    Jay Cutler is endorsing President Donald Trump. The former Chicago Bears player, 37, reposted golfer Jack Nicklaus’s letter in support of Trump that described how “disappointed” he had become at the criticism the current president has faced and captioned it, “Never a doubt.” “He has delivered on his promises. He’s worked for the average person,” Nicklaus wrote in his letter. “In my opinion, he has been more diverse than any President I have seen and has tried to help people from all walks of life—equally.”

  • Ratings Crash 35% for Sunday Night Football, Lowest Week 7 Number Since 2011

    The NFL may be beginning to show signs of a ratings rebound for its daytime windows, however, primetime is still in the midst of a massive decline. The Week 7 edition of Sunday Night Football featured the Seahawks and the Cardinals, an exciting contest between two of the most exciting teams in the league. Though, the contest only averaged a 7.9 rating and 14.31 million viewers. That figure represents a 35 percent decline from last year’s Week 7 matchup between the Cowboys and the Eagles(12.2), and a 33 percent decline in viewership (21.45 million).

    This past week DeAndre Hopkins got into a bit of a dust-up with supporters of President Donald Trump. While heading to his team’s showdown against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night, Hopkins came across a caravan of Trump fans. The fans in question later accused him of flipping them off and driving recklessly, while he denied the latter charge. On Wednesday, footage emerged seemingly contradicting Hopkins’ claim.

    A few weeks ago, I was talking to a relatively high-level sports executive about the election, which is to say we were discussing something terrible Donald Trump had said or done. We agreed that Trump was likely to lose. “But he could always still win — even Nate Silver says that,” I remarked. The executive then said something that stunned me, though the more and more I think about it, the more sense it makes. “If Trump wins, or if he refuses to concede, I’m telling you right now: There won’t be any sports for a month,” he said. “Maybe...

  • Chiefs Are 20.5-Point Betting Favorites Over Jets, One Of 10 Biggest NFL Spreads Since 1976

    The phrase “any given Sunday” was coined by Bert Bell, who served as NFL commissioner in the 1940s and 1950s, and immortalized in a 1999 Oliver Stone movie by the same name. It represents the idea that any pro football team could beat another team, even as a big underdog. But Sunday’s matchup between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and 0-7 New York Jets puts the cliché to the test. The Jets opened Monday as 20.5-point underdogs, the tenth-biggest spread since at least 1976, according to sports betting outlet
  • NFL Week 7 betting roundup: One bettor put 23 bets worth $2.56m on four games. How did it turn out?

    One bettor at BetMGM had an extremely eventful Sunday. This particular bettor wagered a whopping $2.56 million (to win as much as $2.3 million) across 23 NFL bets on Sunday. And those bets were made on only four games — all of which were played at the same time. The bettor had seven bets on three games: Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Football Team, Detroit Lions vs. Atlanta Falcons and Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Tennessee Titans. There were also two wagers on the Green Bay Packers vs. Houston Texans game.
  • Game recap: Dallas Cowboys lose to Washington after QB Andy Dalton knocked out of game with concussion from illegal hit

    ...Dalton walked off the field late into the third quarter after taking a vicious hit from Washington linebacker Jon Bostic. He has a concussion and will be out for the rest of the game. The hit occurred on a third-down play with 6:32 left in the third quarter. Dalton scrambled up the middle on 3rd-and-10 and as he slid to the ground, Bostic lowered his helmet and hit Dalton’s helmet squarely. Dalton appeared to be knocked unconscious momentarily. Bostic was assessed with a personal foul and ejected from the game.

    A 29-yard field goal for a professional kicker — or a college kicker or most high-school kickers — should be automatic. Keep that in mind. On Thursday, a bettor made a big play on the Philadelphia Eagles-New York Giants game. He or she put $250,000 on the Eagles -3 in the first half. The payout would have been $488,095.25. OK, back to the 29-yard field goal.

    Joe Buck’s necessities for the next two weeks: one giant suitcase, two garment bags, plenty of room service and at least nine novel coronavirus tests. That’s the price of entry for the unusual stretch he is in, calling what could be 13 baseball games and four football games in 18 days. As the sports schedule has been scrambled this fall by the pandemic, Buck, the lead play-by-play announcer for Fox Sports’s baseball and football coverage, has seen his itinerary warped, too. Image without a caption “The silver lining in all of this, at least in my life, is baseball is...

    NY Post ^ | October 19, 2020 | Brian Costello
    The 2020 Jets are on pace to be arguably the worst team in NFL modern history. Let that swirl around your head for a minute. No, this is not hyperbole. The 0-6 Jets are heading toward finishing as one of the worst teams ever, maybe the worst team ever, barring a dramatic turnaround. The Jets have 10 games left, so there is time. But is there hope? Of the Jets’ remaining games, seven are against teams that are currently .500 or better. Two of those games against teams under .500 are against the Patriots. Does anyone expect the Jets to...

    FOX broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman don’t appear to be big fans of military pregame flyovers at NFL games. In a video obtained by Defector media, Buck and Aikman, who apparently didn’t know they were being recorded, could be heard on a hot mic before the start of Sunday’s Packers-Bucs game mocking the pregame flyover as a waste of money by the government. TROY AIKMAN: That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover. JOE BUCK: That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work! AIKMAN: That stuff ain’t happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll...

Well, Aikman may have a point if Biden makes it across the finish line.
