Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is under arrest. Sheriff’s deputies in Arapahoe County, Colorado, say Jeudy was taken into custody today on misdemeanor criminal tampering accusations. A domestic violence enhancer has been added. Further details have not been released. Jeudy was drafted by the Broncos in 2020 out of Alabama.

The 2022 NFL regular season schedule is out. To open the season, the reigning Super Bowl Champion Los Angeles Rams will host the Buffalo Bills in the first game of the new season on Thursday, September 8th. Thanksgiving games will also feature the Bills at the Detroit Lions, the Dallas Cowboys hosting the New York Giants, and the New England Patriots in Minnesota taking on the Vikings. With Christmas on a Sunday, most games that week will be played on Saturday. But three games will remain on Christmas, including the Green Bay Packers at the Miami Dolphins, the Denver Broncos at the Rams, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Arizona Cardinals.

NFL Schedule 

It’s time to start circling dates on the fall calendar. The 2022 NFL Schedule will be released tonight. All 32 teams from around the league will find out when and where they will be playing this upcoming season. The NFL has been releasing sneak peeks at the upcoming schedule leading up to tonight’s release, including a big time Week 10 showdown between the Cowboys and Packers at Lambeau. The defending Super Bowl Champion Los Angeles Rams have the toughest strength of schedule heading into the season.
NBA Playoffs

Milwaukee Bucks 110, Boston Celtics 107 (Bucks lead 3-2)

Memphis Grizzlies 134, Golden State Warriors 95 (Warriors lead , 3-2)

The Grizzlies aren’t going down without a big fight and Jrue Holiday is proving he might actually be the best defender on the planet in NBA Playoff action. Memphis led by as many as 55 before obliterating the Warriors 134-95 in Game Five in Memphis without Ja Morant. The Warriors still lead the series 3-2. In Boston, Bucks guard Jrue Holiday stripped Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Smart in the waning seconds as Milwaukee defeated the Celtics 110-107 to take a 3-2 series lead. Tonight, the Suns look to close out the Mavericks in Dallas, and the Heat look to finish off the 76ers in Philadelphia.

The NBA is naming Nuggets center Nikola Jokic the winner of this year’s league MVP award. This is the second consecutive MVP for the Denver big man. He finished in first place ahead of Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid and Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo. Jokic received 65 out of 100 first place votes and 875 total points. The 27-year-old is the 13th player in NBA history to win back-to-back MVPs.

Tom Brady is joining the Fox Sports family after he retires in a monumental 375-million-dollar deal. The ten-year deal with Fox becomes the largest contract in sportscasting history and more than doubles both CBS’ Tony Romo and ESPN’s Troy Aikman in average annual salary. On top of being Fox Sports’ number one game analyst, Brady will also be a company ambassador to assist in sponsorships and promotional events. In the meantime, Fox Sports will need to find a game analyst for this year, and maybe a few seasons beyond, while Brady is still playing in the NFL.

The Grizzlies are going to be without their superstar for what could be the remainder of the playoffs. Memphis guard Ja Morant has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his right knee and is doubtful to return this postseason. Morant left Saturday’s Game Three against the Golden State Warriors after his knee was grabbed by Jordan Poole while going for a basketball on a trap near half court. Memphis went 20-and-5 without Morant in the lineup during the regular season. Morant missed nine straight games in and March and April due to right knee soreness.

Angels rookie pitcher Reid Detmers is the first to throw a no-hitter this season. Detmers tossed the 12th no-no in Halos history in a 12-0 rout of the Rays in Anaheim. He allowed just one walk and struck out two in just his 11th big league start. Detmers becomes just the 25th rookie ever to throw a no-hitter. Mike Trout homered twice and drove in three to lead the offense for the Angels, who have won three straight and six of their last seven overall.
