Tom Brady gets away with bizarre double pass thanks to Rams declining penalty

  • Night net Buccaneers v Rams Rams Buccaneers American Football If you're looking for one more piece to Tom Brady's G.O.A.T argument, there's this: He completed two forward passes on the same play Monday night (one to himself), and they both counted (sort of).Brady attempted a pass early in the fourth quarter against the Rams that was deflected at the line of scrimmage and bounced right back into his hands. Then to avoid getting hit, Brady tossed the ball forward again, this time to Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans. It initially went down in the scorebook as a negative-9-yard completion from Brady to himself, followed by a 17-yard pass from Brady to Evans, netting eight yards. However, the official scorer eventually wrote that Brady wouldn't get credit for anything from the first forward pass following the decline of the penalty, resulting in just a bizarre eight-yard completion to Evans. A penalty flag flew immediately from a referee after Brady threw the ball forward for a second time. Each play from scrimmage is only allowed one forward pass, and that was a second on[......]

    NLCS Game 6: Here we go again?

  • The Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals will return to St. Louis for Game 6 of the NLCS.That’s great news for the Dodgers, and not just because their 6-4 win Wednesday gives them one more opportunity to sample Hollywood hotshot Jon Hamm’s favorite thin-crust pizza, Imo’s. In an ideal Los Angeles world, they would have won all three games at Dodger Stadium this week to go back to St. Louis up 3-2, but at least they avoided the worst-case scenario—losing twice at home to end the NLCS in disappointing fashion. MORE: Fagan recaps Game 5 | Stats | Top images from the series | TV scheduleThe return trip to Busch Stadium is far fr夜网论坛om devastating for the Cardinals, who are up 3-2 in the series, though they would have preferred to wrap up the series early and avoid the prospect of having to face Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw one more time. That’s not fun for any opponent, and it doesn’t matter that the Cardinals won when Kershaw started Game 2. Kershaw has an 0.47 ERA in three playoff starts, after posting a 1.83 ERA this season.“It’s a pretty good feeling with Clayton pitching on Friday,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said after the game. “We breathe until then. We feel like Clayton is pretty much going to keep you in the game and give you a chance if you can put runs up. We know their guy is really good. It’ll be fun.”“Their guy” is Michael Wacha, the hard-throwing rookie who has an 0.64 playoff ERA. In the first Kershaw-Wacha matchup, the Cardinals won 1-0 thanks t[......]

    Dodgers' Yasiel Puig off the hook in reckless driving charge

  • Going 110 on a Florida highway got Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig in trouble. He will answer to the speeding allegation, but prosecutors have decided not to pursue a reckless driving charge.Puig and the term reckless are synonymous on the field, where he is equally capable of eye-popping plays and game-altering misplays. And given his hype after a breakout season in 2013, December's arrest was newsworthy. So, too, is word of the charge's dismissal. A memo from prosecutors explained that excessive speed wasn't sufficient to prosecute the case without other aggravating factors, such as weaving in and out of traffic, losing control of the vehicle or causing other motorists to brake or swerve. Puig, 23-year-old Cuban defector, was flagged by state troopers near Naples, Fla., while flying through Alligator Alley in his white Mercedes. He was going 40 mph over the limit.In April last year, Puig was clocked going 97 in a 50 mph zone in Tennessee, while playing for the Dodgers' Class AA affiliate. Those charges also wer夜网论坛e later dismissed.Dodgers officials issued a statement telling of their disappointment in Puig, who later hired a driver.[......]
