Uh, the MLB has a L.
C s and the NLCS currently going on right now, so I'll give you guys the latest with that on then.
Obviously, college sports, especially college football.
There has been some news this past week with some tough things going on there.
So and obviously to finish off.
If I have any more headlines, Thio tell, you guys will make sure to So.
But let's quickly go now to NFL.
We'll start with the NFL here, and let's just quickly go to the week.
Week five recap.
There was no Thursday Night Football game tonight, as it normally is, but because there's so much NFL shuffling going on with all the other games going on, Uh, but especially with the Chiefs who have just played, uh, you know on Sunday.
But the Titans and Bills, the Bills were gonna be the most effective because they just play to this Tuesday Night Football game because the Titans, obviously I haven't had that outbreak, and they wanted to make sure they could get the guys ready to go, um, and then apply, which I did.
But let's go to the last week's recap games.
So this past Thursday, the Buccaneers and the Bears, the Bears one of the final score, 22 19 This past Sunday, the final scores were.
So the Rams 30 against the Washington football team, who had 10 points.
The Eagles lost to the Steelers by the final score, 38 to 29.
3 Cardinals defeated the New York Jets, 32 10.
The Raiders going went into Arrowhead Stadium and had a huge upset against the Kansas City Chiefs.
By the final score, 42 32 the Houston Texans finally get their first one on the board.
In the post bill of Ryan error, they defeated the Jaguars 30 to 14.
The Ravens blew out the Cincinnati Bengals, 27 to 3.
The Falcons not gotten one, winning it on their schedule.
They fired their head coach, Dan Quinn, and they lost by the final score.
That 16 to the Carolina Panthers, who have been a great, surprising story so far under the play quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Then the Dolphins.
Completely, I mean, completely destroyed the 40 Niners in San Francisco by the final score, 43 to 17.
Thebes, Dallas Cowboys, Even though there was tough, gruesome ing news regarding the injury to dock Prescott.
And just like Thio Thio, all Cowboy fans and not a cowboy fan, I'm a Patriot fan, but it's tough to see anybody, especially for a guy like that who's struggling first Depression.
He was in a contract year, one of the best football quarterbacks I have seen play the last few weeks, and I think he's gonna get better as a quarterback.
He just had a terrible, gruesome injury that happened to him. Prayers.
I know you're gonna come back stronger than ever.
And obviously to the Cowboy nation, I'm wishing for the best that he can come back and be the same guy or be the best.
The best ability can't be because you never want to see a guy go down like that.
But Andy Dahlen, who's the backup to dock, uh, you know, told Deck that I could put it on my shoulders and come back after that was done.
They will get a scoring drive at the end, a couple of big place to Michael Gallup and was able to get to the game in field goal.
They defeated the New York Giants.
Still not wanna game.
Final score there, 37 34.
Dallas The Cleveland Browns continue to stay red hot.
So far down in Cleveland.
Uh, they want against the Colts, 32 to 23 then a great, UH, game for Sunday Night Football, the Vikings and the Seahawks.
A great, orchestrated final drive by the play of Russell Wilson, D K.
Metcalf continues to press us right in front of our eyes, is going to continue to become one of the best up and coming receivers in this league.
The Chargers and Saints, charged with a huge lead once again like that against Tampa Bay, couldn't get the job done.
Jew Breeze came back and won by the final score of 30 to 27 the Tennessee Italians had a great statement after they only really had a couple days of practicing due to their covert outbreak.
And they defeated the Buffalo Bills by the final final final score of 42 to 16.
So those were the final scores from this past week.
Now let's get into the games that are be coming up this weekend, and this will be now Week six of these of this covert NFL season, so I'll get into each backup and I'll go through my pecs So the Bronco's are taking on my New England Patriots.
That came was supposed to be last weekend.
But as I talked about on Tuesday night Patriots this past Tuesday, I kind of got into the details about that.
Um, so they're playing this Sunday at one o'clock PM and I'm picking the Patriots to win this game.
The Texans are Titans.
I'm picking the Titans, the Browns and Steelers and picking the Steelers, the Ravens and the Eagles.
I'm picking the Ravens, the Washington football team, against the Giants.
