    TRIPLE H will not take over running WWE from Vince McMahon when the billionaire retires, claims Eric Bischoff. The Game, who is continuing to recover from a heart operation, has been touted by many to be the natural successor to the family business. 2Eric Bischoff has been speaking about who will succeed Vince McMahonCredit: WWE 2Many believe The Game will take over the family business when the billionaire calls it quits The 52-year-old, who is married to McMahon’s daughter Stephanie, has been widely-hailed for the huge success overseeing the creation of NXT. That has led many people to assume that the Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development of WWE would step up if his CEO father-in-law either steps down or passes away. However, one man who tried to put the McMahon’s out of business before going on to work for them does not think it will happen. Former WWE Executive and WCW President Eric Bischoff told Renee Paquette on her Oral Sessions podcast: “What happens when Vince McMahon steps down? “Whether he goes out on the job,...
    SANTA CLARA (CBS SF/AP) — Elijah Mitchell has been one of the NFL’s biggest surprises this season. Whether it’s going from overlooked sixth-round project out of Louisiana-Lafayette into one of the league’s productive backs as a rookie, or his knack on nearly every run for the San Francisco 49ers to churn out a couple of extra yards, Mitchell exceeds expectations.

Then people in the box tell me it’s second-and-6. I don’t totally believe him because I saw that he was going down and I don’t realize that he fell forward and got 4 yards. When it’s like that, which he does all the time now, you keep going, it helps you keep doing it.” Mitchell has been consistently doing that all...
    The Giants, who have won 23 of the 74 games they’ve played since the last time they had a winning record, have now decided that the only way to get things going in the right direction again is to fire their offensive coordinator. It reminds you of the old days at Yankee Stadium when George Steinbrenner would fire a pitching coach. But this isn’t about Jason Garrett. From now until the end of the regular season, this is about the head coach, who loses his cover now. He is the one who owns everything that happens on offense for the Giants the rest of the way, good or bad. Judge needs to put some points on the board as much as Daniel Jones does. Maybe the Giants can put it on the Eagles Sunday, one of the teams ahead of them in the NFC East, the way the Bucs put it on the Giants Monday night, before Garrett officially went under the team bus the next day. Or, better yet: The Giants need to put it on the...
    For the third time in four games, the 49ers are celebrating a victory, and here is what they’re saying after Sunday’s 30-10 rout of the host Jacksonville Jaguars: COACH KYLE SHANAHAN On why he opted for a field goal to close the 20-play opening drive: “Just how long of a drive it was. It thought it was closer to 2 yards than 1. They have a pretty good run defense. When you go that long of a drive and if we would have come out with no points, that would have given them a lot of momentum and got them going. I wanted to go for it bad. It was hard for me not to.” On calling a timeout before opting not to go for it and instead kick a field goal: “I called the play more out of emotion. The longer I got to think about it, I didn’t think it was the smartest decision. I wanted to take the points and make sure we got three out of it. “It’s hard to...
    A black star high school running back's season-ending injury was a deliberate and racist attack, his father said, after a player from the opposing football team used racist taunts following a tackle that broke his son's ankle.  NiJhay Burt, who plays for Steel Valley in Western Pennsylvania, was sidelined for the rest of the playoff season after suffering the ankle injury during a game against the predominantly white South Side Area last Friday. Burt's father, Delorean Parms, told area news station KDKA that the injury was no accident.  'He says while he was on the ground, someone was twisting his ankle and after they were twisting at his ankle, they stood up saying racial things in his face,' Parms told KDKA.  He said players claimed the n-word was being freely used throughout the game. The Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League and both school districts investigated the play and game amid accusations by Steel Valley of dirty playing by South Side, the outlet reports.  SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO  Steel Valley running back NiJhay Burt, pictured, will been sidelined for the rest of the playoff...
    The 49ers surprised the Rams and the NFL with a 31-10 thumping of Los Angeles on Monday Night Football. Jimmie Ward made two early interceptions — including a pick-six — to put the 49ers ahead early. From there, Deebo Samuel did it all, scoring on a run and a catch as the Niners took advantage of a bad night from Matthew Stafford and moved within a half-game of a playoff spot. Here’s what they said after the win: Kyle Shanahan On the goal of 40 runs: I said 40 today ’cause 40 tells the whole team and the defense has to play that way. The whole team has to play that way and the special teams have to play that way, and you have to do good on third down. You got to get turnovers. You can’t turn it back so you steal some possessions that allow you to do it.” On win streak over rams: “Each game is different. They’ve all played out similarly though. We had a good week. Our guys...

