Tiger Wins Tour Championship, Two Upsets Highlight NFL

Jonathan Grant | September 24th, 2018

That’s it. It’s over. Anyone looking to become the comeback player of the sports year, or maybe even decade for that matter, can just give up now. Tiger Woods has taken that mantle after he won his first time in over five years on Sunday at the Tour Championship to close out to the PGA Tour season with a bang. Woods had been impressive all year long, given his relative lack of anything resembling good play for oh so long. And he was just as impressive throughout the week, never failing to have less than a share for the lead at the end of any round. He came into Sunday ahead by three strokes. Wearing red, like the Tiger of old, he never gave the chasers a chance to catch him. He had never lost a PGA Tour event with a lead that large after 54 holes, and he extended that. But the biggest thing to take from this is that it is one of the greatest feats ever. This was a broken man. In body and spirit. He could barely walk not too long ago, and he had one of the most public falling outs with family we had ever seen. Yet, he has fought through all of that adversity to win again on the tour. Not many thought it would ever happen again, and no matter what the detractors may say, this was one of the biggest and best day’s in golf history.

Sporting News

The NFL is one of the most competitive leagues in the world. No matter how good, or bad, a team is, there is always a chance that they could lose. It is professional football, after all. But there were two very notable upsets on Sunday in the NFL. The first of which was the Buffalo Bills defeating the Minnesota Vikings in convincing fashion by a score of 27-6. The Bills, now 1-2, defeated the previously unbeaten Vikings thanks in large part to a 17-point first quarter outburst. Young QB Josh Allen was very solid, and the defense was very good all day. Vegas had the Vikings, a big-time Super Bowl contender as nearly 17 point favorites.

The other upset of the day came in the night cap as Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the Patriots lost to Matt Patricia’s Detroit Lions on Sunday Night Football. The former Pats assistant was doubted all week long over his ability to defeat his former master, but the apprentice put on a masterpiece in a dominant 26-10 victory. The Lions won all four quarters, only tying 7-7 in the third, and held Brady to just 133 yards in the air. If you can do that, you’re almost guaranteed to win, and that’s what the Lions got. Both teams are now 1-2. And judging off their attitudes now, who do you think is most likely to make the playoffs?
