After jumping out to a 21-o lead, the St. Louis Rams made one error after another Sunday to ultimately fall 34-31 to the Dallas Cowboys. The team’s frustration was clearly visible on the bench. Tight end Jared Cook apparently did not like what someone had to say and shoved quarterback Austin Davis out of the way before getting …

Bust out the kielbasa and pierogies. The Poles are taking over the NFL. OK, that’s a bit of an overstatement, but the Eastern European nation was quite well-represented in Sunday’s game between the New England Patriots and the Oakland Raiders. It all started when Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski got his team on the board with …

Ah, rookie dress-up day. A tradition like no other. First-year players traditionally suit up in their finest Halloween costumes for the flight home after the Boston Red Sox’s final road trip of each season, and this year’s crop of rookies did not disappoint.

FOXBORO, Mass. — Tom Brady was in a better mood this week, even after his New England Patriots offense sputtered against the hapless Oakland Raiders. Brady, who was unusually down after last week’s 30-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings, is happy that his team is 2-1, and he must feel that his offense has room to grow after …

The Boston Red Sox’s influx of Cuban outfielders could continue. First, the Red Sox acquired Yoenis Cespedes from the Oakland Athletics before the Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline. Then, Boston signed Rusney Castillo to a seven-year, $72.5 million contract in August. Now, it appears the organization is at least doing its homework on Yasmani …

Allen Iverson’s “practice” rant is one of the best of all time, and a little girl’s spot-on impression made it even better. Basketball writer Steve McPherson devoted some time to teaching his daughter Iverson’s famous press conference, and the result was pure gold. Hopefully, she’s working on learning the entire almost two-minute version. H/t to DeadspinThumbnail photo via …

Lindsay Lohan either highly values defenses in fantasy football, or has absolutely no idea how the game works. While answering questions from her Twitter followers Saturday, the actress received a straight-forward question: Who did she draft first in fantasy football? Her answer was slightly perplexing. @ImJustBilly Niners — Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) September 20, 2014 For those …

A lot of people are sick of Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston’s antics, and Sam Ponder is one of those people. Winston received a full-game suspension Friday for standing on a table in a public space and yelling an obscene phrase made popular by an internet video, which is derogatory toward women. It wasn’t the …

Yasmani Tomas, one of Cuba’s top young power hitters, defected in the hopes of becoming the island’s next Major League Baseball star. A bidding war for the outfielder seems inevitable. It’s possible Tomas could command as much as $100 million on the open market this offseason, with several teams rumored to be interested in the …
