TODAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION

The Phillies head south to battle the favored Rays in Game 1 of the World Series. 8 p.m., Chs. 5, 45

NEWSMAKERS

David Price

Hotshot rookie hurler won’t get a World Series start for the Rays, who hope he will continue to mow them down late like he did against Boston.

Cole Hamels

He’s considered the best pitcher in the series, but he gets a stiff Game 1 test when he and the Phillies face fireballer Scott Kazmir.

Jerry Jones

Dallas has no QB and injured and suspended stars on defense … and the Cowboys owner is making food deals with the Yankees?

Mike Singletary

“Samurai Mike” finally gets his NFL head job - he had been passed over four times - but he has his work cut out for him with the underachieving 49ers.

Tiger Woods

Golfers everywhere got giddy just seeing the injured superstar out on the course again. Just imagine how the guy he caddied for felt.

After breaking down film of the Redskins‘ win, Ryan O’Halloran shared some observations on our NFL blog, Redskins 360.

— Fred Davis played 12 snaps and not just at tight end. He lined up at slot left receiver on the game’s first play. As Davis gets more playing time, it means less for Todd Yoder.

— Jason Taylor played 48 snaps and wasn’t credited with a tackle. That’s hard to do.

— The Redskins did a good job on delayed blitzes with London Fletcher. A couple times, Fletcher would rush late and be unblocked up the middle, allowing him to pressure Derek Anderson.

— Rock Cartwright played eight snaps and Shaun Alexander three. Ladell Betts had been averaging between 15-20 snaps, so Jim Zorn kept Clinton Portis on the field more often this week.
