High-scoring affair between Rams, Chiefs entertaining, but not a classic

- Associated Press

Without a doubt, the Monday-night scoring extravaganza between the Rams and Chiefs was entertaining. It had more spectacular plays and head-spinning twists than a game of Madden or a matchup of teams from college football’s defense-challenged conference. As for it being a pro football classic, no way.

Wizards indicate once-unthinkable team shakeup may be near

- The Washington Times

According to ESPN, the Wizards have indicated to teams that everyone on their roster is available — including stars Bradley Beal and John Wall. That doesn’t mean a trade is coming, but the Wizards were previously resistant to including Wall or Beal in trade talks. What changed? A recent explosive, f-bomb-filled practice might have something to do with it.

Teammates, Gruden say McCoy has what Redskins need
