  1. Donald Trump's biggest crimes against food Donald Trump Getty Images By Chris Heasman Donald Trump is arguably the most divisive figure on the planet. In America, half the people you find (okay, it's actually about 37 percent as of January 2019, but you know what we mean) seem to love him, while the other half loathe him with the same kind of passionate vitriol that's usually reserved for bankers, reality TV stars and people who click "reply to all" on email chains. He's controversial, is what we're getting at. To his fans, it's almost as if he can do no wrong. To his critics, he can do nothing right. But there's one aspect of Trump's life which must surely unite all but his most zealous followers in their sheer, unbridled disgust: the things he eats and the way he eats them. This is a man who, for whatever reason, chooses to indulge in some of the strangest eating habits ever enjoyed by a member of the presidency. From burnt steaks to soggy taco bowls, these are Donald Trump's worst crimes against food. Read More: https://www.mashed.com/144972/donald-tru...paign=clip Eating steak burnt to a crisp Burnt steak Shutterstock This is a famous one. In 2017, a reporter from the Independent Journal Review reserved a table at the steakhouse in Washington D.C.'s Trump International Hotel, hoping to catch a glimpse of what the President ordered. Turns out, he opted for a $54 dry-aged New York strip — which he insisted was to be cooked well-done. And this wasn't the first time, either: according to his ex-butler Anthony Senecal, Trump would regularly order steak that was cooked so well that it would rock on the plate. Usually, it would be slathered in ketchup. Now, it doesn't exactly help that ordering your steak well-done can cause you physical and mental harm — including (according to some studies) cancer and dementia. An article published in 2017 for Eater also suggested that ordering well-done steak could suggest an aversion to risk, timidity, defensiveness, and even insecurity in the person eating it. Worst of all, however, is the absolute misery of deciding to waste a good cut of steak in a way that routinely breaks the hearts of chefs.

  2. Bills playoff picture: Post-Week 10 recap of AFC teams 'in the hunt' Nick Wojton November 12, 2019 9:23 am ET The Bills’ loss to the Cleveland Browns hurt. All loses tend to do that in the NFL, but this one hurt a little more.

  3. NFL makes December schedule change, kickoff times decided for rare tripleheader in Week 16 We get a full weekend of football in Week 16 this year Jordan Dajani mugshot by Jordan Dajani @JordanDajani Nov 12, 2019 at 6:59 pm ET • 2 min read On Tuesday, the NFL made a few changes to its 2019 schedule. It first flexed the Week 12 Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers game to "Sunday Night Football," and then finalized a tripleheader which will take place on Dec. 21 -- the Saturday of Week 16. According to ESPN's Field Yates, the NFL is slating the Houston Texans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers for 1 p.m. ET, the Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots for 4:30 p.m. ET and the Los Angeles Rams at 49ers for 8:15 p.m. ET. All three games will be broadcast on NFL Network. This season will mark the first time since 2005 that the NFL has held a Saturday tripleheader. Whether it's a one, two or three games, Saturday NFL games in late December have become an annual tradition. This season will mark the 48th time in the past 49 years that there's been at least one Saturday game on the regular-season schedule. The Texans will be looking to repeat as AFC South champions this season, and they have done a good job so far, as they lead the division at 6-3. The Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans are not far behind, however, which means every game will be important for them moving forward. While their 3-6 record is nothing to boast about, Jameis Winston's Buccaneers have surprised a couple of teams this season. Their schedule also gets easier down the stretch, so they could be a team to watch over the next month or so. The Bills kept things close with the Patriots at home in September and lost by just six points even with Matt Barkley under center. The Patriots are no longer undefeated, but the Bills have faltered over the past few weeks. They were blown out by the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8 and then lost to Baker Mayfield and the Browns on Sunday. The Bills are still considered one of the biggest surprises this season, but they will need to regroup and get back into the win column to prepare for the chance to shock the world by taking down the Patriots in Foxborough next month. The NFC West is one of the more competitive divisions in football, and the Saturday night showdown between the Rams and 49ers could end up having some important ramifications. The 5-4 Rams have been a disappointment, but they still have time to fight for a playoff bid. If they go on a run over the next month, their matchup with the 8-1 49ers could be a must-watch.

