Cousins threw for four touchdowns and a season-high 365 yards as the Redskins beat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-24 on Saturday night to win their first division title in three years, after finishing last in 2014. It's become a rallying cry for the Redskins and their fans, who continued the chant for several minutes after the game.
While the Redskins head to the playoffs, the Eagles and Kelly face a challenging offseason. Meanwhile, Gruden made a gutsy call in August to bench Griffin and give the starting job to Cousins.
Cousins was outstanding down the stretch, with 16 TD passes and only two interceptions in the last seven games. Cousins took a knee with no timeouts and six seconds left at the Eagles 6 with a 16-10 lead. But Murray then dropped a pitch, Hall picked it up and ran it back for a 30-17 lead late in the third quarter. The allegations surfaced in an Al Jazeera undercover probe into doping in global sports and was shared in advance with the Huffington Post.
Liam Collins, a British hurdler, went undercover and spoke with Charlie Sly, a Texas-based pharmacist who worked at the Guyer Institute, the Indiana-based anti-aging clinic in 2011. Sly allegedly names Manning and other high profile athletes as having received HGH from the clinic. However, Sly backtracks in a subsequent statement to Al Jazeera, saying Collins secretly recorded his conversations without his knowledge or consent. The NFL and players union added human growth hormone testing to the collective bargaining agreement signed in 2011 but the sides didn't agree to testing terms until 2014. Smith, who played 25 games for Philadelphia last season and averaged 12 points and six assists, got the start and was 6 for 15 from the floor. Isaiah Canaan scored 22 points and reserve Nik Stauskas had 17 for the 76ers, who went 12 for 27 from 3-point range.
Bledsoe got hurt with 7:40 left in the second quarter and had to be helped to the locker room. Kawhi Leonard had 20 points and San Antonio rebounded from a rare loss to beat Denver 101-86 on Saturday night to remain perfect at home.
Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili both sat out after playing big minutes in Firday night's tough loss in Houston, but eight players scored at least eight points against Denver.
Denver, which was without starters Danilo Gallinari and Emmanuel Mudiay, trailed by double digits throughout the second half. Age before beauty: Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has made it a point the past few seasons to rest veterans Duncan, Ginobili and Parker, but rarely has sat 33-year-old Diaw.
The beleaguered manager, 64, looked like a condemned man throughout United's lackluster 2-0 loss to Stoke City at Britannia Stadium and during the media inquest that followed. When grilled about the firestorm of speculation surrounding his likely firing and the possible appointment of Jose Mourinho, Van Gaal intimated that he may be about to walk away from a job that has undergone a dramatic downturn in fortunes in the past month.
United has slipped to sixth in the Premier League after three consecutive defeats and was knocked out of the Champions League after a 3-2 loss at Wolfsburg earlier this month.
The result left Chelsea in 15th place and came at the cost of a fifth booking of the season for Costa, who will now miss the meeting with United while he serves a one-match ban.
Hiddink did, however, express sympathy for the difficulties facing Memphis Depay, the young Holland forward signed by United for $4 million from PSV Eindhoven during the offseason. But instead they slumped to their worst league defeat since March 2014 courtesy of a jaw-dropping Cuco Martina strike, a second-half Shane Long brace and a Jose Fonte header at St Mary's. But it was far brighter against Leicester and substitute Christian Benteke made the difference in the second half, slotting home Roberto Firmino's cross to finally make Liverpool's dominance count.
Klopp said that he was happy with Benteke's form, despite the Belgian striker starting on the bench against both Watford and Leicester. He came on for Divock Origi, who pulled his hamstring in the first half, and never looked back. Leicester has risen to the Premier League summit this season through a blend of commitment and teamwork and both were on display in a clash that saw the visitor scrapping for its life from the start. Origi, Emre Can, Philippe Countinho and Jordan Henderson all shone for the home side, but central defensive pairing Morgan and Robert Huth were outstanding for the visitors, who remained in first place thanks to second-place Arsenal's 4-0 drubbing at Southampton. Leicester duo Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez have been two of the brightest players in the Premier League this season, but they were given very few chances to shine against a Liverpool squad intent on using attack as its first form of defense. Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri has been ultra-realistic about his side's incredible run of form and he remained philosophical after what was only its second defeat of the campaign.
