FOOTBALL

With a win on Monday Night Football, the Cincinnati Bengals handed the Pittsburgh Steelers its third straight loss and the possibility of losing the AFC North division title to the Cleveland Browns. The Steelers already clinched a playoff spot, but the Browns are now only one game behind Pittsburgh in the standings.

The NFL Pro Bowl will not be played this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the event will be held virtually and played on "Madden NFL 21".  There were some very familiar names chosen (Mahomes, Rodgers, Wilson, Allen, Watson, and Kyler Murray), but many felt some prime-time players were overlooked. The Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens, and Seattle Seahawks had seven selections apiece, while the Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, NY Jets, and Carolina Panthers had no players selected.

BASKETBALL

The NBA season kicks off tonight. The condensed season will take place outside of a bubble, so plan on some twists and turns over the next few months.
