Trump's presence did cause some disruption ahead of the game as a result of security ( manned by Secret Service ) and presidential gridlock - all fairly normal for a commander-in-chief attending a high-profile sporting event. Trump has targeted the NFL and some of its players who have protested racial injustice by taking a knee during the National Anthem. The White House did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily News .

A little man. You don't know very well what the situation is. But you have to know the story very well before hurting another person. I repeat, when you insult or offend another person it means that you are a little man. I don't have anything to clarify and then I think it will be the opportunity in the game against [Manchester] United at Old Trafford to clarify if there is someone to clarify.

Claude Puel's men breathed a collective sigh of relief in the final minute of this afternoon's game after a shot from Fleetwood's Ashley Hunter struck the post. Part of Papa John's' sponsorship agreement was a lovely stunt. The England global might be fit for the replay, which is scheduled for Jan 16 at Leicester's King Power stadium.

And if that is the case, Smith's career in Kansas City will be summed up by that errant throw over the middle. The Chiefs led the Tennessee Titans 21-3 entering the start of the third quarter. For many Chiefs fans, this will be coming one game too late. But again, Smith hopes to return to the Chiefs next season. Do I think it would be worth making him a starting quarterback? Yes.

No, we want the team to win. The Browns went 0-16 this season. Ogbah isn't alone. Some Browns fans are angry about the parade. If the Browns play their cards right, the organization will be able to select them all. "It's a happy thing because you know what, every time we leave the game, it's like 'Really?" Why should the parade be a celebration, along with the self-deprecation that will come along with the event? The signs, from urging the firing of Hue Jackson to having owner Jimmy ...

It was thought Kane was on the verge of signing a new deal worth £200,000 a week. "Not that I know of", he said . "I've always said: keep progressing, keep getting better, start winning trophies". The best chance of the first half though actually fell the way of the visitors as a brilliant curling effort from Nadjim Abdou was brilliantly saved by Michel Vorm , who tipped the ball onto the crossbar.

Cleveland, 5-5 in its past 10 games, is getting healthy, most notably with the return of guard Isaiah Thomas from a hip injury . "Anytime you get a steal it allows us to get the ball in the open court and not play against a set defense". Payton got into a shouting match with Thomas in the first half and both players were given a technical. The year anniversary of the Cavaliers' trade for Kyle Korver is cause for both looking back and contemplation of what move or moves the team will make ...

Saban insists it's not personal when coaching against a former assistant - although his 11-0 record in those games suggests otherwise. "Don't try to be somebody else". "He does a really good job of getting the ball out to his playmakers", Fitzpatrick said. As if that was not enough for opponents, Georgia can also turn to freshman D'Andre Smith, who has 603 yards on the ground and might be the biggest "home run" threat of the team's three main backs.

There's a good chance that Marcus Mariota is going to remember his first career playoff touchdown pass for the rest of his life and that's mainly because he threw it to himself. The Titans failed on the two-point conversion attempt. With the score at 21-16, the Titans lined up for two, but they ran a terribly designed play that gained one-yard and would've been nullified by an Illegal Shift penalty regardless.
