere added 42 on seven totes. Roberson finished with six catches for 93 yards, while Talolo Limu-Jones caught six passes for 92. Barriere became the Big Sky Conference’s career leader in passing yards with 12,676, breaking former Eagle Matt Nichols’ record of 12,616. He is also tied with Vernon Adams Jr.’s program and Big Sky Conference mark for all-time touchdown passes with 110. Eastern Washington, which had lost back-to-back games, was eliminated from contention for the Big Sky Conference title — and its automatic entry into the FCS playoffs — when Montana State won earlier in the day but boosted its odds for an at-large berth with a road win over a potential playoff team. UC Davis, ranked No. 4 in the...

    COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Tyler Badie rushed 34 times for 209 yards and a touchdown and Missouri held off South Carolina’s fourth-quarter charge to defeat the Gamecocks 31-28 on Saturday. The Tigers (5-5, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) built a 17-point lead when Badie scored on a 19-yard run with 12:31 left in the game. That’s when the opportunistic Gamecocks (5-5, 2-5 SEC) made things interesting by converting two Missouri turnovers into touchdowns and slicing the deficit to three points with 4:32 left. But they never saw the ball again, thanks to Badie, who rushed for 63 yards on the final drive. The game turned late in the third quarter when blitzing safety Martez Manuel jarred the ball from South Carolina quarterback Jason Brown and defensive end Trajan Jeffcoat recovered in the end zone to give the Tigers a 10-point lead. Missouri’s Connor Bazelak completed 15 of 23 passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns. Mookie Cooper had three catches for 72 yards and a touchdown. Brown, who was making his second start of the year, completed 16 of 30 passes for...
    BOSTON (AP) — Aaron Shampklin ran for 116 yards and two touchdowns — including a 72-yarder — and Jonah Lipel kicked three field goals to lead Harvard to a 23-7 victory over Pennsylvania in Ivy League action on Saturday. Shampklin’s long TD run was the only score in the first quarter. Lipel stretched the Harvard (7-2, 4-2) lead to 10-0 with a 25-yard field goal early in the second quarter. The Quakers (3-6, 1-5) answered with Isaiah Malcome’s 20-yard scoring run on the ensuing drive to get within three points before Lipel’s 30-yard field goal on the final play of the half gave the Crimson a 13-7 lead. The only scoring after intermission was Lipel’s 41-yard field goal in the third quarter and Shampklin’s 16-yard TD run with 2:32 left in the game. Luke Emge completed 13 of 28 passes for 167 yards for Harvard. James Herring had two of the Crimson’s three interceptions. Aidan Sayin was 20-of-36 passing for 207 yards with three picks for Penn. The Quakers were held to 60 yards rushing on 25 attempts. __...
    Barry Williams, Mandel Ngan – Getty A former Apprentice contestant named Summer Zervos, who accused Donald Trump of sexual harassment, dropped her lawsuit against the ex-president this weekend. The Friday filing in Manhattan Supreme Court states that the suit is dismissed and discontinued with prejudice, which means she cannot file it again in the same state, and that all parties are responsible for paying their own legal expenses. Zervos was one of many women who came forward to say that Trump had committed acts of sexual harassment or worse. She accused Trump of having groped and kissed her against her will while she was on The Apprentice in 2007. Her attorneys Beth Wilkinson and Moira Penza released a statement saying that “Ms. Zervos no longer wishes to litigate against the defendant and has secured the right to speak freely about her experience.” “Ms. Zervos stands by the allegations in her complaint,” they added. Zervos has been in high-profile court battles with Trump for five years. The defamation lawsuit alleged that Trump had defamed Zervos by accusing her of being a...

    The USMNT defeated Mexico for a third time in 2021 with a familiar scoreline resulting in Dos a Cero chants in the stadium and around the internet.

    DENVER (AP) – The Denver Broncos still haven’t found a way to rule the AFC West again but they can crown themselves kings of the NFC East with a win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Coming off a clobbering of the Cowboys in Dallas that was as comprehensive as it was confounding, the Broncos would head into their bye at 6-4 if they can take care of Jalen Hurts and an Eagles team that isn’t quite as bad as its 3-6 record might imply. Not since sweeping the NFC North in 2015 on their way to winning Super Bowl 50 have the Broncos gone 4-0 against the NFC division on their schedule. “I think it was a big momentum boost for our next couple of games,” Denver D-lineman DeShawn Williams said of the Broncos’ 30-16 win over the heavily favored Cowboys in which they held the NFL’s best offense scoreless for 56 minutes. That was their first victory over a winning team in nearly a year and only their third win since 1988 as a double-digit underdog. “I don’t...
