The second penalty was for making contact with a referee during an altercation with a Titans offensive lineman. Two plays earlier, Burfict was called for a personal foul after hitting DeMarco Murray late out of bounds. Burfict was suspended for suspended for the first three games for an illegal hit in the preseason. Between suspensions that have cost him game checks and fines, Burfict has now forfeited just under $2.2 million during his career.
Roared on by a fervent Bulgarian contingent in the O2 Arena crowd, Dimitrov responded well to the setback, an excellent stop volley seeing him secure the first break of the third set to lead 4-3. "You come in and feel the weight on your shoulders, in a positive way". Serving for the match at 5-4, however, he wobbled again as a framed backhand beyond the baseline allowed Thiem a reprieve.

Quarterback Jay Cutler (22 of 37, 213 yards, two touchdowns, one interception and an 82.4 passer rating) often threw to spots that weren't even close to a receiver.

For the most part, today's Superstars have had to ply their trade on the independent circuit before earning a place on the roster, or at least come through NXT. Jake Hager - the man formerly known in WWE as Jack Swagger - is on his way to the world of MMA after signing a deal with Bellator . Bellator then quickly followed that up by posting a video of Swagger signing his contract.
While the defense has played well at times, it has failed to hold fourth-quarter leads early in the season and given up way too many big plays lately. I asked the the Giants player if he wanted to go on the record . "He's doing a great job". It's unlikely to happen if the results continue at their current pace.
General Yoav Mordechai, head of an Israeli defence ministry unit responsible for activities in the Palestinian territories, said in an Arabic-language video distributed late Saturday that Israel "destroyed a terror tunnel in Israeli sovereign territory".
Only three previous times have both leagues' Rookie of the Year been awarded unanimously : Benito Santiago and Mark McGwire in 1987, Mike Piazza and Tim Salmon in 1993 and Scott Rolen and Nomar Garciaparra in 1997.

Freeman and the Falcons agreed to an extension during the offseason to make him the NFL's highest-paid running back with a $41 million deal, featuring $22 million in guarantees. Unfortunately, Freeman is all too familiar with concussion protocol. Coleman rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown in Freeman's stead against the Cowboys.
They did inform me that he was set to be on the December 30 card and he will not be on it. But even by the promotion's standards, it would have been extraordinary if Conor McGregor escaped any punishment for his antics at a Bellator event in Dublin on Friday last.
The Cavaliers chose to take the train to commute back from Madison Square Garden after a shoot around, instead of traveling above ground and get stuck in traffic. Must've been a Knicks fan. "Trying to be like real citizens, man", Smith added. Instead, they did what most others do when in NY: took the subway.
Italy need to overturn a 1-0 playoff first-leg defeat against Sweden at the San Siro on Monday, if they want to avoid a potential national humiliation likened to the "apocalypse" by supporters.

Women's March organizer Linda Sarsour envisioned a future in which Colin Kaepernick is held up as a American Civil Rights hero in GQ's latest on the former football player. The signal caller, who has been surrounded by controversy over the course of the previous year, initially caused a stir when he kneeled during the national anthem last season while with the 49ers.
Nassar or going public with her accusations, reporters were not invited inside to hear. Why not look at what about the culture? What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up? "I'm really upset.
The Frenchman has not started a league game this season and has only been part of the team's Europa League and League Cup campaigns so far.

The Belgian experienced a blistering start to life at Old Trafford with 11 goals in his first 10 games but has since not found the back of the net in any of his last seven. "We can create more chances and goals". However, his recent performances have been fruitless in front of goal, with the forward also firing a blank against Chelsea last Sunday.
Gary Lineker recently took to Twitter to claim that the 29-year-old is "overrated", whilst large sections of Real's supporters have lashed out at Benzema this season based on his return of just 1 goal in 9 appearances. He likes to play with his first touch. Benzema admits Ronaldo is "more selfish than me", but insists he has no problem with that. "He's someone who scores 50 goals for you, so you say to yourself that he plays for himself, but if you look at the stats, he makes a lot of ...

The official announcement is expected to come sometime during the MLB GM meetings, which begin on Monday. He would replace John Coppolella after he resigned last month as a result of a breach of Major League Baseball rules regarding the global player market after two years on the job.
It's not easy to be the one to fill in for Aaron Rodgers . Prior to the Green Bay Packers taking on the Chicago Bears inside Soldier Field, many believed that this would be a low-scoring game. The Saints set a team record with six rushing touchdowns and had their third-highest rushing total in franchise history. It was the team's worst home loss since a 56-10 defeat against the New England Patriots on November 18, 2007, and the worst defensive performance under new head coach Sean ...
Sadio Mane has returned home from global duty with Senegal after suffering another recurrence of the hamstring injury that has kept him out of action for the past month.

