    Getty Andy Dalton of the Chicago Bears threw four INTs Week 13 in the team's 33-22 loss to the Cardinals. Andy Dalton didn’t even try to sugar coat it. The veteran quarterback for the Chicago Bears threw four interceptions in the team’s Week 13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals while filling in for injured rookie Justin Fields. It was the fifth time in his career Dalton threw 4+ picks, and after the game, he gave a frank and self-critical assessment of his performance. When asked if his first interception, a high and wide ball over the middle intended for receiver Jakeem Grant was a good throw, Dalton did not mince words. “No. I left it a little high and a little behind him,” the Red Rifle admitted. “The thing that is unfortunate in this league is that tipped balls usually don’t find the ground. They usually find the other team’s hands. We saw that three times today.” ALL the latest Bears news straight to your inbox! Subscribe to the Heavy on Bears newsletter here! Join Heavy on...
    AS match-winner Fred left the field at the final whistle, he saw a Manchester United fan holding a placard asking for his shirt. The Brazilian, 28, looked slightly surprised and embarrassed but obliged by handing it over. 2Ralf Rangnick has hailed Fred for his right-footed match winner against Crystal PalaceCredit: Getty 2Rangnick guided a new-look United to victory in his first game as interim managerCredit: Getty The understated midfielder is not used to being the hero of the hour. But the signs are he will be a key part of the Ralf Rangnick revolution, just as much as the big stars around him, due to his aggression and work-rate. Fellow Man Utd midfielder Bruno Fernandes said: “Fred has these moments — one shot per year! He deserves the praise. “He works a lot and people don’t really talk about him.” The Old Trafford faithful were talking about him as they made their way home last night though, even if he was the unlikeliest of match winners. Goals are few and far between for the Brazilian, although he does now have...

    There are changes on the horizon for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and that’s not the best news for the future of Devin Bush.  To say this season has gone off the rails for the Pittsburgh Steelers is to assume there were rails, to begin with. Expectations coming into the season were that Ben Roethlishberger’s likely final season with the team would end with a trip to the Super Bowl. Instead, this season has been a trip to the bottom of the AFC North and a Steelers team that is almost unrecognizably bad. Pittsburgh is 5-5-1, which means playoff hopes are still alive in a wide-open AFC field. But those hopes are on life support and the season is on the cusp of being lost. The Steelers are a game out of last place in the AFC North and the window to send Big Ben out on top is closing fast. That means changes are already being thought about by those both in and around the Steelers. Long time Steelers beat writer Ed Bouchette walked through a thought exercise in The Athletic...
    The Alabama football team needed a great performance from Bryce Young to be able to compete with Georgia. Young showed up and is having a Heisman moment.  Alabama football’s Bryce Young is performing at a remarkably high level against a historically good defense with some of the highest stakes possible. Young is almost certainly having his Heisman moment as the Crimson Tide clashes with the Georgia Bulldogs. In the first half against the Bulldogs, Young threw for 286 yards and two touchdowns while also running for 40 yards and another score. He’s been remarkable on seemingly every single opportunity, showing up and helping Alabama score 24 points in one quarter against a defense that typically permits fewer than seven points a game. What Young is doing will put Alabama in perfect position to compete for a national title and he’s been playing at this level for most of the year. It just happens that now he’s doing it against the best defense in the country on an enormous stage in a game with incredible stakes. He’s performing at an impressive...
    SAN FRANCISCO — Klay Thompson’s return is getting closer by the day, and while the exact timeline remains vague, the Warriors shooting star provided an update Friday during his typical commute to work, from the deck of his 37-foot fishing boat. “When am I gonna be back? Hopefully within the next few weeks, man, that’d be really nice,” Thompson said while live-streaming on Instagram. “Maybe a month.

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields is not expected to return from his ribs injury Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, but one of his fellow rookies could potentially see his first NFL game action. Bears coach Matt Nagy named quarterback Andy Dalton the starter and Nick Foles the backup for the Week 13 game at Soldier Field, saying Fields is making progress but wasn’t ready to be medically cleared to play. Meanwhile, the Bears have cleared rookie offensive tackle Teven Jenkins to be activated 3½ months after he underwent back surgery. Jenkins, the No. 39 draft pick out of Oklahoma State in the spring, returned to practice Nov. 15 and is feeling good, Nagy said. Nagy indicated Jenkins — for now — will be offensive line depth behind veteran left tackle Jason Peters and rookie right tackle Larry Borom, but he also could be used on the field-goal/extra-points team or in special situations. Nagy said a rotation with Borom midseason might be too difficult to execute. “When you draft a guy you’re always anticipating how he’s going...