Barber faced flight delays and canceled Ubers, and even needed permission from New York State Troopers to make it to the starting line to run the race on just thirty minutes of sleep. The former NFL star, who miraculously made it to his seventh in-person NYC Marathon, was broadcasting the LSU vs. Alabama game on Saturday, and kickoff was scheduled last week for 7 p.m. “If it was a 3:30 p.m. game, I could get home,” Barber told us he figured.

    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Coming off a big win against their rival, the Cleveland Browns, the Steelers are once again over .500 and sitting third in the AFC North with a record of 4-3. READ MORE: Pope Francis Appoints Father Mark Eckman As Auxiliary Bishop In The Diocese Of PittsburghAs the team gets ready to take on the Bears in a Monday Night Football matchup at Heinz Field, many believe that as the season progresses, the Steelers need to focus on getting the run game established in order to stay in the win column. “Pittsburgh is rushing for only 86 yards per game and that’s fifth-worst in the league,” said Amy Trask. “Yes, I know there’s been games in which they’ve done better and there’s been some improvement over the season.” Trask said this is more than just a current season issue. In 2020, the Steelers were at the bottom of the league at 84.4 yards per game. 2019 wasn’t much better fourth-worst with just over 90 yards per game. READ MORE:...
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Matt Rhule has been preaching for weeks that the Carolina Panthers need to stay committed to running the football and rely on a defense filled with former first- and second-round draft picks to win games. The Panthers (4-4) did just that Sunday, running the ball 47 times for 203 yards and holding the Atlanta Falcons to 213 total yards of offense to snap a four-game losing steak with a 19-13 road win. Carolina is expected to follow that same formula for success Sunday against the New England Patriots, especially if running back Christian McCaffrey is able to return from a hamstring injury and backup P.J. Walker is pressed into a starting role at quarterback. Sam Darnold is in the league’s concussion protocol, but Rhule is “hopeful” that his QB will play against the Patriots. As for McCaffrey, he’ll test out his hamstring in practice Wednesday and the team will make a determination on his status later in the week. “Hopefully we can get Christian back soon,” Rhule said. “If it’s not this week, hopefully it will...
    A history of zombie movies 10 Reasons You Should Claim Social Security Early Let Jerome Bettis take the floor and make an MVP case for the NFL’s best running back. © Andrew Nelles, The Tennessean Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry in action last Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Derrick Henry, the Tennessee Titans’ sledgehammer of a weapon, is following up on his 2,000-yard season with so much more of the same. "For me as a running back, I love not only his dominance at the point-of-attack, but it’s his ability, too, to run away from guys and go 80 or 90 yards," Bettis, the Hall of Famer, told USA TODAY Sports this week. "That’s insane. And he’s so consistent. The numbers are astronomical."   From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day. Henry heads back to Indianapolis – where on his last two trips he ripped up the Colts with 178- and 149-yard rushing games – as the NFL’s runaway train of a rushing leader. With 869 yards...
    A year ago, defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale was critical of the Cincinnati Bengals after they kicked a late field goal to ruin the Ravens’ shutout in a 27-3 victory. On Sunday, the Ravens’ coaching staff was saluting the Bengals after a 24-point win that put Cincinnati (5-2) in first place in the AFC North after seven weeks. There was much discussion about whether there was a shift in power brewing in the division before the season started, but the Bengals made it official Sunday. They crushed the Ravens, 41-17, and made Baltimore (5-2) appear as lifeless as the Los Angeles Chargers, who the Ravens whipped, 34-6, last week. Ravens coach John Harbaugh has always been reluctant to wave the white flag. He has traditionally played his starting quarterbacks to the bitter end in almost every game, regardless of the score. But once Cincinnati went ahead 41-17 with about seven minutes remaining, Harbaugh pulled starter Lamar Jackson. It was no más. “They came into a division game on the road and played great, and they won and beat us,” Harbaugh...
    Have the Miami Dolphins added a newfound commitment to the running game? The Dolphins had 29 rushes for 132 yards (a 4.6 yard-per-carry average) in Sunday’s 30-28 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The attempts matched how many they had the previous two games combined, and the yards were nearly as much as they ran for the previous three games combined (151). The rushing success led to easier third downs, and the Dolphins converted 7 of 11 such opportunities against the Falcons. They also held a time of possession advantage over Atlanta, 34:38-25:22. According to co-offensive coordinator Eric Studesville, who is also the running backs coach, it wasn’t some big change Dolphins coaches decided on during the week of preparation for the Falcons. “We put together the running attack with the intention of trying to run the ball every week,” Studesville said. “We know that’s an important component to our offense. We want to do that. As games change, as situations change in the game, if we don’t run it as much because we’re throwing it better or situations dictate that,...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Jets have a lot of things they need to be worried about. The Patriots aren’t one of those things. Nevertheless, in the wake of Sunday’s 54-13 thumping at the hands of Bill Belichick’s team, some Jets were left with a sour taste in their mouths. According to Connor Hughes of The Athletic, offensive lineman Morgan Moses said that he and some of his teammates were “bothered” by the Patriots “running up the score.” Morgan Moses said he & others were bothered by #Patriots running up the score — Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) October 24, 2021 That was a more definitive statement than defensive lineman Sheldon Rankins’ ambiguous postgame comments when asked about the Patriots continuing to throw the ball downfield despite the large lead.

