The Patriots will be missing 3 defensive starters vs. Detroit Lions

The Lions are catching another injury-related break. The Detroit Lions may not only catch a break with Darius Slay, who has reportedly cleared concussion protocol making him eligible (but not certain) to play Sunday night, but the New England Patriots’ injury situation could also help Detroit’s chances on Sunday. Late Saturday night, the Patriots downgraded three defensive starters to OUT, confirming that they will not play.

Instant Recap: West Virginia Cruises To Win In Big 12 Opener Behind Grier’s Five Touchdowns

This is how you respond in a conference opener after an unforeseen bye week After being slowed down by an unscheduled bye week due to Hurricane Florence, Will Grier’s Heisman campaign got a huge shot in the arm as the West Virginia Mountaineers dominated the Kansas State Wildcats to a final score of 35-6. Grier got off to what, I guess, could be considered a rocky start early, throwing an interception on West Virginia’s first drive of the game because of some miscommunication with wide receiver Marcus Simms on a deep pass. It wasn’t until West Virginia’s third drive of the game...

Mike Minor hits speed bump in loss to Mariners as comeback in Rangers rotation continues

ARLINGTON - Mike Minor had a bad start.This is news these days.Minor, the lone bright spot among Rangers' starting pitchers this season, failed to make it through five innings Saturday in a 13-0 loss to Seattle. Minor allowed three runs, all on Robinson Cano's fifth inning home run, but was a victim of a high pitch count."He didn't have his best command," interim manager Don Wakamatsu said.It was notable because it was only the second game since the All-Star break that Minor had allowed more than two runs in an outing.

Here’s all the information you need to know about “Sunday Night Football.” It’s not quite do-or-die season for the Detroit Lions, but it’s pretty much do-or-die season for the Detroit Lions. Sitting at 0-2, the local fans are bumming, confidence in the team’s general manager is at an all-time low, and another loss would essentially bury any hopes of playoffs and it’s not even October yet. Unfortunately for Matt Patricia and the Lions, the New England Patriots are in town, and Tom Brady is not happy. New England looked like a shell of themselves last week, as the Jacksonville...

Vikings have been dominant at home since U.S. Bank Stadium opened

When the Vikings moved back downtown after two seasons as guests at TCF Bank Stadium, they sought to blend modern comforts at U.S. Bank Stadium with the kind of jarring environment they’d created for opponents at the Metrodome. Eighteen games into their tenure at their new facility, they appear to be succeeding. The Vikings, who play host to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, are 14-4 at U.S. Bank Stadium, counting last January’s playoff win over the Saints. Their .778 winning percentage at home is the third-best in the NFL during that time, behind the Eagles (.842) and Patriots (.810). Since...
