Week of October 17th, 2016

Each week I will write about the world of sports:

*Auston Matthews came into the NHL with a lot of attention as the #1 pick. He had quite the debut, scoring four goals for Toronto, though the Leafs lost to Ottawa in overtime.

*Tom Brady GOAT gets better and better! Now he has Rob Gronkowski back, making the Pats even more dangerous. 

*The key to the college football playoffs is survive and advance. That is what Ohio State and Clemson did, both winning tough tests.

*Odell Beckham Jr. came through big-time with 222 receiving yards and a pair of scores in a win over the Ravens.

*Wow, they say Jim Boeheim will have a special team at Syracuse. We will find out soon!

*In the second half of the season. the San Francisco Giants bullpen really hurt them. The Cubs eliminated the Giants by scoring four runs late in the NLDS. 

*Vanderbilt's win at Georgia was a real shocker. It was the Commodores' first SEC road win under coach Derrick Mason. The Bulldogs are now 2-3 in the tough SEC.

*Trouble in South Bend as Irish struggles continue. The loss to Stanford left them 2-5.
