Adam Lallana ruled out of Southampton clash

Lallana has been in impressive form of late and scored England's opening goal from the penalty spot, after Jamie Vardy had been pulled down when latching on to a through pass from the Liverpool midfielder. Lallana had provided the long-range through ball to the Leicester City striker and deservedly slotted home his third goal in as many games for England . Read More

Rams spoil Petty's first NFL start in 9-6 win over Jets

But the Jets still should hand Petty the keys now and see what he's got. "I'm excited. There are a lot of things to pull from and get better". That dropped NY to 3-7, with its playoff hopes now barely a flicker. "He was calm, he was poised when he was out there", Bowles said. Petty, a fourth-round draft pick out of Baylor a year ago, went 19 of 32 for 163 yards with a touchdown and the loss-sealing interception. Read More

Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool star wants Tottenham switch

Sturridge, who joined Liverpool from Premier League rivals Chelsea back in January 2013 following his reported £12m switch, is now behind Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi in Jurgen Klopp's pecking order on Merseyside. On a person level though this doesn't suffice, but he's far too good to move to either West Ham or Stoke. The German coach has put his faith in Roberto Firmino as a false nine rather than Sturridge, leading to reports the 27-year-old could call time on his spell in ... Read More

#DALvsPIT: The Dallas Cowboys Win If…

When he's been double-covered, Prescott has thrown elsewhere. Romo has been practicing this week and it was reported earlier that his availability to actually play in games would be left up to the coaching staff. Rod Marinelli's defense is the only one that hasn't allowed a 100-yard rusher or 100-yard receiver this year. Then, as this seven-game winning streak progressed, the talk revolved around sticking with the hot hand. Read More
