Chase Elliott didn’t earn the win, but he possibly took a big step in becoming a championship race-car driver Sunday at Martinsville Speedway.
Elliott raced well at one of NASCAR’s toughest tracks, roughed up a past champion to take the lead late and then minced no words as he retaliated against a veteran whom Elliott felt took his potential first career win and a spot in the championship away from him.
Plante is credited as being the first NHL goalie to wear a mask, and there’s something really creepy about the simplicity of it, in sort of a Michael Myers, Halloween way. Even creepier: Plante’s face was frequently scarier-looking than the mask that covered it.

New teams provide a fresh marketing template for the NFL, of course, and the league should have another tool in the new Tottenham Stadium, set to open in 2018. The NFL participated in its design and is under contract to play at least two games there Authentic Michael Ferland Jersey annually once it is ready. Capacity at Tottenham, it’s worth noting, will be 61,559 — more than 20,000 fewer than at Wembley and 15,000 fewer than Twickenham.
In the backdrop to those issues was another growing pain. The primary app for UK GamePass users has not always worked. And according to the Independent, the third-party company that developed the app admitted to posting fake reviews that overstated its effectiveness. Ultimately, the NFL offered refunds that equated to about $36 per customer.
Sure, Wilson had 451 passing yards and four touchdown passes in the Seahawks’ breathtaking comeback victory over Houston on Sunday. But he also had 30 of his team’s 33 rushing yards, and each of those four touchdown passes tied the game or turned a deficit into a lead. Seattle’s defense is the leakiest we’ve seen it in years, the Seahawks can’t run the ball a lick, and the offensive line is, as it is annually, a wreck.

The Broncos, Cowboys, Bears and Seahawks just might be, and those are Philly’s next four opponents. But the Eagles are absolutely in the driver’s seat in the NFC East, and while Dallas is a defending division champ with a monster offensive line, Elliott’s an MVP-caliber talent who’s going to be missed.
Their 8-1-0 record leads the NHL in points percentage (.889), and they have Curt Schilling Authentic Jersey the fewest goals allowed (19) and the second-best goal differential (plus-14) in the NHL entering Monday night’s game at the New York Islanders. Vegas is the first team in NHL history to win eight of its first nine games in its inaugural season.
Now, don’t read me wrong here. This isn’t to say the Bills are on the verge of some changing of the guard. The gulf between these two franchises is so huge that Niagara Falls could pour into it for the next 17 years and not fill it. During Buffalo’s 17-year playoff drought, New England has made the playoffs 14 times (including each of the past eight seasons), won five Super Bowls and gone 29-5 in head-to-head games against Buffalo. The Patriots are basically the opposite of the Bills.
But if those 6-2 Patriots, who lost their best defensive player to injury last week, are inclined to check their side-view mirror, they might find that the Bills are closer than they appear.

While the Astros and the New York Yankees both won all their home games in the seven-game American League Championship Series, the Dodgers and Astros have been less predictable in the World Series. The Astros won Game 2 in Los Angeles, while the Dodgers picked off Game 4 at Houston.
Limited Mens Gordie Howe Jersey Anything goes in L.A. on Wednesday night.
This series has been back and forth, two incredible teams trying to get to the finish line, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. And so now, obviously it’s good for our sport. … We’ll get back to the hotel, where we’ll collect ourselves. Both teams will be ready to play with about as much energy as you could possibly imagine in Game 7.
Major League Baseball had a change of heart heading into the 2017 season, and the Los Angeles Dodgers will now try to use it to their advantage.
With the All-Star Game Cody Ceci Authentic Jersey no longer deciding which league has home-field advantage in the World Series, the Dodgers turned the best record in baseball this year into the opportunity to host a Game 7 of the Fall Classic if it ever came to that.
It will now come to that after the Dodgers upended the Houston Astros 3-1 on Tuesday night in Game 6 of the World Series. When the first pitch of Game 7 is thrown Wednesday at Dodger Stadium, the field will be surrounded by 54,000-plus mostly Dodgers fans in a ballpark where the club did most of its damage.
Limited Mens Ryan Suter Jersey On the field, the emotions run high, with a special intensity seen in the hitting and the trash talking. Boone Pickens Stadium, with its cozy confines, adds another element to the game atmosphere, complete with a group of students who call themselves the paddle people, situated behind the visiting bench.
“I think the big games bring out the best in him and he’s playing with a lot of confidence right now,” Jets forward Blake Wheeler said. “We’re trying to do a good job in front of him, letting him see pucks, and he’s making some big saves so that keeps you in games.”
Hellebuyck stopped 11 shots in the third as Winnipeg was outshot 12-2 in the final period.
Connor opened the scoring 7:10 into the first. Mark Scheifele tipped defenseman Tyler Myers’ shot from the point and the puck fell right to Connor. The line of Connor, Scheifele and Blake Wheeler have accounted for five goals in the past two games.
