Dak Prescott continues strong start to lead Cowboys past Bears



  • Dallas move to 2-1 record with victory over struggling Chicago
  • Rookie quarterback records first passing touchdown of career

Dak Prescott led scoring drives on all four Dallas possessions in the first half before throwing his first career touchdown pass, and the Cowboys beat the Chicago Bears 31-17 on Sunday night to snap an eight-game home losing streak.

With his second straight win, Prescott doubled the number of victories the Cowboys (2-1) had in 14 games without injured quarterback Tony Romo over three seasons before the rookie fourth-round pick showed up.

Rory McIlroy excited at prospect of helping boyhood hero Clarke win Ryder Cup



Darren Clarke played an important part in McIlroys formative years as a golfer and the former world No1 sees the week in Hazeltine as an opportunity to repay his countryman

As Rory McIlroy is inevitably highlighted as a leader within Europes Ryder Cup team and a player the United States identify as a blue chip opponent, it will be easy to forget wide-eyed youthfulness. Whereas now McIlroy is a global superstar and four-time major champion, there was a time in the not-so distant past that Darren Clarke, Europes captain, was Northern Irelands revered golfing son.

Its probably close to 14 years ago when I first met Darren, McIlroy recalls. Id be quite sure Darren wouldnt really recollect the moment another star-struck kid stood staring at him but I hung on his every word back then.

It's becoming clear that Carson Wentz is no wacky fluke



The question of whether or not the Rams chose wisely by drafting Goff over Wentz is not quite answered. But a picture is beginning to emerge

I doubt I was the only one who went into this Sundays football spread expecting Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles to fall to Earth faster than the asteroid in Armageddon. After all, this was a rookie quarterback going against a proven defense and a veteran signal caller, Ben Roethlisberger, on offense. Plus, it wasnt as though Wentz and company suffered much competition in weeks one and two. The Bears (who kept their losing streak going against the Dallas Cowboys) and woeful Browns hardly count as a challenge and are both likely already out of playoff contention. The Eagles might have had a harder time beating 11 Verne Troyers than the Bears or the Browns. But then came the Steelers game.

A proper, unmistakeable rout of the Steelers cements Wentz as a legitimate force to be reckoned with. Finishing with 23 completions out of 31 attempts, 301 yards, and two touchdowns, it would be foolish to presume that this is some kind of wacky fluke or charming underdog story. The Eagles truly and completely walked over a team that on paper should contend for the AFC championship. Before today, the Steelers were 19-2 against rookie quarterbacks. They were 2-0 this season, beating the Bengals and Washington two teams that are legitimate playoff contenders. Wentz was not even supposed to be the Eagles starter, but his undeniable quality caused the Eagles to trade Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings a team desperate for a veteran behind center after losing Teddy Bridgewater for the season.

Man who discovered rare Billy the Kid photo: 'The hunt is a really grand thing'



Randy Guijarro paid $2 for the tintype and two other photographs at an antique shop in Fresno, California, and now the image is valued at $5m

The man who found a rare and expensive photograph of Billy the Kid playing croquet has some advice for other treasure hunters: get rummaging.

I hope this prompts others out there to look into trunks and attics because there are so many lost treasures out there, Randy Guijarro told the Guardian on Monday.

Donald Trump links Mexico border wall plan to Israel's 'successful' separation barrier



Republicans campaign highlights lengthy discussion between Trump and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu on securing borders

Donald Trump attempted to draw parallels between Israels separation barrier and his much-touted border wall pledge on Sunday after both presidential nominees met the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

In Trumps hour-long meeting with Netanyahu at his Trump Tower penthouse, the two reportedly discussed at length Israels successful experience with a security fence that helped secure its borders, according to the Trump campaign.

Woeful Ryan Fitzpatrick throws six interceptions in Jets loss to Chiefs



  • Fitzpatrick follows impressive game against Bills with dire performance
  • Russell Wilson injured in Seahawks victory over San Francisco 49ers
  • Carson Wentz on top form again as Eagles see off Steelers

Ryan Fitzpatrick is not known for his accuracy and he excelled himself against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, throwing six interceptions as the New York Jets lost 24-3 to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fitzpatrick was coming off a good game against the Buffalo Bills, in which he threw for two touchdowns and 374 yards. But against the Chiefs completed just 20 of his 44 attempts and was picked off six times. He does, at least, find himself in good company: Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and Joe Namath (three times) have all thrown six interceptions in a single game.
