DeMarcus Cousins’ name has been a focal point of the NBA rumor mill for more than a year, and that doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon.

First place in the AFC West division is at stake Sunday night in Oakland when the Raiders host the defending champion Broncos in Week 9’s best matchup.

The New York Rangers began the second period of Saturday’s game against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden with a 2-1 lead, but should both of their goals have counted? The answer probably is yes. But it was close. The Rangers came dangerously close to playing a puck with a high stick on one of the goals, although upon …

Scary doesn’t even begin to describe what happened to Tommy Armstrong Jr. during Saturday’s game against Ohio State. The Nebraska Cornhuskers quarterback was running down the sideline when he was cleanly tackled by a Buckeye defender, but there was nothing clean about the way Armstrong fell to the ground. He landed awkwardly on his side, …
