EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Odell Beckham Jr. did something no man, woman or child who saw it will ever forget, and the shame of it is that the artist made his art on an unworthy stage for the benefit of an unworthy cause. The Catch belonged right where Dwight Clark's did -- in an epic NFC Championship Game. It belonged right where David Tyree's and Mario Manningham's did -- in the New York Giants' forever Super Bowl triumphs over the Bradys and Belichicks. It was completely out of place in a Sunday night, regular-season game pitting a 3-7 Giants team against a Dallas Cowboys contender with a recent history of falling flat on its face mask. But what the hell, there it was on the first play of the second quarter in what would be the Giants' sixth consecutive defeat. Beckham was going deep, Eli Manning was heaving it up in his direction, and Dallas cornerback Brandon Carr was committing a felony or two on the rookie receiver in his attempt to prevent...
BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox, not content to wait for third baseman Pablo Sandoval's decision as to whether he will sign with the club, reportedly have come to terms with Hanley Ramirez??on what is expected to be in the range of??a five-year, $90 million agreement, FoxSports.com reported Sunday. Ramirez was set to arrive in Boston on Monday to finalize terms of the deal, according to the report. One major league source however, told ESPN that the deal between the Red Sox and Ramirez is not finalized and is for greater than the five-year, $90 million deal that's been reported. Another source told ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick that Ramirez was "close" to a deal with Boston. Adam Katz, Ramirez's agent, declined comment Sunday night, and numerous Red Sox officials did not respond to requests seeking confirmation. Ramirez, who turns 31 on Dec. 23, has primarily played shortstop through the course of his 10-year career but has also...

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- There was considerable discussion about what New England Patriots running back Jonas Gray would do for an encore after rushing for 201 yards, being named AFC Player of the Week and landing on the cover of a national sports magazine. The debate centered on whether his performance was an anomaly or the start of a productive, electric Patriots career. Here's what he did on Sunday: nothing. Nothing at all. Gray stood on the sideline with his helmet strap carefully tucked around his chin without getting onto the field for a single snap while his team completely dismantled the Detroit Lions 34-9. You don't need to be a Rhodes Scholar or an analytics genius to discern that Gray's tardy arrival at practice Friday played a major role in his disappearing act. It's one thing to be an All-Pro cornerback who shows up late to the facility, as Darrelle Revis did earlier this season -- and still started...
