The Viral Roundup – Treacherous Three Edition

The Viral Roundup – Treacherous Three Edition
Major League Baseball offers up a double dose of Game 3 action, Cincy needs OT to score a 5-0 start and the Chiefs more than just a game at home against Chicago. Here's the minty fresh world of sports you're waking up to on October 12, 2015.

Did You Hear?

The Jays live to see another day. Texas, a -113 moneyline underdog, dropped an opportunity to sweep Toronto and suffered a 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Blue Jays. Marco Estrada provided six plus innings of work on the mound for Toronto and Troy Tulowitzki went 2-3 at the plate with a homer in the win. Game 4 takes place today in Arlington.

Did You See?

Alexander Ovechkin is very good at professional ice hockey and he has the seemingly endless highlight reel to back it up. He added to his spectacular collection of must-see goals with another gem on Saturday night versus the New Jersey Devils. Check out this incredible end-to-end lamp-lighter from Ovi in Washington’s 5-3 victory over Jersey. By the way, Washington’s considered an 18/1 shot to win the Stanley Cup this year.

Did You Know?

- A lot can happen in a week. The Houston Astros have gone from nearly missing the playoffs to a spot where they’re one win away from a spot in the ALCS. The ‘Stros, a light +110 moneyline home underdog, enjoyed a strong five-hit seven inning outing from southpaw phenom to earn a 4-2 victory over the defending AL champs from Kansas City. Carlos Gomez and Chris Carter both went yard in the win and Houston can sew up the series at a deciding 3-1 this afternoon at Minute Maid Park.

- The Kansas City Chiefs are in a rough place right now. Andy Reid’s squad went into Sunday’s action as a 9.5 point home favourite and existed with an 18-17 loss to Chicago and star rusher Jamaal Charles exited the game with what Reid described as a torn ACL. Oof. The Bears rallied from a 17-3 deficit at the half to earn their second straight victory and QB Jay Cutler threw for 252 yards and 2 TDs in the win. Chicago heads to Motown next week to face the division rival Detroit Lions, while Kansas City prepares for a road date with Minnesota.

- It may have taken more than sixty minutes to get there, but the Cincinnati Bengals are now 5-0 on the season. The Bengals (favoured by a field goal on Sunday) edged the resurgent Seattle Seahawks 27-24 in overtime with kicker Mike Nugent kicking the necessary tying and winning FGs to score the home victory. Andy Dalton and the Bengals fought back from a daunting 17 point 4th quarter deficit to keep their winning ways going and tight end Tyler Eifert dazzled with 80 yards receiving and two catches.

- A pick six has granted Atlanta a 5-0 start to the season. Robert Alford hit paydirt after snagging a Kirk Cousins pass and taking it to the endzone for an OT TD as Atlanta topped Washington 25-19. This matinee tilt boasted no shortage of back-and-forth drama and Devonta Freeman looked great for ATL coming up three yards short of a 200 combined yard day at the office. The Falcons can hit 6-0 on Thursday versus the hapless New Orleans Saints.