  5. 15 most jaw-dropping performances from CFB Week 11 Matt Johnson, Sportsnaut 6 hrs ago Analysis: GOP attempts to move probe away from… All eyes on Texas governor as calls grow to halt… One of the most highly anticipated weekends of college football delivered everything fans could hope for. Week 11 of the college football season provided us with thrilling action, a few upsets and some truly jaw-dropping performances. © John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports We’ll remember this weekend for some outstanding performances on both sides of the ball. While the spotlight is on this weekend’s impact on the College Football Playoff rankings, it also played a vital role in the race for the Heisman Trophy. Several of the country’s top players delivered on the big stage with feats we won’t soon forget. Meanwhile, Week 11 also provided us a chance to witness greatness from a few unheralded players as well. Here are the 15 most jaw-dropping performances from Week 11 of the college football season. Quincy Roche, defensive end, Temple Owls © Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The Owls took the field for a primetime game looking to rebound after two consecutive blowout losses. Temple’s defense came through against South Florida and Roche led the efforts with a phenomenal game. He tore through USF’s offensive line. He racked up 3.5 sacks, the third-most sacks in a game in team history, and climbed up three spots in the program’s record book. Antoine Winfield Jr., safety, Minnesota Golden Gophers © Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports He’s much more than his father’s namesake. Winfield Jr. is quickly proving to be one of the best defensive backs in college football and his big-play ability helped deliver an upset over Penn State. The redshirt sophomore soared for his first interception on Penn State’s opening drive and it led to points for Minnesota’s offense. When the Nittany Lions started driving, Winfield Jr. showed off his playmaking ability with his second pick of the half. He’s sitting at seven interceptions this year and is making a name for himself. Salvon Ahmed, running back, Washington Huskies © Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports The Huskies came into this season with hopes of competing for a conference championship. Things haven’t gone according to plan and if not for Ahmed, Washington would have suffered a humiliating loss to Oregon State. Washington’s junior running back single-handedly carried the offense. Ahmed accounted for the team’s only two touchdowns, including a game-sealing 60-yard score, and racked up 174 rushing yards. While a conference title is out of the picture, Ahmed kept the team’s hopes of an eight-win season alive. Tyler Snead, wide receiver, East Carolina Pirates © James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports A small receiver at an even smaller program, Snead came into the weekend flying under the national radar. The 5-foot-7 Pirate showed why size doesn’t always matter on the gridiron with a gigantic performance in Week 11. No. 25 SMU’s defense never discovered a way to deal with Snead’s speed, explosiveness and crisp route running. So, quarterback Holton Ahlers bombarded him with passes, including a 57-yard touchdown. Snead hauled in 19 receptions for 240 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Sizable numbers indeed. Rakeem Boyd, running back, Arkansas Razorbacks © Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports Boyd is in one of the worst situations in football. Arkansas is a mess under head coach Chad Morris and is routinely destroyed by mid-tier programs. Boyd is doing everything possible to keep Arkansas’ fans invested in the program. The junior turned eight carries into 185 rushing yards with two scores on Saturday. It’s remarkable that he’s now over 1,000 yards despite all of this team’s issues. Joe Burrow, quarterback, LSU Tigers © Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports The 2019 Heisman Trophy is awarded to Joe Burrow. Get familiar with that phrase because we’ll hear it on Dec. 14 when Burrow walks on to the stage and accepts the coveted trophy. It felt like a safe bet before Saturday’s clash with Alabama and the senior’s stellar performance made it a practical guarantee. Burrow completed his first 13 passes against and quickly hit three touchdowns before halftime. Alabama’s defense then adjusted and held LSU scoreless in the third quarter. Burrow responded in the fourth quarter and capped it off with a seven-play, 75-yard drive that ate up four minutes and put the game away. At this point, the margin of victory is the only question left for the Heisman Trophy. Shane Buechele, quarterback, SMU Mustangs © Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports A week after SMU’s defense ended the team’s undefeated season, Buechele made sure his team didn’t falter again. He took the field once again without his No. 1 receiver Reggie Roberson and still led his team to a 59-51 victory. Buechele completed 33-of-46 attempts with 414 passing yards and five touchdowns, including two clutch scores in the fourth quarter. He’s now thrown 27 touchdowns this season and surpassed the 3,000-yard mark for the first time in his career. While the perfect season is long gone, SMU is elated with its 9-1 record and Buechele’s play. Rashod Bateman, wide receiver, Minnesota Golden Gophers © Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports Penn State came into Minnesota with one of the best defenses in the country and realistic hopes of a spot in the College Football