Game 162 = celebration time for Mets fans

This is a big drive for the Redskins and Kirk Cousins. After some crushing defensive series they need to answer and Cousins needs to have success in the fourth quarter to lead a comeback.

Not a good first inning for Cole Hamels. Albert Pujols unloads with a two-run homer and Hamels throws 19 pitches. Rangers bullpen is very thin today so Hamels has to get that pitch count down and pitch reasonably deep into this game.

Panthers take advantage of Bucs' turnovers