    Getty Russell Wilson (left) and Pete Carroll (right) remain question marks heading toward the offseason. Given the Seattle Seahawks’ dismal chances to make the postseason, the focus has turned back to Russell Wilson’s future with the team. During an interview on ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown, Wilson was once again asked about his future prior to the team’s Week 12 loss to Washington. The quarterback was asked what needed to happen for him to be a “Seahawk for life” given his frustration with the organization last offseason. “We’re focused on right now,” Wilson told ESPN. “I think the best thing we can do is just go focus on this game. Go win this game. That’s what our mindset is, it’s not anywhere else. The best thing you can do as a player is just focus on the moment, right now. “I know it may sound cliche or whatever, but it’s the truth. It’s the only way you have a chance to be great.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Al Horford is as mild mannered as they come. The Celtics big man made it a point to downplay the “revenge” aspect of Wednesday night’s game against his former team, but it was evident from the jump that Horford had a lot of extra juice against the Philadelphia 76ers. They are, after all, the team that gave up on him just one year after he signed a four-year, $109 million deal with the team. Now he’s back in Boston on that very contract, and Horford and the Celtics couldn’t be happier with the arrangement.

    Sports fans often complain athletes have gone soft and hard-nosed coaches are a thing of the past. But that’s only because they don’t watch enough Arkansas-Pine Bluff basketball. 33-year-old Solomon Bozeman is in the middle of his first season as head coach of the Arkansas-Pine Bluff men’s basketball team. Wednesday night, Bozeman’s college basketball squad was getting blown out by Iowa State 44-24 and the head coach was furious. With 18:20 left in the second half, Bozeman signaled for a timeout and shockingly made his team run sprints on the court, in front of everyone. Surely expecting their coach to draw up a play or make a substitution, the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions men’s basketball team instead started running baselines. I’ve never seen this before. Arkansas Pine Bluff’s head coach called a timeout last night just for his players to run baseline to baseline.

    Cowboys’ star running back Ezekiel Elliot tells media he has been playing injured and hasn’t been given any time to heal up During media availability on Sunday afternoon, Ezekiel Elliott took a question about his lack of playing time and use in the Dallas Cowboys offense. Zeke’s response addressed that concern, but also shed some light on the running back’s health. Elliott told the media that during the Cowboys’ Week 4 matchup with the Carolina Panthers his knee was injured and he has been struggling ever since then. He says it supposedly gets stiff, but he is working to manage and push through the injury. Elliott would then go on to explain why he has not taken time off to deal with this injury. According to Zeke, none of the coaching staff or medical staff have approached him and suggested he take time off. Elliot expands further, saying he does not believe the possibility of him getting rest for his injury has even come up. Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott injured his knee vs. Panthers on Oct. 3.

    THIS is the astonishing moment a Norwegian club's goalkeeper took a dive to get his OWN team-mate sent off. The red mist well and truly descended in the dying stages of the clash between Kristiansund and Viking. 4David Brekalo shoved his own goalkeeper Patrik GunnarssonCredit: Eurosport 4The goalkeeper theatrically fell to the floor during the Norwegian top-flight clashCredit: Eurosport 4The keeper was left on the turf holding his throat and chestCredit: Eurosport Despite being 3-2 up, tempers flared between Viking centre-half David Brekalo and his keeper Patrik Gunnarsson. The pair screamed at each other before Brekalo delivered two shoves to the chest of the Icelandic custodian. It was after the second of these that Gunnarsson fell theatrically to the floor. But it seemed to do the trick, as the referee flashed the red card to 22-year-old Brekalo, who was fuming with the decision. During the incident Brekalo had to be pulled away from the keeper, 21, by his team-mates. Over the years there have been a number of cases of warring players from the same team.

