Giants’ unprecedented road to wild card starts now

By GARY MYERS New York Daily News Now that the Giants finally have victory No. 1, all they need to do is keep winning. No NFL team has ever started 0-5 and made the playoffs. That’s not just a big hole to climb out — it’s an earthquake-sized crater. But there has to be a first time for everything. The Giants locker room was on the verge of imploding last week, but can now bond and rally around a common goal after their huge upset in Denver on Sunday night: Let’s make history together. Why not? First, some reality. The NFC East title is out of the question. The Eagles are 5-1. The Giants are 1-5. Washington or Dallas may catch the Eagles, but the Giants are four games back with 10 games remaining and they already lost in Philadelphia. So, let’s concentrate on the wild card. Remember, there’s two of them. The Packers are likely without Aaron Rodgers, who broke his collarbone, for the rest of the season. Brett Hundley is now the QB unless the Packers attempt to talk Wisconsin native Tony Romo out of the television booth. The Vikings are starting Case Keenum. Ryan Fitzpatrick will be starting in Tampa if Jameis Winston’s shoulder does not respond quickly. Washington barely beat the 49ers by two points at home. Want some turmoil? How about the Cowboys being...

Jim Furyk to invite Americans to see Ryder Cup course in France

By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer Le Golf National outside Paris, the host course of the Ryder Cup next year, has been part of the European Tour schedule since 1991 and last year was the 25th time it has held the French Open. So along with the European crowd, that’s one big advantage for the home team next year. U.S. captain Jim Furyk hopes his American team can find time to see the course ahead of the September matches, even if they don’t play the tournament. The French Open is three weeks before the British Open, held the same week as The National on the PGA Tour schedule. “We seem to have a bunch of players that hang out together,” Furyk said Tuesday in France. “I would love to see them make a trip here before The Open Championship or after The Open Championship and see the golf course.” He said he would extend the invitation to the top 15 or 20 players in the U.S. standings. Furyk understands each player sets his own schedule, which includes obligations and rest, and he said it’s not going to be a requirement. For American players, especially those on the bubble, it might not be a bad idea. Asked if it would be a strong recommendation to see the course, Furyk replied, “I think it’s going to be an ask and an...

Celtics star Hayward suffers gruesome injury in opener

CLEVELAND (AP) — Just five minutes into his Boston career, new Celtics star forward Gordon Hayward gruesomely broke his left ankle, an injury that may end his season. Hayward, who signed a four-year, $128 million free agent contract this summer, went up for an alley-oop pass midway through the first quarter and collided with LeBron James. Hayward’s leg twisted underneath him as he came back to the floor. The 27-year-old collapsed under the basket and looked in horror as his left foot was pointing outward. He put his hands to his face and dropped back to the floor as a hush fell over the charged sellout crowd inside Quicken Loans Arena, which had come to boo Kyrie Irving in his return to Cleveland after being traded to Boston this summer. Hayward’s new teammates huddled in prayer at their bench as a distressed James covered his mouth and several Cleveland players nearby looked away. Hayward had his leg placed in an air cast, and James came over and consoled him before the he was pushed from the floor on a stretcher and taken for treatment. Cleveland’s crowd gave Hayward a roaring ovation as he left. The Celtics later confirmed that Hawyard’s left ankle was broken. It’s a devastating blow for the Celtics, who had overhauled their roster with the signing of Hayward and acquisition of Irving in hopes of closing...