Playoff. Bateman managed to set both aflame with this absurd receiving clinic. The sophomore kicked things off by nuking the Nittany Lions for a 66-yard score. He routinely turned Penn State’s secondary into glass and finished with 203 receiving yards on seven grabs. After a breakout freshman campaign with 704 receiving yards, Bateman is now 148 yards shy of a 1,000-yard season in his second year. Tua Tagovailoa, quarterback, Alabama Crimson Tide © John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports It became evident from the beginning that Tagovailoa wasn’t playing at 100 percent. Only three weeks removed from ankle surgery, Alabama’s star quarterback nearly pulled off an incredible second-half comeback against the best team in CFB. Things started poorly with an ugly fumble inside the red zone. The game even seemed out of reach when Alabama trailed 33-13 at halftime. Tagovailoa found his way in the second half and hit his stride in the fourth quarter with two touchdowns in the final six minutes. He finished with 418 passing yards and four touchdowns, nearly overcoming his slow start, in an inspiring performance playing through pain. Holton Ahlers, quarterback, East Carolina Pirates © Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports There are insane two-game runs and then there’s what Ahlers is doing for East Carolina. While the Pirates dropped both games, the sophomore showcased his talents once again. Ahlers picked SMU’s secondary apart with 498 passing yards and an unfathomable six touchdown passes. He’s completed 64-of-94 pass attempts for 1,033 yards with 10 touchdowns and one interception in his past two games. East Carolina’s future is very bright with its Ahlers-Sneed duo. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, running back, LSU Tigers © John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports The game everyone hoped would be the best of the 2019 season surpassed the hype. Both offenses came to dominate at Bryant-Denny Stadium, and in a showcase of starting-caliber NFL talent, Edwards-Helaire put himself on everyone’s radar. LSU made the junior a fixture in its offense, especially in the second half. Edwards-Helair displayed his power and balance by rolling through Alabama’s defense for 103 rushing yards and three scores. He also put his receiving skills on display with nine receptions for 77 yards and a fourth end-zone trip. When LSU needed to drive the dagger into Alabama, he powered it in for the win. DeVonta Smith, wide receiver, Alabama Crimson Tide © Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports The nation’s best receiving corps almost always make an appearance on the jaw-dropping performance list. Smith got his turn this week after a sensational 213-yard outing with two eye-popping plays. pic.twitter.com/S1g3r5vBKi — Videos by: FTB (@FTBVids1) November 10, 2019 Smith snapped Alabama’s cold spell on offense with a scorching 64-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. He found holes in LSU’s secondary then really took the top off the defense on an 85-yard touchdown with under 90 seconds left in the game. It’s practically unfair that he’s Alabama’s No. 3 receiver. Jonathan Taylor, running back, Wisconsin Badgers © Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports After a rough three-game stretch for Taylor, he took his frustrations out on one of the best run defenses in college football. Of course, that was until Taylor ran all over them in Week 11. Iowa’s defense came in holding opponents to 87.8 rushing yards per game. Wisconsin took the challenge head-on and fed Taylor a season-high 31 carries. All Taylor did is rumble his way to 250 rushing yards, nearly three times Iowa’s average yardage allowed. While his Heisman dreams are over, Taylor can finish his Wisconsin career by climbing his way up Wisconsin’s record books. Najee Harris, running back, Alabama Crimson Tide © Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports Fans are blessed to be watching college football in a year with so many great running backs. Alabama’s passing attack gets plenty of deserved attention, but Harris showed everyone why he must be recognized as one of the nation’s best running backs. Just watch his unbelievable work on Alabama’s 95-yard scoring drive. He accounted for 88 yards and a touchdown on the desperately needed drive and it only highlighted this dazzling performance. Harris rushed for 146 yards on 19 carries with an additional 44 receiving yards on three receptions and two total touchdowns. Alabama’s backfield is a pipeline to the NFL and Harris is its next great running back. CeeDee Lamb, wide receiver, Oklahoma Sooners © Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports We regularly see Lamb deliver performances that leave us speechless. So, the junior decided he’d add something special in the victory over Iowa State. Lamb gave a noteworthy performance as a receiver but it’s his blocking that stood out on Saturday.
  6. Bills at Browns (-3) Bills: None Browns: DE Olivier Vernon (knee), DB Eric Murray (knee) OUT; S Damarious Randall (hamstring), TE Ricky Seals-Jones (knee), TE Pharaoh Brown (concussion) QUESTIONABLE The Bills only had two players on their injury report this week, and both practiced in full on Friday and avoided a final injury tag, leaving the team healthy heading into this matchup. Josh Allen should have at least somewhat of an easier day Sunday without Vernon rushing him off the edge. Browns defensive coordinator Steve Wilks said Thursday, however, that he's optimistic he'll have Randall back at safety after two games without him.
