This is what we show up to spring training for.

“It’s what we work all offseason for. Ups and downs, all around the country,” Sale said. “This is what we live for.”

With that said, James’ 17 points still led the Cavs and he shot 8-for-13 from the floor with 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and a block.

“He hasn’t played in I don’t know how long,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “Of course his rhythm is going to be off. His passing, timing. That’s just part of the game. But I’m not worried about Bron. He’ll be OK. Tonight is his first night playing in a long time. He’ll get his rhythm. I’m not too worried about that.”

Cleveland had little continuity as a group, however, and the Cavaliers could often be seen pointing and gesturing to one another in the middle of plays to direct people where to go.

“I had to do something,” said Judge, who is 0 for 10 with eight strikeouts in the series. “I wasn’t obviously making any contact at the plate, so you’ve got to make an impact on the game somehow and luckily I was able to do it on defense.”

On the night they raised their Western Conference championship banner, the Predators blew a 3-0 lead as the Flyers scored five straight goals.

But then Forsberg scored his first of the game 50 seconds after the Flyers took a 5-3 lead, and Scott Hartnell jammed in his second goal tying it with 1:17 left on a 5-on-3 that was actually 6-on-3 with Rinne pulled. When Philadelphia coach Dave Hakstol challenged for offside and lost, the Predators had the man advantage, and Forsberg scored the winning goal top shelf.

Hakstol was surprised he lost the replay review.

Kansas City picks up back-to-back first downs for the first time in the game.

The Chiefs currently have it on their own 37 with 1:30 to play in the quarter.

Pittsburgh’s drive is stalled after a holding penalty and the Steelers punt it back to Kansas City. Le’Veon Bell is up to 117 rushing yards for the Steelers, while Kansas City has recorded just 25 yards of total offense.

Kansas City moves the chains once, but Tyreek Hill drops a third down pass and the Chiefs punt again. The Steelers will start their drive at their own 10 with 8:28 to play in the third quarter.

Chiefs running back Charcandrick West is currently being evaluated for a concussion.

Peterson admitted last week that he was frustrated with his ever-shrinking role in New Orleans because of “the type of player that I am, knowing I have so much left in the tank.”

But he also continued to insist there was no animosity between him and Payton — and that the infamous sideline glare that was captured on video in Week 1 was overblown and not what it looked like.

The players seem to have some built-in advantages in such a dispute. Unlike the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement, the NFL CBA does not specifically require players to stand for the anthem. There is, however, a section in the NFL Game Operations Manual that mentions that players “should stand at attention, hold helmets in their left hand and refrain from talking.” And commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to teams on Tuesday reiterating the language.

But Dombrowski also has hired only two managers over the last 12 seasons. Jim Leyland has insisted he isn’t coming out of retirement, while Brad Ausmus was recently fired after a last-place finish with the Detroit Tigers. It’s unclear whether former Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek could be a candidate. Varitek works for the team in an advisory capacity but has never managed.tigers_050

the Bengals are a game out of first in the AFC North.

Gase noted the crowd also lobbied unsuccessfully for Moore during a victory over Tennessee last year, when Ryan Tannehill was the struggling starter.

“That’s fine,” Gase said. “I’ll make the decision about the quarterback. We’re not going to take public polls.”

Cutler — playing his first game in Miami as the Dolphins’ QB — acknowledged he heard the chants too.

“I didn’t know what they were saying, and I don’t think anyone was going to tell me what they were saying,” Cutler said. “I just kept going about my business.”

Despite an offense that has scored three touchdowns in four games, the Dolphins (2-2) climbed to .500. The Titans (2-3) lost for the second week in a row.

“I understand the ups-and-downs,” Green said. “You know me, I’m pretty level all the time. The drops hurt, but you just have to erase everything.”

After losing their first three games, the Bengals (2-3) salvaged their season by getting the ball to their stars at decisive moments. Green’s 47-yard catch set up a 5-yard touchdown run by Joe Mixon that put Cincinnati ahead to stay in the fourth quarter.

Combined with Pittsburgh’s 30-9 loss to Jacksonville on Sunday, the Bengals are a game out of first in the AFC North.

The Bills (3-2) got their season off to an encouraging start by relying heavily on kicker Stephen Hauschka and a defense that led the league in stinginess, allowing only 13.5 points per game through the first four. The combination wasn’t enough this time as Buffalo’s depleted offense failed to take advantage of Cincinnati’s three turnovers.x (8)

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch continued to sit during the anthem.

“It’s really disheartening when everything that I was raised on was to be the best person I could be to help people that need help and the vice president of the United States is trying to confuse the message on what we’re trying to put out there. I don’t know what else to say about it.”

Around the NFL on Sunday, at least seven players from two teams knelt during the national anthem while three Miami Dolphins players and the Tennessee Titans’ Rishard Matthews remained in the tunnel or locker room for the anthem.

Eddie Lacy, RB, Seattle Seahawks: With Chris Carson’s (ankle surgery) season finished, Lacy became fantasy owners’ most popular pick from the Seahawks’ backfield in Week 5, his 50.7 percent ownership and 17.0 percent start rate in ESPN leagues easily greater than Thomas Rawls’ 34.3 and 5.6 percent and J.D. McKissic’s 9.2 and 1.9 percent. Lacy unfortunately flopped, his 3.8 PPR fantasy points worst of the three, despite his managing the most carries of the trio (nine, compared to Rawls’ eight and McKissic’s two). It was the ninth time in his 23 games played since the beginning of 2015 that Lacy finished with five PPR fantasy points or fewer.