I'm enjoying it in a way I haven't for a long time". What is bothering me is the rumours, so I want to tell you my side and for you to hear the words from my mouth.
It was the seventh time in seven years the Patriots and Broncos have met in the regular season. That led to 28-yard field goal from Patriots placekicker Stephen Gostkowski . The incident during the punt came on a night that had already been awful for the Broncos special teams.

On 3rd-and-4 at the Rams' 26-yard line, Savage went over the middle to Ellington, who he hit in stride.
Backup Scott Tolzien, who started the team's season opener and threw a pair of pick-sixes in a losing effort, would be the team's next man up if Brissett can't play.

Colts: Brissett did not come to the podium after the game because he developed concussion-like symptoms following, the Colts said.
He will be trying to keep Denny Hamlin , Ryan Blaney , Chase Elliott and Jimmie Johnson behind him all day. Pole-sitter and playoff driver Ryan Blaney led the first 10 laps before losing the lead to Elliott. Johnson's day ended early thanks to a blown tire just before the end of Stage 2 . Stage 2: Hamlin dominated the second stage and cruised to a stage win without any fuss.
ESPN reports that Goodell has requested in writing roughly $50 million per year, along with lifetime use of a private jet and lifetime health insurance for his family. Say what you want about Roger Goodell , but the National Football League commissioner apparently comes out firing at the negotiation table. As one unnamed owner (Jones?) told ESPN, "S$3 everal owners in this league who don't make $40 million a year".
Congratulations to both Cristiano and Georgina! "We are all very happy!" he wrote. She joins the family that recently welcomed twins Eva Maria and Mateo - who were born from a surrogate mother.

The conservative watchdog group 2ndVote also asked fans to "stiff-arm the National Football League".

Here's what to watch for when the teams kick off at 1. After a 38-yard pass completion from quarterback DeShone Kizer to Sammie Coates, Zane Gonzalez booted a 23-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead with 11:30 to go in the opener. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah is doubtful because of a back injury. Ironically, it seems the Browns might have their best chance for victory yet this season based on the game's early going.
We were the better team. But the plucky Irish gave as good as they got in the first leg and were only beaten by a very controversial penalty decision. The Norwich City keeper was called into action once more before the half-hour mark, keeping out Steven Zuber's low drive with his legs. Northern Ireland did extremely well to finish second in their tough Qualifying Group, finishing above the Czech Republic and Norway to end up second only to the unbeaten Germans, but they were then given ...
So I'll take as much back as I can. Bayliss expected Ball to be available for selection for the first test. "It has been a little bit of a concern for us for a little while", Bayliss said of the batting crashes. It is not a description Bayliss quibbles with, because with Cook it has always been a matter of content over style. Overton did not seek to hide away from those truths, as he reflected on his individual and England's collective showing - while CA coach Ryan Harris was happy to ...
Hi Nick. This answer is more complicated than it was a month ago given that Auburn doesn't really have an athletics director with Jacobs having announced last week that he would be stepping down, but in a vacuum, yes: I think Malzahn's tenure at Auburn would be over if he loses to both Georgia and Alabama for a fourth straight year.
Jones had said at his Monday and Wednesday press conferences that Guarantano's status was "probable" for the Missouri game.

Earlier the hosts lightened things up with banter about the CMA's edicts on avoiding controversial subjects, before launching into jokes about Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. This year's annual Country Music Awards was not marked by tragedy, but rather hope and some good ol' fashioned Nashville perseverance. Winners on the night included Chris Stapleton , Keith Urban, Jon Pardi, Little Big Town and Garth Brooks , who was named Entertainer of the Year .
Mr Trudeau is yet to explain why he got "cold feet", with some suspicion that upcoming elections in industrial Quebec may have contributed to his last minute hesitation to support the TPP. The plan was to tell him where Canada was coming from. Meanwhile, Liu Meng-chun (劉孟俊), an economist at Taiwan's Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research (中華經濟研究院), yesterday said the nation must find a way to join the TPP, and that it must avoid becoming marginalized while also seeking to strengthen its ...
Ohio State. Jonathan Taylor ran for 157 yards. MI (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) is on the road again next week against No. 8 Wisconsin , which defeated No. 20 Iowa 38-14 on Saturday.