Ranieri visited Borussia Dortmund's training ground last season when Klopp was still in charge, and the two managers clearly share a similar soccer philosophy.
Leicester has benefited from no European distractions this season, and a relatively light injury list, although Klopp says the Foxes are deservedly leading the title race. Jamie Vardy (15) and Riyad Mahrez (13) have combined to score 75.7 percent of Leicester's league goals this season, with Algerian Mahrez twice on target in last week's 3-2 victory against Liverpool's Merseyside neighbor Everton. Klopp has worries of his own with his side struggling for form and still smarting from last weekend's 3-0 defeat at Watford - a result that left it ninth. He will be without defender Martin Skrtel (hamstring) and James Milner (calf) for the clash with Leicester, although goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and defender Dejan Lovren are back. Following its match against Leicester, Liverpool is away at Sunderland and West Ham United. The 30-year-old Murphy elevated his status with home runs in a major-league record six consecutive games during the playoffs last fall for the New York Mets and was named National League Championship Series Most Valuable Player. Yoenis Cespedes and the New York Mets cut off contract talks and the Cuban outfielder is moving on to a fifth team in just over two years. A woman who said she had an affair with New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has pleaded guilty to extortion, perjury and criminal impersonation. Pakistan cricket on Thursday braced for another storm when former Twenty20 captain Mohammad Hafeez and current one-day skipper Azhar Ali refused to train with tainted paceman Mohammad Amir.


Ali also backed Hafeez in boycotting the camp staged to train the team for next month's tour of New Zealand, where it will play three one-day internationals and as many Twenty20 internationals.
British media reports claim van Gaal is on the brink of the sack after a run of six games without victory and he stormed out of his weekly news conference on Wednesday after criticizing the speculation about his job. Before cutting short his media conference, van Gaal said the rumors about his future had affected his family and Rooney sympathized with the Dutchman.
As pressure mounts on United after an extended run of poor results, winger Ashley Young insists players are in high spirits and are determined to put things right with a win at Stoke City on Boxing day. The Red Devils have exited the Champions League and dropped to fifth in the Premier League after a run of six winless games. Criticism for United's possession-based playing style has intensified over the past month, but Young is the latest player, after Phil Jones and David de Gea, who has spoken positively about the dressing-room atmosphere. The 13-time Premier League champion still has a long injury list that includes defenders Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia and Marcos Rojo.
South African Clark, one of the leading critics of the rule change along with former major winners Adam Scott, Keegan Bradley and Webb Simpson, has been using the anchored technique for 18 years and the same putter for more than a decade. However, Simpson, 30, a four-time winner on the PGA Tour, says he is prepared for the rule change. Most players believe users of the belly technique will find the adjustment easier to make next year than the 'broomhandle' brigade, and a few could end up following the example of Matt Kuchar. American Kuchar uses a putting stroke which is not outlawed by the rulemakers' proposal since his putter rests against his left arm and not against his chest, stomach or chin. Australian cricket's Big Bash League has taken another swipe into the south China market and snared outstanding women's all-rounder Mariko Hill. Living in the capital of Victoria will not be an entirely new experience for the Hong Kong University student who is studying for a Bachelor of Sports Science degree as she spent four months in the southern mainland state three years ago playing for club side Plenty Valley; thanks to connections between that state and the HKCA.
Hill will also be "catching up" with some of the game's leading women players at the Renegades, who include South African all-round star Dane van Niekerk, longtime New Zealand wicketkeeper Rachel Priest and her captain and Australia veteran Sarah Elliott.
Australia captain and batting supremo Steve Smith on Thursday admitted it has been "a hell of a ride" from his Test debut as a leg-spinner to be named ICC Cricketer of the Year.
Following his Test debut, Smith went back to state cricket for New South Wales and focused on improving his batting, "to try and find a game that can be adaptable and be successful at this level". Smith is the fourth Australian to win the ICC's Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy in its 12th edition, following in the footsteps of Ricky Ponting (2006 and 2007), Mitchell Johnson (2009 and 2014) and Michael Clarke (2013). Van Gaal has reportedly been given two games to save his job after United's miserable six-match winless run cost it a place in the Champions League and saw it drop out of the Premier League's top four.