    LOS ANGELES — Walker Buehler was pretty good on three days’ rest. On Thursday we’ll see how the Giants’ offense works on four games of sleep. Only the most distinguished oracle would dare to predict what will happen in Game 5, with the Dodgers and Giants locked in Oracle Park until the winner of this National League Division Series comes out. But San Francisco did not win 107 regular-season games by swinging the bats as inefficiently as this. Now Julio Urias, the Dodgers’ four-leaf clover, is rested and ready for Thursday. “I don’t think we could have any more confidence in anybody than we do in Julio,” Buehler said. Five of the first 10 Dodgers got hits in Game 3, and nine of the first 17 either reached base or launched a run-scoring fly ball. The Dodgers also left five men in scoring position in the first three innings and only led by a nervous 2-0. But Mookie Betts drilled a two-run homer to right field in the fourth inning, and the Giants couldn’t have made...
    Former Broncos tight end Nate Jackson joined CBS4 sports anchor Michael Spencer on Xfinity Monday Live. (CBS4) – The Broncos are coming off their second straight loss, and Nate Jackson says the Denver Broncos have to get more physical in order to get back on a winning streak.

Aller/Getty Images) “If I were the coach, I would say, ‘Hey guys, we got pushed around the line of scrimmage on both sides of the field, defense and offense. We have to put on the pads on this week. We’re going to have a physical week of practice. I know the NFL PA only allows 13 padded practices a year, but we’re going to use two of them this week,’” said Jackson when asked about issues with the Broncos offense. Jackson also pointed out that there was plenty of blame to go around following Sunday’s loss. “They’re not blocking very well at the point of attack,”...
    Entering football on Monday night, the Ravens went at least 100 yards in 43 straight games, joining the Steelers 174-77, the longest in NFL history. It’s hard to ignore the power of the Ravens ’peak play since the start in 2018. It is no coincidence that this is the year Lamar Jackson took charge of the quarter. -Starting Baltimore. Having played only 50 games in his career, he ranks 11th in the yards, the fastest quarterback in history with 3,185 professional rush yards. Everyone he falls for has played in more than 100 games. He is on the verge of breaking the record at the end of his life. In 2019, Jackson broke Michael Wick’s record by a quarter of a season.

While teams are dropping back to pass with greater ferocity than any other time in history, what of the running game?

    Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin may or may not have accused Nick Saban and Alabama of running up the score during Saturday’s game. The Ole Miss Rebels had the chance to be the team to upend the Alabama Crimson Tide’s undefeated season. They were the 12th-ranked team in the nation entering Saturday and had not suffered a loss in the 2021 season as well. But, Ole Miss was slapped back to reality once kickoff took place, as they were defeated 42-21. After the game, Kiffin made a comment that Alabama senior running back Brian Robinson Jr. was “still in there at the end.” Did Kiffin accuse Saban of trying to run up the score?

    From his perch in the coaches box, Oregon State offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren surveyed the scene Saturday night at the L.A. Coliseum. There was plenty to like: The Beavers were leading by 25 points early in the fourth quarter. USC’s defense had no answers, the crowd had no hope, and 61 years of frustration and futility in the venerable stadium were melting away. Lindgren glanced at his call sheet from OSU’s sixth touchdown drive: Eight plays — all of them runs. It was a dream scenario in an alternate universe. Oregon State was bludgeoning USC at the line of scrimmage to a degree rarely seen in the Coliseum. “You’re always hoping it would be like that,” Lindgren said Sunday. “But I had envisioned the game going down to the wire and us having to be a lot more patient: This run for four yards; that run for three yards; then maybe pop one. But it was was 45-17, and I was thinking, ‘This is pretty cool.’” The Beavers’ first victory over USC in the Coliseum since 1960 featured plenty of...
    NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon stopped by this morning on OutKick The Tailgate from Vanderbilt’s campus ahead of Vanderbilt’s matchup against No. 2 Georgia. Moon, 64, discussed a variety of topics on his career and changes in today’s game, noting the seriousness in which he watches football. Moon pointed to ESPN’s ManningCast as something that doesn’t fit his needs due to the comedic nature of the show. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "It’s a little bit different. I’m a hardcore football guy, so I don’t want jokesters in the game, I want to analyze the game," Moon said. "I look at the game a lot differently than most people look at em’, I’m really quiet about it and so that’s kind of what I want to see when I see a game. I don’t want to see a lot of comedy." With guests such as Pat McAfee and Rob Gronkowski, comedy has certainly been a staple on the ManningCast. Moon was asked about how the game has changed over time and if he’d have the...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots had a shot at stealing a Week 1 win away from the Miami Dolphins last Sunday. But with New England knocking on the door in the red zone, running back Damien Harris coughed up the football and ended the team’s chances at a 1-0 start to the season. Bill Belichick was pretty miffed at the team’s ball security after the Patriots fumbled four times on Sunday, losing two of them. Both of those lost fumbles were on Patriots running backs, with rookie Rhamondre Stevenson also turning it over on the team’s second drive of the game.

    If you can remember the price of a 30-ounce jar of mayonnaise, what an Armani purse goes for and how much to pay for an iPhone 12, there's really only one place to shine — "The Price Is Right." The longest-running game show in television history is celebrating its 50th season this month and offering viewers a chance to, as always, "come on down" to win by guessing the correct retail price for various items. Some rival game shows reward their contestants for esoteric knowledge, others physicality. With some shows, contestants need luck, a friend to phone, strategy or an ability to cook or sing. On "The Price Is Right," the value of things is itself valued. "This show is about how much a can of creamed corn is. That’s what’s great about it. Because whether you are just scraping by or you’re Martha Stewart, you probably bought a can of cream corn," says George Gray, the show's announcer since 2011. "The Price Is Right" is a remarkably sturdy thing, surviving the retirement of beloved host Bob Barker in 2007,...
    How much better is the New York Giants’ offense with Saquon Barkley on the field? Alexander Wilson September 7, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit When the New York Giants drafted Saquon Barkley 2nd overall in 2018, they saw a generational running back that could change the dynamic of a modern NFL offense. Barkley, who the Giants paired with WR1 Odell Beckham Jr. during his rookie season, helped lead the unit to 23.1 points per game on average. Fast forward to 2020, and the Giants or struggling to average over 17 points, as Barkley suffered significant knee damage in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears, holding him out for the remainder of the season. During Barkley’s rehabilitation, the Giants rolled with Wayne Gallman at running back, and while he served valiantly, they simply didn’t have the talent at receiver to help quarterback Daniel Jones maximize his talents. In fact, the Giants have done very little to help Jones succeed in the NFL, building a liability of...
    The Ohio State Buckeyes were able to pull out a season-opening road win 45-31 against the Minnesota Golden Gophers. It was a night game to open the season against a Big Ten Conference opponent that was both prepared and highly motivated. Add in a fully-juiced and packed house and some inclement weather, and there were all the ingredients for an upset. However, just like he did in his previous 15 Big Ten games, Ryan Day was able to navigate the rocky waters to a conference win. It wasn’t always pretty, but Day never lost his cool and was able to counter punch a great game plan by Gopher coach PJ Fleck. The Gophers controlled the clock to the tune of nearly 40 minutes, which frustrated the OSU offense and nearly helped pull off an upset, but in the end, it wasn’t enough. There was plenty of good for OSU, but plenty of areas of concern that need to be cleaned up before the Oregon Ducks travel to Columbus on 9/11.