  7. Burrow, LSU hold on for 46-41 win over Alabama TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Joe Burrow passed for 393 yards and three touchdowns and No. 1 LSU snapped an eight-game losing streak to No. 2 Alabama with a 46-41 victory Saturday. The Tigers (9-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference, No. 2 CFP) are no longer second fiddle in the SEC West, or maybe in the playoff rankings. And Burrow stamped himself as the Heisman Trophy front-runner with a gutty performance when he answered every challenge from `Bama. .msn_infeed_sports_US_caption, #msn_infeed_sports_US_cta, .msn_infeed_sports_US_heading, .msn_infeed_sports_US_heading_link, .msn_infeed_sports_US_sponsor { border-bottom: none; color: #000; display: block; font-family: 'Segoe UI', 'Segoe WP', Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 1.8rem; -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 1.1; margin: 0 auto; padding: 0; text-align: center; text-rendering: optimizeLegibility; width: 90%; } .msn_infeed_sports_US { clear: left !important; float: left !important; margin: 1rem 3rem 2rem 0 !important; padding: 0 0 1.25rem !important; max-width: 300px !important; } .msn_infeed_sports_US_image { margin: 1rem auto; } .msn_infeed_sports_US_sponsor { font-size: 1.3rem; margin: .8rem auto 0; } .msn_infeed_sports_US_heading, .msn_infeed_sports_US_heading_link { font-size: 2rem; word-spacing: .msn_infeed_sports_US_heading_link:hover {text-decoration: underline !important;} The Early Signs Of Psoriatic Arthritis #msn_infeed_sports_US_cta:hover {background-color: transparent !important;border-color: #000 !important; color: #000 !important;text-decoration: none !important;} See More .msn_infeed_sports_US_sponsor:hover {text-decoration: none !important;} .msn_infeed_sports_US_sponsor:hover span {text-decoration: underline !important;} Ad by Yahoo Search http://eb2.3lift.com/px?add=88601[/img] BOX SCORE: LSU 46, ALABAMA 41 RELATED: LSU scores 2 touchdowns in 20 seconds And the challenges were plentiful. The Crimson Tide (8-1, 5-1, No. 3 CFP) rallied from a 33-13 halftime deficit to three times to pull within a touchdown in the fourth quarter. It seemingly kept going from game seemingly over to game on. The showdown lived up to its billing as a duel between two high-powered offenses and star quarterbacks with President Donald Trump attending. Tua Tagovailoa launched an 85-yard touchdown pass to DeVonta Smith with 1:21 left after the Tigers' own scoring march. Justin Jefferson recovered the onside kick and LSU ran out the clock. Burrow completed 31 of 39 passes and ran for 64 yards and was carried most of the way off the field by two teammates. "He's one of the best we've had here," LSU coach Ed Orgeron said. "But we've still got four games left and we're going down the road, we're going to try to win every game and we're going to bring a championship back to Louisiana." That's what Burrow sought when he transferred to LSU from Ohio State. "We're not done yet," the two-year starter said. "It's Game 9. We've got three more regular-season ones and the SEC championship. This was never our goal. We've got bigger goals than this." Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran for three touchdowns and caught a scoring pass, getting emotional on the sideline after a late touchdown that appeared once again to put the game away. Tagovailoa, 20 days removed from ankle surgery, was 21 of 40 for 418 yards and four touchdowns with an interception and a fumble. He was called a "game-time decision" all week, looked shaky early and appeared to be limping after the game, but he kept Alabama in it. Coach Nick Saban said Tagovailoa practiced all week without any issues. "He said he could play in the game, he wanted to play in the game and he thought he could go out and do a good job," Saban said. "I think he was a warrior in terms of what he did." Smith had 213 yards and a pair of touchdowns on seven catches for Alabama. LSU outgained Alabama by a slender 559-541. The Tigers had scored just 39 combined points in the last five meetings. THE TAKEAWAY LSU: The Tigers have eight wins over Top 10 teams in the past two seasons, none bigger than this. Burrow & Co. faced down a 101,000-plus mostly hostile fans and a strong pass rush. Scored two touchdowns in the final 26 seconds of the first half in a pivotal flurry that threatened to be overshadowed by the second half drama. Alabama: Didn't wilt under the adversity of a season previously characterized lopsided wins over teams currently unranked. Could be shut out of the playoffs barring some upsets elsewhere, mostly because of that schedule. Tagovailoa had a fumble and an interception in the first half. "We don't really control our own destiny but if we finish the season the right way, we can see where it takes us," Saban said. TOUGH TAILBACKS The running backs delivered. Edwards-Helaire ran for 103 yards on 20 carries and had nine catches for 77 yards. Alabama's Najee Harris, who didn't have a carry in the second quarter, finished with 146 rushing yards and a touchdown and added a receiving score. UP NEXT LSU: At Mississippi on Saturday night. Alabama: At Mississippi State on Saturday.
