After Ireland's first win over the All Blacks at the 29th attempt two weeks ago, Hansen is claiming that Schmidt's side will go into the Aviva Stadium game as favourites although the bookies don't see it that way. Ireland's Devin Toner and Donnacha Ryan held the upperhand in the lineouts in Chicago but New Zealand started that match with just one lock in Patrick Tuipulotu who packed down alongside Jerome Kaino.

    At about 7 am on Sunday morning, Otis Tyrone McKane walked through the front doors of the San Antonio Police Department Public Safety Headquarters, a fortress-like complex at the corner of Santa Rosa and Cesar Chavez that houses administrative and investigative offices for both the local police and fire departments.

    Texas is 5-6 after losing to lowly Kansas on Saturday. "If they hit the jackpot, they go a national championship, win the Big 12, they'll know who got 'em there", Boyette Jr. "We're a family in there", Buechele said, before adding of Strong: "We're going to fight for him this next game". We have a game to get ready for against TCU on Friday, and I hope our fans will come out and support our team.

    This poor defensive display follows a similarly fragile performance away at Burnley where they conceded three times, and the 2-1 defeat to City marks five straight defeats. "This was maybe good step, but in the long-term you have to play better". Of course we have a new player now to help us achieve our targets. "So I was a little bit anxious against Middlesbrough, when you don't concede absolutely anything and you create enough chances to win the game [and still don't]".

    OMINOUS DEBUT: New Vikings kicker Kai Forbath made a short field goal and three extra points, but he had one PAT blocked in the second quarter that loomed large at the end. Adam Thielen is a nice story, but he's far from a go-to receiver. They'll try to turn it around Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium against the Cardinals , who broke their hearts on December 28, 2003, at Sun Devil Stadium in one of the most memorable finishes to an National Football League game this century.

    A win at Anfield, coupled with results going in their favour elsewhere, would see Sunderland climb out of the relegation zone. The match will take place at Anfield. "It's our job to show from the first second as a big group, crowd involved, that we are different - here it's different". Sunderland's resurgence has coincided with the return to goal-scoring form of Anichebe, who now has three in two following his brace against Hull.

    Julian Brandt put Leverkusen back in front again on the stroke of half-time, but Hakan Calhanoglu missed a second-half penalty which would have made it 3-1 and Leipzig made the hosts pay by levelling through Emil Forsberg. Uli Hoeness' seemingly imminent return as club president and speculation over contract extensions for seasoned professionals such as Arjen Robben , Franck Ribery and Xabi Alonso all add to a sense of benign empire in Bavaria.

    Cowboys top Washington, continue rolling to 10th straight win

    The Redskins (6-4-1) got swept by their NFC East rival, and the defending division champions fell 3 1/2 games behind Dallas with five games left. This wasn't like the Dallas-Pittsburgh game - still the most entertaining of the season - when good offenses took advantage of bad defenses in a game that always seemed like the best team would come out on top.
