#sportswrap: Thousands Yard Passing and Steelers’ Hope

30 Dec

Every week, the Ticketforce team will bring you a recap in the sports, theatre, music and racing industries. This week, we showcase #theatrewrap!

Brady To Wow NFL Fans…Maybe
Tom Brady has some competitive statistics, one of which may steal him the NFL record for most throwing yards. The New England Patriots’ quarterback has currently thrown 4,897 yards – a mere 103 yards from reaching the 5,000 yard record held by Drew Brees. In an article from the Boston Herald, Brady is quoted as wanting to beat the Buffalo Bills and is quite humble: “Personal records and anything like that, really, in a team sport, to me, there’s just not any emphasis on those. We’re trying to win team awards.” Do you think he’ll do it?

Durant Says “Nothing Happened”
Maybe nothing happened, but words were definitely exchanged in an altercation from Wednesday night’s game. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook had to be separated during the game Wednesday, but ask the players what happened and they’ll remain completely mum. In an interview from CBS Sports, Westbrook was quoted denying any allegations of the altercations, stating, “Oh, I don’t know what you’re talking about. But we have a game tonight [Thursday] and I’m looking forward to playing against Dallas.” Durant gave the same answer, responding, “People keep saying we had this and that happen on the sideline. Nobody seen nothing. They didn’t hear anything.” Did you catch the game Wednesday and “not see” the altercation?

Roethlisberger to End Season on his Good Foot
Football seems to be attempting quite the feat with these end of season attempts. Ben Roethlisberger, quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is reported to be practicing on his sprained ankle, in hopes to play in the New Year’s Day finale Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. In an article from the New York Times, Roethlisberger has stated, “I don’t want to let the guys down, so I’ll do what I can to be out there.” Will he play? A lot is riding on this finale – with the Steelers needing to beat the Browns in order to win the AFC North.