  8. Nick Saban gives a Tua Tagovailoa update on College Gameday [/url] On Saturday morning, Nick Saban made an appearance on College Gameday and shared a positive update on Alabama’s Heisman hopeful quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa: © Provided by USA Today Sports Media Group LLC “He has practiced really well all week long and in the short area, he’s been really, really good. He’s confident. If he feels good in pre-game and doesn’t have a setback, he’ll be able to play.” We will see what happens. Last year, Tagovailoa played in the LSU game with a hurt knee, and led the Crimson Tide to a 29-0 victory over the Tigers.

  9. Bills at Browns: 5 key matchups McKenna Middlebrook email 5 hours ago The Buffalo Bills moved to 6-2 after their win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, while their opponent the Cleveland Browns fell to 2-6 after their loss to the Denver Broncos. It’s been a tumultuous season for the Cleveland Browns who were deemed Super Bowl contenders after their seemingly sensational off season. Yet, they haven’t lived up to the hype. That being said, here are the matchups to watch when the Buffalo Bills play the Cleveland Browns: Nick Chubb #24 of the Cleveland Browns. (Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images) Star Lotulelei, Jordan Phillips vs. Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt The Bills run defense has seemingly been exposed in the past three weeks, allowing 454 yards in the past three games on the ground. That is not good enough for the seemingly elite defense. Buffalo’s defense is now allowing 111.6 yards per game, which is 19th in the league. Overall, Buffalo has the third-best defense. You can see the discrepancy. In the first half against Washington, running back Adrian Peterson rushed for 101 yards and simply couldn’t be stopped. The defense made adjustments in the second half and held him to just seven yards but the Redskins were also behind and had to throw. The Browns have been struggling this season, but their one consistent weapon on offense has been Nick Chubb. Chubb has 803 rushing yards on 154 attempts, an average of 5.2 yards per carry, and six rushing touchdowns. Chubb is a dominant runner and shown that he can carry the Browns offense, but he hasn’t had consistent touches throughout the season. Fans and media have pointed to his lack of touches as one of the reasons Cleveland haven’t reached their full potential. Did I mention that Kareem Hunt is returning? It could be a long day for the interior of Buffalo’s defense. The No. 1 and No. 2 guys in the middle there last week were Star Lotulelei and Jordan Phillips. It remains to be seen how much of a role Ed Oliver and Corey Liuget play.
  10. SEC picks, games, odds for Week 11: LSU and Alabama meet in the biggest game of 2019; Georgia keeps rolling The SEC will be the center of the college football world on Saturday afternoon by Barrett Sallee @BarrettSallee 12 hrs ago • 3 min read The rubber is meeting the road in the race for division titles, and the SEC West will take center stage on Saturday in the biggest game of the college football season. Alabama, No. 3 in the College Football Playoff rankings, will host No. 2 LSU in the biggest game of the season with the winner taking control of the division heading into the stretch run. It's not the only big game of the weekend, though. No. 6 Georgia will host Missouri in a critical SEC East battle and Tennessee will look to stay hot at Kentucky. Let's break down the Week 11 slate and make picks straight up and against the spread. 2019 record straight up: 60-20 (75.0%) 2019 record against the spread: 42-37-1 (53.1%) No. 2 LSU at No. 3 Alabama (-6.5): It would be a total shock if Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (ankle) doesn't play against the Tigers, which is bad news for a Tigers defense that has given up 78 passing plays of 10 or more yards (T-7th SEC). Tagovailoa will work that RPO game to perfection and put pressure on LSU's offense to keep up. Auburn created a blueprint on how to slow down that offense two weeks ago. Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban will take advantage of the extra time and do enough defensively to get a close win ... but not a cover. Pick: LSU (+6.5) Missouri at No. 6 Georgia (-17): The return of wide receiver Lawrence Cagerand a more creative offensive philosophy helped the Bulldogs control Floridalast week. Georgia will build off of it against a Tigers' defense that gave up 6.4 yards per play last time out to a Kentucky team that used wide receiver Lynn Bowden at quarterback. That, coupled with the injury to Tigers quarterback Kelly Bryant, will make this an easy win between the hedges for the Bulldogs. Pick: Georgia (-17) Vanderbilt at No. 10 Florida (-26): The Gators defense got held in check by Georgia last week, but the Commodores are the perfect elixir for Florida's hangover. The Commodores have allowed 6.25 tackles for loss per game this season (12th in the SEC) and 2.13 sacks per game (11th in the SEC). Florida's running game hasn't been great, but it'll get cranked up against a 'Dores defense that ranks 13th in the conference in rush defense (202.5 YPG). Pick: Florida (-26) Tennessee at Kentucky (+1): The Vols have played great since sputtering out of the gate, and their defense was lights out against a good UAB team last week on Rocky Top. They'll shut down a Kentucky offense with converted wide receiver Lynn Bowden at quarterback that has essentially transformed into a spread option scheme. Tennessee will run its way to an easy win on the legs of running back Ty Chandler. Pick: Tennessee (-1) Appalachian State at South Carolina (-5): The Mountaineers' undefeated season came to an end last week, but a win over the Gamecocks would be a huge boost as they fight to make a New Year's Six bowl. Unfortunately for them, it isn't going to happen. Coach Will Muschamp's front seven has been fierce this year (6.22 TFL per game), and the Mountaineers are sixth in the Sun Belt in TFL allowed (5.5). The Gamecocks make this one and old school slugfest, and throw a haymaker in the fourth quarter to pull away. Pick: South Carolina (-5)
  11. Bills' Corey Liuget: Signs with Buffalo Rotowire NOV 5, 2019 Buffalo signed Liuget on Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. The team placed Maurice Alexander on injured reserve, so the extra spot was used to continue beefing up the middle of the defense, which has been gashed at times in recent weeks. Liuget brings plenty of experience as a 2011 first-rounder that's now on his fourth team.
  12. NFL Week 10 Power Rankings: Unbeaten 49ers claim top spot, Ravens climb, Patriots drop after first loss The 49ers are the best team in the league right now and rightfully No. 1 in Pete Prisco's Power Rankings by Pete Prisco @PriscoCBS 3 hrs ago • 1 min read There is no denying it anymore. The San Francisco 49ers are the best team in the NFL. The New England Patriots got shredded Sunday night by the Baltimore Ravens, leaving the 49ers as the only undefeated team. For weeks, many, myself included, wondered if the 49ers really were one of the NFL"s best. We can't wonder anymore. They are the best – for now. Kyle Shanahan's group has been impressive. The defense has carried the team, but the run game on offense is as good as any in the league. The one unknown was whether they could throw it well enough. Jimmy Garoppolo answered that question last week with a four-touchdown game against the Arizona Cardinals. Week 9 is in the books and there's a lot to go over. Fortunately Will Brinson, John Breech, Ryan Wilson and Sean Wagner-McGough are here to break everything down on the latest episode of the Pick Six Podcast. Listen to the full show below and be sure to subscribe right here for daily NFL goodness. The 49ers play a tough game this week on Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson, who is the MVP as of right now. That defense will be tested for sure. They head to that game as the best team in the NFL, the last undefeated team in the league, which is the surprise of the first half. That has them now in the top spot of my Power Rankings this week, which is a big improvement from where they started the season. The 49ers will lose somewhere along the way, but the scary thing is they've done this without being close to full force. Injuries have hit the offensive line in a big way, yet they've played through it with success. That's why Shanahan is a legitimate coach of the year candidate. He's done an outstanding job getting his team to the top. Now comes the tough part: Keeping it there.

He was outstanding. 1 8-0-0 2 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/NO.svg[/img] Saints They come off their bye with a division game against the Falcons and a healthier Drew Brees. That's always a good thing. 1 7-1-0 3 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/BAL.svg[/img] Ravens Lamar Jackson is a legitimate MVP candidate. What they did to New England was impressive. 2 6-2-0 4 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/NE.svg[/img] Patriots It's just one loss, but they looked really bad on defense against the Ravens. That won't happen again. They will use that loss as motivation. 3 8-1-0 5 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/GB.svg[/img] Packers That was a terrible showing against the Chargers. The offensive line got whipped and Aaron Rodgers was off in a big way. 1 7-2-0 6 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/SEA.svg[/img] Seahawks Russell Wilson got back on track in his quest to be the MVP against the Bucs.

