Andy Nesbitt For The Win Published 11:27 PM EST Dec 3, 2018 Mark Sanchez, to the delight over everyone on Twitter who's not a Redskins fan, made his return to the field Monday night after Colt McCoy left with a season-ending injury. And it didn't take long for Sanchez to delight those on social media because this happened: The ol' butt fumble ... recovery! The original Butt Fumble, of course, became one of the NFL's most infamous plays when Sanchez ran into his own offensive lineman on a Thanksgiving night game against the New England Patriots in 2012. On that play he lost the ball in comical fashion and watched the Patriots take it back to the house. Sanchez being involved in a butt fumble recovery Monday night didn't go unnoticed by Twitter: Unfortunately for Sanchez, his amusing fumble recovery came in another loss for the Redskins. … [Read more...] about Mark Sanchez gets butt fumble recovery on Monday Night Football

Newcastle United capped off a perfect November by claiming a first away victory of the season as they defeated Burnley 2-1 at Turf Moor. Here’s what we learned from a memorable night in Lancashire for United... 1. Rafa springs a tactical surprise in Dummett’s absence Paul Dummett’s injury during the international break was a bitter blow to Benitez, given the lack of depth Newcastle have on the defensive flanks. Despite having considered playing Javier Manquillo at left-back, Benitez opted to bring Clark in for Dummett – and completely change United’s formation. Seemingly Benitez decided that having an extra centre-back on the pitch would given United greater strength to deal with Burnley’s physicality and the home side’s aerial threat, too. Interestingly, not only did Clark come into the side but, with Dummett, Jonjo Shelvey and Jamaal Lascelles all out of the team due to injury, the Irishman also wore the captain’s armband given that he … [Read more...] about All Monday Night Football games should start at 8.30pm
Welcome back to the NFL Fun Power Rankings, where we value excitement and intrigue over wins and losses. This list is all about working out which NFL teams are worthy of your busy eyes, and which deserve to be rolled up in a carpet, set on fire, loaded into a big rocket and blasted off into the sun. There were quite a few movers and shakers in week 11 - a week which saw the Chiefs and Rams play out one of the greatest games in NFL history, Lamar Jackson make his first career start, and the Raiders win a football game. I know, anything really is possible. Here's how we stand heading into Thanksgiving, aka the day which officially marks the beginning of the 'business end' of the season. 32. New York Jets (down 1) Good news: For the first time in weeks the Jets weren't utterly abject on Sunday. Bad news: That's only because they were on a bye. All the early season optimism has faded from New Jersey, and if you watch their last few performances back it's hard to see how they've got to … [Read more...] about NFL Fun Power Rankings, week 11: Where do Rams and Chiefs stand after Monday night’s record-breaking showdown?
Sal Maiorana Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Published 12:09 AM EDT Oct 30, 2018 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Once again, we were reminded of how nearly impossible it is to win in the NFL, or really, any sport, if you can’t score. Not that the New England Patriots did a whole lot of scoring Monday night at New Era Field. But it was enough to beat the inept Bills, who continue to possess perhaps the worst offense in the franchise’s 59-year history. If it wasn’t so sad watching this team try to run and pass, you’d have to laugh at the comedy show put forth week after week. The final score looked lopsided at 25-6, but this was a game that was right there for the taking as Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski were not the usual purveyors of death and destruction we’ve seen for oh so long in this non-rivalry. The greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL made some throws like he always does, and Gronk caught a few like he always does, but it certainly … [Read more...] about Monday Night Football: Buffalo Bills blown out by New England Patriots
