    After Thursday's 21–17 win over the Jets, Browns head coach Hue Jackson said he has to wait to "watch the tape" before deciding between Tyrod Taylor and Baker Mayfield on who will be the Week 4 starting quarterback. Rookie quarterback and No. 1 pick Mayfield came in before the first half ended when quarterback Taylor went out with a concussion. He led the Browns back from a 14–0 defecit for the victory.

    A Red Sox fan on his way home from Yankee Stadium died Wednesday when he tried to climb on top of a Metro-North train and was electrocuted by overhead wires, creating a chaotic situation where riders were trapped for more than two hours, MTA officials and riders said. The Metro-North train from Yankee Stadium to New Haven, Conn., left the ball field just before 11 p.m. on Wednesday. As the train was running from Larchmont to Mamaroneck about half an hour later, a pair of brothers tried to climb from inside a car onto the roof. Train personnel got one...

    Every weekend of college football is a good weekend. We say that all the time. And Week 4 could really put that to the test! There’s only one game between ranked teams who have actual chances of beating each other, we’re not exactly overflowing with rivalry, and But! Tune in. I count five pretty significant games, a decent number, and conference games are well underway, meaning all surprises matter doubly. And whatever, we don’t watch this sport to see important things take place. We watch to see hilarious punt returns.

    Jaroslav Bobrowski knows a good deal when he sees one. Accordingly, an all-you-can-eat offer at one sushi restaurant is no longer available to him. The triathlete follows a special diet in which he fasts for 20-hour periods. So when he does sit down for dinner, he tries to make up for lost time. But after devouring a staggering 100 plates at the Running Sushi restaurant in Landshut, Germany, as part of its $26 buffet deal, the restaurant declared him persona non grata. "When I went to the checkout, I wanted to tip, but the waiter did not want to accept...

    There are critical points about the 70th Emmy Awards to keep in mind, starting with this: The ceremony airs Monday. Typically held on a Sunday, it was punted one day so this year’s host network, NBC, could accommodate its “Sunday Night Football” franchise (New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys, for viewers inclined toward that spectacle). As for what the 8-11 p.m. EDT awards telecast will offer, the basics are 26 categories with nominees including defending drama champ “The Handmaid’s Tale.” It’s challenged by 2016 winner “Game of Thrones,” which aired outside the eligibility window for last year’s awards and wants...
  • 10 takeaways from a college football Saturday that went terribly wrong for the Big Ten

    In an 11-season stretch between national championships in 2002 and 2014, many of the Big Ten’s marquee programs found themselves wading through varying messes. Michigan couldn’t find the right coach after Lloyd Carr retired, Penn State’s program dealt with the Jerry Sandusky scandal and Ohio State navigated the ugly end of the Jim Tressel era. Everything changed for the Big Ten’s national perception in 2014. Ohio State stunned Alabama in the Sugar Bowl in the semifinals in the first season of the College Football Playoff. Urban Meyer led the Buckeyes to that first CFP title, and Ohio State reset the...

    America’s Team may still be America’s Team, but America’s Team isn’t drawing the same kind of eyeballs in their home market. Via Barry Horn, formerly of the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys generated a Week One rating of 28.2 in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for their road game at Carolina. That’s the lowest number since the Cowboys produced a 25.2 in 2009.

"At this point, it doesn't even really need to be discussed," Bird said. "It's come up. We paid attention to what happened with Minnesota not getting invited. Everyone knew when everything happened with Steph Curry and LeBron (James) on social media, all that stuff. We all pay attention and we watch.

    Umpire Carlos Ramos appeared to receive an apology from one of his severest critics on Thursday – as figures emerged showing that male players are penalised far more often than women for bad behaviour. The Portuguese official was pictured in Croatia talking with USTA President Katrina Adams, with witnesses claiming they overheard her saying sorry for the fallout over the Serena Williams sexism row in the US Open final. The conversation — prior to America's Davis Cup semi-final in Zadar — coincides with Sportsmail obtaining data from the last twenty years of Grand Slams displaying the misdemeanours of the two...
