Vikings playoff hopes live on, plus NHL hits pause in its season

Good morning sports fans, Wajih AlBaroudi is here with everything you need to know on this great Tuesday morning. We had two NFL games last night and have another pair to watch tonight. But that’s not all NFL today. We’ll also take a look at what the NHL is doing about their COVID-19 crisis and more.

Without further advice, let’s scroll.

Good morning to everyone but especially…

MIKE ZIMMER AND MINNESOTA VIKINGS

It’s been an intense season for Minnesota Vikings and Coach Mike Zimmer, but Monday’s game is anything but. The Vikings dominate the Bears 17-9 in a game feels much more out of place and Minnesota did the same with gameplay that a defensive expert like Zimmer would certainly appreciate.

One last second, time passes garbage time from Bears biên full-back Justin Fields arrive tight end Jesper Horsted kept the Vikings from their best one-game defensive performance (three points), but the Vikings still:

  • Posted running rate 33-24
  • Forcibly groping three times
  • Blocked a field target

This is ours NFL scribe Tyler Sullivan with More on how great the Minnesota defense was:

  • Sullivan: “The Vikings’ defense held back the Bears once in a total of five trips to the red zone, and created multiple reversals in that key area… to score. They were also strong. in third place, blocking Chicago with 10 of their 12 chances.”

With so many “matches” this season, Zimmer finally enjoyed a match that couldn’t raise his blood pressure. DJ Wonnum last defense was the star of Minnesota’s defensive tour, posted eight tackles, three holsters and four 1/4 . shots. Safety Harrison Smith and full-back Cameron Dantzler more seven and six ball phases, respectively.

Team Viking (7-7) will play the Los Angeles Rams at home next and then the Green Bay Packers on the road before concluding their season with the Bears in Minnesota. Zimmer will surely be happy to see the Crime Bears again.

Honor mention:

And not a good morning for…

USATSI

CLEVELAND BROWN

The Brown entered this season with sky-high expectations after winning the playoffs during coach Kevin Stefanski’s first year in charge. This season, however, has drawn a closer resemblance to the old repressed Browns teams, which include Monday’s 16-14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Cleveland.

Raiders defender Derek Carr personally selected the Browns in the last drive to set up 48-yard goal for Daniel Carlson (more on that later), beat Cleveland 7-7 and finally in AFC North. The game was postponed from Saturday to Monday due to the COVID-19 outbreak among the Bears.

The loss is crushing for Cleveland, where desperately need a win to keep playoff hopes. However, the group played without Stefanski – who tested positive for COVID for the second consecutive season – and 18 regular collaborators, consists of:

  • QB Baker Mayfield
  • QB Case Keenum
  • RB Kareem Hunt
  • WR Jarvis Landry
  • TE Austin Hooper
  • OT Jedrick Wills
  • DE Jadeveon Clowney
  • DT Malik McDowell
  • LB Mack Wilson
  • CB Troy . Hill
  • S Ronnie Harrison
  • S Grant Delpit
  • P Jamie Gillan

Cleveland has a tough remaining schedule: at the Green Bay Packers, at the Pittsburgh Steelers and home to the Cincinnati Bengals. With five AFC teams locked at 7-7, the Browns’ chances of reaching the knockout stages for the second time since 2002 become slimmer.

NHL pauses season over Christmas over COVID-19 concerns

USATSI

After the rash COVID-19 outbreak hits NHL, the league announced late last night that they have decided to pause the season over Christmas Day to prevent any further spread. Since Monday night, 11 teams have paused their seasons individually and more than 15% of the players of the league are still in virus protocols.

Only three games left until NHLwill be closed on Wednesday night. Here’s the progress for what lies ahead:

  • December 22: All team facilities closed
  • December 26: Players return, get a COVID test
  • December 27: The game continues

The NHL hopes their decision to pause the season now will end – or at least slow down – the rapid spread of COVID in the league. All players – except Detroit Red Wings’ Tyler Bertuzzi – have been vaccinated, but more than 40 matches have been postponed while more than a third of the league has had to pause each season.

Earlier this week, the NHL suspended all games related to Canada-US travel to combat the spread of COVID and established new rules in their virus protocols. But perhaps it is too late, considering the position of the tournament right now.

The other problem here is that the NHL season will most likely be paused removed the possibility of its players competing at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. Plan on taking a three-week break for the Olympics – this time would probably be better used for teams to play games that have been postponed this month.

The Complicated Case of the Hall of Fame for Alex Rodriguez

Alex Rodriguez is one of the most polarizing figures in baseball history and the debate surrounding the three-time MVP will only intensify as he qualify for the Baseball Hall of Fame for the first time in 2022. Let’s learn about pros and cons of his candidacy with our help MLB scribe Matt Snyder.

On paper, the case of Rodriguez’s Hall of Fame is unfounded. He is a 14-time All-Star, 10 Silver Slugger and two Golden Gloves who took the lead? New York Yankees to one 2009 World Series title.

46 years old is also:

  • One of three players with 2,000 career runs and RBI, participation Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth
  • Wednesday above all-time home run list with 696
  • Saturday above all-time basic extra hit list with 1.275
  • 12nd in Vocational WAR between players positioned at 117.5

Although those numbers are impressive, it’s quite famous to be MLB suspended Rodriguez for the entire 2014 season, citing his use and possession of PED “for many years”.“and his attempt to obstruct the federation’s investigation into steroid use.

So Rodriguez’s case is complicated – at least:

  • Snyder: “However, I’m sure A-Rod will get somewhere between 5 and 75% of the vote this winter, which means we’ll discuss him again next year. And maybe next year. And then the next year…”

And the debate about Rodriguez raged.

Why is it so special to watch Tiger Woods and his son play golf together

Only 10 months later Tiger Woods bag A career-ending lower body injury in a car accident, the 82-time PGA Tour champion returned to competitive golf at Sunday’s PNC Championship in Orlando. He compete with his son, Charlie, to create one of the healthiest sports viewing experiences of the year.

  • Club after rotation

  • Raise your hat
  • Hands on hips pose
  • Rub your nose

The The rivalry between Tiger and Charlie Woods is moving, like ours golf scribe Kyle Porter wrote:

  • Porters: “The performance they put on at the PNC Championship was a million things. It was a joy to be relived, a dedication to crafting rework, and continuing Tiger’s growth as a team player. a father. But most of all, it’s a revelation that our kids have always watched.”

A remarkable return and family story combined into one.