Uh, I'm picking the Giants, Lions and Jaguars.
I'm going with Lions, Bangles and colts.
I'm going with the Colts.
There is a Panthers.
I'm going with the Panthers in this game and then four o'clock juts out.
Dolphins among the Dolphins Packers.
That box? I don't know. The pack has been great.
I'm actually going to go with my God, Tommy Thio winning concerned Rogers on Sunday, something with the box and I'm really close.
Game right down to the wire.
Um, some of our football Rams Niners.
I'm taking the Niners, Chiefs and Bills.
I'm picking the Chiefs and the Cardinals Cowboys.
I'm going with the Cardinals, so those are my game picks for this weekend.
I'm going to start here on Thursday and Sports Madness to tally up. How radio.
And I'll tell you guys how I do the following week and see if my results continue to make any progress are are.
Obviously, if they're kind of similar, we're just not doing so good.
I'll tell you guys how I do, no matter what happens next Thursday.
But those are my picks for this weekend and we'll see how the games go, hoping my Patriots will come out on top.
There's obviously a lot of other good games here on top of this Sunday, so we'll we'll see how it goes.
Uh, some good news, sir.
Quarterback Cam Newton UH reserve defensive tackle Bill Murray.
I was on the practice squad and defensive player of the year.
Stefan Gilmore returned to practice today after they've toasted positive work over 19 early last couple weeks.
There, Cam Newton was removed from the coma 19 list.
Ah, very good sign for us Patriot fans as we had to deal with quarterbacks Brian Horror in charge set amount in Kansas City.
This best we can R C getting Cam back brings dimension to the team that they've done a really good job so far earlier on the season, and we'll see if he can lead us to another victory on Sunday.
The Patriots also practice the first time since last Saturday they've been off for a couple of days and doing a lot of virtual stuff.
They want to make sure that they are clear and ready to go for this game on Sunday.
Who? The speaker of the Patriots, the team, their face and the Broncos.
They're started running back Melvin Gordon this past this past Tuesday.
I believe he was charged with a D u I He was at practice today, but coach Vic Van Joe and still not sure if he will be playing or not on Sunday against the Patriots.
More news here, Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said.
Oh, no, Beckham Jr hasn't sent home with an illness, and this day and age and you have to be very careful.
So fancy doesn't added that he doesn't want to assume anything, but with all the cover 19 protocols he wanted, Thio keep Hey wanted to say safe about it was not too smart.
Vikings Dalvin cook Fantasy owners think, you know, asking about how Donald Cox doing.
He did not practice today.
I'm not sure in terms of how status is going to be the rest of the weekend, but obviously, that's tough news so far.
The Falcon Tad, uh, one.
Coaches coaching personnel, I believe, test positive today for Calvin 19 their status of their game against the Vikings is, uh, so far it's game on.
There hasn't been anything change about that.
The big news of the this past week that wasn't Covic news or just football.
Uh, you know, matchup news.
One of the best backs a long time, I would say in the past.
And I think it says a lot left.
The Jets cut Libyan Bill running back from their team, and today he signed a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.
They just needed Maura offensive firepower for a guy who was one of the best backs at in Pittsburgh, obviously, with the pretty tough the way he did it, you know, pretty tough.
You know, things the way it went in, uh, in New York.
I mean, I don't blame him on Adam.
Cases just complete mess over there.
And actually, I heard today I was watching it today that a lot of these guys post Adam Gates wherever they move towards think about, uh, I'm thinking about it.
Um, Jordan Phillips.
A Dolphin Adam case was under him.
There was also, think devante Parker, you know, he was He was really, really good.
Ever since Gates left Robby Anderson.
Obviously, he was a He was a former jet who was under gays, too.
So they're doing a lot of things once gaze has gone on.
And obviously, I hope that living on Bill those Well, I think obviously, Clyde Edwards hilarious.
So that the carries there, But I think that will do, you know, how do you read? Know Yankee reading him in a very good offensive minded coach.
Hey, will definitely get some scheme and packages with a couple of things for Libyan, so I'm excited to see what happens there.
The Falcons fire Dan Quinn.
He did send a very respectful letter to the Falcon Nation, basically thanking him for everything he did over there.
