Canada drops in world rugby rankings after loss to United States

Canada drops in world rugby rankings after loss to United States Canada has dropped one spot to No. 22 in the world rugby rankings in the wake of its 20-15 weekend loss to the United States. Canada, the last country to qualify for the Rugby World Cup, enters the tournament later this month as the second-lowest ranked squad in the 20-team field. Namibia is No. 23. Saturday's match at B.C. Place Stadium, the Canadian men's final warmup before leaving for the World Cup in Japan, moved the U.S. up one place to No. 13 in the rankings. Portugal, which is not going to the World Cup, took over Canada's spot at No. 21.

1. New England Patriots (1-0)

Previous Rank: 1

The season might as well be declared over. The reigning champions crushed the Steelers - supposedly one of their biggest challengers in the AFC - with shocking ease. Nobody will be able to prevent the Patriots from hoisting the Lombardi Trophy once again.

2. Kansas City Chiefs (1-0)

Previous Rank: 2

Bianca Andreescu looks to move up in rankings after U.S. Open win

Bianca Andreescu looks to move up in rankings after U.S. Open win TORONTO — Canada's Bianca Andreescu has bigger goals in mind after winning her first Grand Slam title on Saturday at the U.S. Open. The 19-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., says she hopes to win "as many Grand Slams as possible" and become the No. 1-ranked player in the world. Andreescu spoke to reporters in Canada on Wednesday for the first time since beating Serena Williams in the U.S. Open final in New York. The half-hour press conference was held at the Aviva Centre, where Andreescu beat Williams in the Rogers Cup final exactly one month ago when the latter player retired with a back injury after just four games.

Week 1 of the 2018 season is in the books, which means it's time for some massive overreactions in our NFL power rankings entering Week 2 . Still, there are some movers and shakers from our last NFL power rankings , so let’s dive into it all with a team that looked… well, terrible in their season

As they do every week , Bleacher Report NFL analysts Brent Sobleski, Gary Davenport and Brad Gagnon have gotten together to sort through the first weekend of NFL action and slot If Week 1 was any indication, you can Gorilla Glue the Miami Dolphins to the bottom spot in these power rankings .

The Chiefs' offense can't be stopped. Not only will Patrick Mahomes top the 50 touchdown passes he threw a year ago, but he'll also break the single-season record of 55. The Jaguars were the only team he didn't throw a TD pass against last year.

3. New Orleans Saints (1-0)

Previous Rank: 3

New Orleans looked like a championship squad Monday night, but the refs are clearly going to throw a wrench in the Saints' Super Bowl aspirations at some point. A first-half, booth-initiated replay blunder didn't impact the outcome of the game, but it's a matter of time.

4. Los Angeles Rams (1-0)

Previous Rank: 4

Fears about the stability of Todd Gurley's knee were unfounded. Gurley and Malcolm Brown will form a two-headed monster, with Brown scoring the touchdowns and Gurley doing all the heavy lifting between the 20s.

Canadiens appear to accidentally reveal prospect rankings in draft video

Canadiens appear to accidentally reveal prospect rankings in draft video Two months after drafting sniper Cole Caufield 15th overall at the 2019 NHL Draft, the Montreal Canadiens unveiled a behind-the-scenes video looking at their scouting department's process in picking players. However, the video may have let out a little secret. Reddit user u/azdod keenly noticed a piece of paper in the video that ranked 15 players eligible for the draft. The top 10 prospects seemingly listed in the video are as follows, with their respective draft positions added in parentheses: 1. Jack Hughes (Devils, 1st overall) 2. Kaapo Kakko (Rangers, 2nd overall) 3. Trevor Zegras (Ducks, 9th overall) 4. Bowen Byram (Avalanche, 4th overall) 5.

Week 1 of the NFL season did not disappoint. The first slate of games included Patrick Mahomes picking up where he left off, Lamar Jackson shredding the Check out our power rankings below to see where all teams stand heading into Week 2 . It indicates an expandable section or menu, or

5. Philadelphia Eagles (1-0)

Previous Rank: 5

While the 17-point comeback was fun, the Eagles' slow start versus the rebuilding Redskins shows that Philly is closer to the middle of the pack than the elite teams of the NFL.

6. Baltimore Ravens (1-0)

Previous Rank: 14

All eyes were on Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold heading into 2019. But after shutting his doubters up with five touchdown passes, Lamar Jackson might be not only the best second-year quarterback, but also a legitimate threat to win MVP.

7. Minnesota Vikings (1-0)

Previous Rank: 10

While the Vikings are paying Kirk Cousins like a franchise quarterback, they obviously don't view him that way after he only threw 10 passes in a blowout win over the Falcons. Head coach Mike Zimmer is going to fulfill a dream by running Dalvin Cook nearly 400 times in 2019.

