The Broncos made the play stand up by recovering an onside kick and running out the clock. Were it not for the blocked extra point returned down the Saints sideline for a two-point conversion by the Broncos' Will Parks, those two lost fumbles that led to 10 Denver points would have seemed far less costly as New Orleans failed for the third year in a row to win a game they began with a 4-4 record.
The last time both the men's and women's winners retained their titles at the New York City Marathon was in 1995 when German Silva and Tegla Loroupe successfully defended their crowns.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's test against Canada in Dublin, the Kiwi-born coach insisted he had rejected a "break clause" in his newly-signed contract extension that sees him stay in Ireland until the 2019 World Cup. Craig Gilroy and Keith Earls , who has served his two-week ban after being sent-off for a risky tackle against Glasgow in a Champions Cup game, occupy the wing berths.
Mary's on Friday in a battle of Mountaineers. West Virginia would be well-advised to play a tight, clean game offensively. Nope. Game over. West Virginia's chase for its first Big 12 championship is still alive. We had to stop him and make others make plays. "Traditionally we've done fine", Holgorsen said of West Virginia's defense against the run. If West Virginia beats Texas and Oklahoma while Oklahoma beats Baylor and Oklahoma State wins its next two against Texas Tech ...
This is not an elite football team Jim Grobe gets to babysit in 2016. Baylor quarterback Seth Russell suffered a leg injury during the third quarter of the Bears' Big 12 clash with the Oklahoma Sooners. Freshman quarterback Zach Smith entered the game as his replacement. After winning their first six games, the Bears (6-3, 3-3) have dropped three consecutive games.
Blame the drop in production on a deflated batting average and a lack of secondary skills, but give Kendrick this much: It was the first year he'd been deployed in an unusual role - one that saw him primarily stand out in left field, but also receive reps at first, second and third base.
The Canucks (5-8-1) are coming off a 5-3 victory Tuesday at the New York Rangers, which snapped their nine-game winless streak (0-8-1). Marian Hossa notched his seventh goal of the season in the second period for Chicago, but Alex Pietrangelo tied it up for St.
Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is adamant there is much more to come from him in the remainder of the season. "It [the injury] is not gone". Remember, this is a seasoned European traveller who has played for eight different clubs in six countries. Mourinho's anger was clear after the game when he confirmed Smalling and Shaw had ruled themselves out and proceeded to talk at length about having to trust his players, noting how many sports people went through the pain ...
Joint-owner Lloyd Williams is a ubiquitous presence upon the winner's podium and was claiming a fifth victory in the so-called "race that stops a nation". But she might as well have sent it along the line to her brother-in-law McEvoy, who drove Almandin to victory from Irish visitor Heartbreak City in an epic struggle down the Flemington straight.
The emails were found on the computer of Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

The Mets are open to giving Cespedes a four-year deal, preferably around $25 million a season, MetsBlog.com's Matthew Cerrone wrote October 28. Assuming he does not return to the Mets for financial reasons, here are three destinations Cespedes could find appealing.
Leverkusen cleverly kept Tottenham at arm's length thereafter although they did enjoy a letoff when Dier's free kick rocked the crossbar and the ball was scrambled clear. We have to win against Monaco and CSKA. Kevin Kampl's second-half goal punished Tottenham for a shoddy display bereft of spark and took the north London's club losing streak at the national stadium to six matches stretching back to a League Cup victory over Chelsea in 2008.
Kante has moved to Chelsea since Leicester won the Premier League title in May. Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to be the favourite for the prize after winning the Champions League. Mahrez, who is from Algeria, is the only nominee from an African national team. Now separated from the Ballon d'Or, the Federation Internationale de Football Association award winners will be chosen through a combined voting process based on the choices of national team captains and coaches, an ...
With Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante in form, there is an air of swagger about the Blues for the first time in 18 months. Guus Hiddink (W8-D1-L1) embarked on his first caretaker spell in February 2009 with eight victories and just one defeat after succeeding Luiz Felipe Scolari, who had imploded after making an impressive start of his own to life at Stamford Bridge (W7-D2-L1).
Williams now lie fifth in the constructor's championship with two races left and have not won a grand prix since 2012. Stroll, who comfortably won the prestigious FIA European Formula Three series in 2016, has been preparing for his F1 debut by driving a two-year-old Williams vehicle in private test sessions in recent months.
Arsene Wenger believes Mesut Ozil should be hailed as a great player because he always finds the "optimal solution" during games. And what a goal it was. "Now we play Paris (St Germain) at home and we have a chance to finish top". Wenger's side haven't lost a game in all competitions since a 4-3 loss to Liverpool in their opening game of the season.
Whether the Indians or Cubs will be popping the champagne. "That's really the only thing I'll be thinking about". Schwarber missed almost the entire season with two torn ligaments in his knee, but he proved why he's one of the best young hitters in the game during his brief stint back last week.
New Zealand's batsmen would have backed themselves to chase India's target and in the process claim the series.

Technically, yes, that was the first time there was a World Series game at Wrigley Field - on October 30. "There's one guy in particular I want to sing my [butt] off for". We don't now have any upcoming shows for Eddie Vedder. Eddie then kicked off the song, to which the crowd sang along to every word. Vedder is a native of Evanston and lead singer for the band Pearl Jam.