I know it was a Pats fan.
He, uh you know, we beat his Broncos after they're up 28 to 3.
Sorry to remind anybody that's not a preacher friend about it.
That was a Falcon fan, But I do.
I do hope the Falcons are able to turn around.
I really like Matt Ryan.
He was a B C guy.
I think it's a very good, respectable quarterback in this league.
Dan Quinn, I think, really did what he can to keep his job for a little bit longer.
But it just didn't turn out to be the way it wanted to be, and they wanted to go somewhere different, so that being said, they fired him.
I also want to send my condolences to Ah, former charging 20 understand out who passed away today.
I believe he was 68 that was Hall of Famer Fred Dean.
I was trying to figure out what position he played, but just especially in a very tough year with all the tragic stuff that's been happening, this is obviously another guy, a legend that that we lost here and that was NFL Hall of Famer Fred Dean.
It was a former charger in 40 to understand out was 68.
I send my condolences to his family during this time, Uh, Davante Adams, who hasn't been out there for the for the Packers and Crazy.
I think they haven't really needed him the last couple weeks because Aaron Rodgers has been one of the best in the league so far.
But he is on track to play this Sunday, and obviously prime time game against the Buccaneers.
I think, would be a very big welcoming sight and also welcoming sight for one of my fantasy teams who might need who might need him.
Which is kind of which one of my teams struggling right now without him, but he is on track to play on Sunday.
Other NFL news The NFL this past Monday that was disgusting.
A post season bubble, obviously, the big stuff.
Covert outbreaks and the cases that have been going on the last several weeks.
People want to know.
Should there be a bubble put in place? Shouldn't there not be now? The answer.
You guys, I've always thought about potentially.
There should be one.
But the players, first of all, aren't going to, you know, be away from their families for so long for several weeks of the season.
I do think, though, if they want to go to the postseason bubble, it would be have to probably a week right before the wild card round.
I have some also some news, which might help for some rearrangements if they have to get to this.
But there is gonna be no probable this year.
They announced this week.
This last couple of days, and I I've never been a probable person whatsoever.
I've just never seen the point about it.
I know there's a lot of great players in this league that they don't make the Super Bowl.
They silicon mingle and talk to some other teammates.
And it's a game, really that you could just, you know, go out, have some fallen.
Obviously, science monographs do whatever that, but they're going to do some activities.
I still think that week.
But it also, though, if teams have to make up games outside of all these games that have already been splashed around.
I'll tell you God's how the way it's been going with that because that za headache for I've been seen.
But you know this bubble would cost a lot.
I just think that it would just be a lot for for a lot of these teams, but that's pretty much well.
All the other leagues are able to get through the season by, you know, you look at what the NHL did.
You look at what the MBA did with their bubble sites situation on, they got through the season.
I think that the baseball was able to get a postseason bubble.
There was a couple of breaks early on in their season, but they basically rob Manfred actually, one of the good things he did, because there's not many things that I really appreciate it from Rob Manfred.
But he was able to get the guys going with the yellow be bubble, which has been fantastic so far.
But even though they've actually allowed some fans who has actually been kind of cool for, then I'll see us, Um, but the bubble of thing has been great for baseball, as there are completing their season as we speak there, almost down there in the championship.
Siris on the world.
Siri's obviously is a soon but just with the bubble.
Alan Sills, the NFL chief medical expert.
He was talking about how, uh, you know Jennifer has been discussed in the postseason bubble with Dallas and play, which is 18 T Stadium and so far stadium the new stadium in in L. A.
Uh, and the house will be in Texas for there's a TV studio.
Um, I don't mind it by any means that they do this, I think, will be, I don't know, you know, in terms of the families will be involved able to go in.
I think that's been something that for these other leagues that the players really, really are hoping for.
That they've been able to get is to get their families in because it's been obviously very taxing that they can't their families in the watch their teams play.
But for the NFL, uh, you know, I would think that if they do have a bubble, that they would allow some families to go in and watch and maybe even allow some fans because obviously revenue, especially in in the NFL, is, uh, a lot.
Uh, but as a neutral Roger Goodell is that it's been extremely critical to adopting, have changed this year, they have been talking about potentially delaying the Super Bowl on.