    Getty Raymond Calais tries to shed off a tackle during the Los Angeles Rams' 13-6 loss to the Chargers on Saturday. Not one player on the Los Angeles Rams surpassed 23 rushing yards on Saturday against the Chargers, regardless if it was quarterback Bryce Perkins taking off running or Raymond Calais, Jake Funk and Xavier Jones trying to find a crease in the trenches to run through. Seventy-three yards represents the final total in the 13-6 loss, a number that got head coach Sean McVay to not mince any words during Monday’s post practice presser. “The run game, you know, it was sloppy, it wasn’t very good, it wasn’t clean,” McVay told reporters, which can be heard near the 1:50 mark of the video below. “There were a couple of opportunities, but for the most part I didn’t think it was very good.” Play Sean McVay, Raheem Morris & Kevin O'Connell Post-Practice Press Conference0:00 Rams head coach Sean McVay discusses what he wants to see out of joint practices with the Raiders later...

    Kevin Harts Best Roles Nasdaq gains firm but Dow struggles to retain grip on 35,000 ahead of Fed policy update The Cleveland Browns have two star running backs and perhaps the best offensive line in football, with a coach that leaned on the running game early in the season. They have a reputation as a running team.  That's not undeserved, but it's also not entirely accurate. That could open up a betting value.  Late last season, when coach Kevin Stefanski was more comfortable with Baker Mayfield, the Browns threw more. They actually threw at a rate that would have put them in the top 10 of all NFL teams over a full season.  And Mayfield was very good when the passing game opened up.  © Provided by Yahoo!

    Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines are rising stars in the Indianapolis Colts’ backfield, but people forget that Marlon Mack’s balanced game gives Indy a unique advantage. The Indianapolis Colts are among the NFL teams opponents should be concerned about entering the 2021 season. Imagine the numbers Mack can put up behind a more experienced Nelson, another stud back in Taylor, along with new left tackle Eric Fisher when he is 100 percent recovered from his own Achilles tear. The running game for Indy has the potential to be the best it’s been in a long time. Hines has proven that he can handle the punishment of running between the tackles, but he’s better used as a receiver and on special teams with his 5-foot-9, 196-pound frame. So while Mack improves as a receiver, the Colts can still use Hines out the backfield, only adding more weapons to their arsenal. With Carson Wentz joining Indy, the Colts may want to ease him in by using the running game often until he’s mastered the offense. That falls right into Mack’s playbook, as he...
    Getty Philadelphia 76ers center Dwight Howard confers with assistant coach Sam Cassell before a game against the Charlotte Hornets. Ben Simmons’ future with the Philadelphia 76ers may be the hottest topic in the City of Brotherly Love right now, but the All-Star point guard isn’t the only one who could be leaving. A key member of Doc Rivers’ coaching staff also appears to be considering a big move. Sam Cassell, one of Rivers’ right hands dating back to his 2014 move from the Boston Celtics to the Los Angeles Clippers, has borne the look of a prime candidate for a number of top jobs this offseason. Before the Beantowners hired Ime Udoka, Heavy’s Sean Deveney opined that Cassell “should be their man.” Elsewhere, the Washington Wizards — the team with which Cassell got his first official assistant’s gig — appeared to be a no-brainer landing spot for the former NBA All-Star as he seeks his first head-coaching role.

