Long snapper displays perfect aim

This is what you call accuracy ... and a lot of trust.


Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

That looked like the Josh Gordon of 2013. Two receptions, 87 yards, one touchdown.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Saints QB Drew Brees done for the night -- and presumably for the preseason. Finished on high note with 17-yard TD to Willie Snead and went 9-of-12 for 78 yards, 7 points in three drives. Brees had a decent preseason (2 TDs, 1 INT), but his biggest problem was the struggling offensive line play that didn't give him much time in the pocket. Fair to say Brees and his deep group of receivers remain the Saints' best asset by far.

On a night in which it seemed like every Met was turning the clock back, Bartolo Colon reached back to 2002. That year marked the last time Colon had two hits in a game, until Friday night. Colon also matched his longest no-hit bid of the season, taking one 4 1/3 innings.

What has Dana White bought since UFC sale?

UFC president Dana White expresses his excitement for continuing to grow the company after the sale and says he only added a new car with his profits because he needed it.


Wallace Matthews ESPN Staff Writer 

The Gary Sanchez Story continues to re-write itself. The 23-year-old Yankee rookie catcher has three hits in five innings against the Orioles tonight, including his 10th HR of the season, a 2-run shot that made it 12-1 Yankees. Sanchez' 10 HRs in a month -- actually 22 days so far -- is a Yankees rookie record. He is batting .408.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is back in the game. Perhaps Ron Rivera just wanted to give Derek Anderson a series with the first team.

Dana White says Diaz/McGregor trilogy doesn't make sense

UFC president Dana White says that a third fight for Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor doesn't make any sense in regards to the promotion's title and rankings. He also spells out what should be next for McGregor.

Panthers backup quarterback Derek Anderson is in for NFL MVP Cam Newton with 7:02 left in the first half. Newton was supposed to play into the third quarter. Newton was 6-for-14 for 55 yards and two interceptions. He does not appear injured.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

Tom Brady connects with WR Chris Hogan on a 33-yard touchdown pass up the right side into the end zone on a beautifully thrown ball. The 2-point conversion pass from Brady to WR Aaron Dobson was thrown high and fell incomplete.

Darren Rovell ESPN Senior Writer 

Hawaii's football team will fly 46,696 miles to get to their games this season, that's 3,108 miles short of circling the earth twice.

Ben Roethlisberger with the teardrop dime to Antonio Brown for a 57-yard touchdown. Goodness.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

David Ortiz has more career doubles than Hank Aaron. Let that sink in for a moment. Ortiz's 625th double, a ground-ruler in the third inning at Fenway, moves him past Aaron and into 10th place on the all-time list.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

Tom Brady's first offensive series lasted four plays and he had one completion, to WR Aaron Dobson (37 yards). A third-down throw to TE Martellus Bennett in the back of the end zone was just a bit high for Bennett to haul in. The Patriots settled for a FG.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

It's a big night for Bucs kicker Roberto Aguayo -- his first night kicking in front of a Bucs home crowd but not his first time kicking under the lights at Raymond James Stadium. He won a Punt, Pass and Kick contest here at 12 in 2005.

Right now Aaron Rodgers is on the field throwing to Jordy Nelson. Tonight one (Rodgers) won't play much, and the other (Nelson) won't play at all, but a good sign for the Packers' opener 16 days from now.

Dempsey sidelined with irregular heartbeat

Sounders interim head coach Brian Schmetzer talks about Clint Dempsey being sidelined with an irregular heartbeat.


David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is way off on his throws so far, completing 1 of his first 4 attempts. Two were high to Kelvin Benjamin, who is 6-foot-5. Newton was having his best preseason ever prior to this, completing 13 of 18 passes with no interceptions in the first two games.
