  NFL Week 1 teaser pick rankings: Why Packers-Vikings features the week's best option, plus our entire top 10 Looking to tease two or more teams in the NFL's opening week? We have you coveredLet's use the Thursday and Sunday night games as an example. The Chiefs are favored by nine points at home against the Texans, while the Cowboys are favored by three points on the road against the Rams. If I wanted to tease the two favorites together using a standard six points, the Chiefs would drop from -9 to -3, while the Cowboys would move from -3 to +3. If I wanted to tease the two home teams, I'd get the Chiefs -3 and the Rams +9 in my teaser.

TRAVIS SHOWTIME

Travis Kelce is putting his experience on the TV screen to good use in a way unlike any before.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end, who starred on his own reality dating show a few years ago, will have a guest role in a new Showtime comedy series called MOONBASE 8. The six-episode series about three subpar astronauts living in a remote NASA moon base simulator stars Fred Armisen, John C. Reilly and Tim Heidecker.

  Meet the eight key figures who helped make the NBA bubble a success When an NBA bubble idea was floated, commissioner Adam Silver was skeptical. Meet key figures who collaborated to make the bubble safe and COVID-free.“When the idea was first broached, it didn’t sound logistically realistic,” Silver said.

WPRI 12 have teamed up with Cardi’s Furniture, and set up “ Toys for Tots” donation centers.

Children can learn a lot from playing. When you give your child educational toys and play with them with her, it gives her a chance to bond with you, learn, and have fun at the same time. And making education enjoyable will help your child retain the things she learns and develop a positive attitude

Kelce certainly has some energy in front of cameras. Whether it’s his touchdown dances on the field or his ability to light up a crowd during the Chiefs’ Super Bowl celebration in February, he always seems to find the spotlight.

He also has a goofball streak. His quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, was asked recently about who he would want to babysit his baby girl, which is due this spring. “I can’t let Trav or anybody like that do it,” Mahomes replied. “I mean, we never know what could happen!”

GIVING BACK

Washington coach Ron Rivera and his wife donated $500,000 to his alma mater California for a new softball facility that will be named the “Rivera Family Cal Softball Field.”

Rivera was a star linebacker at Cal from 1980-83 and Stefanie played women’s basketball at the school from 1983-85. The two met at a frozen yogurt shop near campus when both were students and visit it whenever they return to Berkeley.

The Riveras had previously established a scholarship for the football program in 2002 and try to attend as many games as they can in any sport.

The gift is part of Cal’s gender equity campaign to raise funds for new facilities for softball and beach volleyball.

Cal softball coach Chelsea Spencer has a long relationship with the Riveras. They asked her years ago to help run a softball camp that their daughter, Courtney, attended. Courtney went on to play at UCLA.

“They brought us to their house and inside their family,” Spencer said. “It meant a lot. We kept that connection throughout the years. The passion that the Rivera family has for Cal Athletics is unmatched. For Cal softball, it’s a dream come true for this process to continue with the Rivera family. We’re very fortunate to have them behind us.”

An anonymous donor also offered to match up to $500,000 for the project.

DEMOTION

Ryan Fitzpatrick’s dismay about losing his job as the Miami Dolphins’ starting quarterback was compounded by how quickly the news spread.

“My two boys in middle school, they don’t get to find out from Dad,” Fitzpatrick said. “They get to find out through a friend that got a text message. So that part of it is just the world we live in now.”

Coach Brian Flores, who told Fitzpatrick he was promoting Tua Tagovailoa to the starting job, was also annoyed the news leaked Tuesday before he could tell the entire team.

Fitzpatrick said his boys didn’t take the news too hard.

“They probably dropped me from their fantasy teams,” he said, “but other than that they still love me.”
