The Viral Roundup – Hab Muscles Edition

The Viral Roundup – Hab Muscles Edition
Montreal wins an OT thriller versus Vancouver, the Bengals suffer their first loss of 2015 and injury questions abound across the National Football League. Here's the sparkling new world of sports you're waking up to on November 17, 2015.

Did You Hear?

It took more than 60 minutes for Montreal to notch their fourteenth win of the year, but David Desharnais was able to lock that up thanks to his OT winner last night. Montreal edged Vancouver 4-3 in front of a sold out Bell Centre and rookie netminder Mike Condon earned another big win. Max Pacioretty picked up his ninth marker of the year in the victory. The Habs are currently pegged as a 9/1 Futures board wager to win the Stanley Cup this summer.

If things seem absolutely bonkers in the march to the National College Football Playoff, that’s because things absolutely bonkers. Week 11 featured more upsets, more one loss chaos and even more Big 12 bubble bursting. (Sorry, Baylor.) Need a hilarious recap of how it all went down? Check out SB Nation’s “Wake Up! College Football” summary of what went down. It’s funny, informative and there are coffee mugs involved. Speaking of college football, the latest edition of the playoff rankings will tumble out today at 9:30 PM ET.

 

Did You Know?

- Houston’s home woes continue on in this early NBA season. The Rockets, a five point home favourite on Monday, dropped their fourth straight contest with a 111-95 defeat at the hands of the Celtics. Avery Bradley scored 20 off the bench for Boston and Isaiah Thomas provided 23 points in the win. Rockets megastar James Harden was a disasterous -27 on the court and will look to bounce back tomorrow night against Portland.

- Cincinnati drops to 8-1 on the season after a loss in primetime. Houston edged the Bengals 10-6 on Monday Night Football with TJ Yates taking over at QB for the winning squad. Yates stepped in for a concussed Brian Hoyer and led the Texans late with a game-winning TD coming from his pass to DeAndre Hopkins that hit paydirt. The high-powered Bengals offense sputtered out in this AFC showdown. Andy Dalton threw an interception with under 200 yards passing in the loss.

- We have some answers on the health of Peyton Manning even if it’s unclear how he’ll be out for. The Broncos quarterback was revealed to have a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot, with coach Gary Kubiak insisting that #18 will start if he’s healthy enough. Later on Monday, Peyton was ruled out the team’s next game. On Sunday, Manning was yanked in Denver’s 29-13 loss to Kansas City after throwing four picks and generally having an ugly afternoon. (Brock Osweiler played the role of substitute pivot in that AFC West matchup and will get the start in Week 11.) The Broncos are two point road favourites next week for their clash with Chicago.

- Victor Cruz looks to be a no-go for the remainder of 2015. Season-ending calf surgery is in the cards for the Giants wideout who has been in recovery mode since partway through New York’s 2014 campaign. The original injury was to Cruz’s knee but that changed after a calf injury obtained during training camp. Questions abound as to whether or not this means the G-Men will want to part ways with the shelved star reciever this offseason.
