Stanford ran train over Michigan State on Saturday, bringing home an impressive 45-16 Rose Bowl victory.

Christian McCaffery put on a heroic performance as the game's star running-back, but the poor kid couldn't catch a break from an adrenaline-charged douche who did everything but grab the fu*king microphone and chuck it through the goalpost during McCaffery's interview.

Real-talk bro, GTFO. There's fan, superfan, and whatever the heck that guy in the background was. Don't be that guy.

The New England Patriots played all day as if they were wearing ankle weights against the New York Jets, but still managed to push the game past regulation into overtime with a late and shining moment of clutch city from Tom Brady. Let's just say things went downhill fast soon as OT started.

In an act of madness the Patriots chose to kickoff, after winning the coin flip for overtime.

Whoops?

Unsurprisingly it took the Jets a mere five plays to drive down the field for a six-yard TD pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Eric Decker for the win.

Jean Francois showed off these cleats, which depict Darth Vader and Kylo Ren to the eager eyes of the internet today. Francois plans on hitting the gridiron tonight against the Eagles, sporting these flashy new cleats. Let's just say the force is strong with this one. Lightsabers not yet NFL approved though.

So, it turns out Ryan Fitzpatrick has a laugh on par with the Pillsbury Doughboy. The laugh itself is more of a shock than Nick Mangold's photobomb.

The greatest highlight from today's NFL Sunday games was William Gay's "excessive celebration" against the Bengals. A flag was tossed and things took a turn for the amazing. Can you get double flagged for celebrating too hard?

You may remember his teammate Antonio Brown captured our hearts last week when he went full Super Mario Bros during his celebration:



Great work out there, team.

Nebraska had a disappointing season, ending with a 5-7 record. Husker fans have a lot of feelings about it too. So when Wide Receiver Brandon Reilly went out to eat and encountered a server who wanted to rant about the Huskers, apparently not realizing who was sitting at the table, he decided to leave her that "tip" instead of a monetary one.

Reilly ended up pulling down the tweet after responding to some heated tweets about it.

Bayern Munich was down 0-1 in the half facing rivals Wolfsburg Sept. 22. Then they subbed in Robert Lewandowski.

The striker and captain of the Poland national team wasted no time in turning the tide. He scored five incredible, separately interesting goals in only 15 minutes of play.

It was nuts.



The last was the prettiest one of the bunch:

People say that college football is boring and doesn't have enough #drama. Well, those people clearly didn't watch the Minnesota vs TCU game last night.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers opened up their season by taking some extreme measures to make sure they came out on top against the No. 2-ranked Horned Frogs.

What was the team's secret? This very dramatic chipmunk.

Minnesota broadcast this classic meme on the jumbotron in an attempt to distract the TCU kicker during field goals.

Alas, Minnesota tried their sneaky chipmunk trick, but TCU ultimately came out on top with a 23-17 win.

Next game, Doge. Much football.

Vindication of the Day: Judge Overturns Tom Brady's DeflateGate Suspension

In another twist and turn of the #DeflatgeGate saga, Tom Brady's 4-game suspension has been lifted by a court.

Judge Richard M. Berman nullified the NFL's suspension in a 40-page decision, which basically stated that the league didn't do anything right in investigating accusations the New England Patriots deflated footballs during the Super Bowl.

Deadspin summed up the decision in these three points:

The NFL is expected to appeal, which could reinstate Brady's suspension. But the Internet still had a lot of feeling about today's decision...

Even Snoop Dogg got in on the action, criticizing the suspension reversal on Instagram.

Arena football fans might have come to cheer for the Arizona Rattlers, but they yelled the loudest for dance choreographer Oscar Hernandez.

In the middle of a halftime performance by the Rattlers' cheerleading squad the Sidewinders, the women received another player on the field who just wanted to dance.

Although he wore the uniform and sported the size of a linebacker, the 6'2", 280-pound man was actually the one who composed the dance. He proceeded to shock the audience with his stellar moves and his surprising splits.

Sporting News profiled the dancer after his YouTube success:

Hernandez is the man behind many dances you may have already seen, even if he looks like he should be running into and over people instead of telling them where to stand and step. He's been dancing since age 5, cheered and danced at Apollo High School in Glendale, Ariz., and in 2002, broke into the business as a dancer and choreographer with the Phoenix Suns. He's never played a down of football, but still gets mistaken for someone who has.

Hernandez has worked with dozens of professional teams since 2002 — the Nuggets, Warriors, Sonics, Blazers, Pistons, Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals and Lions among them. He helped choreograph the 2009 NBA All-Star Game halftime show in Phoenix.



Here's a closer view of his action:

Ohio state football fans walk 19 miles to spell out the state.

An Ohio State football fan doesn't need to walk 19 miles to prove their love, but it doesn't hurt.

That's what Redditor orweezy and some friends decided to do. But they didn't do it for the mileage, they did it to spell out the four most important letters to them.

Orweezy told his story Aug. 17.



My coworker friends and thought it would be cool to start off the football season by mapping and walking the Ohio Script this past weekend and using the stadium as the "I" dotting.

...We got like 8 miles into it and thought.... "you know this would have been better if we biked it" It took us 6 and a half hours of walking but we made a few bar stops so from 6:30am through 2:45pm. We were doing a work competition about fitness and the metrics used was time, so we walked everywhere and I think we just carried it over. I would rather bike it next time for sure.



The Ohio State Buckeyes will kick off their season on Sept. 7.

Real Madrid player and underwear model Cristiano Ronaldo became slightly less ridiculously good looking last week and kicked a soccer ball around with a clueless kid in the streets of Madrid.

He wore a shaggy wig with fake mustache/beard, sunglasses and a baggy sweatsuit, and he carried a blue backpack. Look… he’s just like us!

The two played juggled the ball around a bit without drawing any attention.

He eventually removed his disguise, revealing his true identity to the boy and everyone else in the street who immediately pull out their phones to take pictures.

Before walking away, he gave the boy a hug and signed a ball for him.

A few players on the St. Louis Rams decided to hold a little protest of their own on Sunday, prior to their game against the Oakland Raiders, by entering the field with their arms up to show support for the protesters in Ferguson.

Tavon Austin, Kenny Britt, Stedman Bailey, Jared Cook and Chris Givens all participated in the stunt before pregame introductions, with the coach denying any advance knowledge of it.

The St. Louis Police Officers Association is not amused. They are asking the NFL to issue an apology calling it "tasteless, offensive and inflammatory."

But the Rams are standing by their actions.

"I just think there has be to a change," said Cook. "There has to be change that starts with the people that are most influential around the world."

In their game against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught a pass from Eli Manning with just one hand, scoring a touchdown.

Unfortunately the Giants lost 31-28, but that catch though...

"That is absolutely impossible what he just did," said NBC commentator Cris Collinsworth. "That may be the greatest catch I've ever seen in my life.

The NFL tweeted that Odell's catch basically pulled a Kardashian butt.

And it has also inspired some "Things Odell Could Catch" memes on Twitter.

Whoever handles the Patriots' social media is probably not having a very fun Friday at work - assuming they are still employed.

To celebrate their 1 millionth follower on Thursday, the Patriots asked people to retweet an image of a digital jersey to receive a customized version with their Twitter handle on the back.


The account then tweeted out a thank you to an account with an extremely racist username, complete with an accompanying jersey emblazoned with the slur.

They have since deleted the offensive tweet and apologized for the "filtering" error.