What could be Elliott’s last game until mid-December turned in the second quarter when Dallas’ Tyrone Crawford blocked Nick Rose’s field goal attempt and Orlando Scandrick returned it 86 yards to set up a 1-yard Elliott TD run two plays later. Instead of the Redskins (3-4) leading 16-7, the Cowboys went up 14-13 and never trailed again.
“That block was huge,” Prescott said. “That might’ve been the turning point and just the key play in the whole game.”
Washington QB Kirk Cousins lost one fumble and kick returner Chris Thompson lost another. Cousins was 26 of 39 for 263 yards and a 1-yard TD pass to Josh Doctson that cut it to 26-19, but Rose missed the extra point and Dallas sealed it with an interception return for a touchdown by Byron Jones with 21 seconds left.
Signed to fill in for injured kicker Dan Bailey, Mike Nugent was wide left from 49 yards on his first attempt for the Cowboys. Nugent, who worked out for the Redskins last week when they decided to sign Rose to replace the injured Dustin Hopkins, shook it off and made field goals from 36, 48, 27 and 37 yards in the second half.
Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell has been arrested after a female food delivery person alleged he pointed a gun at her.
Maxwell was the only player in Major League Baseball this year to take a knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.
If you’re looking to avoid stadium food, or want to have a sit-down dinner after a game, The Scarlet Oak is a popular pick. (It’s also pretty popular for boozy brunches, so if you want to start your playoff pregame with multiple mimosas at 1PM鈥攁nd really, who doesn’t?鈥攖his is the move.)
The Reviews: From 6/15/2017: Food, friends, fun, all a stone’s throw away from Nationals park and the waterfront. What more could you want? From 7/11/2017: The restaurant seemed to be a popular post Nat’s game destination & without the restaurant being unbearably crowded.?
It was the company’s first sales decline since it went public in 2005. Earlier this year, the company had its first operating loss.
Authentic Kids Ethan Pocic Jersey One of the few bright spots on the company’s earnings call was when Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank talked about the businesses generated by endorsers such as Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry and golfer Jordan Spieth.
We’ve got a tremendous opportunity with a franchise like Curry, Plank said.
Womens Travis Frederick Jersey
Under Armour’s Curry business rose to about $200 million Authentic Mark Recchi Jersey in sales in 2015, but faced a tough 2016 due to lack of success of the Curry 3 shoe.
We’ve applied the lessons from the Curry 1, 2, and 3, and we’ve put them into the Curry 4, Plank said.
A limited release colorway of the Curry 4 launched in China earlier this month, with the first mass colorway launching last week in the United States.
We’re seeing incredible demand, Plank said.

Derrick Mason, a wide receiver who played 15 seasons in the NFL, has been charged with felony aggravated domestic assault and misdemeanor vandalism.
Yasiel Puig Authentic Jersey Roush Fenway is expected to scuttle Biffle’s #16 team, and that could make that team’s charter available to the highest bidder – including the new JTG Daughtery entry. Despite fielding full-time teams for Biffle, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Trevor Bayne, Roush Fenway hasn’t won a race since 2014. By loaning Buescher to JTG Daugherty next year, Ford Racing will be able to work on upgrades with Roush Fenway while keeping one of its young drivers under contract. It was a mutual agreement, Biffle said. It’s been frustrating for everyone.
The Orlando Magic have declined the fourth-year option on forward Mario Hezonja, the fifth overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, league sources told ESPN.
Hezonja, 22, will become an unrestricted free agent in July. The option would’ve guaranteed Hezonja $5.2 million in the 2018-19 season.
The Magic had discussed several trade scenarios in the past several months, including conversations with the Sacramento Kings over the weekend, but no deal materialized, league sources said.
The decision to allow Hezonja to become a free agent next summer has a mutual benefit for a new front office who didn’t draft him, and a player and agent who are eager for Robert Quinn Jersey a change of scenery and a chance to prove that Hezonja can justify the interest that exists for him elsewhere. The option still exists for Hezonja to re-sign with Orlando.
Authentic Bryan Bulaga Jersey The Seahawks came away with a thrilling 41-38 victory over the Texans on Sunday, but cornerback Richard Sherman had nothing but praise for Houston’s rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Sherman shared a long hug with Watson after the game, which saw Watson throw four touchdown passes and 402 yards. After the game, Sherman shared with the MMQB what he said to Watson in that moment.
‘You played the best game any quarterback has ever played against us, and we’ve played all the legends. I respect how you hung in there and kept battling and battling,’ he said.
Interestingly, Watson had three interceptions on the day, with Sherman picking off two.
He has gotten the ball out quickly to a variety of targets on short-to-intermediate routes. He gets back to his running form of old when needed. He has done it all while dealing with injuries and inconsistency in his receiving corps.
Rivers has a no-trade clause, but if Earl Thomas III Womens Jersey the 35-year-old becomes convinced that the Jaguars are much closer to competing for a championship than the Chargers are, he should consider waiving it. Besides, he can easily afford a tricked-up express jet to allow him to commute coast-to-coast in less time than it takes to navigate LA traffic.