    Michigan Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh credited the pre-game trash talk for inciting his team to beat their closest rivals, Ohio State, for the first time in 10 years.    Saturday's victory likely puts the Wolverines into the top four of the upcoming College Football Playoff rankings.  Meanwhile, Harbaugh revealed that the team was especially motivated in the 42-27 thrashing by some of the trash-talking that had occurred in the week prior to the game.  'There's definitely stuff people said that spurred us on. Sometimes people that are standing on third base think they hit a triple, but they didn't,' Harbaugh told the Columbus Dispatch.  Ohio State head coach Ryan Day, center left, shakes hands with Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, center right, after an NCAA college football game in Ann Arbor on Saturday Ohio State head coach Ryan Day, pictured, on the sideline in the second quarter of an NCAA college football game against Michigan in Ann Arbor on Saturday.

    MANCHESTER UNITED earned a hard-fought point at Chelsea in their first Premier League game after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's sacking. Jadon Sancho scored his first Premier League goal for the Red Devils after he pounced on Jorginho's error. 1Jadon Sancho robbed Jorginho of possession before scoring his first Premier League goalCredit: Getty But Aaron Wan-Bissaka had a howler of his own as he gifted the Blues a penalty and an equaliser.

    Getty DeAndre Bembry, Nets (right) One of the surprising aspects of this season for the Brooklyn Nets—and there have been many—as been the play of the team’s defense, which has held opponents to 104.7 points per 100 possessions, sixth in the NBA. That’s made up for a decidedly so-so offensive performance from the team. The Nets rank 11th in the NBA in offensive rating, at 109.1. Last year, the Nets’ defense was unsightly for a contending team, allowing 113.1 points per 100 possessions, 22nd in the league. The offense was a juggernaut, though, with a rating of 117.3, first in the NBA. Credit for the improvement is in part coming from an unexpected place—star point guard James Harden, who has been more engaged this season than he typically is on the defensive end. And credit for Harden’s defensive improvement just might go to reserve wing DeAndre Bembry. Just ask Bembry and he’ll tell you. “If you want to win it’s always for the bigger picture,” Bembry said, per the New York Post’s Brian Lewis. “So I came in...

    Pennsylvania attorney general Josh Shapiro beat back at least 40 legal challenges to Donald Trump's election loss, and he explained how the twice-impeached one-term president undermined his own case. The Democratic attorney general told The Daily Beast's "New Abnormal" podcast that his office started making preparations for the challenges as soon as Trump trotted out his "Big Lie" well before the election, and he credits his team's success to that advance work. "When the former president began talking about how vote by mail was not okay and that the Democrats were going to try and steal the election -- all of his greatest hits -- I immediately put together a team in my office made up of lawyers from both our criminal division and our civil division," Shapiro said. "We basically had three focuses that we were trying to deal with first." State officials made sure voters had access to the polls and ensured voting was safe, Shapiro said, and they got ready for the challenges that Trump signaled were coming.

    Pete Buttigieg on Sunday again tried to shut down rumors of a feud between himself and Kamala Harris, saying his relationship with the vice president isn't affected by reports.

Rumors and gossip have swirled of tensions rising with President Joe Biden and the vice president amid reports this month of growing frustration between their teams.

    Isaiah Wilson’s off-field history, commitment to football and fitness all were major concerns when he signed with the Giants’ practice squad on Sept. 30. So it was encouraging on Wednesday to hear Andrew Thomas, Wilson’s Georgia teammate, endorse the practice squad lineman’s start with the team. “I think Isaiah definitely has his head on straight,” Thomas said Wednesday. “He’s trying to learn. He’s trying to get the playbook. We’ve sat down and had a couple talks because a lot of our scheme at Georgia was pretty similar. So just translating the terms was the biggest thing for him, and he’s learning pretty well.” Thomas also said Wilson, who played right tackle at Georgia, is adjusting to his move inside to guard with the Giants. “Moving him inside, playing a little bit more guard, he played tackle in college, so we’ll see how he does with that,” Thomas said. Wilson, 22, is a developmental project for the Giants. He is working on losing weight and getting in football shape, which will take time. He is not...

The eight-time Pro Bowler suffered a hamstring injury in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers that he thought was just a case of cramping. A later MRI showed he pulled his right hamstring, sending Peterson to the injured reserve list for a minimum of the following three games. Peterson has not been activated off injured reserve. However, he has detailed his recovery process on the All Things Covered podcast and appears close to playing. He posted a hype, entrance video on his Twitter account on Monday, hinting at a possible return in time for the Vikings’ Week 11 matchup with their rival Green Bay Packers.

