Stunning comeback keeps Real Madrid top

There is arguably no team in world football better at chasing a game than Los Blancos – and Saturday evening provided another prime example of their never-say-die attitude.

Dallas Cowboys: Five reasons Dak Prescott will not have a “sophomore slump”

Dak Prescott was called upon much earlier than anticipated for his rookie campaign with the Dallas Cowboys. The pressure was on and he ran with it, leading the Cowboys to the playoffs and an NFC East title with a 13-3 record. To say his first year was a success would be an understatement. If his 3600 yards passing, 23 touchdowns with only 4 interceptions, and a 104.9 passer rating...
