Allen vs. Allen: The Week 9 Wrap-Up


Josh Allen vs. Josh Allen: Jags Shock Bills (9-6) to Lead Week 9’s Biggest Storylines


Week 9 in the NFL wasn’t without drama, and the biggest storyline of all was the stunning upset of the Jaguars over the Bills in a defensive thriller (9-6). Bills QB Josh Allen was battered all day long by Jags’ LB Josh Allen. The jokes flew all day long across the league. Jacksonville’s defender tallied eight tackles, one sack, a fumble recovery and an interception to lead a stout defensive effort. The Bills had scored 25-plus points in each of the last six weeks until Sunday’s stunner that kept them out of the end zone.

Luka Heroics Keep Mavs Hot


Luka Doncic Hits Game-Winner to Lift Mavs Over Celtics (107-104)


A full weekend of NBA action delivered plenty of stellar performances across the hardwood, but none better than Luka Doncic’s dagger 3 to bury the Celtics. After Boston rallied in the second half to tie things up with the Mavericks in the 4th quarter, Doncic delivered another iconic moment — a step-back 3 from the left-wing in front of the home fans. Doncic ended with 32 points in the win. The Mavs are winners of two straight and three of the last four.
