    Dak Prescott apologized for condoning fans throwing objects at the referees after the Dallas Cowboys were knocked out of the playoffs Sunday afternoon. Dallas lost to the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 following a controversial play call which saw Prescott run a quarterback draw with 14 seconds left and no timeouts. As Prescott and his offensive line were set to stop the clock in hopes of running one more play, the umpire came charging through to spot the ball, but time ran out, ending the game abruptly. After the game, Prescott responded to a question about Cowboys fans throwing objects on the field, calling it “sad” because the quarterback believed the crowd was targeting his teammates. When Prescott was corrected and informed those objects were actually directed at the refs, the quarterback changed his tune, saying, “credit to them then.” “The fans felt the same way as us,” Prescott added. “I guess that’s why the refs took off and got out of there so fast.” Two days later, Prescott thought better of his comments and went on Twitter to apologize...
    HAKIM ZIYECH might have scored for Chelsea last night, but his lack of celebration didn't go unnoticed by pundits and fans alike.

He said: "This is what you play for. He's a fantastic talent, he hasn't hit the ground running in the Premier League as it's very different to the Dutch league. "But the not celebrating... It doesn't sit well for him as a lad." Cole added: "If he was in my team I'd be saying come on. You know when lads are not happy and they're not playing. But if I come off the bench and score a goal, it's a release of energy." Chelsea fans too...

    GETTY Deebo Samuel #19 of the San Francisco 49ers carries the ball after a reception against the Dallas Cowboys during the second quarter in the NFC Wild Card Playoff game. Sometimes, you just know. That was the case for San Francisco 49ers offensive threat Deebo Samuel against the Dallas Cowboys. After all, before Samuel scored to make it a 23-7, he had been waiting for his turn to get in the endzone. The 49ers had driven into Dallas territory four times at that point and had only come away with one touchdown through running back Elijah Mitchell capping off a stellar opening drive. So when Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was picked off by K’Waun Williams at the Cowboys’ 26-yard line, Deebo saw his chance. The former South Carolina Gamecock receiver told coach Kyle Shanahan and his teammates as much. Deebo Samuel is a dominant weapon on offense ???? @19problemz told Kyle Shanahan ????????????'???? ????????! and put the ball in the box.

While the Niners walked away with a 23-17 win and Shanahan then said that Jimmy G ought to be good to go against the Packers, an update from Fox Sports 1 insider Jason McIntyre says otherwise. “Texted someone in SF about 90 minutes ago asking about Jimmy G,” McIntyre tweeted. “LOTS of rumors the hand & shoulder are not good. Like ‘may not start’ good. And the line has surged marketwide to GB -6. Somebody has even more intel.”...

    A BLUNDER referee is reportedly facing a ‘lengthy ban’ after his disastrous error cost AC Milan victory against Spezia. Gazzetta dello Sport claims match official Marco Serra is in hot water after a high-profile mistake in Monday’s Serie A game. これがセリエAの審判です#MarcoSerra#拡散希望 pic.twitter.com/n0b0OkrBoy— ユウキル???????? (@Yukill_ACM) January 17, 2022 1Ref Marco Serra could face a lengthy ban after a huge error denied AC Milan victory against SpeziaCredit: EPA Milan thought they had scored a last-gasp winner when Junior Messias netted in the 92nd minute with the game level at 1-1. However, as the ball flew into the goal, Serra blew his whistle for a foul on Messias’ teammate Ante Rebic in the build-up. It meant Messias’ strike - which took place just TWO seconds after the foul on Rebic - did not count, denying Milan the chance to claim all three points. But there was yet more drama to come as Spezia regained possession before charging up the field and scoring their own 96th minute winner. Milan’s players lost their heads as they vented their anger at Serra’s costly mistake. And it’s...
    Emma Raducanu shone at a grand slam again as she marked her Australian Open debut with victory in the battle of the US Open champions against Sloane Stephens.

She lost just four points in a startling first set that admittedly was woeful from Stephens before the American hit her stride in the second. That set up a first ever decider at this level for Raducanu, and she could not have handled it any better, keeping her cool and striking the ball with confidence to clinch victory after an hour and 45 minutes.

    DETROIT, MICHIGAN – JANUARY 09: Head coach Matt LaFleur of the Green Bay Packers looks on during the first half against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on January 09, 2022 in Detroit, Michigan. (Photo by Rey Del Rio/Getty Images) The Packers’ hopeful road to a Super Bowl title begins with a home game against the 49ers. Here’s how Green Bay will roll San Francisco.  The 49ers ended the Cowboys’ hopes for a Super Bowl berth in Dallas last weekend and they want to do the same to the Packers on Saturday night. Unfortunately for Jimmy Garoppolo, his trip to Lambeau Field isn’t going to go according to plan. The Packers have home field advantage for a reason. They’ve been the NFC’s best team all year long and they will play like it in their first postseason matchup of the season. Aaron Rodgers can win games with his sheer force of will in the playoffs. Green Bay won’t need that kind of performance from their star quarterback to prevail this weekend. Read on to discover five bold predictions on how...
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs had to learn to dink and dunk their way through this entire season, contrary to every instinct of go for broke quarterback Patrick Mahomes, as opposing defenses simply refused to let themselves get beaten deep. You can bet they relished the opportunity to open up the offense against Pittsburgh on Sunday night. Mahomes wound up throwing for 404 yards and five touchdowns, most coming in the final three quarters, as the Chiefs turned an early seven-point deficit into a 42-21 rout. It was a vintage performance by the Kansas City offense, a throwback of sorts to the past few years, when Mahomes and his fleet of playmakers made defensive backfields look silly. “In the playoffs, teams get a little more aggressive,” Mahomes explained. “They played a little bit more single-safety-middle, especially toward the end of the second quarter, and we showed that we can always be explosive. That’s who we are. We’re going to make big plays happen if we get the looks, and I think over the season we’ve...
