Whicker: Rams bite the dust in another tug-of-war with the physical 49ers

In the tightening NFC West, the Seattle Seahawks play San Francisco in the 15th game. The Arizona Cardinals play San Francisco in the 16th game. They like that. The Rams are done with San Francisco. They really like that. Styles make fights in pro football, just like boxing, and the Rams keep losing the boxer-slugger matchup to the 49ers. Maybe it’s just the way one lineman feels confident against another, even though they aren’t equals in all the other weeks. Maybe it’s just a mojo that one def...

Chargers DE Joey Bosa has monster outing in loss to Buffalo Bills

Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa struggled to acknowledge his massive statline after Sunday’s 27-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills. “I mean it’s great … it just sucks,” Bosa said. “I really, really wanted to pull that one out. And it’s hard to feel excited after such a tough game like that.” Bosa did nearly everything he could to pull out a win at Bills Stadium. He had a career-high three sacks with six tackles for losses, five quarterback hits, eight combined tackles, one pass defended and a fumble ...

Viadera noses out Blowout to win Matriach Stakes at Del Mar

Viadera, a 4-year-old filly bred in Great Britain, continued the Eastern invaders’ dominance during the holiday weekend’s Turf Festival at Del Mar on Sunday, rallying to win the closing-day $300,000 Matriarch Stakes by the slimmest of noses over stablemate Blowout. Turf standouts from the East won all seven graded stakes races during the four-day extravaganza, and the invaders capped it off by sweeping the first four placings in the Matriarch after finishing 1-2-3 in Friday’s $200,000 Grade II H...

Rams, Aaron Donald try to avoid finger-pointing after loss

INGLEWOOD — Aaron Donald displays all the physical tools to dominate the line of scrimmage. What he doesn’t show is a finger of blame to point at teammates in the locker room. If the All-Pro defensive tackle was tempted to pin the Rams’ 23-20 loss Sunday to the San Francisco 49ers on the mistake-prone offense, he didn’t do it, not in so many words. “Anytime we make mistakes as a team, (we’re) going to be down,” Donald said of the Rams’ two fumbles and two Jared Goff interceptions in their first ...

Tonight, you can watch a lunar eclipse, or at least try to

As you sneak some late-night Thanksgiving leftovers, take a moment to marvel at the full moon. Do you notice anything different? It’s subtle, but Sunday night on the west coast or early Monday elsewhere, the full moon should appear a bit darker than usual. That’s because you’re witnessing a penumbral lunar eclipse, a celestial occurrence in which the moon dips behind Earth’s faint, outer shadow, or penumbra. Penumbral eclipses are slight, verging on imperceptible in some cases, says Jackie Faher...

Carr Throws Pick-6, Falcons Rout Raiders 43-6

ATLANTA (AP/CBS13) — Deion Jones returned an interception 67 yards for a touchdown, Matt Ryan threw a pair of short scoring passes, and the Atlanta Falcons thoroughly dominated Derek Carr and the bumbling Las Vegas Raiders 43-6 on Sunday. Las Vegas (6-5) looked very much like a pretender in the AFC playoff race with its second straight loss, a listless, mistake-filled performance against an Atlanta team that’s playing out the season under an interim coach. One to forget.
