U.S. Soccer star Julie Johnston Ertz was not able to watch her husband, Eagles tight end Zach Ertz, play in Sunday’s NFC championship game. She had her own game, the U.S. Women’s National Team’s season-opener against Denmark in San Diego, which ended up being a 5-1 victory for the Americans.
Hawks: The team’s best 3-point veteran shooters, F Ersan Ilyasova and G Marco Belinelli, were a combined 0 for 12 beyond the arc. Atlanta finished 11 for 48. … The Hawks have dropped three straight in the Bulls series after winning seven in a row.
Chicago did as it pleased in the first half, dishing out 18 assists on 21 field goals to begin the third quarter with a 55-38 lead. They scored the game’s first 14 points in the paint on five dunks, and Atlanta had no one capable inside to defend Lopez, who had 16 before intermission on 8 for 9 shooting.
Portis finished with 14 points and Justin Holiday had 13 for the Bulls.
We knew it was going to be an important game for us after a tough loss against Golden State, Nikola Mirotic said. I think that game gave us confidence that we can beat any team in the league.
Well, allow Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman to explain why Church’s decision in real time isn’t so easy.
The hit on Gronk is the only way Church could have done his job without just obliterating Gronks knee. If he would have just hit him low most ppl would calm him dirty. So there is nothing he can do to make everyone happy and do his job. Unless you think he should let him catch
Sherman also seemed to take umbrage with a pass interference call on the same drive, a penalty that put the Patriots in the red zone and led to a touchdown just before halftime.
