Matthew Stafford warms up on the field.

Matthew Stafford’s debut with the Los Angeles Rams was a successful one.

The former Detroit Lions quarterback led his team to a win over his old divisional rival, the Chicago Bears. Stafford and the Rams crushed the Bears, 34-14, to open the season with a nice victory.

Stafford played very well, throwing for 321 yards and three touchdowns on 20 of 26 passing in the season-opening win.

Rams head coach Sean McVay was extremely impressed.

The rest of the NFL world was pretty impressed, too. Stafford playing in McVay’s offense with the Rams weapons should be pretty fun to watch moving forward.

It’s only one game, but the Rams have to be very happy with their trade for the former No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick.

Stafford and the Rams’ offense looked like a team capable of making a deep playoff run,

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton on Sunday against the 49ers.

Cam Newton is opening up about his release by the New England Patriots.

Heading into Week 1, the Patriots decided to release the veteran quarterback, naming rookie Mac Jones the team’s starting quarterback.

Newton recently gave a brutally honest admission on his release.

“Let me be honest with you… if they would’ve asked me, if they said, ‘Cam, we’re going to give the team to Mac, you’re going to be the second string. We expect you to be everything and some to help guide him through this tenure’ — I would’ve said, ‘Absolutely,’” Newton said in his latest YouTube video.

ESPN made a savvy signing earlier this month, adding Robert Griffin III to its team for the 2021 football season. On Saturday, he made his debut on College GameDay.

Griffin, a former Heisman Trophy winner, has made several TV appearances in the past. However, there’s something special about College GameDay that separates it from ESPN’s other shows, like Get Up or SportsCenter.

Though it’s extremely early in his broadcasting career, it appears college football fans already like what they’re hearing from Griffin.

“ESPN found them a gem in Robert Griffin III,” Bryce Hayes of SB Nation tweeted. “He’s been good TV every appearance I’ve seen so far.”

“Robert Griffin III is killing this GameDay thing,” one fan wrote. “He’s gonna have a long career in this!”

“Robert Griffin III was made for this job,” another fan said.

South Dakota ace Gavin Weir throws his second no-hitter in 2021 Little League World Series

Another game for Gavin Weir, another no-hitter for South Dakota.

South Dakota topped California 1-0 in the Little League World Series behind a no-hitter from Weir on Wednesday. The team advances to play on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. ET.

Weir’s outing produced South Dakota’s second no-hitter in the 2021 Little League Series. He threw all six innings and recorded 14 strikeouts after combining with a reliever on Friday for South Dakota’s first no-hitter of the tournament. No player even made contact with a pitch of his until the third inning.

Weir threw over 65 pitches on Wednesday, so he will not be eligible to be on the mound for the championship game on Sunday if the team advances that far. Up first is the winner of Ohio vs. California in the Tom Seaver bracket championship on Saturday
