Daily Recap – November 1, 2020

News

The most anticipated story of the day was Tua Tagovailoa’s first career start in Miami. The day got off to an inauspicious start – Tagovailoa was hit and fumbled on the first snap, but things picked up after that. Buoyed by two non-offensive touchdowns, Tagovailoa played most of the game with a double-digit lead, as Miami cruised to a 28-17 win. Tagovailoa’s final line was 12-for-22 for just 93 yards, with his first career touchdown pass. Every quarterback’s numbers get dinged by drops, by 4 drops by Miami receivers on 10 incompletions definitely distorted Tagovailoa’s final numbers. Afterwards, Tagovailoa felt he could have played better, and sounded relieved that he took a hit right away and came away unscathed. Links to some game columns here, here, here, and here.

Speaking of Tua, here are a couple of examples of efforts by squatters to register trademarks using Tagovailoa’s name.

If you don’t live in a battleground state, you may have been fortunate enough to see this commercial instead of a political ad today. Nice to see Procter and Gamble flexing for Alabama Football.

Josh Jacobs (128 yds), Derrick Henry (112 yds), and Damien Harris (102 yds) all went over 100 yards rushing on the day. Harris’ total was a career high, and he also scored his first touchdown.

Kareem Jackson set the defensive tone in the second half for Denver, recording 12 tackles and some big hits (one of which he’ll likely be fined for), as Denver erased a 24-3 deficit to win 31-30. Jackson spoke to the media after the game:

Isaiah Buggs was pressed into heavy rotation due to an injury, and responded with a career-best 5 tackles, including a 4th down stop inside the red zone.

Trevon Diggs recorded his first two career interceptions in a Dallas loss.

Ronnie Harrison had another big week defensively, making a team-high 10 tackles for Cleveland.

Anton McKee set another new personal best / Icelandic national record in the 200m breaststroke at the International Swimming League meet today. McKee posted a time of 2:01.65, which shaved 0.08 seconds off the PB / national record that he swam a week earlier.

Arinn Young made her professional debut in Germany this weekend, where the Rhine River Rhinos opened its season with a 74-60 loss to Baskets 96 Rahden. Young scored 9 points for the Rhinos.

Krystal Rivers made her return to the volleyball court today in grand fashion, recording 26 kills and earning MVP honors, as Stuttgart defeated MΓΌnster in 4 sets. Stuttgart had three games postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests.

Dicky Pride continued his streak of Top 25 finishes on the Champions Tour with a T-15 finish at the TimberTech Championship. Pride is 6-for-6 in Top 25 finishes (including 4 Top 15 finishes) this year, despite having no status on the tour at the beginning of the year. Pride has earned a spot in next week’s tour championship.
