Marcus Peters’ incredible interception makes SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays

Peters’ incredible interception makes SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

On a day where several Ravens starred in Baltimore’s 33-16 victory over the Houston Texans, it was cornerback Marcus Peters who had the play of the day.

Worldwide coronavirus cases top 18 million

A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 687,000 people worldwide.

Over 18 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks.

Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 4.6 million diagnosed cases and at least 154,841 deaths.
