By Joe Reedy Associated Press Published 12:05 AM EST Nov 19, 2018 Carson, Calif. — Brandon McManus kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired on Sunday to give the Denver Broncos a 23-22 win and snap the Los Angeles Chargers’ six-game winning streak. Denver got the ball at its own 8 with 1:51 remaining, and Case Keenum orchestrated a seven-play, 76-yard drive. Keenum, who was 19-of-32 for 205 yards, completed five passes for 86 yards during the drive, including a 30-yarder to Courtland Sutton to the Denver 16. Keenum then spiked the ball and McManus’ kick split the uprights. Phillip Lindsay had 11 carries for 79 yards and Sutton had three receptions for 78 yards. Denver (4-6) had lost six of seven coming into the game. “When the game is tight, Case has made the most plays. He is a gamer,” Denver coach Vance Joseph said. “We’ve been in four or five of these games and didn’t make enough plays to win. Today we didn’t hope to … [Read more...] about Broncos ice Chargers on last-second kick

After a divisive confirmation fight, Brett Kavanaugh will be a Supreme Court justice—and he leaves a trail of bitterness on both sides of the political aisle. Democrats are furious at what they see as a sham FBI investigation of allegations that Kavanaugh mistreated women; Republicans are equally outraged at what they’re calling the attempted character assassination of a decent and qualified justice. One thing seems clear: The wounds opened by the Kavanaugh battle won’t heal anytime soon. We asked a panel of legal scholars to assess whether Kavanaugh will be able to move past the rancor and establish his credibility on the high court—or whether he’ll be forever damaged by how he got there. Here’s what they told us:Story Continued Below *** ‘The public deserves better’Deborah Rhode is the Ernest W. McFarland professor of law at Stanford Law School.

For years, it seemed possible that someday Red Sox fans would hear a giddy announcer call a Giancarlo Stanton home run from the Boston radio booth. After all, in the eight years he spent walloping homers for the usually hapless Florida/Miami Marlins, Stanton’s name often came up in Red Sox trade rumors. Stanton, who signed a 13-year, $325 million contract extension in December 2014 that practically priced him out of Miami before the ink was dry, never got to call Fenway home. Instead, Marlins CEO and part owner Derek Jeter traded/salary dumped the 2017 National League Most Valuable Player to the Yankees this past offseason for Starlin Castro and what amounted to a couple of gift baskets. Once coveted, Stanton was now a Red Sox competitor. And yet due to a gimmick in the Red Sox and Yankees broadcast booths Thursday night, there was a joyous call on the Boston airwaves when Stanton hit a fourth-inning grand slam. During the fourth inning Thursday night, WEEI’s Joe … [Read more...] about Hearing WFAN’s John Sterling home run call on WEEI was a weird juxtaposition