Authentic Len Dawson Jersey It’s the worst team in the NFC against the best team in the NFC. The fact that the Eagles have a short week won’t matter much, because the 49ers are flying a long way after a home loss to the Cowboys. Carson Wentz will keep building his MVP case against an overmatched San Francisco defense, while rookie C.J. Beathard is disrupted by another strong front.
Veteran defensive end Dwight Freeney has agreed to a deal with the Seattle Seahawks, the team announced Tuesday night.
Freeney, 37, was in Seattle on Tuesday to work out and take a physical for the Seahawks. He later tweeted he’d joined the team.
While Bush has been waiting for a call that may or may not come, he has started planning for his post-football future.
He is starting to put together some business deals, dipping into eSports and also doing some broadcasting work as he’s watching football on Sundays instead of playing it for the first time since 2005.
With Jackson’s team now 0-7 after a frustrating 12-9 overtime loss, it’s more evident that the coach is a big part of the problem and isn’t contributing to the solution. And now that he’s 1-22 overall in less than 1 1/2 seasons at the helm, it’s also clear the Browns need to make a change before 2018, and maybe sometime soon in 2017.
Jackson came in with a lot of promise last offseason as an accomplished offensive mind and respected motivator, but as the team remains in its massive rebuild, he has mismanaged games and failed to maximize the talent he does have.
Week 7 against Tennessee brought his decision to turn back to rookie DeShone Kizer at starting quarterback over Kevin Hogan. Then, despite Kizer (12-of-20 passing, 114 yards, zero sacks) throwing better downfield (even with two interceptions), Jackson decided to bench him midgame for the second time in three weeks — this time in favor of Cody Kessler instead of Hogan.
It was the first touchdown of the night for a Philadelphia offense that was struggling to get going prior to that throw. Hollins capped the touchdown with a really solid celebration too.
Elite Mens Stephen Anderson Jersey The 49ers suggested Matt Breida would have a larger role in their running game in Week 6. In reality, Carlos Hyde converted the only two 49ers RB red zone carries into touchdowns. As long as he’s healthy, Hyde looks like the 49ers’ primary back.
The Cardinals may face the Rams without star CB Patrick Peterson, who re-injured a quad. Arizona has allowed the second most passing TDs (13) in football, and Kupp leads the Rams in red zone targets.
The Chiefs should be confident. Smith is having the best season of his career, with 1,391 yards, 11 touchdowns, and zero turnovers. He’s not missing many passes, either:
The Chiefs drafted Patrick Mahomes in the first round this year, making it clear that Smith wasn’t a part of their long-term plans. But Smith has reacted to that with a career season, and he’s gotten his name firmly in the MVP conversation because of it.
Elite Andrus Peat Jersey Blair Walsh had a somewhat shaky outing for the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, when he went 1-2 in field goals, but missed Jason Pominville Womens Jersey a 37-yarder that had Seahawks fans raising eyebrows. Considering most of the Seahawks fans first knew Walsh as the man who gifted them a playoff win by missing a chip shot when he played for the Vikings, you can understand why they might not be convinced that he’s their solution at kicker.
You might be asking: Why would the Seahawks sign the player who had a completely memorable and catastrophic meltdown against them?
FPI is … kind of in on the Chargers? It has them as the 17th-best team in the NFL going forward, sandwiched right between the Texans and the Raiders. Not bad for a 2-4 squad. The scores of their games show why. Their four losses were a three-point loss at the Broncos, a two-point loss to the Dolphins, 14-point loss to the Chiefs and a two-point loss to the Eagles. They were all close aside from the game against the best team in football.
Authentic Womens Bob Lilly Jersey Stopping the clock made no sense at all. The Erik Walden Jersey point of the drive wasn’t just to score; it was to make sure that Rodgers had as little time as possible when he got on the field. It was a near-perfect nine-minute drive that became fatal because of an ill-advised pass that took six seconds off the clock.
Even scoring the touchdown was counterproductive. If Dallas had done it perfectly, Prescott would have stopped at the 1-yard line and milked the clock as much as possible.
It was the first quiet game of Kareem Hunt’s young career, but the Chiefs leaned on the rookie in the fourth quarter and he bullied the Washington defense to put the game on ice. Other running backs took notice.
Darnold is eligible to stay in college and not hit the NFL draft until 2020, but it’s difficult for a player to pass on a chance to be the No. 1 pick and get about $20 million guaranteed.
Jon Bostic Mens Jersey
Miss the plane, he said in a non-smiling attempt at humor. We did things that bad football teams do. Right now, we’re a bad football team.
The lesson is we’ve got to start faster. We’ve turned into this team that looks like gangbusters in the fourth quarter, but does not look like gangbusters in the first quarter. It’s a four-quarter game. We’ve got to start faster.
Tampa Bay’s defense will regain linebacker Kwon Alexander, who missed the past four games with a hamstring injury. Including a four-game suspension at the end of his rookie season in 2015, the Bucs are 1-7 without Alexander in the lineup.