The Bills were slightly below average on the ground, netting 1,723 yards and averaging 4.2 yards per carry. Both figures ranked 20th in the league. Devin Singletary, in his second year, led the club with 687 yards. But quarterback Josh Allen was arguably the team’s most effective runner, gaining 421 yards and eight TDs on the ground. Zack Moss also had 481 yards and four touchdowns, but got hurt in the team’s playoff victory over the Colts. According to Bills offensive line coach Bobby Johnson, the biggest issue with Buffalo’s run game in 2020 was the amount of negative plays. “Inherently, as a line coach, your kind of calling card, if you will, is, “Well, how did you run the ball?”...
    Getty Mark Sanchez celebrates a New York Jets touchdown on January 3, 2010. It has been almost a decade since the former New York Jets face of the franchise, Mark Sanchez, took a snap under center in green and white. His last season with the Jets was spent on the injured reserve with a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder. That was the preseason of 2013. Sanchez’s career never materialized after its hot start in 2009 and 2010. The Jets made the AFC Championship game during the quarterback’s rookie and sophomore campaigns under Rex Ryan, but things went downhill from there. Later, after brief stints with the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Washington Football Team, the quarterback formerly known as “the Sanchize” retired after 10 seasons in the league. The ex-Jet signal-caller landed on his feet pretty quickly, taking a job as an ESPN college football analyst alongside Jonathan Vilma. Now it appears Sanchez could be in line for a promotion, but he’s got some stiff competition for the job.Sanchez Auditions for CBS BoothAndrew Marchand of the New York...
    Race correction in medicine: A fight brewing in Americas hospitals Rep. Jamaal Bowman calls Sen. Joe Manchin the new Mitch McConnell and accuses him of doing everything in his power to stop democracy There can be a lot of tedious tasks your villagers need to complete in Going Medieval, and those tasks can take several hours to complete. You can also set it up to where everything is running extremely efficiently, assigning villagers cooking, construction, mining, and crafting tasks with the proper station. All of those can be queued and ready to go, so you don’t always have to watch them.

    A fan was tackled after running on the court Monday night when the Wizards beat the 76ers 122-114. During the third quarter of the playoff game, a fan made the decision to run around on the court, and he learned stupid games have stupid prizes.

