Twitter reacts to dense fog covering Gillette Stadium

The Sports Daily Twitter reacts to dense fog covering Gillette Stadium It seemed as if the Super Bowl LI rematch on Sunday night would actually have the makings of a normal game, with the only surprise being the Falcons failing to score a point in the first half. But when the two teams came out and took the field for the start of the third quarter, it looked as if they had changed venues. The first half of the game was played in a crisp, clear night at Gillette Stadium, but the second half was blanketed by fog. Here’s what...

Martavis Bryant claims he’s a better player than teammate in Instagram post

The Sports Daily Martavis Bryant claims he’s a better player than teammate in Instagram post Steelers receiver Martavis Bryant might want to consider deactivating his social media accounts, because he continues to say things that aren’t good for the locker room culture. It appeared as if Bryant was content about his role in the offense, after he shot down rumors about a possible request to be traded with this tweet last Sunday. Big win today and tomorrow right back to work tomorrow I am happy to be a steeler and can’t wait to reach number 7 this year. — Martavis...

Jessie James Decker criticizes Titans coaches for not targeting husband vs Browns

The Sports Daily Jessie James Decker criticizes Titans coaches for not targeting husband vs Browns Titans receiver Eric Decker saw only two targets — and didn’t catch any balls — in Sunday’s 12-9 overtime win over the Browns. It’s safe to say his wife was not happy about it. Tennessee was underwhelming on offense, racking up just 269 total yards and failing to score a touchdown — despite forcing three turnovers. One particular person seems to have the antidote for the Titans’ offensive woes, though. Jessie James Decker believes the issue lies in the playcalling, specifically involving her husband’s limited...

Twitter reacts to Ben Roethlisberger’s ‘oh’ face going viral, getting meme treatment

The Sports Daily Twitter reacts to Ben Roethlisberger’s ‘oh’ face going viral, getting meme treatment Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has delivered some priceless reactions over the years, but one particular facial expression from Sunday’s game against the Bengals may top the list. What made Roethlisberger’s expression so great is that it was a completely natural reaction. It happened after the Bengals held Steelers running back Terrell Watson to a minimal gain on a fourth-and-one scenario, leading to a turnover on downs. Watson was initially given the first down, but Bengals coach Marvin Lewis challenged the play, and it was overturned...

Jozy Altidore gets beer thrown at him, Sebastian Giovinco drinks out of cup

The Sports Daily Jozy Altidore gets beer thrown at him, Sebastian Giovinco drinks out of cup Toronto FC essentially had nothing to play for in Sunday’s match against Atlanta United, as they had already locked up a Supporters’ Shield win. But that didn’t seem to affect striker Jozy Altidore, who scored a sweet goal to level Sunday’s game at 1-1. Altidore wasn’t exactly showered with praise from the visiting fans afterward — in fact, it was quite the opposite. One of the fans threw a cup of beer at him, which didn’t seem to affect Altidore all that much, as...

Le’Veon Bell destroys Bengals CB with stiff-arm (VIDEO)

The Sports Daily Le’Veon Bell destroys Bengals CB with stiff-arm (VIDEO) Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell is known for being a patient runner, but he can also outmuscle his opponents if need be. That’s what happened during Sunday’s game against the Bengals, when Bell sent Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick to the turf. Bell caught a checkdown pass that should’ve gone for a short gain, but the Steelers running back turned it into a lot more. He used a few shifty moves to get going in the open field, and was then met by Fitzpatrick. Bell wasn’t fazed, though, as he...

The Sports Daily Doug Baldwin shoves coach Tom Cable on sideline (VIDEO) Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin was not happy with offensive line coach Tom Cable during Sunday’s game against the Giants, and clearly let him know about it. It’s unclear exactly what set Baldwin off — maybe it was the Seahawks’ offensive woes, as they were shut out for much of the first half — but his frustration seemed to get the best of him. It happened late in the first half, when Cable rallied some players around him and began speaking. Baldwin apparently wanted to get a few words...

Vontaze Burfict kicks Steelers FB in face, yet another cheap shot (VIDEO)

The Sports Daily Vontaze Burfict kicks Steelers FB in face, yet another cheap shot (VIDEO) It’s time for the league to send a message to Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict that his dirty play on the field will not be tolerated. Burfict — like Ndamukong Suh in the past — has found himself in too many “questionable” situations, and it’s no longer looking like the contact from his end is accidental. The Bengals linebacker seems to have an affinity for targeting Steelers players, and Sunday’s matchup was no different. Watch him kick Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix in the helmet at the...

John Wall warns Lonzo Ball about being targeted by other players

The Sports Daily John Wall warns Lonzo Ball about being targeted by other players It took only one game for Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball to get called out by another NBA player. Ball, playing in his first career NBA game, got shut down by Patrick Beverley on Thursday, who held him to just three points on a one-of-six shooting performance. Beverley had plenty to say about Ball after shutting him down, and that’s probably not how the Lakers guard had hoped his first career NBA game would turn out. As far as the next few games for the Lakers,...

Dolphins fans savagely cheer as Jay Cutler leaves game with injury

The Sports Daily Dolphins fans savagely cheer as Jay Cutler leaves game with injury Dolphins fans are known for having a short memory, and they must have forgotten that Jay Cutler helped lead the team to victory over the defending NFC Champions last Sunday. Cutler and the Dolphins returned home for their Week 7 matchup with the Jets, and the team’s quarterback did receive some cheers at one point. Unfortunately for him, it was sarcastic in nature. Cutler suffered what the team referred to as a chest injury after hitting the ground hard in the third quarter of the game....

Jay Cutler lofted a 50-50 jump ball to the end zone in the game, which he’s been known to do over the years. It appeared there’d be no way the ball would be caught, yet somehow Stills juggled the ball and came down with it.