That might be something that they should try to think about doing anyway.
Another thing NFL is doing, which I think that they should have done a long time ago.
But they're doing it as a test of the players for Kobe, 19 on game days.
I believe they were testing them every other day besides game days.
And I think that what the way that these cases been going and, you know, players getting positive tests, you know, left from right here.
They want to make sure that you know that they delay that they test them right on game day and hopefully that the results come back a lot better for a lot of these teams.
Uh, vice President Troy Vincent spokes past Tuesday saying that they want to complete the 17 week game schedule, but they will keep that 18th week open.
That's been rumored in the last couple of days.
Is that you know, even though with all these scheduling moving parts that's been going on, if there's teams that have already had to make up games and they've already used to use their bye week, but it's like, what better way is it to just play after the other weeks air done that 18th, we will definitely be put into play.
I think that probably has something like that.
So but the 18th week is that right now is pretty much put into question, but I do expect it to be there, down, down, down the road.
Alan still said that the goal of the NFL Kobe 19 approached him is to mitigate but not eliminate, the risk of infection and then work quickly to isolate infected people to prevent an outbreak.
Moving to a bubble, he suggested, could cause more distress than it prevents.
That was just something I was questioning a little a little bit there.
But obviously he knows Ah, whole lot more than I do.
Um Coach Sean Payton, head coach of the Saints, a member of the league competition Media voices support for the idea of a plan in the playoff bubble.
Try events in the NFL Executive vice president, Football Operation Knowledge Tuesday that the idea remains under consideration.
But the lead in the NFL Players Association peer discussed this inclined to institute a season long bubble anytime soon.
Uh, eso said something that is not because when people talk about a bubble is a human and emotional and behavioral health toll that that takes on the people.
Imagine any of us being sequestered away from our families, all our loved ones for three or four or five months on end.
That's a really significant stretch point.
I think that we have to acknowledge that justice most of the health and safety consideration as it's called in infections and particularly want to talk about the holiday period that we've all grown to love and celebrate, which is not.
He's not wrong In that case, uh, for the report from Profootballtalk L. A.
Dallas could be to potential options and the bubble would be implemented after the wild card round.
So that's what I'd be potentially, um, okay, it was a little bit more from the bubble from this report on CBS Sports, basically saying why the bubble would make no sense.
They were basically saying 1248 Bubbles never made sense from beginning.
By the way, the infrastructure needed for a single NFL team to function is so great that there aren't enough facilities on this continent continent that could house in four teams together for understanding period of time.
The league wouldn't won't rule out the potential for a bubble in the postseason, but I don't think individual teams in the league itself would be in favor of moving teams.
Another home stadiums for the postseason.
Uh, for one, it would make the NFL poses an entirely neutral, which goes against the idea of the regular season battery for much.
Additionally, we're seeing we're seeing cities across the country warms the idea of allowing more fans at stadiums.
If that continues, it is not far fetched to believe in NFL hosting a playoff game could see.
Stint could see the stands at anywhere between 20 to 50% capacity, depending upon location and type of stadium, obviously open air and doing the person's for taxable groups.
Whatever sort of that economic of a city could impact from NFL team, most in playoff can be virtually wiped out of the league.
Took the postseason to Southern Cal or Texas Um, And then what could happen league DFLP.
It could eventually agree on placing players and hotels for as long as they are in the postseason.
That would be after the holidays, which would last least for six weeks and then eliminate most but not all risk of contracting the virus through community spread when the playoffs begin.
The weekend of January 10th and February 7th is unclear.
Roger Goodell stressed the flexibility will be critical.
And obviously, Benson said, that they wanted potentially by have a Week 18 and play.
All right, so I'm almost done with football here, and I just kind of talked about to recap of the games from last week, how the games were the matchups for this weekend and then, potentially, a playoff bubble that might be planning to play.
There's obviously news to with the addition of Libyan Bill, I was announced today, going to the candidate cheese, and that should always be something to look out for.
Um so there had to be a lot of moving parts because of teams that had some players with Cove it.
And so there's obviously more, uh, you know, this is my God, your head spin a little bit.