    A man had to be tackled to the ground by security after running on to the court during the  Washington Wizards - Philadelphia 76ers playoff game on Monday in the latest example of NBA fans behaving badly.  Video of the incident posted to Twitter shows a man in a yellow shirt jumping towards one of the hoops as if he is going to make a dunk, when a security guard grabs his legs and tackles him to the ground.  An announcer for the game joked that the guard should be hired by a football team. He said: 'The Redskins better look into hiring that man right there.' 'What a tackle there by security.'   The court invader was soon escorted off the court and into the tunnel as fans booed at him. pic.twitter.com/pRsQRQQzLG— Rob Perez (@WorldWideWob) June 1, 2021 The security guard grabbed the mans legs, and tackled him to the ground Dwight Howard, of the Philadelphia 76ers, looked down at the man who was tackled to the ground by a security guard at Monday's game A security...
    So the 49ers did, after all, draft a Georgia high school star who transferred to Ohio State and boosted his stock in a playoff rout of Clemson. Just not Justin Fields. Say hello, instead, to Trey Sermon. Sermon could make the most immediate impact among this 49ers’ draft class. Time will tell how he fits into a running back corps already loaded with experienced starters in Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr. and Wayne Gallman. Rookie camp opens next week. Before you bookmark him for your fantasy football team, here is what’s to know about Sermon: — His 4.57-second 40-yard dash doesn’t fit the profile of 49ers’ speedsters in recent years under Kyle Shanahan. However, a 4.58-second time in 2005 worked out just fine for Frank Gore, the 49ers’ all-time leading rusher. Gore, like Sermon, was a third-round pick, as were Hall of Famers Bob St. Clair (1953), Dave Wilcox (’64), Joe Montana (’79) and Terrell Owens (’96). — General manager John Lynch on Sermon’s speed: “You may look at his 40 time and...
    You’ve probably seen the acronym “DLSS” appearing in more gaming and tech stories recently. You might know that it’s an Nvidia graphics thing, and that it might be coming to the new Nintendo Switch console that’s rumored to release later in 2021, according to a report from Bloomberg. But, really, what is it, and why does it matter? DLSS stands for deep learning super sampling, and it’s a way for Nvidia’s RTX graphics cards to work smarter, not necessarily harder, by running games at a lower resolution, then using dedicated AI cores to improve visual quality with less of the usual performance cost. The deep learning component works on the fly to make your game look as if you haven’t lowered its resolution at all. This feature only works with supported PC games, of which there are over 20 at the time of publishing, including Cyberpunk 2077, Fortnite, Monster Hunter World, Control, and others. On PC, the technique has proven itself to yield a sizable performance boost. Especially with the advent of ray tracing tech, DLSS has been...
    Ontario explosion: 2 dead after fireworks blast Southern California home Newsom acknowledges recall is likely to qualify for the ballot as final signatures are turned in The career of running back Trey Sermon has been a roller coaster. The Georgia native was a coveted recruit out of Sprayberry High School when he signed with Oklahoma in 2017. Sermon found immediate success as a freshman and carried that momentum through to his final season in Norman as one of the top draft-eligible running backs.  © Provided by CBS Sports In 2019, his touches dipped more than 50% as the program introduced Rhamondre Stevenson, Kennedy Brooks and T.J. Pledger to the rotation.  "I have always split carries. Going into my junior year, we had a really good backfield. All of the running backs were pretty good and even adding Jalen [Hurts] in, he was a great runner as well. There weren't many carries to go around between all of us. It was a talented offense," Sermond said of the Sooners. "We had great receivers as well. Over time, it was limited...
    The “Madden 22” cover athlete may have been leaked. A GameStop located in a Pennsylvania mall has a sign up that encourages people to reserve their copy of the game. On the sign is the apparent cover of the upcoming game, featuring Titans running back Derrick Henry. The cover is in the same style as the updated look from “Madden 21.” The sign was located by TikTok user @jordanr03.  MORE: Full history of “Madden” cover athletes If Henry is the athlete chosen, he’d be a logical choice. I explained why in my predictions for the next athlete. Henry was my No. 2 candidate behind MVP winner Aaron Rodgers. But “Madden” has already gone with a quarterback in three of the past four years, so moving on from that position makes total sense. Henry is the best candidate at his position, considering that he’s coming off a 2,000-yard season, and an Offensive Player of the Year award. He’ll also be the first active running back on the cover since Peyton Hillis in “Madden 12.” (EA Sports) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/8f/5d/derrick-henry-madden_1lcwa06qjp2n1q9a2pwbrxyd0.png?t=-1849141593&w=500&quality=80 While this may seem...
    Aaron Jones is off the market but the Miami Dolphins still can add a prime running back. It was clear that the Miami Dolphins would be in the market for a lead running back this offseason. They’ll head back to the drawing board with the top name now off the table. Following his Pro Day, some scouts believe Etienne will be the top back of the draft class. Everything evaluators needed to see was on full display at Clemson Thursday afternoon. Etienne bulked up from 199 to 215 but kept his overall speed, running a  4.45 40-time in both of his attempts. He also has the dual-threat ability that will help him win as a pass-catcher in the short game. Grier could have a great problem at hand should they remain on the clock at No.18. This will be about fit. Harris adds value between the trenches while Etienne shines on the perimeter. Both are talented in the passing game and as overall blockers. Miami missed out on Jones, but that might bode in their favor. With two young options that...

