Zulgad: Vikings' GM sends a clear message with deadline deal for T.J. Hockenson

  Zulgad: Vikings' GM sends a clear message with deadline deal for T.J. Hockenson The Vikings entered this season coming off back-to-back non-playoff years and with a new general manager and head coach. This created unknowns about how GM Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and coach Kevin O'Connell would operate. Would they be aggressive or hang back, especially in…Would they be aggressive or hang back, especially in their first season, and let things play out? That question was answered a few hours before the NFL trade deadline on Tuesday with the acquisition of T.J. Hockenson from NFC North rival Detroit.

Given Mortal Kombat and DC's crossovers over the years, it may be unsurprising to learn that Kano is canon to the Batman: Arkham series. Rocksteady's main Batman: Arkham trilogy received high praise, and had several spin-offs over the years. The main spin-off title most fans will recognize is WB Games Montréal's severely underrated Batman: Arkham Origins - which saw the Arkhamverse's Batman's initial confrontation with long-term nemesis The Joker - however, the series spawned a few portable titles too, with 2.5D side-scroller Batman: Arkham Origins - Blackgate on PS Vita (later ported to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360), and fighting title Batman: Arkham City Lockdown on mobile devices.

In the Mortal Kombat series, Kano is a member of the Black Dragon Gang, a group of international arms dealers who the Special Forces have been trying to take down for decades, but in Batman: Arkham City Lockdown (which featured a story set between Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City), he seems to be tied to Deathstroke's thugs instead. If players start the Gotham Steel Mill's EMP Challenge, a challenge in which all opponents carry short-range EMP devices that remove the option for Batman to use any gadgets and must defeat them purely in hand-to-hand combat, they take on three different thugs before fighting against Kano as a secret boss in place of Deathstroke, who is usually the boss for that location. Throughout the battle, Kano can be seen wielding his trademark Butterfly Knives, but he is a somewhat easy boss and can be defeated quite quickly by the Dark Knight.

After standout game, Patrick Peterson dons chains on Vikings’ flight home

  After standout game, Patrick Peterson dons chains on Vikings’ flight home ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — How good was cornerback Patrick Peterson’s game on Sunday? He was selected to wear chains around his neck on the Vikings’ flight back to the Twin Cities. After three previous road wins, Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins got plenty of publicity for wearing chains on the plane that teammates put around his neck. Videos made it onto social media, including one with the quarterback dancing shirtless while wearing seven or eight chains following a 20-17 win at Washington on Nov. 6.

Batman: Arkham City Lockdown Was The First Of NetherRealm Studios' DC Projects

Kano's appearance is due to Batman: Arkham City Lockdown's developer, NetherRealm Studios, having recently taken the reins of the Mortal Kombat franchise following Midway Games' bankruptcy in 2009, and Warner Bros' acquisition of the series. Batman: Arkham City Lockdown was released in 2011, the same year as NetherRealm Studios' first game, Mortal Kombat (the ninth installment in the series), and its remake of the series' previous entries as the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Mortal Kombat and the DC Universe had crossed over prior to Batman: Arkham City Lockdown in Midway Games' final entry in the Mortal Kombat series, a non-Arkhamverse title called Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe. Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe featured a story mode that could be played from either the perspective of Mortal Kombat's characters or their DC rivals, and was generally well-received for its use of the DC license but did get some criticism from fans for toning down Mortal Kombat's iconic and violent finishing moves.

NetherRealm Studios later revisited the Arkhamverse in 2013 with its mobile version of Batman: Arkham Origins, which featured similar gameplay to Batman: Arkham City Lockdown. Unlike Batman: Arkham City Lockdown, NetherRealm's Batman: Arkham Origins largely followed the premise of its main console and PC counterpart, in which an inexperienced Batman has a bounty put on his head and must fend off several assassins on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, due to this, NetherRealm didn't seem to feature any Mortal Kombat cameos in the mobile Origins. That same year, however, NetherRealm released the first in its standalone Injustice series, which saw a rift in the DC Universe in which Superman becomes a tyrant following a traumatic event, and several members of the Justice League either opt to side with or oppose him, with legendary Batman: Arkham voice actor Kevin Conroy returning as Batman.

Although the Batman: Arkham and Mortal Kombat crossovers haven't continued over the years - with the version of The Joker in Mortal Kombat 11 being separate from Rocksteady's series - Kano's appearance in Batman: Arkham City Lockdown wasn't the only Mortal Kombat cameo in the Arkhamverse. Eagle-eyed fans were able to spot Kitana in the main version of Batman: Arkham City as one of The Penguin's unnamed prisoners in the Iceberg Lounge. With Rocksteady currently returning to the Arkhamverse with Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, it's yet to be seen whether more of Mortal Kombat's fighters make an appearance alongside DC's antiheroes.

Dane Mizutani: Vikings refuse to let horrendous officiating overshadow greatest comeback of all time .
When the Vikings weren’t trying to give away Saturday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts at U.S. Bank Stadium, the officials were actively trying to take it from them. Never mind that the Vikings played the worst 30 minutes imaginable. Never mind that coach Kevin O’Connell seemed to panic for the first time in his very short tenure with Minnesota. Never mind that the game itself looked like a total system failure for prolonged stretches. As the Vikings mounted an impossible comeback against the Colts, the ineptitude of referee Tra Blake and his officiating crew threatened to derail it. They were brutal throughout the game, and that’s being kind.