So obviously bear with me made my head spin, too, when I saw this.
But these air kind of the latest changes going on here with league.
So the Broncos Patriots is the first game that had to have some news.
It was supposed to be last Sunday at 4 25 the day before that game, or one or two days before Byron Cowart, a player on the Patriots, tested positive for Kovar, 19 The pages shut down their facility.
Next day, they kept it open for one day for practice, which is the full practice before today, which was the last one they did.
Um, and the Patriots decided Thio potentially have still the game going to schedule on this past Monday night at five.
But I'm Schefter said on this past Sunday that they're planning to move it to next week, which is now almost the end of this week.
And Patriots Broncos currently have earned the clear, I'd say, because Cam Newton, Stefan Gilmore and Bill Murray, I'm not sure about Brian Coward, But, uh, it looks like a lot of the guys were coming back that they need to get back and healthy.
The Jets of Dolphins moved from Week 10 2, Week six on their schedule, um, at four or 5 p.m.
Johnson Chargers moving from week 62 Week 11 on on Sunday, November 22nd at four or five.
Um, I mean, just try Thio, then the Chargers uh Jackson Jets of Chargers.
So just the Jets and Dolphins at Jets Chargers Moving from week 62 Week 11 on Sunday, November 22nd four.
Jags had CHARGERS Moved from week 82 weeks.
Seven on October 25th at 4 25 PM, the Chargers at Broncos moved from week 11 2 weeks.
Eight on Sunday, November 1st it four or 5 p.m.
The charges of Dolphins moved from weeks. Seven A week.
10 on Sunday, November 15th at four or 5 p.m.
And the Dolphins of Broncos moved from weeks six weeks.
11 at four or 5 p.m.
So And I'll get to the headline because there's a little bit in terms of, uh, kind of a team by team, kind of the latest on that.
But as you could just tell with this, it's just they're trying to play by the odds, and obviously they're moving all the parts.
You know, this is obviously all I would say, TBD, but they're just really doing what they can.
Um Alright, so that's baseball.
The Rays Astros play today earlier, um, and the Rays.
One, uh, not to raise.
The Astros won the razor up.
Three owned their Siri's and then the 3 to 2.
Now that next game tomorrow is a big pivotal game.
Uh, it really this serious has turned around a little bit here.
The Rays only need one more win to go into the world. Siri's.
But the Astros were making it tough.
They've won the last two games, and now they get the chance to bring their number.
One is from framer.
Those on the mound and, like Snow, will be able to go on the mound tomorrow.
But the Ashes have been able to get some timely hits.
And they've got a time here with Carlos Correa heading a walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Um, Randy, a reasonable whatever his last name is has been an absolute, uh, killer for all these teams. The postseason.
He's been great for the Rays, but the Rays have also need some more help and trying to get some more time.
And he had been really a struggle for last couple games here, but they will play again for a Game six tomorrow and let me look at the time of that game that is going to be at the slot of I'm sucking everybody.
That's the end of the five oclock slot for a air crash side tomorrow.
That's coming at 607 p. M.
Uh, prodding me on TBS like it always has been.
So make sure to watch that game tomorrow.
Thebes, Dodgers and Braves.
The Dodgers are currently down to one.
They had a blowout win yesterday, but now the Braves air currently blowing out the Dodgers, 71 as I'm watching it currently, right now as we speak.
Yeah, the Braves have a to one series lead.
The Braves somehow continue to hold on to this.
That would and the Dodgers just how they fly out.
They've got two guys on with one out on top of sentence, so they're trying to make it interesting here.
What the Dodgers someone will come back and win.
They will tie it.
This is a two to make it a very even Siri's.
But the Braves, when this when this game, they will have a commanding 31 lead in this Siri's.
But whatever happens, there will be a game tomorrow.
Uh, so obviously make sure you tune into that so both of these Siris are not done yet.
We will know here on Thursday.
Sports Madness Next week next Thursday.
What will be our world? Siri's matchup.
Everything will be done.
Um, a couple of quick things in baseball.
Uh, no more fake crowd noise.
Obviously, since March, it's been a as much as it's great to see you know, the fake cutouts.
After a while, you're in there.
