One: The Blue Jackets had a "what the heck" moment just nine seconds into the game, as the Winnipeg Jets scored off the opening faceoff. They were tentative throughout two-thirds of the game, either not taking a shot or being indecisive with the puck. It didn't help that Hutchinson, the Winnipeg goalie, was pretty spot-on throughout the game. Two: Mental lapses continue to hurt the...

Browns running game should be key down stretch

The return of 2013 NFL receiving champion Josh Gordon from suspension changes a lot for the Cleveland Browns offense.

It's about doing the little things the right way

Not much is going right for the Blue Jackets these days. There were, and still are, some injuries that they're dealing with. There was the nine-game losing streak that put them in a hole that is rather deep. And they are letting in more goals this year as compared to last season. It's as if instead of finding ways to win games, they are finding ways to lose. On the surface...
