On Friday night, a dad wanted to send a message to his son at the Cavs vs. Hornets game.
Hugo wore a similar red shirt as Thomas’ dad and stood in the crowd on Tuesday night trying to woo Thomas to become a Hornets fan with promises of assistance. How would Hugo help the boy achieve better grades?

With their backs to the wall, the Bears outlasted a two-hour deluge and then out-fought the Ravens to claim a vital home victory. Josh McCown made just enough hay with Alshon Jeffery while a struggling defense turned back the clock with a pick-six among two interceptions of Trent Dilfer Joe Flacco. Jay Cutler’s return will be welcomed, but he might not represent a huge upgrade over Josh McCown’s strong play. If whoever is under center can keep Jeffery and Brandon Marshall fed, they might pull out enough shootouts down the stretch to nab a very winnable NFC North.
It’s not hard to see why. Though Toledo ranked 21st in rushing success rate, the Rockets’ breakdowns were immense. They allowed 89 rushes of 10-plus yards (114th in FBS) and 30 of 20-plus (116th). A solid set of safeties prevented these rushes from going 30 or 40 yards, but the top two safeties are gone. The glitches near the line must stop.
Earl Watford Game Jersey Safety could be a concern, but the rotation was a little larger in the back, and nickel backs Josh Teachey and DeDarallo Blue could be ready for big roles. And the Rockets are loaded at cornerback — not only do starters Trevon Mathis and Ka’dar Hollman return, backups (and former star recruits) Aaron Covington and Marcus Whitfield do, too.
Pass defense should again be solid, but Toledo’s fate in specific games could depend on how many glitches the Rockets are dealing with in the ground game.
