    PITTSBURGH (AP) — John Harbaugh went for the win. The gamble cost the Baltimore Ravens and kept the Pittsburgh Steelers in the mix in the AFC North.

Pittsburgh ended a three-game winless streak behind the 39th fourth-quarter comeback engineered by Ben Roethlisberger.

    In the movies, it’s so definitively clear, that dividing line of inspiration, the before-and-after picture of the light bulb turning on to change the way a player performs and sometimes a team looks. On the football field, there’s no light bulb. No inspirational change. There’s just technical work on drills, day after day, until again Sunday Jaelan Phillips broke blocks on successive plays in the third quarter and chased down New York Giants quarterback Mike Glennon like a slow-moving gazelle on the Serengeti plains. “It’s just effort,” the Miami Dolphins defensive end said, before repeating, “It’s just effort.” It’s noted, too. On the Sunday rookie receiver Jaylen Waddle broke the franchise record for catches in a first year with 86, Phillips broke the rookie record for sacks with 8 1/2.

    To say that the Prince of Wales’ relationship with his sons is complex is an understatement. Both William and Harry have historically accused Charles of being a ‘laissez-faire’ father – one more preoccupied with weighty affairs of state and his considerable philanthropic legacy than bathtime, wrestling matches and bedtime stories. It’s not entirely fair, of course. The reality when it comes to the Royal Family – as with any family – is always more complicated. Like other royals, Charles was ‘deeply, deeply’ hurt at the manner of Harry and Meghan’s bitter exit from the family in 2020. Still, as Harry and William’s relationship descended into acrimony, their father tried to remain a non-partisan figure – partly because Charles has always shied away from personal confrontation with his sons, but also because he genuinely wanted to retain a Swiss-like neutrality between them.

    Prince Harry has risked another public rift with his father after claiming he raised concerns about the donor in the ‘cash for access’ scandal. The Duke of Sussex said last night he had ‘severed ties’ with Mahfouz Marei Mubarak bin Mahfouz a year before Prince Charles presented the controversial Saudi billionaire with a CBE. Harry said he had ‘concerns’ over the businessman’s ‘motives’. He made the comments after it was revealed that he had held a private meeting with Mr Mahfouz, who has given tens of thousands of pounds to charities associated with the duke. The billionaire is embroiled in claims that he showered money on charitable causes close to the Prince of Wales in the hope of obtaining an honour and British citizenship. Harry is said to have become concerned about Mr Mahfouz in 2014 and wound down their relationship the following year, having met him twice. But in an extraordinary statement which could spark a family rift, Harry said he had no involvement in what he described as the ‘CBE scandal’, insisted he had concerns about the Saudi businessman’s ‘motives’...

    BARINAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on Sunday named a former foreign minister as his party’s candidate for a special gubernatorial election in the home state of his predecessor and mentor, Hugo Chávez, that was scheduled after the opposition contender in November’s regular contest was retroactively disqualified. Maduro declared Jorge Arreaza as the ruling party’s candidate via a livestream connected to a gymnasium in the rural state of Barinas packed with supporters who erupted in cheers as their new candidate promised them a comprehensive review of their communities’ needs. The announcement came less than a week after the country’s highest court disqualified Freddy Superlano as he was leading the vote count, a move that has become emblematic of what the opposition says are unfair election conditions. The state in northwest Venezuela has long been considered a bastion of Chávismo., which made Superlano’s potential win particularly hard to swallow for the ruling party. Superlano was ahead by less than 1 percentage point in the Nov. 21 race against incumbent Argenis Chávez, one of Hugo Chávez’s brothers, when...

    Brian Kelly’s untimely departure from Notre Dame has certainly ruffled a few feathers and among them is legendary college basketball announcer Dick Vitale.  Vitale, who made his return to the broadcasting booth this month after announcing his cancer diagnosis in October, took to Twitter on Friday to call out Kelly and Lincoln Riley for their decisions to move on to different college football programs.   BRIAN KELLY’S FAREWELL TO NOTRE DAME LEAKS OUT IN VIRAL VIDEO "Brian Kelly & Lincoln Riley leaving [Notre Dame] & [Oklahoma] / wonder how can u just walk away from players that gave heart/soul/blood to at the most vital time of the year," he wrote.

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was no fan of LeBron James’ flamboyant celebration last week when the NBA superstar helped the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Indiana Pacers. It was one of James’ last games before he was put into the NBA’s health and safety protocols because of a positive coronavirus test. James would later have subsequent negative tests that allowed him to return to the team.

(Andy Lyons/Getty Images) When James hit the shot against the Pacers, he imitated Sam Cassell’s "big balls" dance. Abdul-Jabbar said someone like James shouldn’t be doing those kinds of celebrations. "For me, winning is enough. Why do you need to do a stupid, childish dance and disrespect the other team on the court? It doesn’t make sense. GOATs don’t dance," the Basketball Hall of Famer said in a SubStack commentary video on Wednesday. ...
    In the span of the past two months the Miami Dolphins have transformed from one of the NFL’s worst teams to one of its hottest. Miami’s 20-9 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday wasn’t pretty, but the outcome extended the Dolphins’ winning streak to five games. Here are some more takeaways from Sunday: Dolphins back in playoff picture You can argue it’s the caliber of opponents or talent level of the opposing quarterbacks the Dolphins have faced the past five weeks, but don’t undermine the fact that Miami has played complementary football for the past month. That’s the main reason Miami has won five straight games. No matter how you slice it, Brian Flores took a team that had a seven-game losing streak and has them back in the playoff hunt at 6-7 heading into this week’s bye. — Omar Kelly Tua Tagovailoa continues to be efficient Tagovailoa wasn’t sharp, but he was good enough to deliver a victory Sunday.