Rumors have been rife this week that the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss is about to be fired and replaced by Jose Mourinho, who was dismissed by Chelsea last Thursday. Quizzed about the speculation by reporters at his weekly media conference ahead of Saturday's trip to Stoke, van Gaal quickly became irritated and it was less than five minutes before he decided he had had enough. Refusing to take any more questions, the Dutchman walked out, saying as he passed a table of mince pies and wine that had been laid on for the media: "I wish you a merry Christmas and also maybe a happy new year when I see you. Van Gaal, who has overseen just three victories in United's past 13 games in all competitions, only answered three questions from the broadcast media and then refused to take any questions from the written press. Van Gaal, under intense pressure since last Saturday's 2-1 Premier League defeat at home to Norwich, said he has received calls of support from former United manager Alex Ferguson, as well as former chief executive David Gill and current executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. Van Gaal gave a speech to his squad at the players' Christmas lunch on Monday, urging them to show unity as they attempt to improve their form while enduring criticism from former United players, the club's fans and the media. Ian Baker, who was covering the game for AFP, asked Pearson to elaborate after he told his post-match news conference that his players had had to deal with "criticism and negativity".
Arsene Wenger launched a scathing attack on Arsenal's "boring" critics and threatened to walk out of a media conference when questioned about Jose Mourinho.
Wenger's side suffered an embarrassing 3-2 defeat at home to Olympiakos in the Champions League in October with ex-Manchester United captain Roy Keane labeling the team as weak and soft.
New Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink has asked his underperforming players to "look into the mirror" and claims their future at the club is at risk if they don't up their game. Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard bore the brunt of supporter criticism, but Hiddink's message to them was a clear one. Leicester will beat Ranieri's preseason points target of 40 with a win at Anfield and if it does that he will sit down with his players to re-evaluate their ambitions.
That is a bold statement from a player on pace to shatter his own one-season NBA record for 3-pointers, who had the Warriors off to a record 24-0 start and looks set to smash the record for the best season in NBA history - the 72-10 mark by Chicago in 1995-96. Curry leads the NBA with 31.8 points per game and his Warriors will face four-time NBA MVP James and Cleveland on Friday for the first time since vanquishing them in the NBA Finals last June. Curry said the athlete he most admires is Jordan Spieth, this year's Masters and US Open golf champion. Curry played golf last summer with President Barack Obama, his father and NBA legend Ray Allen, and said he was more nervous than when he was playing for the NBA crown. Nowitzki is sure to get there someday, too, when-ever he ends a career that saw him redefine the power forward position, and perhaps create the notion of a stretch-4 that teams now crave. A seven-shot lead only 20 minutes earlier was down to four shots, and looked certain to shrink even more when he missed the 18th green behind the bunker. The winning shot for Spieth turned out to be a 3-wood on the par-5 18th at Chambers Bay - and he felt he could not miss. The ball bounded to the back of the green and rolled back to about 10 feet for a two-putt birdie.
Only after he made that putt did Spieth look at a leader-board on the back nine and see he was tied for the lead. That was 20-year-old Golf Channel's previous high-water mark in terms of television ratings and the last splash from Woods, who won five of 16 tournaments he played in 2013 and was named PGA Tour Player of the Year for a remarkable 11th time. Since then, back injuries have derailed the nearly 40-year-old Woods, but the rise of Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Rickie Fowler to join 26-year-old Rory McIlroy in golf's elite has captured the attention of golf viewers.
The next era for golf is likely to contrast with the reign of Woods, who dominated the game and carried fan interest on his shoulders, and McCarley senses a new age of rivalries is looming.


Spieth got the 2015 major championship season off to a flying start with his decisive win at the Masters, and followed that with victory at the US Open two months later. The Texan, 22, made a run at winning a third in a row, finishing one shot out of a playoff at the British Open and then was runner-up to 28-year-old Day of Australia at the PGA Championship. The second quarter showed a gain of 3 percent over the year before and grew to an increase of 8 percent in the next quarter before booming to a 13 percent year-ago gain in the last period. McCarley noted a competitive parallel in the women's game with the rise of 18-year-old Lydia Ko of New Zealand as world No 1 and a natural rivalry with American Lexi Thompson, the 20-year-old world No 4. World No 10 Patrick Reed has lauded Europe's "real sense of camaraderie" and "great vibe" after completing his first full year as a member of the tour.
