Thursday, December 5th, 2019

A year after staging a torrid stretch run to make the postseason in their first season under coach Frank Reich, the Colts (6-6) find themselves in a familiar position of needing to win their last four games to give themselves a good shot at earning another berth. The Bucs (5-7) have won three of four following a 2-6 start and vow to keep fighting until they are mathematically eliminated from contention. They're a team that's in the same situation as us,” Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians said.

Manchester City v Manchester United: a battle for ideological dominance

Thursday, December 5th, 2019

City has seen a Court for Arbitration in Sport ruling go against it as the club deals with charges that it breached UEFA's Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations. Over at United, fans remain concerned about the club's owners and their failure to deliver the levels of success they have previously enjoyed. Yet despite the tensions associated with the head-to-head and the perpetual financial waltz of trying to work within the constraints of FFP, a bigger battle is being fought out in Manchester – one that is largely anonymous though profoundly more important than anything that a single Premier League game can manifest.

After Week 8 of the NFL season, the Indianapolis Colts were sitting at 5-2, poised to contend for the AFC South after a key conference win over the Denver Broncos in the final seconds. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were just 2-5 after Jameis Winston's four turnovers cost them in a loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Wednesday, December 4th, 2019

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton told reporters Wednesday he is uncertain if he'll be able to return from his calf injury to play again this season.

Bucs’ Arians passes on discussing Winston’s future

Wednesday, December 4th, 2019

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston might have contributed to his team's resurgence down the stretch, but that doesn't mean he has the whole-hearted support of coach Bruce Arians looking past this season. Asked Wednesday how he would evaluate Winston and what he would tell team owners regarding the quarterback's starting status beyond 2019, Arians said, I'm going to pass on that one. I'm going to wait until the end of December.
