Football News

Sports fans, hello and welcome.

Monday’s are difficult, let’s not try and sugarcoat that age-old fact. Here at GiveMeSport though we believe they can be helped by a little serving of something sweet. It doesn’t come any sweeter than football news.

In a bid to rid yourself of the beginning-of-the-week blues why not watch the video above for the latest gossip and information. Alternatively you can read on below.

Manning benched after breaking record

Peyton Manning may have set a new NFL career passing yards record on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs, but it wasn’t enough to stop him getting benched.

In a fairly surprising turn of events, Manning overtook Brett Favre to become the league’s all-time passing yardage leader but was removed from duty in favour of Brock Osweiler.

Osweiler then led two fourth-quarter touchdowns, ensuring things could get very interesting from here on in.

Hardy incident

Moving on, Greg Hardy was supposedly involved in a sideline confrontation with Dallas Cowboys teammate Demarcus Lawrence yesterday, with the pair going ‘nose to nose’.

The Cowboys crumbled late on to record a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with Hardy’s incident being somewhat overshadowed.

Reports say the pair had to be separated, but by the end of the game they were seen walking off the pitch together.

Lakers save face

In the NBA, the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Detroit Pistons to avoid breaking a record of their own - the worst start to a season they’ve ever had.

Kobe Bryant led the Lakers to a 97-85 victory over the Pistons to help record only the second win Los Angeles have had this year. Not inspiring stuff, but it’s better than another loss.

Rose's double vision

Lastly, Derrick Rose may have been featuring regularly for the Chicago Bulls this year, but he might well suffer double vision for as long as three months.

That’s according to Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg, who offered an update on Rose’s situation to the media. The player himself has spoken previously about waiting for the issue to clear itself up - it appears he’ll be doing that for longer than most expected.
