Kyler Murray’s hideous INT put Cardinals in big hole

The Arizona Cardinals‘ night was already going really bad, and then it reached ridiculous levels on one of the worst plays you’ll see a quarterback make in the playoffs.  The Los Angeles Rams led 14-0 and had the Cardinals backed up, facing a third-and-7. Kyler Murray went back to pass and held the ball an impossibly long time looking for a receiver. Eventually linebacker Troy Reeder got to Murray and started to wrap him up for what would have been a sack and safety. It got worse.  Murray… Source link

Nets’ Kyrie Irving sticking with COVID vaccine decision

Though the Nets could definitely use him, especially now with Kevin Durant sidelined with his MCL injury, Kyrie Irving isn’t going to change his mind on receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. Irving insisted on Monday, after their 114-107 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, that he wasn’t going to budge. “I’ve made my decision already and I’m standing on it,” Irving said, via Nets Daily’s Matt Brooks. Irving, of course, is one of the last coronavirus vaccine holdouts in the NBA and is still… Source link

Odell Beckham Jr. continues his hot streak with TD

Odell Beckham Jr.‘s dad was right, after all.  Beckham’s time with the Cleveland Browns lacked many big plays and ended in a messy way, after a rift with quarterback Baker Mayfield that included Beckham’s dad posting a video of how often his son was open but didn’t get the ball. The Browns cut Beckham, and the Los Angeles Rams were aggressive to get him.  It has worked out better for the Rams than they could have reasonably expected.  Beckham is back to looking like one of the game’s better… Source link

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has sprained shoulder

Jimmy Garoppolo started Sunday’s win over the Dallas Cowboys with a torn ligament in his right thumb. Before it was over, he suffered a sprain to his right shoulder. Now, he’s dealing with both as the San Francisco 49ers prepare to face Aaron Rodgers and the top-seeded Green Bay Packers in Saturday’s NFC divisional-round playoff game.  Head coach Kyle Shanahan updated reporters on Garoppolo’s status on Monday. He described the shoulder sprain as “slight” and expects Garoppolo to practice and… Source link

Steven Adams carries Bulls’ Tony Bradley from Ja Morant in fight

Steven Adams went all out to protect his point guard on Monday afternoon. Adams, late in the Memphis Grizzlies’ 119-106 win over the Chicago Bulls at FedExForum, actually picked up Bulls center Tony Bradley and carried him away from Ja Morant after the two got into an altercation. Though Adams is a large man himself, he seemed to have zero issue whatsoever carrying the 6-foot-10, 248-pound Bradley. Bradley was given a flagrant foul on the play, as he appeared to trip up Morant as he drove… Source link

Warriors disavow co-owner’s Uyghur commentary

The comments gained social media traction on Monday, including this post from Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter Freedom: “Nobody… Source link

Novak Djokovic can’t play French Open without vaccine

It’s another day of bad news for Novak Djokovic. The No. 1-ranked men’s singles player might not be allowed to play at the French Open, the next Grand Slam on the schedule, because of his vaccination status.  Djokovic lost his appeal on Sunday to play in the Australian Open, closing a nearly two-week long saga over his unvaccinated status and attempt to enter the country with a visa and exemption. It is the first Grand Slam on the calendar as he chases a 21st Grand Slam victory that would… Source link

NCAA basketball: Wisconsin’s Johnny Davis now

As conference play in college basketball starts to pick up, two players from the Big Ten have jumped to the top of the odds board for national player of the year. And one of those players wasn’t even on the board in early December. That player is Wisconsin sophomore Johnny Davis, who has tripled his scoring average from last year. As a freshman, Davis averaged 7.0 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. This year, he is up to 21.7 points and 7.5 rebounds per game for the Badgers, who are currently… Source link

Cowboys lost more penalty yards than 4 teams ran for

If there’s a word that can sum up the Dallas Cowboys‘ 2021 season it’s this: discipline. As in, a lack thereof.  The Cowboys watched their season crater in Sunday’s NFC wild-card loss to the San Francisco 49ers, and it happened in perhaps what should have been predictable fashion. Sure, the end-of-game execution on Dak Prescott‘s failed QB sneak and spike was big. But there’s no way we can overlook the impact of the huge holding call in the first quarter (see below) or the delay of game… Source link
