On That’s Amaury’s News and Commentary:
#1 Las Vegas Raiders struggled against Baltimore Ravens all Monday Night Football but came out a winner in the end with a 33-27 victory. The Raiders Derek Carr threw for an amazing 435 yards and two touchdowns for the opening night win.
#2 The San Francisco 49ers on Sunday had control of their game against the Detroit Lions 31-10 at the half but the Lions attempted a come back in the second half scoring six points in the third quarter and another 13 in the fourth quarter and almost caught the 49ers as San Francisco gets by with a 41-33 win to open the season.
#3 Once again the Oakland A’s ran into a Texas Rangers club that gave them fits. The A’s who lost two out of three from the Rangers over the weekend are now three games back for a shot at the wild card. The loss on Sunday even tougher for Oakland losing to the Rangers 4-3.
#4 The San Francisco Giants would up clinching for a playoff birth the wild card at the very least but looks like they working to try and win the division a tight race in the NL West between the Giants who have just a 2.5 game lead either way Giants have played some exciting ball lately when they were in Chicago and Monday night against the San Diego Padres.
#5 Amaury, The Toronto Blue Jays maybe eight games behind the first place Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East but the Jays are the hottest team in baseball winning eight of their last ten games and hold a half game lead in the AL Wild Card over the Boston Red Sox. As the A’s know from their trip to Toronto the Blue Jays offense poured it on and the A’s like other clubs know how difficult it is to play a team like the Blue Jays.
