Ravens’ Lamar Jackson back to running for touchdowns

Published

on

When the Baltimore Ravens needed to answer, quarterback Lamar Jackson did so with his legs.

After the Philadelphia Eagles reached the end zone for the first time Sunday, Jackson delivered a 37-yard touchdown run to give the Ravens a 24-6 lead in the third quarter.

Jackson burst up the middle of the Eagles’ defense without being touched because three offensive linemen (Bradley Bozeman, Tyre Phillips and Orlando Brown Jr.) walled off defenders to his right and left tackle Ronnie Stanley pulled for the key block to his right.

It was Jackson’s second rushing touchdown of at least 35 yards this season (he had a 50-yarder in Washington). The last quarterback to have multiple rushing touchdowns of at least 35 yards in a season was Vince Young in 2006.

Jackson’s touchdown run came a week after he recorded his fewest carries (two) and rushing yards (3) in a game.

Driving force: DeChambeau claims 400-yd. carry

Published

on

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — While most of the top players are preparing for the Masters by playing in this weekend’s Zozo Championship, Bryson DeChambeau is at home in his Dallas laboratory concocting ways to tackle Augusta National Golf Club.

On Friday, he unveiled a little bit of his madness, disclosing via Instagram story that he had achieved 401.3 yards of carry with the driver he is working with and “not even the 48-inch driver.”

The device he showed to monitor his progress also showed a ball speed of 211 mph and a hang time of 8.2 seconds.

Count to eight and consider how long his golf ball stayed in the air.

DeChambeau, who won the U.S. Open last month by six shots, said two weeks ago at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open that he planned to spend the month prior to the Masters hitting “2,000 drivers” and experimenting with a 48-inch shaft, the longest allowed by the Rules of Golf.

Most players use a driver length of 44 to 45 inches.

There are a lot of variables, including elevation changes and wind. And a driver might not be the proper play off every tee for DeChambeau, while some shots require a draw or a fade.

Fury plans Dec. 5 fight in London; Wilder unlikely

Published

on

LONDON — WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury said Saturday that he plans to fight in London on Dec. 5, but his opponent is unknown.

“I’d just like to announce I’m definitely fighting December the 5th in London. Opponent to be announced very, very soon,” Fury said in a video message posted on his social media accounts. “Just working on some opponents. Let you all know who it’s going to be shortly.” Fury and his co-promoter Frank Warren recently expressed doubt that a third fight with American Deontay Wilder would happen in 2020.

Fury claimed the WBC belt off Wilder with a seventh-round stoppage in February, after their draw in 2018.

A fight between undefeated Michael Conlan and former WBO junior featherweight champion Isaac Dogboe has been agreed upon for Dec. 5 at Royal Albert Hall in London. That fight is expected to be part of the Fury card, sources told ESPN’s Steve Kim.

The 32-year-old Fury announced in June that he had agreed to a two-fight deal with Anthony Joshua. The sides said that the first bout could take place sometime in 2021 in what would be an all-British showdown between the current holders of the heavyweight belts.

Joshua is scheduled to fight Kubrat Pulev on Dec. 12 at the O2 Arena in London. The fight was postponed from June because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