They should. 2 6-2-0 10 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/KC.svg[/img] Chiefs That was an impressive victory against the Vikings without Patrick Mahomes. He should be back soon, which is when things get back to normal. 5 6-3-0 11 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/MIN.svg[/img] Vikings At some point, they have to win games like they lost in Kansas City. You can't lose to the Chiefs with a backup passer and now comes a tough one at Dallas. 5 6-3-0 12 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/IND.svg[/img] Colts The Jacoby Brissett injury isn't bad, which is a good thing.

The defense has really made improvements. 2 4-4-0 18 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/LAC.svg[/img] Chargers That was a season-saving victory against the Packers. Now they face a tough turnaround with a road game against the Raiders. 3 4-5-0 19 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/JAC.svg[/img] Jaguars After London, they get a bye and a week to decide who will be the quarterback going forward.

Their defense isn't good enough. 4 3-4-1 21 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/TEN.svg[/img] Titans Ryan Tannehill lost for the first time Sunday, but it wasn't on him. The defense had a rough go of it. 1 4-5-0 22 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/CHI.svg[/img] Bears The offense is way too limited, which is why this team won't be in the playoffs. Even the defense is tailing off some now. -- 3-5-0 23 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/ARI.svg[/img] Cardinals They've improved as the season moved along and really pushed the 49ers last Thursday. They have a winnable game against former coach Bruce Arians and the Bucs this week. 1 3-5-1 24 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/DEN.svg[/img] Broncos Brandon Allen did some really good things in his first NFL start, leading the Broncos to a victory over the Browns. With Joe Flacco out for a while, it's his team. 1 3-6-0 25 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/CLE.svg[/img] Browns At 2-6, all that preseason hype seems like a big waste of time. They aren't going anywhere this season. 2 2-6-0 26 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/NYG.svg[/img] Giants They competed against the Cowboys, which is another good sign. They just aren't good enough to win those types of games yet. -- 2-7-0 27 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/TB.svg[/img] Buccaneers The defense isn't very good right now, which is why they aren't winning games. Now here comes Kyler Murray. -- 2-6-0 28 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/WAS.svg[/img] Redskins Dwayne Haskins wasn't awful in his first start, but he needs to throw it down the field more. That will come. -- 1-8-0 29 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/MIA.svg[/img] Dolphins They won a game. They won a game. They won a game.

This team is a disaster right now. 2 1-7-0 32 https://sportsfly.cbsistatic.com/fly-450/bundles/sportsmediacss/images/team-logos/nfl/CIN.svg[/img] Bengals It's time for Ryan Finley as they come off the bye.

Jeff Van Drew, D-N.J., opposed the impeachment resolution. The resolution passed 232-196 but lacked votes from Reps. Jeff Van Drew, D-N.J., who has long expressed skepticism about impeachment, and Collin Peterson, D-Minn., whose district Trump won by 31 points. No Republicans voted for the resolution, signaling that the House GOP still stands firmly behind Trump as he comes under heavy fire. "At the end of the day we’ll have the same president and same candidate and a failed impeachment process, and the only difference would be that the president will have been exonerated of charges," Van Drew said in a statement to Fox News. DEMS PUSH IMPEACHMENT RULES OVER REPEATED GOP OBJECTIONS, AS EXASPERATION BOILS OVER House committees have held nearly a dozen depositions of witnesses who have testified behind closed doors about their knowledge of a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. It's been alleged, by an anonymous whistleblower, among others, that Trump sought to persuade the foreign leader to open an investigation into 2020 presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter's business dealings in Ukraine in exchange for military aid to that nation. Van Drew said that although he "feels concerned with many of the allegations related to the president," he doesn't think it's enough to warrant Trump's removal from office. Peterson is one of two Democrats remaining in the House who voted to authorize impeachment against Bill Clinton in 1998. SEN. BLACKBURN: DEMOCRATS ARE ONLY HOLDING IMPEACHMENT VOTE AFTER 'FLAK' FROM CRITICS Other Democrats said their support for Thursday's resolution was not necessarily an indication of how they would vote on possible impeachment articles. Freshman Rep. Kendra Horn, D-Okla., announced she would vote for the resolution while making clear it was not a vote for impeachment — just to authorize the rules for impeachment hearings. Trump carried Horn’s district by 13 points in 2016. Horn won her seat last fall in what some observers called an upset.

