  • Derrick Henry continues to make his case for the NFL's MVP honors after racking up three touchdowns Monday night against Buffalo.
  • As first reported by Cleveland.com, the Cavaliers and guard Collin Sexton failed to come to an agreement on the deadline of a potential contract extension. The former Alabama standout will become a restricted free agent following the season.
  • Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had the misfortune of being on the wrong side of history in snapping the Jacksonville Jaguars' (seemingly terminal) losing streak, but upon return from an injury to his ribs the former Alabama standout performed well, all things considered. And the data backs that statement.

On this date in Crimson Tide history:

October 19, 1935: Playing with a broken bone in his left leg, Paul Bryant starred in Alabama's 25-0 win at Tennessee. The Atlanta newspapers doubting the story of the injury requested to review x-rays, which indeed revealed a broken fibula, before using the account of Bryant's handicap in its features on the game. Alabama's first touchdown came on a pass to Bryant who then lateralled to Riley Smith. A key block by Bryant after the pitch to Smith enabled him to score.

Crimson Tide quote of the day:

"It was just one little bone." – Paul W. “Bear” Bryant on playing with a fractured leg against Tennessee in 1935.