This season, it's been great to see fans of the National League Championship Series.
Uh, they've been, you know, distance away.
It's obviously been a very, uh, you know, distant and obviously very small crowd compared to, you know, as as normal.
But it's great to see some fans in the building.
Um, you know, there's been a lot of home runs in the NLCS.
And to see live fans, some young kids trying to catch a baseball, it's like that just brings a little normalcy normalcy in me here it's always been kind of sad seeing the ball, you know, being out of the park with nobody out there trying to cash it so but it's been a great to Siri's of the Astros and raise have been great.
And then obviously the dives embrace two really good teams.
But right now the Braves really are taking it to the Dodgers here, Uh, in this in this magic today, I want to see how the rest of it girls.
Yeah, Korean baseball baseball, uh, in South Korea will see fans the first time in almost two months on Tuesday, this passenger growth around 2 20% capacity.
Um, there has been fans at NFL games.
Uh, potentially called basketball Might have, you know, a small fan group.
We will have to find out good news with the covert testing.
This was from about a week or two ago, but there were no positive testimony.
8000 and 96 samples collected in the week.
It will be collected 164,117 samples overall, of which 91 or 910.
6% tested positive.
57 of 91 positives have been players in 21 of 30 teams have had a person covered by the monetary test test positive.
And now the Dodgers.
And that's south of something I'm watching here.
Bases loaded with one out so braised trying to hold on to this, but I might get a little bit interesting here.
Uh, but that's really it for baseball.
I mean, there hasn't been a lot going on just because, you know, besides the games, really not a lot of things going on in baseball.
Uh, let's go the MBA because obviously we might finish a little bit earlier that we usually dio um, alright, eso Congratulations.
As I said on Tuesday or this past Thursday combat Today we will know the NBA Finals champion and congratulations to a Los Angeles Lakers for winning the 2020 n BA season.
They defeated the Miami Heat in four games to I'd like to congratulate LeBron James and Anthony Davis for for a great, phenomenal season and for the Lakers.
Now they tie with my boss and Celtics four titles the most.
Are there any teams? 17 titles, LeBron James one another finals and finals, M v p.
And after the game that they want.
He said he wanted to lead to give them more respect.
Obviously, people arriving more the go to bed if you want to say it between him and Mad and Michael Jordan.
It was actually kind of cool that LeBron actually watched the Michael Jordan last dance.
Uh, but obviously they're they're legends, the greats.
And it's also great because, unfortunately, unfortunately, passion of Kobe Bryant.
Ah, legend that I've always looked up Teoh, one of the best basketball players I have ever seen.
I wish it was life.
Um, but they won this for him.
And as a Celtics fan, I could test.
I could totally respect the fact that they did it for him.
It just more than two basketball.
And for like, moments like this, I think that it it was pretty special to see.
Then pull it off.
You know the Angels.
Uh, that's why sports is so great.
Because even with tough tragedies, you know, toe pretty much the thing about as a Red Sox fan.
And you know, a lot of the Boston teams when the marathon bombing that unfortunately happened in Boston that that season in 2013 the Red Sox won the world championship.
Obviously, unfortunately, the news of Tyler Skaggs and picture from the Angels that next the game or two, um, you know, they honored him.
They threw a combined no hitter.
So it's like even though it's very tough news and very, very, you know, heart breaking news for anybody to see.
Sport has always been something that can bring joy to people in the fact that there's more to just the sport.
But it's also for playing for your team, your community, your city, Um, no matter what's going on, it's just a great thing for that.
Okay, I also like to congratulate Rajon Rondo, one of my favorite players.
She was actually a Celtic.
So just like family, like to Rondo, but something that I didn't know it.
But until the Lakers one was, he was the first player.
Uh, you know, at least that that I've known it from the current time here, toe win an MBA title with the Celtics and Lakers to win a title with both the Celtics and the Lakers, Rondo has declined his player option.
He's going to free agency.
There has been some, eh? NBA trade rumors already.
So buckle up, folks.
It is coming now because the NBA Finals is done.
There is some trade rumors going on everywhere it's all gone.
It's a couple that I've already seen so far.
Um, I also like to congratulate Miami Heat on a fantastic season.