There is no requirement in the Constitution or House Rules, however, requiring such a resolution to authorize an impeachment inquiry. In a letter to Democratic colleagues Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she was bringing the rules resolution to the floor specifically to take that talking point away from Republicans. WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL WHO FLAGGED UKRAINE CONCERNS TESTIFIES IN IMPEACHMENT PROBE “We are taking this step to eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas, or continue obstructing the House of Representatives," Pelosi said. Republican representatives, however, have not been satisfied with the move, saying that the impeachment inquiry is already discredited by the secret hearings and bias against Trump from Democrats. "It's clear Pelosi needs to declare a mistrial," Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., said Tuesday as he and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, accused House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., of stopping a witness from answering certain Republican questions during a deposition. "This has been a tainted process from the start. What happened today confirms even worse just how poorly Adam Schiff is handling this process, denying the ability for Republicans to even ask basic questions that are critical to the heart of whether or not a President of the United States is impeached." CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP Additionally, on the House floor on Thursday, Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., said Republicans offered 17 amendments to the impeachment resolution and "not one" was accepted. Rep. Ross Spano, R-Fla., also criticized the resolution, noting Republicans will be unable to subpoena witnesses without the approval of Schiff, echoing a criticism other Republicans have leveled about the impeachment rules resolution released Tuesday. Rep. Justin Amash, I-Mich., who left the Republican caucus this year after a longstanding tiff with Trump and much of the GOP, also voted for the resolution Thursday.
  14. Bills Today | Josh Allen: That's just how I lead Bills Today | Josh Allen: That's just how I lead Maddy Glab Multi-media journalist 1. Josh Allen: That's just how I lead Bills quarterback Josh Allen sat down with senior NFL writer for Yahoo Spots Kimberley A. Martin to discuss his thoughts on the team midway through the season, his growth since his rookie year and more. Allen believes the best is yet to come with the talent level of the offense. “I think the best thing right now is we’ve played some good football games, but we haven’t put everything together yet,” Allen said. “I think that when we can take care of the football, when we can run our routes on the outside and make some plays there, get our running game going, when we get all those things going, I think we can be really good. But at the same time, we’re not really trying to be the best offense in the league. We are trying to be the best team in the league. I think we’ve got a lot of guys with the same mindset. I think when you’ve got a lot of guys with the same mindset, working for the same goal, you’re usually going to have success.” Allen is working on being more successful in keeping himself safe this year when it comes to his run game. The quarterback thinks he has done a better job at hitting the ground before taking unnecessary hits. “I’ve made a concerted effort this year, I think compared to last year,” Allen explained. “I’ve been getting down when I need to, but that competitor in me still wants to go that extra yard and make a guy miss to get the first down. When it’s first and second down, I feel like I’ve done a good job of getting down and trying to avoid some hits. Then on third down or on fourth down, especially near the goal line sticking the ball out and opening myself to bigger hits. That’s just how I lead. That’s how I show my guys how bad I want to win football games.” The makeup of the team, whether it’s players who were allowed to walk from previous teams or players who were doubted, are finding success together on a team that doesn’t get much attention from the national media. “We’re just a group of guys that maybe teams didn’t want that came to Buffalo and wanted to put their heads down and work hard,” Allen said. “That’s just kind of how this community is as well. It’s a hard-working community that doesn’t get a lot of praise, that in the media has a bad rap. I think the players are the same way here. We’re just gritty.” This determined team has a strong message for the world. “We don’t want to make them hear us, we want to make them feel us,” Allen said. “I think that’s what we are trying to prove.” "This community lives and breathes @BuffaloBills football."

Dion Dawkins to host Shnow Gala for Rooted in Love on Friday Bills left tackle Dion Dawkins joined WGR on Tuesday to talk about his Shnow Gala on Friday and his take on the 5-2 Bills. After Sunday’s loss to the Eagles, Dawkins has learned to not let the losses define him. “In this league, as you grow, you just learn how to let it go,” Dawkins said. “You don’t hold onto it; you don’t let it linger. You just let it move on because if you let it linger, it will affect you in that next week. We have a whole new team coming in here this week and that’s really our main focus.” As the Bills hit Week 9, Dawkins likes what he has seen from his teammates. “I love everything about this team,” Dawkins said. “I love the coaches, I love the players, I love the quarterback. With being 5-2, that’s one heck of a record for a team that people don’t show too much respect for. I can’t be any happier for the position that we’re in. We have the opportunity to be 1-0 every week, if we just do things the right way without beating ourselves.” On Friday, Nov. 1, Dawkins is hosting his Shnow Gala. It’s a black tie fundraiser for Rooted in Love, a nonprofit that works with providing necessities to the homeless. The event will be located at The BFLO Store Event Center at Eastern Hills Mall.
