The Jays finished off the Rangers on Sunday while the Indians eliminated the Red Sox in Boston last night. And they did that because they do all the little things well. The Cubs' comeback win on Tuesday night in Game 4 of the NLDS went a long ways towards aligning their rotation for the next round. But they are hoping momentum from the rally against the Giants, their experience from previous year and home-field advantage will lead to a different result this time around.

So, now we have that out of the way, let's get stuck into my choices... After a 35-year journey to the Premier League, which began at Ohio Bobcats, Bob Bradley has promised a "fresh start" at Swansea , who are 17th in the table. In addition, his performances mean he is on the verge of winning his first England cap. He was once a must-have fantasy asset as he scored 18 goals on the way to relegation with QPR, and if he can rediscover and maintain this form then he is a bargain for only 6.3m.

Gruden said Cravens' participation was limited. Mason Foster and Ryan Kerrigan were a full go. "He took a couple of shots but none that were alarming as far as we were concerned, as far as keeping him out of the game", Gruden said.

He's goes about it the right way. "(Dak) has come in and done what we've asked him to do. Bryant has missed two games with a hairline fracture in his right knee. Dalton finished 29 of 41 for 269 yards. "I just know that I do expect a good report Monday", Jones said. While Prescott has unquestionably been fantastic, especially for a rookie, the most likely scenario still has Romo retaking the reins whenever he is physically ready.

Trent Boult was Ashwin's sixth victim of the day as he miscued a heave to Cheteshwar Pujara at midwicket to signal an end to New Zealand's innings, which ended 258 runs in the deficit. Guptill was under pressure after scores of 21, 0, 13 and 24 in the last two tests but he batted well, hitting two sixes and 10 fours. Having played an unwitting hand in his dismissal, Ronchi followed Guptill into the dressing room in Ashwin's next over, when drift caused him to play down the wrong line of an ...

A competition has brewed among the Crimson Tide defense. Yesterday marked the first leg of the SEC gauntlet as Alabama rolled into Fayetteville to play only the second truly unsafe team on what has been a subpar early season slate. Alabama took a 35-17 lead into the half, racking up 396 yards on 34 plays. This is a very underrated unit that Bama will have to contend with. This is a defense that was expected to be better (not great) than last season, but through six games it is on pace ...
