Touchline tussle beckons for Klopp and Conte

Liverpool signed seven players in the summer transfer window as the 48-year-old looked to bridge the gap between them and their top-four rivals. Klopp has little to worry about in terms of the zest his youthful side are now showing for the game so his main worry lies in whether a more battle-hardened group of rivals might just have that extra edge on the night.

EAGLES: Wentz named starting QB

But Bradford was shipped to Minnesota last week, and Pederson thought enough of Wentz's preseason to name him the Week 1 starter. It's something now that we're prepared to do.

Prater gets redemption with late field in 39-35 win at Indy

Prater gets redemption with late field in 39-35 win at Indy

The Lions started on their own 25-yard line. "There may have been a couple situations you probably saw us walking down close just in case something happened where we needed to do so". "The stuff you can control - the penalties, the sins as you call it, the don't dos". Either way, :37 (the time left when the Colts scored what should have been a game-winning touchdown) was way too much time to leave an opponent while clinging to a one-point lead. Read More

Lukaku: I must be a serial killer in attack

The rookie Clevinger, on the other hand, has only gotten better. The timeline provided by the team indicates he could return for the playoffs, but any setback could shelve Salazar for the year.

Chiefs RB Charles likely to miss opener

But we're more concerned with this story's first chapter than its last. The most experienced cornerback on the Kansas City Chiefs' roster is entering his third year in the NFL.

David Luiz can be my Bonucci & Barzagli, claims Conte

Luiz can play in midfield as well as defence, but Conte views him only as a centre-back and will consider adjusting Chelsea's formation to accommodate him, Terry and Cahill. The coach is an incredible coach, he understands a lot of tactical things and I know he chooses every match the best line up, so if he needs to play three, four or two, it doesn't matter, I am there if he wants me to play.

Antonio Conte admits David Luiz signing could prompt formation change

Eden Hazard has aimed a swipe at Jose Mourinho by insisting Antonio Conte's man-management has improved the Chelsea dressing room after an "ugly" season. Chelsea have been playing 4-2-3-1 in recent years, but Conte has changed things by opting for 4-1-4-1 and has used the bench to good effect too. No good.'

Peterson said that Sam Bradford, who the Vikings acquired for a first-round pick and conditional 2018 pick , was not on anyone's radar because he was a starter for another team. I have a feeling that the Titans will have an abundance of options if the Vikings' offense can not find success early. The Titans are not a good football team, but they're not a pushover. Read More
