The Draft

POWERED BY

Two more MLB division series kick off today, and teams with a 1-0 lead in a best-of-five series have gone on to win 72% of the time. In our latest Friday Conversation, we spoke with a potential HoF quarterback who’s about to kick off Week 5.

Making Headlines

NHL: The Florida Panthers signed star center and captain Aleksander Barkov to an eight-year, $80 million extension, per Elliotte Friedman. The contract will be tied for the 10th-richest in the league by total value.

NFL: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that quarterback Russell Wilson “badly sprained” his finger during Seattle’s 26-17 loss to the Rams. No timetable has been set for his return.
