    NFL Week 12 grades: Eagles earn an ‘A-‘ for Sunday night win; Tom Brady’s Buccaneers get a ‘D’ for OT loss

    After giving us three crazy games on Thanksgiving, the NFL might have topped itself on Sunday with several wild games that went down to the wire.  In Cleveland, Tom Brady suffered a loss for the first time in his career in a game where his team was leading by seven or more points in the final two minutes of regulation. Before Sunday, Brady had been 218-0 in those situations, but that streak is now over after Brady watched his team blow a 17-10 lead in a 23-17 overtime loss to the Browns.  In Jacksonville, the Jaguars pulled off the most surprising comeback of the day and that’s because the Jaguars…

    A student catches a ball thrown by physical education teacher Amanda Knowlton after the Teens To Trails grant was announced Tuesday at Winthrop Middle School. Students won the $1,000 award to purchase outdoor equipment after logging in more than 187,000 minutes of outside time. Joe Phelan/Kennebec Journal WINTHROP — Middle school students assembled in the gymnasium this week for what they thought was for a dance and rock band performance.

    Men’s Rugby Claims Lt. Col. Kevin Shea Memorial Rugby Cup After Dominant Win Over Air Force

    Story Links Glendale, Colo. – The Lt. Col. Kevin Shea Memorial Rugby Cup is returning to Annapolis for the fifth straight season after a dominant 71-0 victory for Navy men’s rugby (5-0, 3-0) over rival Air Force.    “It’s always special to beat Air Force but even more special this year as we started with a young team and had a number of guys making their first varsity appearance,” said director of rugby Gavin Hickie. “I’m very happy that we managed the travel, altitude, weather and substitutes to ensure we picked up the pace in the second half and keep Air Force scoreless.”   The two squads remained in…

    What Air Raid? Takeaways from USC’s win over Fresno State

    Travis Dye won a Rose Bowl. He won two Pac-12 championships. He played for a third conference crown last year. But this USC team can top all those Oregon exploits, the running back said. Dye, a transfer from Oregon, doubled down Saturday night on his claim that this team is “the best team I’ve ever been on.” After the Trojans beat Fresno State 45-17 at the Coliseum, Dye said he’s “never played on a team like this before.” When asked what made the Trojans’ collection of big-name transfers tossed together by a new coaching staff different, he pointed to the group’s selflessness. “If we get the ball, it’s dangerous,” Dye…

    Deion Sanders and Jackson State win opener amid water crisis

    Just before the Jackson State football team entered Hard Rock Stadium through a tunnel next to the west end zone—to the tune of the program’s iconic theme song “Get Ready” played by The Sonic Boom of the South—Tigers head coach Deion Sanders looked his players in the eyes and set the mood for the 2022 Orange Blossom Classic.  “Adversity is going to come. Check it at the door,” Sanders said. Following the disappointing loss in the ’21 Celebration Bowl, JSU’s primary theme during the offseason was dominance—in every aspect of the game. But to fulfill that mission, Sanders had to make adjustments, bringing in new additions to his coaching staff as well as…
