Pieters would have been a lock, if not for the fact that out of the nine players who have qualified automatically for the team, five are Ryder Cup rookies. "I got the phone call and I was just over the moon", Pieters said, who has had making the Ryder Cup on his "bucket list" since he was a freshman at the University of IL.

But that's no excuse - when you're in the big league, you've got to step up to it". I couldn't believe we had no defenders in the middle of the goal to defend it, especially against Lukaku. "At the moment Sunderland has got everything except league position". The 23-year-old - who hadn't scored for his club in 13 matches dating back to March - scored all three in 11 minutes of the second-half to lift his side into third in the Premier League , two points behind leaders Manchester City.

At this point, there is no guarantee the Colts are going to score, and it HAS to be a touchdown. Now it's easier for Matthew Stafford to accept he's the best and most important player on the offense. Except, they gained a 1st down and then punted shortly after. That seven-play drive covered 71 yards. Beyond simply getting the win, the Lions should come out of this game feeling good about some things.

Djokovic has 12 Grand Slam titles and five short of Federer's 17, the all-time record in tennis men's singles. Defending champion Djokovic had completed just three matches in six rounds at the US Open after a freakish run blighted by injury withdrawals, but paid the price for his lack of court time when Wawrinka dragged him into a gruelling duel.

With Rodgers throwing for two touchdowns and running for another, he now has the kind of weapons that he needs. Nelson, however, tore an ACL during the 2015 preseason. Most likely, Janis will only play special teams as a punt gunner and only be used as a receiver in an emergency, but that remains to be seen. He was sacked once for no yards and didn't turn it over.

While I like what the Bolts did in the offseason and how the starters played in the preseason, the Chiefs D (even without Justin Houston ) might be a little too much for the Bolts to handle, especially in a tough KC atmosphere. The Chargers would love to be in any playoff position. That is a talent at which Mebane excels. These chargers will create a memorabilia in the city by taking on the Kansas City Chiefs .

We had that spirit in some games, but we weren't consistent. We know that, against Swansea, the game will be very tough. We face a team well-organised with a good manager. Conte said: "It (Luiz rejoining) can be an opportunity - a solution". David Luiz is once more a Blues player - but what can he offer this time round? I put my sweat into my players.

Unimpressed: Jose Mourinho was fuming after Manchester United's first half performance against City. It was only that moment of indecision from Bravo that disrupted City - and Guardiola's congratulations for his players at the end were also an expression of delight for their resilience when the going got tough late on.

Bernie Sanders, Clinton's primary rival. "I just don't know where he's coming from on foreign policy and on economics and on Obamacare", Pence told reporters aboard his campaign plane just after it touched down here.

Luiz trained with his new Chelsea team-mates on Tuesday afternoon as Conte put his Blues players through their paces ahead of their trip to south Wales at the weekend. "I think this squad can play 3-4-3, not 3-5-2 like the national team in Italy and Juventus but, because of the characteristics of the players, we can play 3-4-3".

We do have a fair bit of goal threat and creativity with Walcott, Ozil and Cazorla in the starting line up and so let's hope that Wenger's team selection proves to be the flawless one, for today as well as for Tuesday. Mustafi played the full 90 minutes, while fellow debutant Lucas Perez was withdrawn in the second half for Olivier Giroud. Iwobi cupped a thigh injury during the first game of the season against Liverpool.

But Robert Snodgrass scored his sixth goal of the season, after his hat-trick for Scotland during the worldwide break, in the dying minutes with a free-kick. The home side grew into the occasion as the half wore on, but nearly fell behind in the final minute as Snodgrass fed Meyler, whose low effort had the beating of Heaton but glanced off the far post and behind.

This is the first explosive meeting in the English Premier League (EPL) between the two managers, with Pep once again coming out top. The match, which marked the first encounter between Guardiola and Mourinho since 2013, also saw City end United's flawless start to the PremierLeague this season.

"These tournaments are the hardest to win", said Murray, who also won the Wimbledon mixed doubles title in 2007.

Looking at the above statement, you think, not a chance. Conspiracies aside, CM Punk has never fought outside the WWE ring.

Under Louis van Gaal, Rooney played in nearly three positions with the Dutchman deploying him as a forward, in a number 10 role and also as a central midfielder at times. We are trying to fit him in, but he's not a midfield player for me. "To a certain extent I can see the point of a manager, but for Rooney this has often worked in a negative way", Gullit added.

Why it can't be just great man?" Settling into his chair in front of a throng of reporters after the jacket event, Shaquille O'Neal playfully needled Iverson's no-show. That's the only reason I'm here. "All those guys sacrificed their games and sacrificed things for me". Without them, it wouldn't have happened. At the Hall of Fame press conference on Thursday, both players talked about how the connections between them were built.

Overeem, a former K-1 World Grand Prix champion, poses a major threat to the American because of his brilliant striking.

Don't underestimate the fact that Pliskova, until this fortnight, had never been past the third round of a Grand Slam. Kerber reached her third Grand Slam final of the season - and of her career - by beating two-time U.S. Having become the first German to top the rankings since Steffi Graf, Kerber claimed she had achieved one of her dreams. "No, I think that was once and that was OK", she said when asked about taking another victory plunge.

Jose Mourinho is more concerned about Sergio Aguero's absence than renewing his battle with Pep Guardiola in the Manchester derby. As the footage shows Fernandez says: 'I only talk to Robson, I don't know this second coach; I don't who he is or where he has come from?' It was Fernandez using a tactic not unlike the one Mourinho would go on to use many times himself in later years.

Whether backup Shaun Hill or newly acquired Sam Bradford gets the start for Minnesota's injured Teddy Bridgewater , the Football Outsiders Almanac makes a strong case that they are one in the same. "It is a challenge, not like it's going to be where there's two completely different styles", he said of preparing for both quarterbacks. "That's pretty much up to him, how he's feeling and how he wants to get ...

Guardiola has only watched one previous Manchester derby all the way through, last season's 1-0 win for United at the Etihad Stadium when he had already signed the contract to become City manager. "He has had a big impact in what he did everywhere and he is an unbelievable talent, especially on the pitch". There is an expression on the Manchester United goalkeeper's face that says as much as he does.

The return of throwback weekend at Darlington brought back memories for fans and members of NASCAR . Martin Truex Jr. has already won two of NASCAR's most coveted races. Much like when a kicker misses a potential game-winning field goal, or when a relief pitcher in baseball blows a lead in the ninth, a pit crew usually gets the most attention only when it has a bad stop or a bad night.
