The Washington Nationals won MLB's last game of the year--and the World Championship--just as this week's GridCard marked the halfway point of the football season. NCAAF games include key conference matchups: SMU @ Memphis in the American, TCU @ Oklahoma State in the Big 12, Oregon @ USC in the PAC 12, and Georgia @ Florida in the SEC.
The NFL provides some Sunday morning action as the Texans take on the Jags in London. Other NFL games on the slate include Colts @ Steelers and Cowboys @ Giants. The marquee showdown, however, has to be the Patriots @ Ravens in Baltimore on Sunday night where Tom Brady goes head-to-head against Lamar Jackson.
Just as MLB closes the scorebook on the 2019 season, NCAA basketball arrives with a primetime clash between the top two teams in most preseason polls--MSU and Kentucky--at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night. The NBA 's ESPN Game-of-the-Week, Warriors @ Rockets, lost some of its luster when the Warriors dropped three of their first four games and lost Steph Curry to a broken hand.
