Tom Brady continues to lose annual Michigan-Ohio State bet

Saturday, December 7th, 2019

If it's at all possible to feel bad for Tom Brady when it comes to football, the days following a Michigan loss to Ohio State are sure to do the trick. The former quarterback of the Wolverines, 20 years removed from his alma mater, is still repping the maize and blue, and it's mostly to disastrous effect. Case in point: after last week's 56-27 thrashing at the hands of the Buckeyes, Brady was forced to momentarily swap sides and pose for an OSU photo with his Patriots teammates.

Chiefs head into Patriots showdown with ground game in flux

Saturday, December 7th, 2019

The Kansas City Chiefs will head into arguably their biggest game of the season Sunday in New England with the very real possibility that their leading rusher could be a running back that joined the team just a few days ago. For all the high-flying, record-setting performances by quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City offense, the one thing that has been missing for the better part of two years is a consistent ground game. The Chiefs have cycled through numerous running backs, tried wide receivers on jet sweeps and end-arounds, and even utilized Mahomes on scrambles and bootlegs, all with the same underwhelming results.

He's done a really good job for how much we've put on him,'' Cousins said. Cousins had a greater purpose in mind with his message, too, recalling a pick-me-up he received as a rookie for Washington when coach Mike Shanahan summoned him to his office for a positive review during spring practices.
