This Week in Sports – September 25 – October 1
26 Sep 2011
Sept 26 – The Redskins are in first place? When has that happened in the past few years? All joking aside, they have had a convincing win against the New York Giants in week one and looking to keep their momentum going into Dallas’ first home game of the season. With Tony Romo banged up Dallas will have a much more difficult time dealing with the Redskin’s solid defense, but it should be a close game nonetheless. Players to watch: Tony Romo (if he plays) and Tim Hightower
Sept 27 – With the Red Sox in complete free fall over the past month, the Rays are looking more and more likely to pick up the Wild Card and head into the playoffs. The only team standing in their way looks to be the New York Yankees, who will probably rest a few players before the postseason begins, thus giving the Rays an ever better chance of making it in. This is an important series so make sure to tune in.
Oct 1 – Both teams are in the top 15 in the overall rankings, and this game should really show what each team is made of. Clemson comes off of an impressive win over Florida State and looks to keep their national championship hopes alive, while Frank Beamer and Virginia Tech face their first ranked opponent of the season. Players to watch: David Wilson and Tajh Boyd
Sept 29 – The Justin Timberlake’s Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. With the FedEx Cup Playoffs now completed, there are still a few more tournaments before the PGA Tour season ends. Jonathan Byrd looks to defend his title while well-known players such as David Duval, Trevor Immelman, and Nick Watney look to pad their wallets a bit more at this week’s tournament sponsored by Justin Timberlake.
