Week 5 saw blowouts, close wins, and the craziest way to cover that I’ve ever seen. Let’s take a look at the college players of the week.
Offensive Player of the Week: Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State
Winston absolutely torched, I mean torched, Maryland on Saturday, to the tune of 393 yards and 5 touchdowns. The fact that he sat...
As Week 5 in the NFL came to a close last night, it’s time to take a look at the best and worst performers from the weekend.
Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys – 25/36, 506 yards, 5 TD, INT
Romo is catching a lot of flack this week, despite setting a single-game career high for passing yards. His interception at the 2 minute warning in the 4th quarter led to the game winning field...

Mike Napoli is one of the most popular Texas Rangers in recent history. Acquired from Toronto before the 2011 season, the catcher/first baseman hit .320 with 30 home runs and 75 RBI in his first season with Texas. He also had the highest WAR (wins above replacement) of his career at 5.3.
Had Texas managed to hold on and win the 2011 World Series,...

Tony Romo, once again, made a terrible mistake late in a game. It’s a story we’ve all seen unfold before, in Washington last year, and in New York and Philadelphia before that. This time, it came during Tony Romo’s single best performance of his career, and it’s infuriating. However, Romo should not be #1 on blame lists on Monday. Because...

It’s not often you see a team force 6 turnovers in a single game.
It’s even less often that a team forcing 6 turnovers wins by less than a touchdown.
That’s exactly what happened to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.
The Cowboys forced and recovered three fumbles, and intercepted Eli Manning three times, yet only won 36-31 when it...

With Wednesday’s 5-4 win over Houston, the Rangers swept the three game series against the Astros and finally capitalized on a quality start from Derek Holland.
This season we have seen Holland reach a level of consistency any team would love to have from their number two pitcher.
Holland has a 2.65 ERA in his last 10 starts. In six of those games, he allowed two runs or fewer...

Another offseason and another MFFL disappointment as the big name on the market finds another team, leaving the Dallas Mavericks to pick from the bottom of the free agency market.

It is being reported that Nelson Cruz will soon receive a 50 game suspension from the MLB for being linked to Biogenesis, a steroid shop out of Miami, Florida. This would put Nelson back in the Rangers lineup for their first playoff game (Texas has exactly 50 games left this season), should they make the playoffs.
My how a week can change the division landscape. Just last Sunday it looked like it was almost the end for the Texas Rangers. Six games back of the Oakland Athletics in the division, on a four game losing streak, and having not gained any ground on the A’s in over a month, it seemed […]The post Texas Rangers Streak Into Oakland: Keys to the Series appeared first on The Dallas...
(Photo by Layne Murdoch/Getty Images) Like everyone predicted the Rangers made a trade at the deadline but in the process, gained a player that simply will not put this team over the top.

(Photo Source: Jason Miller/Getty Images North America) The All-Star break should have provided the Texas Rangers with an opportunity to recharge and reset before making a push for a pennant.

In last week’s NBA draft, a player by the name of Tony Mitchell went off the board at pick 37 to the Detroit Pistons. Almost 25 picks later than where he was predicted to go if he decided to forgo his sophomore season at UNT and enter the 2012 NBA draft. Within one year, Mitchell [...]The post Tony Mitchell punches his ticket to Motor City appeared first on The Dallas Sports Rant.