But the Internet never forgets, and the snapshot has come back to haunt the 74-year-old soccer honcho, who was one of 16 people indicted by US authorities this month in the spiralling corruption scandal shaking FIFA. That love birds' outing on his 16-meter yacht returned from the past when a Brazilian Senate commission carrying out its own investigation into dirty dealings in the national sport announced it was requesting access to the bank and telephone records of Del Nero's ex-girlfriends. Lawmakers suspect the yacht, My Way - which Del Nero was fond of using for champagne-soaked outings with girlfriends a third of his age - was purchased with bribes from sports marketing company Klefer, which is now in the cross-hairs of US and Brazilian investigations.
Marin, who was extradited to New York and released on $15 million bail, is currently under house arrest at his apartment in the swank Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. Del Nero for his part was forced to resign from FIFA's executive committee and take leave from the CBF. The master of turning power to wealth in the soccer world is Ricardo Teixeira, the CBF's president for 23 years and another of the 16 Latin American soccer officials indicted this month. The past three presidents of South American confederation CONMEBOL have all been arrested in the probe, along with the presidents or former presidents of the Venezuelan, Bolivian, Peruvian and Ecuadorian federations. Kelly took control of personnel decisions last year and overhauled a team that went 10-6 in each of his first two seasons. Rookie Devin Booker scored a career-high 19 points, and Jon Leuer had 14 points and nine rebounds.
He got a steal and fed Stauskas for a dunk, and knocked down an 18-footer to help keep the Sixers in front.
Parker had a 19-foot jumper and a layup off a steal that gave San Antonio a 43-31 lead with 4:21 remaining.
He had a steal near midcourt and sprinted in for a layup that was part of a 22-9 run that began midway through the second. Will Barton added 16 points and Gary Harris was the only starter in double figures with 10. My body feels invincible - the best it's ever been - but I'm challenged by a number of small and local injuries," Kompany said. He didn't warm up and he had to start immediately, but we knew if we concentrated that we would get our chances. They have two obvious strong strikers with perfect runs, no injuries, can go all week and they have a long week to train and recover.
That is to be determined, but Cespedes did not find any path to a return to the Mets, who signed complementary outfielder Alejandro De Aza this week and CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports Steven Pearce is on New York's radar.
She was charged with harassing Cashman in 2012 and with extorting $6,000 by threatening to damage his reputation. When pulled in the fourth quarter, Morris expressed his displeasure and tossed the towel at Hornacek. Then my brother (Toby) started playing cricket and I joined in the local development program and I stuck to that. I held meetings with the players and with my members of staff, I hold a Christmas lunch, I did a speech and I feel the warmth and support of everybody in Carrington, at this training complex," he said.
I never critiqued that, I accept your judgement of how the team played and your assessment, but I don't have to give you all the information I have to make my decisions," Wenger said.
It's a few years ago that I was here in a similar situation and I tried to help out when I was asked to do so. Curry had 16 points and nine assists as the Warriors remained unbeaten at home this season with a 103-85 win. That's how I have confidence out there that I can play at a high level every night," said Curry, 27.
Dallas started 20 for 25, and Barea made his first eight shots and did not miss until lobbing an airball with the shot clock running out late in the period.
The more lasting image from the British Open was the 39-year-old American holding his crouch and slowly clenching his fist on the 18th green at St. In a risky move, Spieth hit a flop shot that helped him save par and set the tone for the final round. Asked how many times he barked instructions to his ball, Spieth said: "Less out loud than what was in my head.
Spieth's tee shot on the par-3 15th rolled back off the front, and the slope was much like the elevation at Augusta National - you have to see it to believe it. It was deserved and I think we played the kind of game we should play against these opponents. Morris will miss games against the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday and Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday. You can tell him now, we're still fighting for this title and he's got to go to Middlesbrough and get something.
It's disgraceful for the Brazilian authorities that the FBI had to come and investigate," said Kfouri.
