Did You Hear?
The New York Mets are two wins away from their first World Series appearance since 2000. The Mets (a +135 moneyline underdog) improve to 2-0 in the 2015 NLCS thanks to a 4-1 Sunday night thumping of the Cubs. New York teed off on Jake Arrieta for three runs in the first inning to hand the Chicago star his first loss of the postseason. The series shifts to Wrigley Field tomorrow for Game 3 with Jacob deGrom on the mound for New York and Chicago counters with Kyle Hendricks.

It’s hard to imagine a wilder finish this year than Michigan’s punting nightmare on Saturday. Michigan State scored a stunning 27-23 win over state rival Michigan when a punt to end the game ended in a fumble and a return. The Big House in Ann Arbor was stunned and so was everyone that tuned in for this unique Big 10 tilt. Check out the insanity by hitting play on the video below.

- Cincinnati is off to their third 6-0 start in franchise history. The mark was met on Sunday afternoon as Andy Dalton tossed three TD passes and racked up 243 yards through the air in a 34-21 road win over Buffalo. (Cincy was favoured by a field goal goaling into yesterday’s matchup.) EJ Manuel served as the substitute starting pivot for the Bills as regular QB Tyrod Taylor was dealing with injury woes. The game was initially tight at halftime (17-14), but the Bengals pulled away with multiple 3rd quarter trips to paydirt. The Bengals have a bye week on the horizon, so the shot at 7-0 won’t come until November 1′s meeting with the Steelers.
- The Denver Broncos needed to go beyond regulation time to hit their AFC West leading 6-0 record. Petyon Manning had a rough outing throwing three picks for the Browns to thrive on, but was spectacular in overtime driving Denver from their own 12 to Cleveland’s 16 to set up a 34-yard Brandon McManus field goal that clinched a 26-23 win. Winning their first six games is a good omen for the Broncos. Five of the six times they pulled off that feat it ended in a Super Bowl appearance.
- A hamstring injury had Michael Vick hitting the sidelines in the 3rd quarter, opening the door for Landry Jones to step up as the team’s super sub. Jones went 8-12 at QB with two TDs in a 25-13 comeback victory for Pittsburgh (a five point home underdog) versus the Arizona Cardinals. Not only did Jones have a good outing, but wideout Martavis Bryant had a noteworthy game with two TDs and 137 yards receiving. The Steelers now improve to 4-2 while the Cards hit 4-2 and have lost two of their last three games
