Daily Roundup: Jan. 7


Jan 7, 2019

Here’s a recap of the latest sports news:

  • Philadelphia was one of the last teams to lock up its spot in the NFL playoffs. After beating the Bears on a missed field goal as time expired, the NFC’s No. 6-seed knows it has nothing to lose, writes Monday Morning Quarterback’s Kalyn Kahler.
  • The reasons for the depressed ticket market for Monday’s national championship game come down largely to distance and déjà vu, writes USA Today’s A.J. Perez.
  • Ever in unison, Chargers players danced and sang as they dodged discarded tape, equipment bags, and one another in the cramped locker room of M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday after their 23-17 wildcard victory over the Baltimore Ravens. A playoff win was something new for most of them, writes Los Angeles Times’ Helene Elliott.
  • Bears kicker Cody Parkey, who hit the uprights an astounding five times during the regular season, did it again when he missed a potential game-winning 43-yard field goal with 10 seconds left at a stunned Soldier Fiel, writes the Chicago Sun Times’ Patrick Finley.