The Lions can feel pretty confident that Cooter, still only 33, won’t pull a Sean McVay quite yet and get his own head-coaching gig in the near future. Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin has seen his name come up in several head coach searches, but the Lions are lucky to have had him in place for the entire Caldwell tenure. As both are an extension of Caldwell, it’s easy to get player-friendly schemes designed to bring out the best in each individual.

There has been dysfunction in the past in play-calling and producing complementary football in Detroit. That’s no longer the case, as the plan is firmly in place to keep everyone on the same page week after week, season after season.x (7)

The Cardinals finally got going when Palmer threw a 13-yard TD pass to John Brown to cut it to 21-7.

Agholor’s TD catch was on third-and-19. He blew past safety Budda Baker, caught Wentz’s perfect pass over the shoulder and used a spin move and stiff arm to reach the end zone.

I shouldn’t have been able to make the throw, but Jason Kelce made a great block on two guys, Wentz said about his center. And then Nelly made the guy look silly.

Wentz made a mistake late in the second quarter after guiding the Eagles to the Cardinals 25. He overthrew Ertz and Antoine Bethea made a toe-tapping interception in the end zone.

The career arcs of Luck and Manning are going to be linked forever, and right now, Luck’s is following the injury-marred portion more than the perennial-contender portion.

Manning’s coronation this weekend has that element of a homecoming, a triumphant return, of course. If the NFL world was just and fair, none of that would be a factor — Manning, of all of the superstars of this era, should have worn the same uniform his entire career. If anyone should have been a Colt for life, it was him. (Then again, Johnny Unitas didn’t get to be one, but again, that’s the NFL, then, now and forever.)

But Manning got hurt, his contract became an albatross, the Colts were paralyzed as a franchise and owner Jim Irsay purged everything and everybody.

Hearing on Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension set for next month

An appeals court next month will hear arguments on a stay that has kept Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott on the field while his suspension makes its way through the court system.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed Friday to hold oral arguments between the NFL and NFL Players Association. The session is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET on Oct. 2 in New Orleans.

Now the question is this: Who else is primed for a huge game this week?

Our weekly ESPN Insider cheat sheet provides a rundown of the greatest hits from all of our Insider fantasy football content. You’ll find answers to the top questions of the week, along with injury updates, matchup advantages and wild-card plays from Eric Karabell, Tristan H. Cockcroft, Mike Clay, Al Zeidenfeld, Matt Bowen, KC Joyner and Scott Kacsmar. It’s all the best tips, distilled into one handy file.

Here’s what our experts are saying about Week 3:

If you’re new to fantasy football, we recommend just sticking with the default PPR fractional scoring setup. You’ll see big scores and have lots of ways to field competitive players.

If you want to get more adventurous with your scoring settings, you can tighten them up by making higher yardage thresholds (say, one point per 15 rushing yards, instead of 10) or giving 0.5 points per reception (instead of 1.0). Or you can go the other direction, and look to boost your scoring ability even more by granting bonuses for 100-yard rushing/receiving performances or 300-yard passing games.

You can also include quarterback sacks as a negative, increase or decrease the impact of turnovers, safeties and kickoff and punt return yardage and scores.

If you choose individual defensive players, you can choose how much you want to weigh each interception, sack, stuff, tackle, etc.

The same goes for head coach positions, choosing the weight of team scoring, win, loss and margin of win/loss.

J.J. Watt’s hurricane relief fundraiser ends with more than $37 million raised

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt began the Hurricane Harvey relief effort with a goal of raising $200,000. He raised more than $37 million.

Watt closed his fundraising effort Friday, overwhelmed by the generosity of those who donated to assist the victims of the devastating storm that made landfall around Houston Aug. 25.

While his national anthem protests and subsequent inability to find NFL employment have generated most of the conversation, the former 49ers QB has now given $900,000 to charitable organizations since last season as part of his pledge to donate $1 million to a variety of causes.

Though Kaepernick does not currently have a job, the NFLPA pointedly noted in a news release that anyone who is a dues-paying member of the organization and on and NFL roster “or actively seeking employment as a free agent” is eligible for the award.

As part of the recognition, the NFLPA will make a $10,000 donation to Kaepernick’s foundation or a charity of his choice.

Texans star J.J. Watt took the honor at the end of the preseason last week for his Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

Since 1994, kickers have gone 15-for-71 on attempts between 60 and 65 yards. With the game on the line in the fourth quarter and overtime, those same kickers were 4-of-21 before injury fill-in Jake Elliott atoned for an earlier miss from 52 by hitting a 61-yarder to beat the division rival Giants and cap a thrilling second half.

She got her doctorate from Ohio State. When you’re 5 years old and you’re seeing your dad have a gun pointed at his head because he looks suspicious in the neighborhood at 6 a.m. because he’s dropping his son off at a babysitter, it’s not about race. It’s not about black and white, it’s about right and wrong.