Bianca Andreescu rises to 5th in world tennis rankings after U.S. Open win

Bianca Andreescu rises to 5th in world tennis rankings after U.S. Open win Bianca Andreescu, Canada’s first Grand Slam singles champion, has climbed 10 spots in the women’s tennis rankings to a career-high world No. 5 following her U.S. Open victory over Serena Williams on Saturday.

Your Week 2 NFL Power Rankings . 32. Miami Dolphins (0-1). The Dolphins confirmed they were very bad in Week 1, but I don’t know if anyone knew they’d be this bad. Can’t see them budging from this spot over the next four months. 31. Arizona Cardinals (0-0-1).

8. Dallas Cowboys (1-0)

Previous Rank: 8

The Cowboys never needed Ezekiel Elliott to win a championship because Dak Prescott is a legitimate franchise quarterback, as evidenced by his 400-yard, four-touchdown performance in a blowout of the Giants.

9. Los Angeles Chargers (1-0)

Previous Rank: 7

Melvin Gordon who? Not only is the holdout running back expendable, Austin Ekeler is a Pro Bowl-caliber, every-down back who just needed the opportunity.

10. Green Bay Packers (1-0)

NFL Power Rankings - Week 2: Overreactions for every team© Provided by Score Media Ventures INC Stacy Revere / Getty Images Sport / Getty

Previous Rank: 15

The Packers' new-look defense is championship-ready. Sure, the Mitch Trubisky-led Bears won't be the most intimidating offense Green Bay faces in 2019, but defensive coordinator Mike Pettine has all the pieces for a top-five unit.

11. Houston Texans (1-0)

Previous Rank: 12

How's the Laremy Tunsil trade looking now? Ask Deshaun Watson, who was under siege for most of Monday Night Football. The Texans mortgaged their future to acquire a single offensive lineman who ultimately didn't solve their biggest issue. Bill O'Brien's gotta go.

MLB Power Rankings: A's making run, Brewers staying afloat without Yelich

MLB Power Rankings: A's making run, Brewers staying afloat without Yelich This is the 14th and final edition of theScore's MLB Power Rankings for the 2019 regular season. 1. New York Yankees Don't look now, but the Yankees are getting healthy. Dellin Betances and Jordan Montgomery have returned, Luis Severino is set to make his season debut this week, and Giancarlo Stanton should rejoin the lineup just in time for the postseason. Adding Severino to the rotation alongside a cruising James Paxton will boost the club's biggest weakness, and a full-strength Yankees team is bad news for the rest of the league. 2. Houston Astros The Astros are cruising toward a third straight AL West title thanks to an MLB-best plus-255 run differential.

12. Seattle Seahawks (1-0)

Previous Rank: 13

Last season's breakout star Tyler Lockett needed just one catch to score a touchdown Sunday. Ever seen a receiver score a touchdown on every reception? Get ready to be wowed!

13. Chicago Bears (0-1)

Previous Rank: 6

Mitchell Trubisky's ceiling is clear: He's a boom-or-bust passer who will never be consistent or accurate enough to be more than an average starter. Blame a lack of preseason reps all you want, but his erratic play will ultimately cost the Bears a title shot.

14. Tennessee Titans (1-0)

Previous Rank: 20

Meet the new kings of the South. The Browns were who the Titans thought they were, but Mike Vrabel's team deserves a ton of credit for its dominant win. With Andrew Luck's retirement, Nick Foles' injury, and Marcus Mariota's improved efficiency, Tennessee's well on its way to a top-three seed in the AFC.

15. Carolina Panthers (0-1)

NFL Power Rankings - Week 2: Overreactions for every team© Provided by Score Media Ventures INC Icon Sportswire / Icon Sportswire / Getty

Previous Rank: 17

Carolina had a chance to assert itself as a Super Bowl contender at home against the reigning NFC champions. The Panthers faltered, of course, continuing recent history. Christian McCaffrey is the only legitimate weapon on this offense.

16. Indianapolis Colts (0-1)

Previous Rank: 18

A solid performance against the Chargers doesn't change the fact the Colts' season was over the moment Andrew Luck retired.

17. Cleveland Browns (0-1)

Previous Rank: 11

Freddie Kitchens simply isn't ready to be a head coach. The Browns' talent will carry them to a handful of impressive wins, but Kitchens' inexperience and inability to cultivate a disciplined locker room will cost Cleveland a playoff spot.

18. Atlanta Falcons (0-1)

Previous Rank: 9

Matt Ryan looked out of sync, the running game was non-existent, Dan Quinn's defense gave up big plays, and the offensive line was overmatched in a disappointing Week 1 effort. A Super Bowl season clearly isn't in the cards for the Falcons.

19. Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1)

Previous Rank: 16

The Steelers being outcoached by the Patriots is nothing new, but Ben Roethlisberger usually keeps it interesting with a few deep bombs. Despite leading the league in passing during 2018, Big Ben's arm appeared to be in decline. Now, it seems the quarterback's days of dominating downfield are over.

20. Buffalo Bills (1-0)

NFL Power Rankings - Week 2: Overreactions for every team© Provided by Score Media Ventures INC Brett Carlsen / Getty Images Sport / Getty

Previous Rank: 22

After being ignored for basically the entire first half, Devin Singletary only needed four carries, which went for 70 yards, to show that Buffalo made the right decision in releasing LeSean McCoy. The rookie will end the Bills' committee approach by the time Week 2 is over.

21. San Francisco 49ers (1-0)

Previous Rank: 24

All Jimmy Garoppolo does is win. The young quarterback is a career 7-2 as the 49ers' starter. With magic like that, San Francisco will make the playoffs for the first time since 2013.

22. Oakland Raiders (1-0)

Previous Rank: 28

'We're no further ahead': Tatamagouche man angry with NSP after repeated outages

'We're no further ahead': Tatamagouche man angry with NSP after repeated outages Guy Rochon, who owns a small farm in Tatamagouche, said he's had 10 power outages since January. He had to empty his fridge twice in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian. But Rochon, who owns a small farm in Tatamagouche, N.S., said the power going out on his road is a fairly regular occurrence. "Since I've moved here it's been incessant power outages," he said. "And I think this year we're approaching the 10th power outage." Rochon said he has continually contacted Nova Scotia Power in the four years he's lived in the area.

23. Detroit Lions (0-0-1)

Previous Rank: 21

It'll take a few more games for people to admit it, but rookie T.J. Hockenson is already a top-five receiving tight end in the NFL.

24. Arizona Cardinals (0-0-1)

Previous Rank: 27

Not a fan of ties? That's a shame because the Cardinals are headed for the NFL's first 0-0-16 season.

25. New York Jets (0-1)

NFL Power Rankings - Week 2: Overreactions for every team© Provided by Score Media Ventures INC Icon Sportswire / Icon Sportswire / Getty

Previous Rank: 19

Jets head coach Adam Gase isn't the man who's going to make Sam Darnold a star. The young quarterback will have to wait it out while Gase is busy making enemies of both his players and the media.

26. Cincinnati Bengals (0-1)

Previous Rank: 29

Andy Dalton had a career-high 418 yards in a close loss to the Seahawks. The quarterback was assumed to be on borrowed time in Cincinnati, but he could be primed for a mid-career renaissance under new head coach Zac Taylor (let's just call this interception one final throwback).

27. Washington Redskins (0-1)

Previous Rank: 26

Given their relatively impressive showing against the Eagles, it's not too much of a stretch to think the Case Keenum-led Redskins can make a legitimate playoff push.

28. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1)

Previous Rank: 23

The Jaguars are going to be just fine without Nick Foles. Rookie Gardner Minshew displayed the poise, accuracy, and leadership of a veteran in relief of the ex-Eagles quarterback. All eyes were on Kyler Murray, but the top quarterback in the 2019 draft might've fallen to the sixth round.

29. Denver Broncos (0-1)

Previous Rank: 25

The Drew Lock era can't begin soon enough. The Broncos are going nowhere fast until their rookie quarterback enters the fold, so Von Miller should find a way to get the hell out of dodge.

30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-1)

NFL Power Rankings - Week 2: Overreactions for every team© Provided by Score Media Ventures INC Mike Ehrmann / Getty Images Sport / Getty

Previous Rank: 30

Not even Bruce Arians can fix Jameis Winston's flaws. The former No. 1 overall pick will soon be benched again in 2019 after continuing to display spotty accuracy and poor decision-making in Week 1. At least the Bucs can start their Tank for Tua early.

31. New York Giants (0-1)

Previous Rank: 31

Eli Manning threw for 300 yards against Dallas, showing that despite the hype for his rookie backup, the veteran remains the superior option over Daniel Jones at quarterback.

32. Miami Dolphins (0-1)

Previous Rank: 32

Alabama and Clemson would beat this team.

Bianca Andreescu eyes Beijing for return after winning U.S. Open.
MONTREAL — Bianca Andreescu's coach says the tentative plan is for the Canadian tennis star to return to action at the Beijing Open later this month. Sylvain Bruneau says the U.S. Open women's champ likely will play one tournament during the WTA Tour's Asian swing — with the Beijing Open, Sept. 28-Oct. 6 as the target. The Beijing Open is part of the sport's top level of events below Grand Slams like the U.S. Open — called a Premier Mandatory tournament. Bruneau says Andreescu also hopes to qualify for the season-ending WTA Finals, Oct. 27-Nov. 3 in Shenzhen, China. Andreescu, a 19-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., is fourth in the standings for the Finals.