    Ohio sues U.S. Census Bureau over delay in population data Top Senate official disqualifies minimum wage from stimulus plan After a trip to the Western Conference finals in the bubble, things haven't been going to plan for the Denver Nuggets this season, and Thursday night's loss to the Washington Wizards was the latest example. It wasn't just that they lost, but the bizarre manner in which it happened.  © Provided by CBS Sports We'll pick things up with six seconds left in the fourth quarter. After Raul Neto misses a layup, the Nuggets have the ball and trail by two points. And thanks to a kind bounce on the rebound, they're off to the races with a numbers advantage. Pushing the ball out ahead of him, Jamal Murray led a 3-on-1 fastbreak that put the Nuggets in great position to tie or win the game. Then this happened.  This Nuggets end of game sequence ????

    After putting a pin in short-term updates and expansions to focus on a “longer-term redesign” of the game, EA announced today that it will be canceling its planned revamp of the game Anthem Next. But the company plans to keep Anthem’s live service running “as it exists today.” “In the spirit of transparency and closure we wanted to share that we’ve made the difficult decision to stop our new development work on Anthem (aka Anthem NEXT),” BioWare executive producer Christian Dailey said in a recent blog post. “We will, however, continue to keep the Anthem live service running as it exists today.” Anthem launched nearly two years ago and was met with poor reviews, with the main criticism stemming from a lack of content, subpar story, and repetitive gameplay. A year following its release, BioWare said it was invested in improving the game with seasonal updates. But last year, then-general manager Casey Hudson said that it would pause short-term updates to reinvent the entire game. It was reported last May that an incubation team of about 30 people was...
    MANCHESTER UNITED beat Newcastle 3-1 to go back into second place in the Premier League. The Red Devils opened the scoring through the impressive Marcus Rashford who rifled a shot past Karl Darlow at his near post. Times Newspapers Ltd 6 Marcus Rashford celebrates opening the scoring at Old Trafford Reuters 6 Welsh speedster Dan James scored his second goal in as many games Allan Saint-Maximin got Newcastle’s equaliser as his shot squeezed into the corner of David De Gea’s goal after Harry Maguire failed to clear the danger with his header. The sides went in level at the break but Welsh speedster Dan James struck United’s second when the ball fell kindly for him after a tiny flick on from Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese midfielder secured the three points when he converted form the spot after Arsenal loanee Joe Willock had tripped Rashford.

    3 National Guard members dead in Black Hawk crash in Idaho UN court takes on Iran-US sanctions case How Tampa Bays run game could upend the Chiefs dime defense in Super Bowl LV There was this interesting and somewhat hilarious theory back when Patrick Mahomes started lighting the NFL up that if you just ran the ball a lot and controlled the clock against the Chiefs, you’d be alright, because limiting Mahomes’ time on the field limited the Chiefs’ scoring opportunities. © Provided by Touchdown Wire We’re over that now, right? Good. Now, back to our Super Bowl previews. When the Chiefs and Buccaneers faced off in Week 12 and the Chiefs won, 27-24, it’s not as if running the ball was a priority for Tampa Bay’s offense anyway. Kansas City shot out to a 17-0 lead, Tom Brady threw 41 passes, and Bucs running backs Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones II had just 12 rushing attempts between them. But here’s the thing: On those 12 rushing attempts, Jones and Fournette gained 76 yards. Jones was the relative force...
    New York Giants: How would drafting Jaylen Waddle transform the offense? By: Alexander Wilson January 29, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditIt is no secret that the New York Giants have one of the weakest offenses in the NFL, based on their 17.5 points per game during the 2020 season. Losing star running back Saquon Barkley in weaken 2 against the Chicago Bears significantly hurt their chances at even mediocrity. Coordinator Jason Garrett struggled to get things going with a lack of talent. While he did manage to spur a decent run game, which averaged 110.5 points per game behind a suspect offensive line, the passing game ranked 29th in the NFL in yards per game at 189.1. Second-year quarterback Daniel Jones threw just 11 touchdowns, one year after throwing 24 in his rookie campaign. While Garrett didn’t do himself any favors regarding his passing attack, the running game earned him another season, most likely. However, this off-season represents a great opportunity for the Giants to upgrade the receiving corps, whether it be in free...
