A big night in Brooklyn
The big NFL news on Wednesday was the surprising departure of a head coach. Bruce Arians announced he is stepping away from the role of head coach in Tampa; the Bucs immediately ripped up the contract of Todd Bowles and gave him a five-year extension to take over the head coaching job.
The big NBA game on the slate for Thursday is in Brooklyn, where the Nets — with Kyrie able to play at home — will host the Bucks. Could this be an Eastern Conference playoff preview?
Here’s what we’re watching today:
- MLB: Yankees @ Phillies — 1:05 PM ET
- MLB: Nationals @ Yankees — 6:10 PM ET
- NHL: Blue Jackets @ Islanders — 7 PM ET
- NHL: Devils @ Bruins — 7 PM ET
- NBA: Bucks @ Nets — 7:30 PM ET
What do we do?
The Mets and Astros were tied at the end of nine innings on Wednesday. And neither manager knew if they were going to play extra innings! (They did, and the Astros won 5-3 in 10 innings.)

Slumping Knicks drop another one