    Iowa State coach Matt Campbell made some incredibly weird comments during his Tuesday press conference. The Cyclones head coach was asked about how many had the goal of winning the Big 12 entering the season, and Campbell made it clear that was never his goal. He just wanted them to be the best team they could be! (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) You probably think I’m being ridiculous because that’s an outrageous stance to have, but I can promise it’s very real. Give it a watch below. Matt Campbell knows a Big 12 championship was the goal of many, but makes it clear that it was not his goal.

It’s downright bizarre and fans shouldn’t be happy about it. Iowa State was expected to compete with Oklahoma for the conference title. Instead, they’re 6-4, unranked and Campbell is out here talking about just being the best...
    Getty Trent Brown To put it plainly, things didn’t work out well for Trent Brown during his one season with the Las Vegas Raiders. Not only did he appear to regress as a player, he also had an unfortunate, near-death experience that had him contemplating retirement because of the long recovery. On Tuesday, November 16, Brown told reporters he “almost died” after “an IV mishap.” The Athletic’s Matthew Fairburn tweeted a portion of the story.

    STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — With puppy Kaci on the leash eagerly pulling him along, Stanford men’s basketball coach Jerod Haase begins one of his regular cross-campus power walks that take slightly different routes depending on the day and how much time he can carve out of his busy schedule. The playful pooch, who turned 1 in September, tends to stop people and other dogs, or fountain hop to cool off and slow down the entire exercise mission — so she might not be allowed to go along if there’s a recruit to host later or a prospect to scout somewhere in a nearby gym. “She’s more part-human than dog, and we treat her that way,” Haase says as he ventures out on what will be a two-mile excursion through the sky-high trees and spectacular buildings that make Stanford an architectural treasure. Haase points to spots where he has made valuable connections with professors or other Stanford standouts, amazed at how VIPs seem to be at every turn at an institution like this. One friendship he’s formed is with Dr. Michael...
    It looks like Florida Gators head coach Dan Mullen knows he’s at a crossroads and that he can’t afford to have his team lose. Dan Mullen and the Florida Gators have underperformed this season and it’s evident that Mullen knows his team can’t afford any miscues the rest of the year. The embattled Florida football coach has drawn plenty of criticism for the way the Gators have struggled all season long and he’s aware that there are plenty of people who want to see him fired. Mullen is on the hot seat because his team hasn’t been living up to the standards that have been set in Gainesville. Florida hasn’t looked like a championship-caliber team, which is what Mullen was supposed to build. When asked if he feels like there’s pressure on him to win so that he could save his job, Mullen answered by explaining how that sort of pressure is always there in the SEC. Dan Mullen asked if he feels like hes coaching for his job, notes in his 13 years as an SEC head coach that...
    BOSTON (CBS) — It did not take Cam Newton very long to reacquaint himself to the Carolina Panthers. The quarterback led Carolina on a pair of scoring strikes against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon in his return to Carolina. Newton did not start Sunday’s game after signing with the Panthers earlier this week. But the 32-year-old replaced PJ Walker on a second-and-goal on Carolina’s first possession, and brought back memories of his first nine NFL seasons with the Panthers. Newton took a shotgun snap and quickly bounced outside, beating the Arizona defense as he leaped for the goal line. It was vintage Newton at work, and it put Carolina up 7-0.

    Getty LA Clippers wing Sindarius Thornwell defends Chicago Bulls star Zach LaVine during a 2018 game. Sindarius Thornwell’s time with the LA Clippers may have been relatively brief, but he certainly made an impression. When the team was in its first days post-Lob City, he was one of the players who helped it exceed expectations. And he did so as a rookie. Now, he’s looking to make a similar splash with a brand new team on an entirely different continent. Per an announcement from the club on Thursday, Thornwell — who will turn 27 on November 15 — has signed on the dotted line with Ratiopharm Ulm of the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL) in Germany. Thornwell’s most recent NBA action came last season with the Orlando Magic. He had begun the season with the New Orleans Pelicans, before earning a two-way spot with Orlando in May. In a combined 21 games in 2020-21, he averaged two points and one assist in 10.3 minutes per contest.Thornwell Made His Mark Defensively When He Got the Chance in Los Angeles ????????????

    Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said there were a few reasons why he played without a helmet throughout his 16-season NHL career. He felt the one he wore with the Ottawa 67s in junior hockey was too heavy for him and when he first entered the league in 1977, going without was not that uncommon for players of that era. Wilson also joked that perhaps he just wasn’t that bright. But the biggest reason why Wilson went without a helmet was that he wanted to be like his heroes. The great Bobby Orr never played with one, nor did Wilson’s older brother, Murray, a member of four Stanley Cup-winning teams with the Montreal Canadiens. “The players I looked up to and really idolized did not wear helmets,” Wilson said. “At that time when I broke in — obviously a long time ago — not many guys did.” Wilson, after a playing career that spanned three decades, will officially join his idols as hockey immortals Monday night when he and five other individuals are inducted into the...

    Jon Gruden is done coaching in the NFL, but he is not done with the NFL. The Raiders coach who resigned after it was discovered that he used racial and misogynistic language in emails with former Washington Football Team General Manager Bruce Allen sued the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell for orchestrating the “selective leaking” of the emails that led to his resignation.

(Photo by Chris Unger/Getty Images) “Jon Gruden has filed suit against the National Football League and Commissioner Goodell in the Eighth Judicial District Court in Clark County, Nevada,” Adam Hosmer-Henner, Gruden’s attorney, wrote. “The complaint alleges that the defendants selectively leaked Gruden’s private correspondence to the Wall Street Journal and New York Times in order to harm Gruden’s reputation and force him out of his job. INGLEWOOD, CALIFORNIA – OCTOBER 04: NFL commissioner Roger...
    The lawsuit argues that only a few emails were selectively leaked from the investigation to the Washington Football Team. "Out of 650,000 emails obtained months earlier in connection with the investigation into workplace misconduct by the Washington Football Team, Defendants weaponized a small subset that were authored by Gruden prior to his hiring by the Raiders," read the lawsuit. "Defendants then purposefully leveraged these emails to cause the termination of Gruden's coaching contract, endorsements, and sponsorships." Gruden was among the highest paid coaches in the league, with a $100 million contract over 10 years. The Raiders had a 3-2 win/loss record before Gruden's departure and they notched two victories and one loss since then to reach a 5-3 record so far this season. Here's a local news video about the lawsuit: Jon Gruden Suing NFL, Roger Goodell www.youtube.com
    By JOSH DUBOW Former Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden has sued Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL, alleging that a “malicious and orchestrated campaign” was used to destroy Gruden’s career by leaking old emails he had sent that included racist, misogynistic and homophobic comments. The suit was filed in district court in Clark County, Nevada, on Thursday, exactly a month after Gruden resigned as Raiders coach following the publication of his emails by the Wall Street Journal and New York Times. The emails sent to former Washington Football Team executive Bruce Allen from 2011 to 2018 during Gruden’s time as an announcer at ESPN included racist, misogynistic and homophobic comments. They came from a set of 650,000 emails obtained by the league in June during an investigation into the workplace culture of the Washington Football Team. Gruden’s attorney, Adam Hosmer-Henner, said in a statement that the defendants “selectively leaked Gruden’s private correspondence to the Wall Street Journal and New York Times in order to harm Gruden’s reputation and force him out of his job.” ...
    Ex-Sen. George Allen is one of several anti-LGBTQ extremists helping the Virginia governor-elect prepare for his new job. Republican Glenn Youngkin was narrowly elected Virginia governor last Tuesday after a campaign built on the argument that "the political insiders who have been running Virginia have failed us" and a promise to "rebuild a better Virginia for everyone who calls it home." But his newly announced transition team is filled with political insiders with a history of advancing discrimination. Youngkin said Wednesday that his "incredible transition team" would include former Republican Virginia Gov. and Sen. George Allen as honorary co-chair. Allen, who had a long history of racism and ties to white supremacists, lost re-election in 2006 after he was caught in a viral video using a racist slur at an event to refer to an Indian-American campaign tracker. In the notorious video, Allen called the 20-year-old tracker "Macaca" — a racist slur likening people with dark skin to monkeys — and sarcastically welcomed him to America. Allen has also spent much...
