Sixth practice day: Tyreek Hill leaves practice

On Thursday, the Kansas City Chiefs conducted their sixth session since padded training camp practices began last Friday. The big news is that star wide receiver Tyreek Hill left practice about midway through the session with an apparent leg injury, which happened when he pulled up after catching a long pass in a 1-on-1 drill (via ESPN). He walked off the field — where trainers appeared to be looking at his right leg — and then went inside. He did not return (via Kansas City Star). The Chiefs later said…

Washington Football Team Head Coach Ron Rivera has been diagnosed with cancer

The Islanders blew an early 2-0 lead against the Capitals in Game 4 when they had a chance to sweep them. In Game 5 they held a 2-0 lead from the midway point of the second period, courtesy of Anthony Beauvillier, and they weren’t about to blow it again. Beauvillier had the only two goals of the game until Washington pulled Braden Holtby for an extra attacker. The Isles scored two empty net goals to seal the deal and Semyon Varlamov ended up pitching a shutout for good measure as…

Cowboys news: Finding both in-house and outside the organization replacements for Gerald McCoy

The Cowboys will have to replace Gerald McCoy, the questions is whether to rely on in-house options or look to the outside world. Neville Gallimore and Trysten Hill will have to play major parts in Dallas’ defensive line rotation to keep Crawford fresh and healthy. Gallimore (6-2, 302 pounds) is a rookie third-rounder who has special linear speed and explosiveness. He projects to be more of a flash player early in his career, as his explosive first step will assuredly give some guards problems while his issues with taking on…

Can The Hurricanes Win The Stanley Cup With Mediocre Goaltending?

The Carolina Hurricanes are one of the least successful franchises in NHL history, boasting the third-worst win percentage of the expansion era. Only the Arizona Coyotes and the California Golden Seals/Cleveland Barons have been worse, the latter of which doesn’t exist anymore.1 Aside from a lone Stanley Cup win in 2005-06 — an admittedly extraordinary achievement for any franchise, let alone one of the league’s all-time worst — and an unsuccessful Stanley Cup Final appearance four years before that, there hasn’t been much cause for celebration since the Hurricanes blew…

Who Made The Most Of The NBA Restart?

The NBA playoffs finally started in earnest on Monday, though most of the league has been in a Disney World bubble since July for the season restart (which included eight games for every team, plus a play-in contest for the Portland Trail Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies). And what did we learn from that sample of games? For players on each team in the bubble, we crunched the numbers in RAPTOR — our new(ish) NBA metric — to see who played the best in the “regular season” portion of the restart,…

Why Are The WNBA’s ‘Home’ Teams Feeling So At Home In The Bubble?

As has become the standard, home teams in the WNBA wiped the floor with their visiting counterparts Tuesday night. The Sun crushed the Fever. The Storm routed the Liberty. And the Sky edged the Aces. WNBA home teams are now 41-25 this season. If that’s puzzling to you, since the WNBA is playing in a bubble in Bradenton, Florida — where “home” and “away” have nothing to do with travel — you’re not alone. “I personally don’t really feel a home-court advantage,” said Seattle Storm guard Jordin Canada. “We’re in…

The Raptors’ Defense Is Almost Never The Same, But It’s Always Really Good

In their second game of the 2019-20 season, the defending champion Toronto Raptors played the division rival Boston Celtics. Boston had struggled offensively in its season opener, scoring only 91.4 points per 100 possessions in a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, and once the game got underway, Toronto replicated much of Philly’s defensive strategy. The Raptors did not send a single double-team on any of the Celtics’ 19 isolation plays, per Second Spectrum (the Sixers had doubled on zero of 20 isolations). They played soft coverage, with the big man…

After Manchester City’s Big Loss, Who’s The Favorite To Win The Champions League?

FiveThirtyEight’s club soccer prediction model favored Manchester City to win the Champions League for most of the 2019-20 season. The Cityzens were so good, in fact, that they spent 62 percent of the season at the top of the model’s probability table.1 Only Liverpool (the current holders of both the Champions League and Premier League trophies) and Bayern Munich (the German champions for eight seasons running and perennial Champions League contenders) managed to leapfrog City as favorites to win this rendition of club soccer’s elite competition, but neither spent more…

Pat Mahomes named Dak Prescott among the quarterbacks that he studies to better his game

Pat Mahomes is among the best quarterbacks in the NFL and is easily worth the contract that the Kansas City Chiefs gave him, a deal that could be worth over half of a billion dollars. Mahomes is unreal. He’s entering his third season as the starter for Kansas City and already has a league MVP, Super Bowl, and Super Bowl MVP decorating his résumé. The proverbial sky is the limit for him, and the Cowboys will finally get their first look at him in 2021 barring a Super Bowl matchup…
