Daily Noontime (Monday, September 28, 2020)

By NoontimeSports.com 

Happy Monday, everyone! 

We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and ready for a great week. And speaking of a new week, did you know we’re just a few days away from a brand new month? Yep, October is on the horizon – perhaps 2020 is moving a bit quicker than previous years? 

Anywho, let’s kick-start a brand new day with the ‘Daily Noontime.’ 

Sunday was a WILD day in the NFL 

Week three of the 2020 National Football League (NFL) was wild – would crazy be a better word to describe some of Sunday’s outcomes?

For starters, you had the Chicago Bears erasing a 16-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons to the Buffalo Bills halting a crazy comeback by the Los Angeles Rams with a game-winning touchdown pass from Josh Allen to Tyler Kroft.  And then there was the Detroit Lions beating the Arizona Cardinals to Russell Wilson throwing five touchdowns against the Dallas Cowboys

Finally, did you watch the Cincinnati Bengals‘ game against the Philadelphia Eagles? The game concluded with a 23-23 tie (in overtime) – did anyone want to win this game? 

The Bengals and Eagles played to a 13-13 tie in 2008, which was something former Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb did not know could happen in the NFL. 

The third week of the season concludes this evening with a tremendous Monday Night Football (MNF) clash between the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs

Are you ready for some postseason baseball? 

The 2020 Major League Baseball (MLB) season is over, which means it is time to move onto a 16-team tournament – yay! 

Unlike past seasons, MLB will have 16 teams compete for the ultimate prize – eight teams on each side – beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, September 29 with Wild Card matchups, which will be followed by the Divisional and Championship rounds. 

The Tampa Bay Rays are the top team in the American League while the Los Angeles Dodgers secured the number one position in the National League. 

Who do we think will win the fall classic? That is a good question, but our gut instinct is either the Rays or Dodgers, but definitely not the New York Yankees

Miami tops Boston in Game 6, Advances to NBA Finals on Wednesday

The Miami Heat secured a date with the Los Angeles Lakers in the National Basketball Association (NBA) 2020 Finals last night by defeating the Boston Celtics in the sixth game of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Miami outlasted Boston, 125-113, to clinch the Eastern Conference championship despite some NBA folks thinking the Green and White would come back and beat the Heat after winning the fifth game of the series last Friday.
