NFL roundtable: Who is most irreplaceable player in league right now?

  NFL roundtable: Who is most irreplaceable player in league right now? Plenty of NFL teams have put a heavy burden on one player in particular. But who is the most irreplaceable figure in the league right now?On Monday, the Tennessee Titans announced that Derrick Henry would undergo foot surgery and be out indefinitely. Even many of the most optimistic timelines would have him out for almost all of the rest of the regular season, if not the playoffs as well. His loss is a brutal blow for a Titans team that leads the AFC with a 6-2 record. Henry has averaged 29.6 touches per game this year - six more than any other running back - and serves as the focal point of Tennessee's offense.

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Film Critics Circle on Friday named “Drive My Car,” Ryusuke Hamaguchi's intimate three-hour epic and Haruki Murakami’s short story adaptation, the best film of the year.

Hamaguchi's film, about a widowed actor played by Hidetoshi Nishijima, has been widely hailed since its debut earlier in the year at the Cannes Film Festival, where it won for best screenplay. “Drive My Car,” which recently opened in limited theatrical release, is Japan's submission to the Academy Awards. It's only the second time in the last four decades that the critics' top honor went to a non English-language film. (The other was Alfonso Cuaron's “Roma” three years ago.)

Opinion: Mark Ingram's return to New Orleans when the Saints need him most

  Opinion: Mark Ingram's return to New Orleans when the Saints need him most With Jameis Winston and Michael Thomas lost for the season, Saints ignite fan base and locker room by bringing back beloved running back Mark Ingram.So, along comes Ingram, to not only reunite in the backfield with multi-tasking dynamo Alvin Kamara and add a layer of support for fill-in quarterback Trevor Siemian, but also to, well, liven up the joint.

Jane Campion's Montana gothic drama “The Power of the Dog” led all films with three awards. Campion took best director, Benedict Cumberbatch won best actor and best supporting actor went to Kodi Smit-McPhee.

The New York critics, as it typically does, otherwise spread its honors around. Best actress went to Lady Gaga for her performance as Patrizia Reggiani in Ridley Scott's “House of Gucci.” Kathryn Hunter won for her ghostly witch in Joel Coen's upcoming Shakespeare adaptation “The Tragedy of Macbeth.” Paul Thomas Anderson took best screenplay for his coming-of-age comedy “Licorice Pizza.”

Michael Rianda's robot apocalypse-family road trip comedy “The Mitchells vs. the Machines” won best animated film. Best cinematography went to Janusz Kamisnki for Steven Spielberg's “West Side Story” revival. Maggie Gyllenhaal's Elena Ferrante adaptation “The Lost Daughter” took best first film. Best documentary went to Jonas Poher Rasmussen's animated refugee tale “Flee." And Joachim Trier's “The Worst Person in the World,” a chronicle of youth and love in Oslo, Norway, won for best foreign language film.
