With that being the case, it should come as no surprise that Super Bowl Sunday always has been (and always will be) a day where ordinary players become National Football League legends, and a day where teams are able to prove they deserve to be mentioned among the best squads in NFL history. On the flip side, Super Bowl Sunday also presents players and teams with an opportunity to forever live in sports infamy. For every player and team that surprisingly turn in a big-time performance in the big game, there are those who crumble under the pressure of playing for a world championship.

Dylan Bundy took a five-hitter into the eighth inning, Manny Machado homered and the surging Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 2-0 in Major League Baseball on Friday night. Bundy (3-1) struck out three, walked one and allowed six hits in seven-plus innings. The 2011 first-round draft pick lowered his ERA to 1.37 and extended his run of consecutive scoreless innings to 13.

Trevor Story has been tinkering with his swing to break out of a slump. Story hit his first career grand slam and Charlie Blackmon lined an inside-the-park homer as part of a six-run fourth inning, helping the Colorado Rockies beat Johnny Cueto and the San Francisco Giants 6-5 on a rainy Friday night. It's the first time an NL team has hit a grand slam and an inside-the-parker in the same inning since the 1950 New York Giants, according to STATS.

The San Francisco Giants slow start has been compounded since arriving in Denver early on Thursday. No, the Giants did not have a game that day, but they still managed to lose when Madison Bumgarner was injured in a dirt bike accident. The San Francisco ace will be forced to miss at least six weeks, and perhaps longer, with a separated left shoulder and bruised ribs. In fact, the Rockies were determined to continue inflicting damage, defeating San Francisco 6-5.

Eli Manning finally responded to accusations that he knowingly was involved in a “conspiracy to defraud collectors by pawning off phony game-worn gear as the real deal”. Manning is as angry as he’s ever been in his public life. “It is one thing to write about my football or my play but when you are attacking my integrity, it definitely makes me angry,” Manning said.

Eli Manning?have fired back, filing a motion stating that "relevant evidence" was intentionally omitted to create the impression that the quarterback was complicit in a game-used memorabilia scheme. The claim was part of a brief filed Wednesday in Bergen County (New Jersey) that alleged Manning's emails were mischaracterized for the purpose of disparaging him and the Giants, according to court documents obtained by ESPN. In an email obtained through discovery by the memorabilia dealer who is suing Manning and the Giants for fraud, the quarterback asked equipment manager Joe Skiba to find two helmets that "can pass as game used." After the release of that email, the plaintiff's attorney made comments to reporters suggesting it proved Manning's complicity.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv PHOENIX - It's looking more and more every day like the embattled Ereck Flowers will keep his job as the Giants' left tackle. And if he does, it sounds like he's got Ben McAdoo's support. "I think one of the best games Ereck played all year was the playoff game, the last game of the season," McAdoo said on Tuesday at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel, site of the NFL Owners Meetings. "He's working hard on his technique. I'm pretty confident that he's working pretty hard right now at being a better player, putting a lot of time and energy in to it. You get to see his face a lot. He's in and out of the building a lot. I know he loves the game and I have confidence in Ereck." McAdoo's

The 2017 NFL regular-season schedule was released Thursday, including the opening week slate. Of the 16 games set for Week 1, a few feature two playoff teams from last year and potential Super Bowl LII contenders. The first game of the entire season is

The Philadelphia Eagles are looking to improve from last year and what better way than to start the build-up than facing a division rival? Washington didn’t do much in free agency as opposed to the Eagles who brought in a dangerous new receiving corps in the form of Alshon Jeffrey and Torrey Smith. Depending on what route the Eagles take in the draft, Philadelphia should be able to handle the Redskins and pick up a win.

The New York Giants' Eli Manning angrily responded to allegations of merchandise fraud but Mike Florio says the quarterback will need more than that to clear his name.
