GiveMeSport brings you the top headlines from another action packed day in US sport.


Third string quarterback Colt McCoy led the Washington Redskins to a shock primetime win over the Dallas Cowboys last night.

Washington upset the Cowboys 20-17 thanks to an overtime field goal and with Dallas QB Tony Romo re-injuring his back late on it was a bad night all round for the famous franchise.

Romo is set to go for an MRI scan today but Dallas are hopeful the injury is not too serious. Colt McCoy meanwhile earned the praise of coach Jay Gruden but remains behind Robert Griffin III in the Redskins pecking order.


The NBA returns tonight with reigning champions the San Antonio Spurs getting the new season underway against the Dallas Mavericks.
