Ireland head into Friday night's World Cup qualifier against Moldova knowing anything other than victory over the Group D basement boys could end their hopes of making it to Russian Federation next summer.

Carroll obviously is well connected in Southern California from his days as USC's head coach. While it's unclear if Seattle will continue standing throughout the season, the team has made it apparent they will stick together. Austin, the wide receiver used more often as a ball carrier by McVay, scored the game's first points when he took a handoff and high-stepped to the end zone early in the second quarter.
Cleveland outgained NY 175 yards to just 67 yards. The Browns remember McCown as a great teammate and leader. The Jets , on the other hand, have already exceeded expectations as they find themselves 2-2 and have their first opportunity of the season to be above.500 when it comes to their standings.

The D-backs have U-turned from "downtrodden franchise" to "team nobody wants to face in the postseason" so quickly that you can forgive their fans for having a bit of whiplash about the whole thing. After losing game seven of the World Series past year in dramatic fashion, the Indians are hoping to redeem themselves this time around. What Francona did tonight, though-which is pretty in line with how he's managed his bullpen throughout the year-really was genuinely smart bullpen use.
Chile , Colombia , Peru , Argentina and Paraguay are separated by two points in the middle of the table, with any of them in contention to finish fifth when qualifying concludes on Wednesday (NZT) next week.

Cy Young candidate Chris Sale (17-8, 2.90 ERA) will undoubtedly pitch Game 1 while he will either throw in Game 5 or in Game 4 on three days' rest.

Raikkonen could well have challenged for a win, given Ferrari's pace and that he qualified in second place. Ferrari's true pace has been masked at the last two rounds after Vettel and teammate Kimi Raikkonen both crashed out of the Singapore Grand Prix and then had their race weekends ruined by engine problems in Malaysia.
Tampa Bay will have Chris Conte as an every-down safety, and Ward practiced in a limited capacity the last two days, leaving the door open he could still play. QB Jameis Winston is still looking to get his timing down with the Buccaneers' speedy new wideout, but when he does Jackson should continue to be the NFL's best big-play receiver.
If the Red Sox are going to win this series, there better be a hope that we can keep Altuve off the base paths or else he will cause some trouble. Let's start with one statement: Astros manager A.J.

Glennon had two fumbles and two interceptions, and the mistake-prone Bears couldn't recover from their quarterback's terrible start in a 35-14 loss on Thursday night to the Green Bay Packers .
